Founded in 1950, Good Design remains the oldest and most prestigious programme for design excellence in the world.

A panel of experts, comprising of leading designers, architects and journalists met in New York and San Francisco in late 2017 to review submissions from thousands of the world’s leading manufacturers and industrial and graphic design firms, choosing the best entries in each category for their outstanding design.

“EXP12 Speed 6e is a triumph for the luxury experience of high style, design, aesthetic and originality. It brings the luxury electric car to a new level,” said Chicago Athenaeum Museum President, Christian Narkiewicz-Laine.

“Bentley is defining the luxury electric vehicle segment. In a Bentley, the electric future will be as luxurious, effortless, exclusive and emotional as it has always been for our customers. We will take electric motoring into new areas of luxury, comfort and refinement – as only we can,” says Bentley’s design director, Stefan Sielaff. 

The EXP 12 Speed 6e was unveiled at the 2017 Geneva Motor Show and is a concept to demonstrate that Bentley is defining electric motoring in the luxury sector.
