Bentley will build an electric four-door sedanNovember 12, 2017
The British manufacturer intends to develop a four-door model with an electric power unit.
The luxury four-door electric car of the British will receive the platform Porsche Mission E, informs the edition of Automobile Magazine, referring to its own source.
When exactly the Bentley lineup will be replenished with an electric novelty is not reported, but the supposed name Barnato is already known. This was the name of the famous British rider Wolf Barnato, who was a member of the Bentley Boys auto enthusiasts group, also the three-time Le Mans champion (in the 1920s-1930s).
Specifications of the electric vehicle Bentley are still unknown. Let’s remind, at Porsche, presumably, there will be a system with two electromotors total capacity of 600 hp. As expected, acceleration from zero to the first “hundred” will take 3.5 seconds, and the power reserve will be about 500 km.
By the way, Porsche has already started road tests of its first electric car, which it plans to start serial production in late 2019.
