The Bentley EXP 12 Speed 6e Concept Electric Vehicle
The Bentley EXP 12 Speed 6e Concept Electric Vehicle unveiled at the Geneva Motor Show in March 2017 aims to define electric motoring in the luxury sector according to the company’s chairman and CEO, Wolfgang Dürheimer.
The EXP 12 is a fully electric vehicle. The twin bonnet scoops act as highly effective heat sinks that supply additional cooling to the battery and powertrain.
A fusion of cutting-edge technology and beautiful materials is evident right throughout EXP 12 Speed 6e’s luxuriously appointed cabin, ensuring that the brand’s use of technology is not cold or emotionless. The entire central console, for example, is hewn from a solid piece of elegantly curved glass encompassing a high-definition OLED screen. All of the car’s principle onboard controls are accessible from here, including navigation, entertainment, and climate control.
Nice to have includes a ‘6e’ logo that illuminates when the car is running. The car’s intelligent infotainment system is the central brain to access many real world services using connected-car Apps. The passenger, meanwhile, has their own control panel on the front fascia with access to social media, email, and entertainment.
The luxury brand’s electric car strategy includes the introduction of PHEV models across the Bentley model range over the next few years, starting with the Bentayga in 2018.
