British luxury carmaker Bentley has revealed the fully electric Gran Tourismo named EXP 100 GT concept which is slated to be launched in 2035. Yes, 2035 which is 16 years from now and the new EXP 100 GT comes with an all-electric powertrain on all four wheels with a combined output of 1,340 HP of power and 1,491 Nm of torque.
The brand claims that the EXP 100 GT can do a top speed of 300 kmph and sprint from 0-100 kmph in less than 2.5 seconds. It is also being speculated that in the future, the more developed and advanced battery system which are likely to be five times denser than what is offered today will be capable of offering a driving range of 700 km on a single charge and the car’s batteries will have the capability to replenish to an 80% state of charge in just 15 minutes. The lightweight and dense, future battery packs will allow the car to tip the scale at 1,900 kgs which is quite respectable for the car of this size. Speaking of which, the Bentley EXP 100 GT measures in at 5,800 mm long, 2,400 mm wide which translates to 19.02 feet to 7.87 feet respectively.
The car will be laden with futuristic technology and to highlight a feature the EXP 100 GT will have an onboard Artificial Intelligence system which can read patterns and pre-empt the passenger’s needs and maximise comfort by controlling the seat surfaces to offer more support during the drive. The AI can also track eye and head movements as well as blood pressure. The interiors can be configured in three settings which depend if autonomous driving mode has been selected.
The concept revealed that the Bentley EXP 100 GT gets a large chrome grille with rounded Matrix LED headlights and laser wire technology that can completely illuminate the grille in a quilted pattern. The rear end is also likely to get laser wire tail lights and the EXP 100 GT will boast an open-air glass roof with illuminated elements.
The Bentley EXP 100 GT has everything you need in the future and now we just need to wait for 16 years to see the car in flesh.
