Bentley’s EXP 12 Speed 6e Concept Wins Good Design Award
The Bentley EXP 12 Speed 6e Concept, unveiled last year at the Geneva Motor Show, has earned the annual Good Design award from the Chicago Athenaeum Museum of Architecture and Design and The European Centre for Architecture Art Design and Urban Studies.
Good Design is a program that was founded in 1950 and that has since become one of the most respected awards in the automotive industry. Every year, it receives submissions from top industrial, manufacturing, and graphic design firms, which are then judged by experts for the award. The EXP 12 Speed 6e was selected from thousands of entries worldwide.
The panel of judges is made up of leading journalists, designers, and architects, who met in New York and San Francisco near the tail end of 2017 to select the best designs in the world. “EXP 12 Speed 6e is a triumph for the luxury experience of high style, design, aesthetic and originality,” said Christian Narkiewicz-Laine, president of the Chicago Athenaeum Museum. “It brings the luxury electric car to a new level.”
The Bentley concept, an electric two-door convertible, was created to show that the brand was ready to redefine electric motoring in the luxury sector. “Bentley is defining the luxury electric vehicle segment,” said Stefan Sielaff, Bentley’s design director. “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.”
