Not all concepts gain unanimous approval, but the EXP 10 Speed 6 coupe that was displayed last March in Geneva falls in the “build it now” category.
Bentley CEO Wolfgang Dürheimer is certainly very aware of this: “The customer response was phenomenal, and we want to build it and make it a reality”.
Since Bentley is already known to be evaluating a coupe that would sit below the Continental GT in its range, the EXP 10 Speed 6 would make for a very good candidate indeed.
It’s what Dürheimer told Top Gear next that caught us by surprise: “This would be a truly exciting direction for Bentley to go in, and we are seriously considering alternative powertrains. Maybe even full electric.”
An all-electric Bentley? Why, with “400 to 500bhp” it would fit the bill perfectly. Plus, it makes much more sense than the
insult large SUV that is the Bentayga or the smaller one that’s the second candidate for a future model in the company’s line-up.
Electrification is going to be the next big thing within the VW Group, to which the British brand belongs. Audi is already putting the finishing touches to the Q6 – plus, after Dieselgate, EVs could help it in reconstructing its tarnished image.
