The company will be introducing a plug-in hybrid version of its Bentayga next year. The car will be powered by a supercharged 3.0-litre petrol V6 that’s mated to an electric motor. The car puts out 416hp and can also drive in full-electric mode for zero-emissions.
The EV Mode button will be placed right underneath the main engine start/stop button. The car will be similar to the combustion-engined version, barring the addition of a plug port to charge its lithium-ion battery.
Bentley CEO, Wolfgang Dürheimer, confirmed earlier this year, that all of the brand’s models would be gaining PHEV variants. It is also looking at a fully-electric Bentley, which could make production in two years.
