Bentley plans to take on Tesla with a luxury electric car

Bentley wished to meet a new challenge: adapt its car’s luxury and performances to new electric models, without altering the driving pleasure and comfort. That is now possible with the new EXP 12 Speed 6e.


Bentley knows it well; its customers only want to benefit from the same unparalleled luxury that the brand brings to each of its vehicles. So Bentley EXP 12 Speed 6e reflects the same luxury standards as the brand’s gasoline-fuelled vehicles, while being an electric car.

So Bentley EXP 12 Speed 6e combines cleverly new technologies, Bentley’s craftsmanship as well as all first choice materials regularly used in its vehicles, meaning a true level of refinement.

Then amateur can be reassured, the electric vehicle’s conception does not alter these qualities. Indeed, Bentley EXP 12 Speed 6e is able to provide the same exhilarating drive than gasoline vehicles, and remains a grand touring supercar. Indeed, the brand wished to build a vehicle able to drive from London to Paris, or Barcelona to Roma, without ever charging the battery. And these technical skills perfectly merge with Bentley’s high technologies.


Once inside Bentley EXP 12 Speed 6e, the owner finds this unparalleled level of luxury common to all Bentley’s vehicles. He has access to on-board concierge services from his car through the central console.

The cabin is never cold and still refined, and the Bentley EXP 12 Speed 6e wishes to satisfy both the driver and the passenger. The central console is protected by a curved glass and has an high definition OLED screen that gives him a quick access to the cabin’s commands such as navigation, entertainment and climate control.

From the steering wheel, Bentley EXP 12 Speed 6e’s driver can also have access to the car setting, the navigation, medias and communication control but he also can boost the rapid inductive charging vehicle or limit speed. Finally, passenger also has access to his own console with social medias, e-mail and entertainment.

Outside, Bentley EXP 12 Speed 6e appears to be elegant, futuristic and athletic, to represent Bentley’s car future. The 3D mesh grill as well as the smoked finish identifies the vehicle as an electric Bentley. When the car is running, the “6e” logo then illuminates and brings a bright white light to the vehicle’s silhouette.

Bentley EXP 12 Speed 6e’s form and aerodynamics are inspired by aircrafts and reveal all the supercar’s potential. The front is short, the bonnet is long, the grill lower and the rear wider, a true revolution!

And if the inductive battery is not available, Bentley has integrated an auxiliary charging point that can be connected to any AC power supply, discretely hidden behind the rear number plate. With the Bentley EXP 12 Speed 6e the brand’s future is already there!
