Bentley changing its ways with EVs


Bentley will transition to an all-electric lineup by 2030, reveal its first full electric vehicle in 2025, and use the interim to hybridize its lineup and roll out a number of special editions and limited runs to say goodbye to its legacy gasoline-guzzling powertrains, including its W-12.

Bentley will take full advantage of its place in the Volkswagen Group for its first EV, which is expected to be built on the group’s PPE platform. A second EV, due in 2026, is expected to be built on the SSP unified EV platform.

EV SUV: Bentley’s first EV is predicted to be an SUV when it arrives in late 2025 or early 2026. It is expected to live alongside the Bentayga initially in the lineup before fully replacing the model by 2030. According to executives, the EV will boast a range in excess of 300 miles.

EV sedan: The luxury brand’s second fully electric vehicle is expected to be a sedan built on Volkswagen Group’s SSP platform but isn’t expected to arrive until very late in 2026 or early 2027.

Bentayga: The Bentayga will get an extended-wheelbase version in the first half of 2023 to make it more competitive in certain portions of the luxury SUV segment and will continue to offer a variety of powertrains and trims while it awaits its transition to a fully electric powertrain.

Flying Spur: Bentley introduced a Flying Spur hybrid in 2021. The luxury brand is expected to offer some limited-edition runs of its halo sedan while it awaits a transition to a fully electric powertrain in the latter half of the decade.

Continental GT: The two-door is expected to undergo a reengineering in 2024 to incorporate a plug-in hybrid powertrain. The brand is expected to offer a number of limited-edition one-offs, likely from in-house team Mulliner, after the reengineering.
