Bentley's centennial electric-powered concept car revealed

In order to commemorate its centennial anniversary, Bentley is looking forward to the future with the electric autonomous concept car rather than revisiting the past. The British company launched a prototype electric-powered car called the Bentley EXP 100 GT which is claimed to be a zero-emissions transformative concept car. The one-off concept car was unveiled on July 10, 2019, at Bentley's headquarters in Crewe. The concept car imagines an ultra-posh grand tourer for the year 2035. And it's stunning from every angle.

How's not, the concept of this car is equipped with a ton of luxury on the outside and inside. The carbon fiber and aluminum built low-slung GT resembles a car out of Batman: The Animated Series.

The Bentley EXP 100 GT is a battery-electric vehicle with four motors enabling torque vectoring to make the most of the system's peak torque output of 1,100 lb-ft. These motors allow for a zero-to-sixty mph run of 2.5 seconds, and a top speed of 186 mph (299.34 kph). A horsepower figure hasn't been given yet.

Besides that, there're many unique and sophisticated features that are also installed on this car, such as the headlights are very attractive because of looks as they blend with the front grill design. And the company said that those massive front grill made of 6,000 LED bulbs, separated by a slim piece of copper, gives the front fascia an unmistakable expression.

Actually, the Bentley EXP 100 GT is not Bentley's first all-electric concept car. The automaker has previously launched the Bentley EXP 12 Speed 6e convertible at the 2017 Geneva Motor Show. As reported by Engadget, July 10, 2019, even the interior design combines a spaceship with natural materials including 5,000-year-old copper-infused Riverwood. Bentley stated that all car materials were present to help create a sustainable luxury future. It even has its own 'ethically-aware' fragrance.

One of the attractions of the Bentley EXP 100 GT is its battery's ability to carry the car running up to 435 miles (700.07 km). The car also has a promising fast charging time, which is only 15 minutes for charging from 0 to 80 percent of the battery capacity.
Then there is also the sophistication of the future that is installed on this car is the application of Artificial Intelligence/AI technology, which is named Bentley Personal Assistant which has many tasks like a butler to serve his master in the mansions. Its tasks such as charging vehicles, adjusting seats, and curating the experience of passengers through biometric information, environmental conditions, etc.

Even it offers several different driving modes for passengers such as Enhance, Cocoon, Capture, Re-Live and Customize. In Enhance mode it is intended to resemble open-air driving with a glass roof. Cocoon creates a protective space by blocking other people from seeing inside. While Capture records a trip, and Re-Live plays a trip highlight.

In order to feel the luxury, the Bentley EXP 100 GT is equipped with an autonomous mode. So, when Cocoon is activated, the driver can take a nap without being seen from the outside. Again, this is still a concept. So it's possible there are still design changes or features in the future.
The Bentley EXP 100 GT will probably be able to preview Bentley's first all-electric production model, which has the due date in the year 2025. Bentley also plans to add hybrid powertrain options to each of its models by 2023. The process will begin later this year with the launch of Bentayga Hybrid. It is not yet clear whether Bentley will use the same powertrain in other hybrid models, or something different. *** [EKA | FROM VARIOUS SOURCES | BENTLEY | ENGADGET | CNET | FINANCE-YAHOO | SLASHGEAR | MOTOR1]
