Bentley Demonstrates an Electric Car with a Sofa in the Trunk

Automotive designer Joseph Robinson has presented his vision for the future of Bentley’s electric vehicles.

The introduction of electric powertrains still inspires automotive designers. They start going beyond the usual forms and demonstrate cars with unusual designs, thereby hinting at the appearance of new car classes in the near future.

Famous car designer Joseph Robinson has reconsidered Bentley’s electric cars, which, in his opinion, “a little stuck in the past.” This electric car presented on the rendering is named Centanne. It is based on a unique platform with built-in electric motors and a powerful battery that allows combining different body types: a coupe, an SUV and a shooting brake.

The most interesting version is an electric car in the shooting brake body with a non-standard rear end and a completely glass roof. The Centanne’s original rear end features a multi-way tailgate that opens access to a fairly large compartment equipped with a cozy C-shaped sofa. According to the designer's idea, it can be used for outdoor recreation or as a romantic place where you can sit and gaze the stars.

However, the designer's fantasy does not end on the non-standard rear end. The innovative prototype has a fake radiator grille with a complex pattern and a huge number «8», LED headlights and taillights, elongated side doors and huge wheels.

Whether Bentley will use such bold decisions in its future electric car is currently unknown. Most likely, we will get an answer only during the presentation of the brand’s first electric car, which is planned for 2025.
