The Bentley Dream Factory
Transforming Crewe into a ‘Dream Factory’ is key to Bentley’s industry leading Beyond100 strategy, which will see the company reinvent its entire product range to support an electrified future, while achieving carbon neutral status by 2030.
This digital, zero environmental impact, flexible and high-value manufacturing facility will introduce a go-to-zero approach on the environmental impacts of manufacturing and lead the car industry in next generation digital applications.
In 2022, Bentley committed to investing more than £2.5 billion in sustainability over the next ten years which has been a major boost to the UK economy and helps secure Bentley’s first step into electrification.
Consequently, the significant sustainable investment programme will result in a complete transformation of Bentley’s entire product portfolio, and the historic Crewe Campus, by embedding an industry-leading greenfield facility into a world-leading, next generation digital, low environmental impact, high-value advanced manufacturing facility.
The aim for Bentley Motors is to become the benchmark not just for luxury cars or sustainable credentials, but the entire scope of the manufacturer's operations. Securing production of the first Battery-Powered Electric Vehicle (BEV) in Crewe is a milestone moment for Bentley and the UK, as they plan and prepare for a long-term sustainable future in Crewe.
