Bentley’s first electric car to be built in Crewe

Bentley’s first electric car to be built in Crewe

Luxury car manufacturer Bentley has revealed that it will invest £2.5 billion as it moves towards making electric vehicles.

The first Bentley electric vehicle will be designed, developed and produced at its headquarters in Crewe, England.

This announcement is a major boost to the team at Crewe and will also allow a fundamental reinvention of the Crewe manufacturing infrastructure. Crewe will become a ‘Dream Factory’ - a digital, zero environmental impact, flexible and high-value manufacturing facility.

Adrian Hallmark, Chairman and CEO of Bentley Motors, said:

“Simultaneously accelerating our Beyond100 strategy and securing BEV production at Crewe, alongside a £2.5 billion investment, makes this a major landmark in Bentley’s 102-year history. It is a shining light for the Bentley family, our suppliers and partners, as well as the automotive industry and UK manufacturing as a whole.

“This latest announcement regarding Bentley’s Beyond100 plan confirms the initiation of a major transformative phase in the company’s long and illustrious history. The world is changing and we need to play our part in neutralising our environmental impact. That means delivering on our aim to be end-to-end carbon neutral by 2030, and reaffirming our role as the leader in sustainable luxury mobility.”
