Bentley has announced that its Bentayga Hybrid, a luxury SUV plug-in hybrid, is now on sale in Europe.
The Bentayga Hybrid is the first step on Bentley’s journey into electric vehicles, which will see the marque roll out an electrified version of every nameplate by 2023. The Bentayga Hybrid combines a new, highly efficient 3.0-litre turbocharged V6 petrol engine – which incorporates the latest technologies to optimise both efficiency and performance – with a state-of-the-art electric motor delivering an instantaneous response.
Among the cutting-edge driver systems are several Intelligent Satellite Navigation features specific to the Bentayga Hybrid. Upon entering a journey into the system, the optimum combination of electric motor and engine will automatically be calculated and used for most effective use of hybrid power. According to the current position of the car, the system will also clearly illustrate on-screen the maximum remaining range in EV mode.
