In a recent interview, Bentley’s chief engineer, Rolf Frech, said an electric car is coming soon.

“I think there will be an answer within the next six months to a year to decide which direction we will go. But of course electric will be a future strategy direction for Bentley.”

Frech also revealed the company's plan to make an electric car based on Porsche’s Mission E concept.

“We not only have the ability to use the [Mission E] platform but we can also use a lot of these modules to bring into our car.”

This move makes sense as other carmakers are gradually entering the electric world.
