According tomedia reports, Bentley believes in octopuses. The British luxury car brand on Wednesday announced the Octopus project, which aims to make a breakthrough in the field of electric engines for electric cars in the future. Engineers have discovered a breakthrough in high-performance electric vehicle engine technology in the past 18 months, and now the Octopus project hopes to bear fruit within the next three years, according to the company.
According to the statement, the project has a lot to do with electric motors that do not contain any rare earth materials. If all goes according to plan, the engine should be integrated directly into the electric vehicle platform of the future. In addition to using sustainable materials, Bentley said the potential electric engine does not require any copper, and the entire unit will be fully recyclable when the car is discontinued.
Even better, if the results are as Bentley wishes, the company hopes to use it on its first planned Bentley electric car by 2026.
Bentley plans to work with nine other uk organisations on the project. If successful, it sounds like the company will have a blueprint for the electric system of the future.
