The launch of Bentley’s first electric vehicle (EV) may get delayed by as much as four years. According to reports, it is now expected to be launched in 2025.

The Bentley electric car will be based on Volkswagen Group’s Artemis architecture, which is being led by Audi engineers. This EV will begin a series of zero-emission vehicles, which will be launched later in the decade. The company is aspiring to go all-electric by 2030.
