A new 2021 Bentley Bentayga Hybrid joins other facelifts in the luxury model’s lineup.
Bentley has unveiled a revamped version of the Bentayga Hybrid. It is the first of two plug-in hybrids of the brand set to release this year.
There are no changes under the hood, but the vehicle’s appearance has been revised.
The powertrain comprises a 3.0-liter twin-turbo V6 engine plus an electric motor with a total power output of 330 kW (443 hp) and 516 lb-ft (700 Nm) of torque.
A 17.3-kWh battery provides a 24-mile (38.6 km) range by WLTP. It can by fully charged in 2.5 hours at a max charging rate of 7.2 kW.
The top speed is 158 mph (254 km/h), and 84 mph (135 km/h) from the gasoline (petrol) engine only. The acceleration from 0 to 62 mph (100 km/h) takes 5.5 seconds. The EV Drive, Hybrid and Hold drive modes enable to control the battery usage manually on the run.
The company updates the Bentayga Hybrid’s exterior design to fall it in line with the brand’s latest design language.
The front end becomes taller and squarer, the headlights are smaller. The changes at the rear are significant: they include new elliptical lights and tailgate.
Updates inside include new materials, trim options, center console; a new steering wheel with first-ever all-digital instruments behind it; a new 10.9 infotainment screen.
Four and five seat layouts redesigned for additional space are available.
The new Bentley Bentayga Hybrid will initially go on sale in China and the United States, and after in Great Britain and Europe in summer.
