It had been clear for a while that electric will be the way to go in the future. According to Bentley, the desire of their customers to be eco-friendly has been so strong that they are already trying to work out a plan for the next 20 years.
Bentley added that while the current version of the Bentley Continental GT might not be getting an electric engine, the next-gen model could very well get an electric powertrain.
He did not elaborate mode on it but he did say that the vehicle would be more ethical. This is a huge change as the current Continental GT is far from being an ethical model with its huge 6.2-liter W12 engine under the hood.
It will be interesting to see where Bentley takes it from here but of course, it would be years before we could see it happen.
