EXP 12 Speed 6e concept sings the Bentley electric
Bentley's got a lovely little concept on its hands.
The EXP 12 Speed 6e builds on the momentum of its EXP 10 Speed 6 concept from two years ago.
This one ditches the hard roof and replaces its gas engine with electric motors.
Thankfully, the alterations preserved the exterior's gorgeous looks.
The goal of the concept was to provide the grand touring experience -- long trips in a big, comfortable car.
The car can be charged wirelessly, but a port hidden behind the license plate will get owners some juice in a pinch.
The interior is an exercise in making things look as fancy as possible.
Its steering wheel is very... conceptual.
That burgundy leather looks like a couch in an expensive lawyer's office.
Then again, this car probably appeals to lawyers who charge a lot of scratch, so it makes sense.
Let's hope some of this makes its way to the next generation of Bentley's Continental.
