Bentley to build Audi based saloon EV from 2025
Bentley’s first EV, scheduled for launch in 2025, is likely to be assembled and finished at its Crewe headquarters. It’s rumoured it will be built on one of Audi’s existing saloon platforms.
“We started building in Crewe in 1936 and we’ve invested hundreds of millions in infrastructure and certification for electrification, so we have the capability to do it,” said Adrian Hallmark, CEO. “But the important thing to note is that we still have to be competitive, and fight to ensure the maximum possible content for our cars is made in Crewe. We are part of a Group so we must prove we are the best option, but from a brand point of view it is our mission to ensure everything can be built here.”
Google releases its 2020 wrap-up video
And boy is it a good one. It’s difficult not to get a little goosebumpy after watching this incredible short video from Google. According to the mighty search engine, this year the world searched “why” more than ever before. This film features the questions the world asked with words and narration by Kofi Lost.
The search giant also released its list of the most searched-for topics in various categories. While Covid-19 dominated, the contentious US election also took a lot of the search traffic. As the world adapted to new ways of living, searches for ‘How to make a face mask’ and ‘How to make hand sanitiser’ came out on top of the ‘How to…?’ list.
