According to Kraft, the electric vehicles are part of the future of the company, and although they account for not so many sales, their popularity is growing, and more and more customers interested in Bentley cars.
In addition, Kraft notes that electric propulsion is ideal for such luxury brands as Bentley due to its high torque and quiet operation.
