    With the goal of increasing the number of solar panels in Crewe from 30,000 to 40,000 in the next two years, an expansion of on-site energy production will be one of the latest initiatives.

Bentley’s partners are also encouraged to support its objective of being carbon neutral by 2030, and suppliers are encouraged to meet basic sustainability standards. Bentley’s global retailer network will follow suit, with each striving to achieve carbon neutrality by 2025.

    The Dream Factory takes a go-to-zero approach to environmental impacts of production. Bentley targets to minimize water usage and other environmental impacts for every vehicle made in Crewe until 2030.

    The upcoming Flying Spur PHEV, as well as five additional derivatives, will further strengthen Bentley’s position in the luxury hybrid car segment. Bentley’s hybrid vehicles are expected to account for more than 20% of total sales this year.
