Bentley to go electric
Luxury car maker Bentley has pledged to go carbon-neutral and stop making fossil fuel cars by 2030.
The company, which promises to be an “end-to-end carbon neutral organisation”, will commit its plant in Crewe to producing exclusively electric cars, making it the only major car factory in the UK, besides Jaguar’s Castle Bromwich site, to do so.
Adrian Hallmark, Bentley’s chief executive, told the Guardian this was “a paradigm shift throughout our business.”
ECA and various other industry bodies and companies have previously called for a ban on the sale of ICE vehicles by 2030.
