Bentley Goes PHEV For The Future

Bentley confirmed its new Hybrid Concept will be shown in Beijing April 20 and the technology will be available in 2017 on its hybrid SUV.

The Bentley Hybrid Concept is described by the British luxury brand as a technology showcase that previews Bentley’s first plug-in hybrid model, set to be a dedicated version of the all-new SUV available in 2017.

“There is no doubt that plug-in hybrid technology is true to Bentley’s values of outstanding luxury and effortless performance,” said Dr Wolfgang Schreiber, Chairman and Chief Executive of Bentley Motors. “Combining our renowned engines with electric power reinforces and enhances both principles, and so we will gradually introduce this powertrain across our model range. By the end of the decade, at least 90 percent of our production will be available as a plug-in hybrid. We are proud to be pioneering these developments in the luxury sector.”

Bentley believes through its hybrid system, customers will have a wider choice of modern, powerful and efficient powertrains.

Bentley explained the brand’s plug-in hybrid system will offer a power increase of up to 25 percent as well as a 70 percent reduction in CO2 emissions, both without any compromise to the luxury, design and refinement for which Bentley is renowned.

Bentley added its hybrids will also be capable of driving at least 50 kilometers (31 miles) on electric power alone, allowing for emissions-free city driving with the option of enhanced performance on the open road.

The Bentley Hybrid Concept is based on the flagship model in the Bentley family, the Mulsanne, to show that hybrid technology enhances even the pinnacle of luxury and performance, said Bentley. Copper is used as an exterior and interior styling element to highlight the car’s electrical veins, including copper details to the headlamps, radiator shell bezel, brake calipers, feature line details and badges. Copper accents continue in the cabin, with inserts to the hand-crafted veneers fascias, switch bezels and instruments. Copper cross-stitching to the Mulliner Driving Specification diamond-quilted interior provides the finishing flourish.
