For most drivers of electric vehicles and module mixtures, that is okay. In any case, it’s not fine for Bentley drivers. That is the reason Bentley collaborated with architect Philippe Starck on creating the Starck Power Dock.

It was also important for me that the unit was as sustainable as possible,” said Philippe Starck, designer of the Starck Power Dock in the press release.
The Starck Power Dock works close by the Bentayga Hybrid – Bentley’s first hybrid car, which joins an electric engine with a petroleum motor. In spite of the fact that making an innovative gadget, the French creator needed the item to show up as a “modern art piece”.
Starck is a standout amongst the most loved makers of his age and is in charge of numerous famous design. From regular items, for example, furniture and lemon squeezers, to progressive superyachts, hotels, and eateries that try to be wondrous, animating and seriously dynamic spots – Starck never stops to push the limits and criteria of the contemporary design.
The designer combined an aluminum domed surface with a narrow rounded display screen made bordered by resin-coated linen.The gadget additionally which works couple with a cell phone application, enabling clients to monitor the car’s energy levels as it is charging.
Bentley hopes this will encourage users to charge their vehicle whenever they are home, ensuring that each car journey begins with the maximum capacity of electricity, in turn, decreasing petrol use.
Both the dock and the vehicle will both be revealed at this year’s Geneva Motor Show, which authoritatively commences on 8 March. They will be available to order in selected markets in late 2018.
