Since Bentley’s earliest days, the company has existed to create extraordinary cars for extraordinary customers. Vehicles that enable the world’s most discerning drivers to live truly incredible lives.

Today, the world is changing fast – and the expectations of those drivers are changing, too.

Rather than thinking only about the car itself, they look more carefully at the experience it can offer. Lifestyle matters more now than ever. In a busy world, people value quality time.

For Bentley, this has meant looking at the electric car in a new light and focusing on exactly what electric motor efficiency can deliver for the luxury world: effortless power and lightning-fast acceleration, coupled with the serenity of near-silent travel. This will be an era of uncompromising performance and unprecedented automotive luxury. One inspired by the same aims that have always driven the team at Bentley.


Bentley is not the first luxury car maker to talk about electric motor efficiency. Many have outlined their visions for the future; some even built concept cars. Yet only Bentley has announced the launch of a production vehicle for the luxury sector: Bentayga Hybrid.

Designed for serene urban driving as well as exhilarating cruising on the open road, it is a truly progressive Bentley. As many of the world’s major cities outline plans to restrict access for cars without electric drivetrains, Bentayga Hybrid represents the start of a journey that gathers pace by the day.

Technology – and its potential to improve our lives – lies at the heart of Bentayga Hybrid.

It is built around a suite of Connected Car services, with intelligent navigation services. For example, that automatically select the most efficient driving mode throughout your journey. Just input your destination into Bentayga Hybrid’s satellite navigation and the car will automatically engage the right mode. So if you’re going to drive through a town or city towards the end of your journey, it will ensure enough battery is left for you to drive on electric power only for that leg.

A choice of two wall-mounted recharging units is available. A Bentley-branded wall box makes recharging at home easy, while the striking Starck Power Hub, designed by globally renowned creator Philippe Starck, offers a sleek, futuristic alternative.


Starting up automatically in EV Drive, Bentayga Hybrid’s emissions are precisely zero at low speeds. While the near-silent in-cabin environment takes urban driving to new heights of luxury. On the open road, however, it remains every inch a Bentley.
Its Plug-in Hybrid fusion of a 3.0 litre V6 petrol engine and electric motor is incredibly powerful, producing low CO2 emissions of just 75g/km (NEDC). While its battery can be recharged in 2.5 hours, delivering an impressive electric only range of over 50km (NEDC).

On the outside, Bentayga Hybrid is enhanced by the addition of subtle new copper badging, a nod to the technology within. And inside, the craftsmanship you expect from Bentley is on display wherever you look. The upper cabin is trimmed in Eliade – a new technical fabric that contrasts with the hand-stitched leather adorning the rest of the interior – all encircled by a ring of handcrafted wooden veneer.
