2017 Geneva Motor Show – Bentley EXP 12 Speed 6e EV Concept
And, we’re off! Let the Geneva automotive madness begin with the Bentley EXP 12 Speed 6e EV Concept. The car manufacturer has officially announced their intentions to take on the electric luxury segment and possibly make Tesla worry, in a cool way to be exact. This concept aims to support Bentley’s idea that an all-electric model will not compromise the quality, refinement and high-performance levels they are known for. Feel free to anticipate features such as instant torque and acceleration and grand touring range, coupled with rapid inductive charging and state-of-the-art on-board concierge services. As you’d also expect, high-quality materials and refinement levels are also part of the offering – are you thinking about the production-ready car already?
In the meantime, please note Bentley’s iconic mesh grille, with an intricate 3D geometry and smoked finish, as well as that the “6e” logo illuminates in a vibrant white. Other aesthetic cues include the wing mirrors – camera, to be exact – inspired by the aerodynamic form of stealth aircraft fuselages. On the inside, the Bentley EXP 12 Speed 6e shows off a curved glass center console, comprising a high-definition OLED screen that controls navigation, entertainment, as well as climate control – feel free to include social media access, e-mail and entertainment on that list. There’s no info on the all-electric powertrain, but there’s bound to be rumours flying around as soon as possible.
