First, Bentayga reshaped the SUV. Now, it is redefining the hybrid. Bentayga Hybrid is Bentley’s first step on a journey towards an electric future, embracing forward-thinking technology to enhance modern living. It delivers all the impressive performance and exquisite craftsmanship you would expect from a Bentley, and adds an exceptionally serene driving experience.
Bentayga Hybrid is designed and engineered at the Bentley factory in Crewe, and the Bentley DNA is immediately visible in its sleek lines, B-shaped wing vents and distinctive headlamp cluster. It is instantly recognisable as a member of the Bentayga family, with the flowing curves and seamless surfaces of its advanced aluminium exterior balancing sportiness with SUV presence. Discreet Hybrid badging on the tailgate and lower door area announce its remarkable capabilities in style, while painted 21” five twin-spoke alloy wheels as standard make an already stunning exterior even more eye-catching.
Bentley has always pushed the boundaries of performance, and now Bentayga Hybrid adds a new measure by which performance can be judged: serenity – a quality in which this groundbreaking SUV excels. Effortless acceleration, even at low speeds, makes driving feel truly sublime, while the exquisite silence of the electric EV Drive mode brings a sense of calm to urban journeys – one that is enhanced by the satisfaction of enjoying the lowest CO2 emissions of the Bentayga range. This may be a hybrid, but it is also very much a Bentley. So you can be sure there are no compromises when it comes to the more traditional measures of performance: power and speed. The class-leading V6 petrol engine contains a twin-scroll turbocharger that enables rapid response and high efficiency, and the engine works seamlessly with the electric motor to provide an impressive 700 Nm of combined torque. This allows Bentayga Hybrid to go from 0 to 60 mph in 5.2 seconds (0 to 100 km/h in 5.5 seconds) and on to a top speed of 158 mph (254 km/h), making this remarkable SUV as exhilarating as it is serene.
Bentayga Hybrid has three modes - Hybrid, Hold and the all-electric EV Drive - covering between them every conceivable customer requirement. In Hybrid mode, intelligent technology ensures the most appropriate energy source is always used, helping to maximise electric driving and minimise emissions and fuel consumption. Intelligent navigation works with the car’s navigation system to preserve battery charge for urban areas. An intelligent accelerator pedal ensures you can feel when you’re about to engage the V6 engine, giving you total control, while intelligent coasting switches off the petrol engine when you take your foot off the accelerator to increase efficiency even further. Intelligent braking seamlessly combines the electric motor with the conventional hydraulic system for light and effortless braking.
With new colours available for Bentayga Hybrid, including the rich red Cricket Ball, you can add your own dash of colour to the world around you. There are seven standard paint colours and five standard hide colours to choose from, or you can take advantage of the full range which extends to around 100 paint colours, including 12 duo-tone options, and 15 hide colours.
