Bentley Bentayga getting plug-in hybrid version this year
First was the petrol variant, then the diesel and now the electrified flavor is coming
Bentley is looking to tick all the boxes powertrain-wise with the Bentayga SUV as recent information suggests it is getting a plug-in hybrid iteration.
These rumours aren’t exactly new after last November Autocar reported the Bentayga PHEV would rely on a 2.9-liter V6 engine paired with an electric motor.
Given Bentley’s positioning under the VW Group umbrella, many suggest the plug-in hybrid setup will likely be donated by the Porsche Panamera E-Hybrid, which makes 462 PS (340 kW) and can sprint from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 4.6 seconds.
One year ago, Bentley CEO Wolfgang Dürheimer confirmed that the carmaker will offer plug-in hybrid throughout its range – in other words, every model Bentley makes will get a PHEV variant.
