Electric Only Range Of 50 Miles 80 Km And Co2 Emissions Under 50 Gkm

Crewe, 16 May 2024 – Bentley is set to unveil the fourth-generation Continental GT this June, marking a significant milestone in the brand’s illustrious history. This latest iteration will be the first to feature Bentley’s revolutionary Ultra Performance Hybrid powertrain, setting new standards in power, dynamics, and sustainability.

The new Continental GT delivers an impressive 782 PS and 1000 Nm of torque, coupled with an electric-only range of 50 miles (80 km) and CO2 emissions of under 50 g/km (WLTP). This combination makes it the most powerful, dynamically capable, and sustainable Bentley road car in the company’s 105-year history, all while maintaining the handcrafted luxury and exceptional materials synonymous with Bentley.

The fourth-generation model boasts cutting-edge chassis technology, including active all-wheel drive with torque vectoring, four-wheel steering, an electronic Limited Slip Differential, 48V electric active anti-roll control, and advanced dual-valve dampers. These innovations, along with a new design and suite of technologies, define the latest generation of a car that epitomizes modern Bentley excellence.

First introduced in 2002, the Continental GT sparked a renaissance for Bentley, leading to a ten-fold increase in sales and redefining the brand for the modern era. Inspired by the 1952 R Type Continental, the fastest four-seat car of its time, the Continental GT adopted key design elements such as the power line, haunch, and sloping roofline, embodying the essence of a luxury Grand Tourer.

The Continental GT’s impact was profound, with annual sales soaring from around 1,000 to over 10,000 within four years. The second-generation model debuted in 2010, featuring a W12 engine, followed by a 4.0-liter V8 option in 2012. The third-generation, launched in 2018, introduced a new platform, engine, suspension, electrical architecture, technology, and interior and exterior designs, setting a new benchmark in the competitive luxury GT sector.

Over the past two decades, the Continental GT has broken speed records and won championships and endurance races globally. It is Bentley’s second most popular model, following the Bentayga, with one in every three Bentleys sold being a Continental GT. Early next year, Bentley will celebrate the production of the 100,000th Continental GT at its Dream Factory in Crewe, England, marking a remarkable milestone for this iconic Grand Tourer.
