All car manufacturers are competing to equip environmentally friendly cars or electric cars. One of them is Bentley. This emission-free car trend cannot be avoided in the future. In fact, the previous Bentley CEO, Wolfgang Durheimer, determined that the sub-Bentayga was no longer a concept car. Soon the car will be mass-filled as an electric car.
This was also confirmed by the current CEO, Adrian Hallmark. To Automotive News Europe, he said that it was heading towards an electric vehicle.
Considering the time period, Bentley is expected not to use the J1 construction of the Porsche Taycan electric car as the Electric Premium Platform which is currently being developed by Audi and Porsche.
Then, why did the British manufacturer change the twin-turbocharger engine Bentayga W12 into an environmentally friendly engine?
“Currently in the process. Our target is before 2025,” such as disitat from Autoevolution.
To achieve this goal, Bentley even turned the engine into a 6-cylinder for Bentayga Hybrid. The machine was different from the 6-inline of Speed Six in the 1920s. But the engine still produces 455 Tk of power and 700 Nm of torque with an electric motor.
Reflecting on the bigger things, the Volkswagen Group has also reduced the number of cylinders in a few years. A8 for example, is the installation of a W12 engine on Audi. In addition, Lamborghini also recognizes that the 5.2L and 6.5L V12 V10 will continue to support its products with hybrid assistance technology.
This electric Bentayga was previously exhibited at the 2017 Geneva Motor Show, in the form of EXP 12 Speed 6e. Bentayga electricity will be a heavy weight Porsche 911.
