Bentley set to go fully electric by 2030

Luxury carmaker Bentley has unveiled plans to go fully electric by 2030 after making the decision to become one of the car industry’s leaders in environmental sustainability.

The carmaker said its environmental targets would make it “financially resilient and recession-proof” as it looks to protect itself from the coronavirus downturn, which has damaged car sales.

“Within a decade, Bentley will transform from a 100-year-old luxury car company to a new, sustainable, wholly ethical role model for luxury,” said Adrian Hallmark, Bentley’s chief executive.

Electric cars are growing in popularity and sales have tripled in the UK so far this year.
