Bentley announced that it would start production of its first fully-electric car in 2025. Bentley plans to invest $3.4 billion in sustainability over the next decade.
Bentley’s facility in UK’s Crewe will produce these electric cars. Volkswagen AG parent company of Bentley has planned to shift to a fully-electric model line-up by 2030. This would go a long way in reaching the goal of switching its entire fleet to fully battery-powered vehicles by the turn of the ongoing decade.
“Our aim is to become the benchmark not just for luxury cars or sustainable credentials but the entire scope of our operations,” Bentley Chief Executive Officer Adrian Hallmark said in a statement.
Among rivals, Aston Martin, Ferrari, and Rolls-Royce have plans of rolling out Electric cars.
