Bentley Mulsanne: what about the model prepared by the luxury brand


The carmaker has announced that it will launch five new electric vehicles between 2025 and 2030.

Bentley’s flagship model was the Mulsanne sedan, manufactured between 2010 and 2020 and powered by a 6.75-liter twin-turbo V8 (the longest V8 engine to date, introduced in 1959). The vehicle that will replace it will be fully electric, according to a new report, and its focus will move away from the ultimate comfort to sporty driving.

The car, which will probably no longer be called Mulsanne, will be the first to arrive from a series of five new Bentley electric vehicles coming between 2025 and 2030.

The only real connection between Mulsanne and the new EV will be their price. However, it appears that Bentley plans to launch an even more expensive model sometime later, which will return to the classic large sedan shape, according to Bentley CEO Adrian Hallmark, who said that “we have given up the Mulsanne segment. and that is something, if we look at the market, which is still attractive to us. It is part of our historical strength to work in that segment. “

According to Variety, HBO is accused of providing Facebook with customer lists, allowing the social network to correlate viewing habits with their profiles. He also claims that HBO knows that Facebook can combine data because HBO is a major advertiser on Facebook, and Facebook can then use that information to redirect ads to its subscribers. Because HBO never received proper customer consent to do so, it is alleged that it violated the 1988 Video Privacy Protection Act (VPPA), according to the lawsuit. HBO, like other sites, discloses to users that it (and its partners) use cookies to deliver personalized ads. However, VPPA requires separate consent from users to share their video viewing history. "A standard privacy policy will not be enough," he said. Other streaming providers have been hit by similar situations, and TikTok recently agreed to pay $ 92 million for a (partial) violation of the VPPA. In another case, however, a judge ruled in 2015 that Hulu did not knowingly share Facebook data, which could determine a person's viewing history. The law firm involved in the HBO lawsuit previously won a $ 50 million deal with Hearst after alleging that it violated Michigan's privacy laws by selling subscriber data.

The future luxury model

Hallmark also talked about the limitations that the manufacturer encountered when it had to redesign the VW Group’s platforms to meet its needs. Looks like this is going to be less of a problem now. The CEO pointed out that “before, our platforms were developed from group architectures that were developed long before we arrived at the party. Efforts to change systems and supplier requirements have been a major constraint on Bentley in the past. ”

“With this generation of cars, we have been involved from the beginning to ensure the specifications that Bentley needs. I can’t stress enough how much of a discovery it is. It’s a game changer. Now we can build a car as big as the one we have now. If I look forward to the end of 2020, it is another step towards change. “

In other words, the position in the Bentley range previously occupied by Mulsanne will be occupied by an electric coupe that will not remain the emblematic model for long. Bentley seems to want to start offering much more expensive vehicles.

Interesting, if we look back at some older official statements from Bentley, such as their reasons for discontinuing the Mulsanne model in the first place. The carmaker claimed that one of the main reasons why it stopped production of its largest sedan was the growing popularity of SUVs.
