As the first luxury brand to create a hybrid for production, Bentley Motors Limited with its plug-in hybrid powertrain, Bentayga Hybrid is leading the way. It is fundamentally different from their other models – yet nevertheless, continues to offer the luxury and performance for which the British manufacturer is renowned. The designers and engineers at the Bentley factory have created a uniquely serene experience for driver and passengers alike. One that represents a window into the future of the luxury car.
The torque of the electric motor, available from a standing start, combines perfectly with the all-new V6 motor to deliver an effortless driving experience. On starting, the hybrid SUV automatically runs in EV Drive, designed specifically for urban driving. With a combined NEDC CO2 emissions of 75 g/km, it makes for a near-silent, yet powerful, driving experience. The craftsmanship and care that went into Bentayga Hybrid’s creation delivers a serene and luxurious drive that needs to be experienced to be truly appreciated.
With its sleek lines, distinctive headlamp cluster and the familiar matrix grille, Bentayga Hybrid is instantly recognisable as a Bentley. Just like its siblings in the Bentayga range, it is built by hand at the Bentley factory in Crewe, using the same combination of traditional craft techniques and cutting-edge manufacturing technology, including superformed aluminium body panels for the bodyshell.
With its interior handcrafted, including wooden veneers that have been carefully selected, cut and matched, every detail has been intricately designed for exceptional comfort. The upper cabin is trimmed in Eliade, a tactile and technical fabric which contrasts with the rest of the leather-trimmed cabin.
With elegant fluted seats and tactile driver controls with a diamond-knurling finish, the timeless sophistication of the British Manufacturer runs through every inch of the car. From monogrammed upholstery to the design of truly bespoke features, there are a wide range of personalisation options available from both Bentley and Mulliner.
Connected car technology lies at the heart of Bentayga Hybrid, and is built around a suite of safe, smart, and convenient online functionalities that connect the driver seamlessly to the internet. This enhances the experience of both the driver and their passengers.
Intelligent Navigation forms a part of this smart technology, a service that automatically selects the most efficient driving mode on any journey. For example, whether you’re traveling long distance, or through the urban sprawl, it ensures the car has enough battery left to get you through the last leg.
Apart from that, Bentley has also collaborated with renowned creator, Philippe Starck, to create the Bentley x Starck Power Dock, an elegant recharging unit concept for the electrically powered vehicle.
Designed to store the charging cable neatly and safely, it enables you to plug-in and recharge Bentayga Hybrid at home; ensuring every journey begins with a full charge and the greatest possible electric-only range.
With its clean lines and beautiful attention to detail, the Bentley x Starck Power Dock is made using sustainable materials, while its domed face is designed using hot-pressure aluminium casting. – Source: Bentley Motors
