It was at the same event two years ago that it revealed the EXP 10 Speed 6 concept.

In Bentley world, the EXP 12 Speed 6e concept would need to do grand tourer duties more commonly taken on by a Continental drop-top.

Inside the EXP 12 Speed 6e you'll find features such as the center console being hewn from a solid piece of elegant curved glass, encompassing a high-definition OLED screen - from which users can access all that car's main onboard controls such as navigation, entertainment and climate control. "This concept enables us to engage with luxury customers and gather feedback on our approach", he said. "An electric Bentley would, for example, be able to drive between London and Paris or Milan and Monaco on a single charge and the on board experience will be enhanced for both driver and passenger thanks to the integration of state-of-the-art technology".

The electric Bentley will continue to adopt conventional design details such as a radiator grille and air vents, while the show auto gave us a glimpse of "futuristic Bentley design DNA".

When the vehicle is running the "6e" logo illuminates in a striking, vibrant white. Copper accents are used, including around the gear selector and door veneer panels, to emphasise the electric propulsion systems the EXP12 Speed 6e concept features. According to the automaker, the appearance of the exterior is a natural evolution of Bentley's design DNA, combining muscular proportions and an athletic stance.
