Bentley’s Mulliner personalization division launched the Balacar Speedster in 2020 — named after Laguna Bacalar in Mexico’s Quintana Roo state — and offered the restricted run of 12 examples virtually instantly at about $2 million per. With simply 4 Bacalars remaining to be delivered to clients, and because the first rule of getting a success is having a follow-up prepared, it is no marvel that Mulliner will introduce its subsequent small-batch, bespoke automotive in 10 days: At 8 p.m. Pacific time on Saturday, August 20, throughout Monterey Automobile Week, the Crewe automaker will unveil the Batur.

We all know a few issues in regards to the Batur. It is not clear what automobile the model relies on, however we’re informed it is going to be a “hand-built grand touring Bentley.” We’ll guess this implies the Flying Spur chassis will get the nod, as a result of the following factor we all know in regards to the Batur is it “showcases themes and kinds that can outline Bentley’s future vary of Battery Electrical Automobiles.” Bentley’s first EV is anticipated to be a high-riding sedan sitting on Volkswagen’s SSP battery-electric platform, the much more luxurious follow-up to the Audi Artemis electrical sedan that can introduce upscale variations of the SSP structure.

The very last thing we all know in regards to the Batur is that it is named after one other physique of water, this time Lake Batur in Kintamani, on the island of Bali in Indonesia.

There appears to be like to be fairly a span between the Batur’s EV-forward design and the primary Bentley EV. A report out of Germany in July stated the VW Group continues to battle with software program for the swarm of battery-electric product the model needs by 2030, pushing launches again probably by years — points that price former VW Group CEO Herbert Diess his job. Audi’s retail model of the Grandsphere idea may not present till 2027 as an alternative of 2024, and the primary Bentley EV that was due in 2025 would possibly face an identical delay.
