In fact, the Bentley plans to market the production version of the two-door convertible was in 2021.
On the other hand, Bentley boss Wolfgang Durheimer also said that electric cars will be different than others because it does not leave the typical style of the Bentley driving experience. “The electric car is not limiting the luxury and performance,” said Durheimer, as quoted from Auto Express.
It is certainly not separated from the kitchen spur sector. Because the driving heart of the Bentley EXP 12 Speed 6e is claimed to be capable of producing 604 bhp with a similar reach cruising 496 kilometers if the battery is fully charged. Quite stunning and energy efficient.
According to him, the Bentley EXP 12 Speed 6e electric car is indeed built using the same platform with the variant J1. In fact, the chances are also that the platform will also be used in electric cars Porsche Mission E with four wheel drive system. Of course, with these additions, the Bentley electric car also will not lose its identity in terms of design.
In addition, please note that before the electric car is marketed, Bentley will also be introducing some plug in hybrid vehicles. The first product that will be powered by a combination of conventional propulsion heart and an electric motor that is Bentayga SUV. Followed by Continental GT.
