Bentley, the British luxury brand belonging to the Volkswagen group, confirmed a while ago that its first electric car would not arrive until 2025. The vehicle will make use of the PPE electric modular platform, which is currently being developed by Audi and Porsche and that we can find in the next Audi A5 e-Tron and the second generation Porsche Macan, which will be 100% electric.
During a recent interview, Adrian Hallmark, executive director of Bentley, has given a series of exciting new clues about Bentley’s future electric range. They emphasized reliable electrolyte batteries, a technology that will hit the car market precisely in the middle of the next decade.
Hallmark says he does not want to take an existing Bentley model “and place batteries in it,” but to develop an entirely new vehicle that does not compromise efficiency and autonomy — taking into account that the PPE platform will be exclusively for electric cars.
