Bugatti, Lamborghini, Porsche, Bentley All Planning Performance EVs

The Volkswagen Group is reportedly keen to expand its electrified plans to its range-topping brands. This could result in all-new, performance-focused hybrid and EV models from Bentley, Bugatti, Lamborghini, and Porsche, Automobile Magazine reports.

Citing an unnamed source, the publication claims Porsche’s long-awaited, all-electric Mission E will sit at the top of this new family and be followed by a zero-emissions creation from Bentley and a pair of two-door, 2+2 models from both Bugatti and Lamborghini.

The Bugatti has apparently been codenamed Atlantic and like its Italian sibling, will be underpinned by the short-wheelbase version of the Porsche Panamera Turbo S Plug-In Hybrid.

Specifics about the powertrains of the two aren’t confirmed but both should have all-electric ranges of at least 60 miles (96 km) and fast-charging features.

While other details about these two models remain sketchy, they are apparently being launched to help counteract the fuel-guzzling models currently in Bugatti and Lamborghini’s respective families.

    1 car many brands many models… Good job VW, I like the way they preserve the breed of each brand (sarcasm)

      Is your gripe with the general direction of mobility their parent company has chosen or VW itself?

      Cause if the move towards electrification (in performance/luxury companies) is your main concern, hate to say it but the road ahead might not be too pleasing for you.

        clearly mr ceo of VW Group its not; VW Group gets one platform a couple engines and makes several brands models off of it that has nothing to do with electrification

          So sharing platforms is the problem? What’s the point of being in a group in the first place then if not to save on development costs, technologies and manufacturing.

          I’d argue the problem with platform sharing comes down to modular limitations and shared defects – neither of which seem to be the issue here.

    Looking forward to electric supercars made by the likes

    guessing based on its VW Group they all will be the same car with different styling………..
