KEY TAKEAWAYS

  • How many electric cars is Bentley targeting to release starting 2025?

    The company is eyeing to introduce five electric vehicles.
  • Is the goal part of a bigger vision for the company?

    Yes, it is under the Beyond100 strategy, which will redefine Bentley’s credentials as the benchmark manufacturer in sustainable luxury mobility.
  • The announcement of the goal is under the English automaker’s Beyond100 strategy, which is said to “redefine Bentley’s credentials as the benchmark manufacturer in sustainable luxury mobility.”

    Earlier, Bentley revealed its £2.5 billion sustainable investment that will lead to the development and production of the first Bentley electric vehicle.

    “The announcement is a major boost to the team at Crewe, the region, and of course the UK as a sustainable base for high-value manufacturing. The investment will also allow a fundamental reinvention of the Crewe manufacturing infrastructure, and help secure Bentley’s future at Crewe for the next generation of products and colleagues. Crewe will become a ‘Dream Factory’ — a digital, zero environmental impact, flexible and high-value manufacturing facility,” Bentley said in a statement.

    Bentley shared that it has already made enormous strides in reinventing the historic Crewe site by creating an industry-leading certified carbon neutral facility, and the new investment and acceleration of the Beyond100 strategy will now be the basis to reduce Bentley’s carbon footprint across all products and non-factory operations, in line with Bentley’s commitment to be carbon neutral by 2030.

    Part of Bentley's initiatives will be an extension of on-site energy production at Crewe that is set to increase the number of solar panels from 30,000 to 40,000 in the next two years and exploring the use of sustainable biofuel in fleet cars, including Bentley’s iconic Heritage Collection.

    Bentley’s partners are also being encouraged to support Bentley’s goal of being end-to-end carbon neutral by 2030, with suppliers expected to meet minimum sustainability standards. This will extend to Bentley’s global retailer network, each aiming for carbon neutrality by 2025, possibly even sooner,” the company noted.   

    According to Bentley, the “new Dream Factory includes a go-to-zero approach on the environmental impacts of manufacturing.” After achieving carbon neutral production in 2019, Bentley is now eyeing to cut down water consumption, waste to landfill and other environmental impacts for every vehicle built in Crewe to an absolute minimum until 2030.

    Further, Bentley said that it “already leads the way in the luxury hybrid car sector and will further cement that position with the release of the Flying Spur PHEV in 2022, as well as five additional derivatives, added to the current Bentayga PHEV to meet the diverse needs of Bentley’s  discerning customers.” The brand’s hybrid offerings are expected to comprise more than 20 percent of the total vehicle sales this year.

    “Simultaneously accelerating our Beyond100 strategy and securing BEV production at Crewe, alongside a £2.5 billion investment, makes this a major landmark in Bentley’s 102-year history. It is a shining light for the Bentley family, our suppliers and partners, as well as the automotive industry and UK manufacturing as a whole,” Bentley Motors Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Adrian Hallmark was quoted as saying.

    “This latest announcement regarding Bentley’s Beyond100 plan confirms the initiation of a major transformative phase in the company’s long and illustrious history. The world is changing and we need to play our part in neutralizing our environmental impact. That means delivering on our aim to be end-to-end carbon neutral by 2030, and reaffirming our role as the leader in sustainable luxury mobility,” he added.
