Bentley has taken the wraps off what’s claimed to be the world’s first luxury hybrid car, the Bentayga Hybrid.
In Bentley’s first step towards full electrification, the plug-in hybrid model combines an advanced electric motor with a powerful and efficient V6 petrol engine.
The Bentayga Hybrid will be the company’s most efficient model with CO2 emissions of 75g/km.
With an electric-only range of more than 31 miles, a full charge of the battery from a domestic household socket will take 7.5 hours.
However, customers with an industrial connection installed at home can reduce the charge time to just 2.5 hours.
Bentley says the hybrid “feels and rides like a true Bentley, providing the refinement, effortless performance and exquisitely tranquil cabin environment” for which the luxury British brand is famed.
