The new Bentley electric car


Electric seem to be popping up more and more these days. Luxury brands have pretty much ignored the electric market because perhaps they are not bougie enough? Bentley, against the odds, just revealed a new all-electric concept that could represent an expensive new frontier.

The EXP 12 Speed 6e is Bentley’s first electric car, and man is it nice. The car is making its debut at the 2017 Geneva International Motor Show and is intended to get Bentley customers thinking about whether they’d ever like to drop a couple hundred grands on an electric Bentley.

“It represents a first step on a journey that will change the way today’s drivers think about mobility and what it can be,” the company said in a press release.

 Bentley says the car can drive about 306km after having been charged only once. That’s like from here to Johannesburg to Bloem.

The exterior of the EXP 12 Speed 6e is white and the interior is burgundy leather. There are copper accents on the car’s dials and knobs, and in the grill, which also features a light-up “6”.

Since it’s just a concept as of now, Bentley doesn’t list a price. Bentley’s tend to star at the $180 000 range and go up from there. So if you are looking to buy this car, then you’d probably have to contemplate whether you need your second kidney or not.

 Right now, electric cars like the ones Tesla makes are nice, but not quite something that would feature on The Fast and The Furious. Regardless of this Bentley’s concept could be the first in a surge of luxury electric cars.
Thata Bentley!
