Commenting on the opportunities, Dr Matthias Rabe, Bentley’s member of the board for research and development, said, “Bentley is in the middle of the most significant transformative phase in the company’s long and illustrious history. Extraordinary products has always been at the heart of our business, however tomorrow’s engineers face the most exciting challenges in a generation as we become an exclusively electric car business.
