The Bentley EXP 12 Speed 6e: Could It Be The New Tesla Competitor?
Following after the recent unveiling of their electric convertible EXP 12 Speed 6e concept at the ongoing Geneva Motor Show, Bentley motors may have just widened its field of operations as an anticipating crowd has been given the first look of the said model which is said to be a convertible with an electric powertrain. However, despite this latest revelation by the British luxury automaker, it was found that little has been revealed when it comes to its electric motor and its power, and the size and range capability of its battery pack. That said, the company claims that their EXP 12 Speed 6e will allegedly define the electric luxury segment.
The Bentley EXP 12 Speed 6e
According to reports revealed by Wired, the Bentley EXP 12 Speed 6e concept is said to have a high-performance powertrain with a potential range of 310 miles, having a state-of-the-art, on-board concierge- style services that will be made available at just a push of a button, or rather the tap of a screen. When it comes to the screen, the interior central console is reportedly made up of one solid section of a curved glass which leads up to a high-definition OLED display. It was also found that one of the favorite sections of some enthusiasts is one button at the top of the cut-away steering wheel, with a so-called whimsical "rocket" illustration, can instantly boosts performance while giving its passengers their own control panel in order for them to access social media, email and entertainment.
Furthermore, in one of his statements reported by The Financial Express, Wolfgang Dürheimer, chairman and chief executive of Bentley Motors explains that the Bentley EXP 12 Speed 6e has the appropriate technology, high quality materials and refinement levels that you'd normally expect from a true Bentley, which, in turn, is a concept to show that Bentley is truly defining the electric motoring in the luxury sector. Additionally, the company describes the car's design as something that is muscular and athletic, and that the twin bonnet scoops' purpose is to serve as heat sinks that can allegedly supply additional cooling to the battery and powertrain. Another unique feature of the Bentley EXP 12 Speed 6e is that it has decided to retain the grille, adding a 3D geometric design and copper highlights since electric cars do not need a traditional cooling grille at the front.
Bentley's Future Plans
Meanwhile, Dürheimer concludes that the company will always be committed to offering an electric model in its future portfolio, which also excites the company in receiving the feedback on the said concept. Ultimately, Bentley explains that it aspires luxury car buyers such as the millennials, members of Generation C and the rising affluent in developing economies to include the new electric car on their list of possible purchases.
