Next-gen Bentley Mulsanne might go all-electric

Next-gen Bentley Mulsanne might go all-electric

-    Bentley Mulsanne replacement is due in 2020.

-   The flagship saloon from Crewe could be reinvented as a pure electric akin to Aston Martin’s plans of an all-electric Lagonda.

-    No plans of electric Bentayga yet. 

Bentley introduced the current Mulsanne back in 2010. The British marque will continue to build the flagship Luxo-barge till the turn of this decade. However, since the new-generation of the Phantom-rival is due in 2020, the Crewe-based carmaker is yet to decide on how to reinvent the Mulsanne. According to reports, the third-gen Mulsanne might go all electric.

Bentley might make the same decision as Aston Martin’s resurrected Lagonda brand - to develop pure electric flagships. Although there are no plans to make an electric Bentayga at the moment, there is some appeal to a flagship electric saloon. Bentley hasn’t confirmed any details about the future of Mulsanne or as to what electric powertrain it will adopt if the rumours turn out to be true. But its reincarnation is still a couple of years away, so the electric Bentley salon could benefit from next-generation battery technology. 

The Bentley brand falls under the Volkswagen Group umbrella, and the German giant’s electric push will commence next year. There will be an electric vehicle in each segment from the carmaker. And thus the electric Mulsanne would be able to share the EV setup from the Porsche Mission E or the production version of VW I.D. Vizzion. 

Although Bentley already produces the Bentayga plug-in hybrid, the Mulsanne would be their first pure electric vehicle. Ahead of that, we expect the next-gen Flying Spur to enter into its new generation based on the new Continental GT. After the Mulsanne goes electric, we expect the entire Bentley line-up to follow suit.
