Bentley will provide the first fully-electric car, announced the company on Wednesday. It is expected to start in 2025.

This is a significant milestone in the Volkswagen AG (VOWG_p.DE) unit’s planned shift to a fully-electric model line-up by 2030, according to Reuters.

The carmaker will also invest 2.5 billion pounds ($3.4 billion) in sustainability over the next decade.

Bentley said it would reconfigure its UK plant in Crewe. That will be necessary to build the new vehicle.

Global sales jumped 31% amid strong demand for high-end vehicles which means that Bentley had cruised to a record year in 2021.

The company did not provide further details on what form its first fully-electric vehicle will take.
