Bentley Commits to being Exclusively BEV Producer by 2030

Bentley has committed to making its first luxury BEV at its UK production center securing the future of its 4,000 current employees.
The move is part of its £2.5Bn ($3.3Bn) in sustainability over the next ten years and the first BEV is expected to roll off the Crewe production line in 2025. Bentley says this is a vital step in its Beyond100 strategy aimed at turning the company into a pure electric manufacturer on the way to becoming end-to-end carbon neutral by 2030.
Adrian Hallmark, chairman and CEO of Bentley Motors, said: “Beyond100 is the boldest plan in Bentley’s illustrious history and in the luxury segment. It’s an ambitious and credible roadmap to carbon neutrality of our total business system, including the shift to 100% BEV in just eight years.
“Our aim is to become the benchmark not just for luxury cars or sustainable credentials but the entire scope of our operations. Securing production of our first BEV in Crewe is a milestone moment for Bentley, and the UK, as we plan for a long-term sustainable future in Crewe.”
