In a report from Auto Express (via Auto Blog), Bentley lead designer Stefan Sielaff has confirmed to the publication that electric cars are something that they will be looking into in the near future. He was quoted as saying, “A full electric Bentley is something I am extremely convinced we have to do. It will happen not so far in the future.”
It might be too early to tell what Bentley might come up with, but when asked what Sielaff had in mind, the designer said that he was looking to make it a completely fresh and new development as opposed to imitating another concept. He also states that this would give the team “a great chance to establish a completely new design language for the company.”
It’s not a surprise that Bentley is tossing their hat into the ring because like we said, many carmakers have started to get into electric cars as well. Let’s not forget Tesla who have been making waves for creating electric cars with incredible performance and looks, something that we’re sure many super car makers will want a slice of.
