Bentley Akan Berhenti Menjual Kereta Petrol Sama Sekali Dalam 10 Tahun
Kemewahan hari ini masih diukurkan dengan saiz enjin dan bilangan silinder. Bentley dan Rolls Royce adalah dua syarikat yang masih menjual kenderaan 8 dan 12 silinder hingga hari ini, tetapi untuk yang pertama, ini akan berubah dalam satu dekad. Syarikat itu telah berjanji dalam strategi Beyond100 mereka untuk tidak menjual apa-apa barangan kecuali kenderaan elektrik sepenuhnya pada tahun 2030. Nampak gayanya sudah tak boleh lari lagi.
Kami sudah menyaksikan Bentley memperkenalkan varian hibridnya dengan SUV Bentayga mereka dan kami tiada keraguan bahawa lebih banyak hibrid akan mendatang. Sebenarnya, menjelang 2026, syarikat itu mengatakan bahawa setiap enjin petrol yang mereka hasilkan akan memasuki PHEV. Ya, tidak akan ada Bentley berkuasa petrol tulen menjelang 2026.
Ini bermakna enjin V8 dan W12 dari Bentley akan hilang dalam hanya 6 tahun sahaja lagi.
Bentley Motors has outlined plans to become a global leader in sustainable luxury mobility with further details of its Beyond100 strategy revealed today. With the promise to offer truly sustainable luxury, Bentley will reinvent every aspect of its business to become an end-to-end carbon neutral organisation as it embarks on its second century. The target is driven by a transformation programme across Bentley’s entire operations and products. This includes switching its model range to offer exclusively plug-in hybrid or battery electric vehicles by 2026, and full electric vehicles only by 2030.
The announcement highlights Bentley’s plans to provide extraordinary mobility for the next century, evolving from the world’s largest producer of 12-cylinder petrol engines to having no internal combustion engines within a decade, reinventing itself as a leader in sustainable luxury mobility.
The Beyond100 strategic plan is an extension of two decades of forward thinking, innovation and achievement. Acutely aware of the responsibility to consider its environmental, social and economic impact, Bentley has transformed its 80-year-old headquarters into the UK’s single carbon neutral luxury car factory. In parallel, the luxury marque has grown to operate in more markets than ever before, 68, while creating a long-term, consistent, sustainable business model, a truly solid basis to build for a second century.
End-to-End Carbon Neutral
Bentley’s aim to become an end-to-end carbon neutral luxury car brand by 2030 will be underpinned by a structured, business-wide sustainability programme. This includes the development of electrified models throughout the range, and further improvements on its operational environmental impact, that of its tier one supply chain and collaborating with its retailer network.
Bentley’s approach to redefining its business model will be built around its accelerated journey towards electrification. Having already committed that every model line will be offered with the option of a hybrid variant by 2023, with Bentley’s first pure electric model to be launched in 2025, Bentley is today announcing a move towards zero emission mobility.
Following the introduction of the first Bentley fully electric model in 2025 – Bentley’s first cradle to grave fully carbon neutral car – Bentley will exclusively offer plug-in hybrid and electric models only within its range in 2026. By 2030, this will change to battery electric vehicles only.
Bentley’s electrified future was previewed with the reveal of the all-electric EXP 100 GT concept car in its centenary year, which also featured a multitude of sustainable materials. These included 5,000-year-old copper-infused Riverwood, traditionally produced wool carpets and a leather-like textile upholstery made from a bi-product of wine-making. Bentley will continue to use only sustainably sourced materials throughout its current, and next generation of cars.
