What almost all car manufacturers have been doing lately is turning their focus to electric vehicles and there is no exception, whether it is small city vehicles, limousines, sports, and luxury cars, or off-road beasts like Hummers, all switching to electricity.
In some cases, a gradual transition to e-engines is announced, but it is not known when companies intend to completely discontinue the production of vehicles with petrol and diesel engines, but sometimes these boundaries are set quite firmly and quite clearly.
Such clear boundaries for a complete transition have also been set by luxury carmaker Bentley, from which they have announced that they will fully switch to electric motors by 2030. So, after that year, it will no longer be possible to buy a new Bentley that will run an internal combustion engine. The first part of this plan refers to the gradual transition, so from 2026 Bentley will offer only electric and hybrid plug-in models, and four years after that it will no longer produce hybrids.
This decision should come as no surprise when it is known that Bentley is part of the Volkswagen Group, whose future, as the German company has repeatedly pointed out, is related to electric vehicles. Next year, Bentley should present the first two models of hybrid vehicles, and as CEO Adrian Hallmark pointed out to the media, during this decade it will carry out a transformation and become a ” new and sustainable ethical model” for other companies in the market.
