Bentley’s plans for its first electric vehicle have faced delays, pushing the introduction of the EV to 2026 with customer deliveries expected in 2027. The luxury automaker is also extending its timeline to go fully electric by 2033, allowing for more investment in plug-in hybrids for a smoother transition.

The inaugural EV will be based on the Premium Platform Electric co-developed by Porsche and Audi, with a focus on high-performance plug-in hybrids until the EV lineup is established. Bentley’s first EV is anticipated to have a range of 350 to 450 miles on a single charge and will feature a Speed version with significantly more power than traditional internal combustion engines.

The company is investing heavily in PHEVs to meet rising demand, with plans to introduce a V8 PHEV setup in 2024. Bentley’s current sales are led by the Bentayga, followed by the Continental GT/GTC and the Flying Spur. Total deliveries in 2023 decreased by 11 percent to 13,560 units
