Bentley has announced that its first electric car will be built at Crewe, with the firm committing to an investment of £2.5 billion in both the site and research and development. The additional money comes off the back off the British company recording a second consecutive year of record sales in 2021, despite all the headwinds it has faced from the pandemic and semiconductor shortage.
Fresh off the back of these significant announcements, Bentley CEO Adrian Hallmark will join Autocar Business for a live webinar. Hallmark has been at the helm of the British luxury car manufacturer since 2018, overseeing Bentley's huge changes and challenges in those four years.
Join us for the next installment of Autocar Business Live as we discuss with Adrian Hallmark all the latest news around the luxury firm's Beyond100 electrification strategy, delving into how the firm’s electric plans are shaping up and what the record sales mean for the future of the factory in Crewe.
The free webinar takes place on 1 February at 1500-1600. You can sign up to watch via the specific page on the Autocar Business webinar site.
The webinar will be hosted by Mark Tisshaw and Steve Cropley from Autocar, as we look to discover how Hallmark has helped turn Bentley into one of UK manufacturing’s success stories.
Audience members will also be able to submit questions during the event, which will be addressed during the webinar, time-permitting.
