Bentley has commenced delivery of the Bentayga Hybrid SUV, marking a significant milestone for the company as it eases into the electric powertrain sector. It plans to offer electric or hybrid version of all its models by 2025.
Bentley’s first plug-in hybrid model combines a powerful new, 3.0-litre turbocharged V6 petrol engine with an advanced electric motor that delivers an instantaneous response.
The Bentayga Hybrid utilises future-focussed technology to provide a unique, serenely quiet and luxurious driving experience. It is also the only plug-in hybrid vehicle in the world with 64 standard colours and unlimited bespoke options.
Peter Bosch, Bentley’s member of the board for manufacturing, said, ‘The delivery of the first Bentayga Hybrid models is an historic moment for Bentley, taking us a step closer to the roll-out of truly sustainable luxury mobility solutions. As we prepare for the next 100 years, we are investing significantly in new initiatives that reinforce our commitment to sustainability, as demonstrated by the visionary all-electric Bentley EXP 100 GT concept.’
