Bentley ready to step into electric vehicles

British luxury-car maker Bentley will discontinue its 100-year-old roaring 12-cylinder combustion engines to focus on electric vehicles.  Bentley Motors has decided to meet the emission standards that are being tightened around the world.
By 2026, only Bentley hybrid and electric cars will be offered. The UK-based brand said in a statement that it would convert all its models to a fully electric powertrain after four years.
Chief Executive Officer Adrian Hallmark said the company will become a brand new, sustainable, and fully ethical role model for luxury.
Bentley’s rapid conversion to battery-powered vehicles is the result of a $ 40 billion push by its German parent company, Volkswagen AG, which seeks to challenge Tesla Inc.  Bentley will be offering two plug-in hybrid models next year, the Bentega Hybrid and the new Flying Spur Hybrid.
The company had earlier announced that all model lines would offer a hybrid version by 2023, with the company introducing its first fully electric model in 2025.  The brand wants to make its operations carbon-neutral by 2030.
