Bentley May Launch EV by 2025

Bentley is considering launching its first full-electric vehicle to help reduce its fleet CO2 emissions as lawmakers throughout the world introduce stricter reduction targets. If approved, the EV would be launched before 2025 on a platform under development by Volkswagen Group sister brands Porsche and Audi.

Bentley has amongst the highest carbon footprints of any brand at the group due to its reliance on heavy sedans and the Bentayga large SUV. So far, the automaker has only considered plug-in hybrids as a response to more stringent CO2 emission limits.

There is nothing sacred in this world any more. Just yesterday I saw the Bentley SUV. Why are they doing this to the cars, why? And what's next, an e-Maserati? Makes sense.

You'd think that it'd be an obvious make to turn to EV's. The ride is so much better in an EV.
