Bentley unveils world’s first luxury hybrid model ‘Bentayaga’
In Bentley’s first step towards full electrification, the plug-in hybrid model combines an advanced electric motor with a powerful and efficient new-generation V6 petrol engine. The hybrid version will be the company’s most efficient model with CO2 emissions of 75 g/km (NEDC).
Bentley has collaborated with renowned creator, Philippe Starck, to create a unique and intelligent recharging unit concept for Bentayga Hybrid customers – the Bentley by Starck Power Dock.
Starck’s Power Dock concept will encourage customers to plug-in whenever they are at home, thus ensuring each journey begins with the maximum electric-only range. The statement piece is conceived using sustainable and technological materials.
