Bentley's first electric sedan in 2025 will have advanced autonomous driving

【PhoneAuto News】Recently, according to foreign media reports, Bentley’s first all-electric car will adopt advanced autonomous driving technology. Bentley CEO Adrian Hallmark confirmed in an interview with British automotive media that the brand’s first electric car will initially offer partial autonomous driving functions on highways. Full autonomous driving will be launched later and may be upgraded through OTA.

Hallmark also confirmed that Bentley will use Mobileye’s SuperVision technology. The SuperVision system is equipped with 11 cameras and will also be used in the upcoming Porsche Macan EV. Although it was initially thought that Bentley’s upcoming electric car would be a luxury sedan or crossover, it now appears that it may also be a sporty two-door coupe. Last year, Hallmark revealed that Bentley’s first electric car will have a powerful output of up to 1400 horsepower and can achieve 0-60 mph acceleration in 1.5 seconds.

Even in the electric era, such power parameters are unlikely to appear on SUV models, but this possibility cannot be completely ruled out. Hallmark also hinted that Bentley’s first EV will launch a “low-performance version” targeting customers who feel uncomfortable with the 1400 horsepower output.

According to previous plans, Bentley plans to launch a new electric car model every year from 2025 to 2030. This luxury car manufacturer has also invested more than 3 billion US dollars in the Crewe factory to transform it into an electrified production site.

Another famous British ultra-luxury car brand, Rolls-Royce, will launch its first electric car this autumn. It is called Spectre, a super luxury electric coupe built on the same platform as the gasoline-powered Wraith and Cullinan. Spectre adopts a dual-motor layout and is equipped with a 120 kWh battery pack. It is said that the car has a range of 310 miles (about 500 kilometers). It can achieve 0-60 miles/hour acceleration in 4.4 seconds and a maximum speed of 155 miles/hour (250km/h), but it seems to have some gap compared to Bentley’s first electric car.
