Born on the race tracks of Europe nearly 100 years ago, Bentley is one of the world’s poshest and first luxury SUV carmakers. Recently, Bentley has announced its brand new Bentayga Hybrid with electric power and has battery tech that learns from the driving habits.
Tagged as the Bentley Bentayga Hybrid, this is the 4th car in the SUV realm, joining the V8 petrol and diesel and the W12 petrol. The car’s 75g/km of CO2 emissions are much smaller than any of the previous ones. The Bentayga Hybrid delivers the same ultra-luxurious design of the regular Bentayga model but replaces the usual power plant with a 3.0L V6 engine and an electric motor. However, on a full charge, the car can go around 30 miles before the petrol engine needs to assist. So, this car is fine for you if you're a footballer driving to the local nightclub, but not very useful for visiting family. Furthermore, it takes almost 7.5 hours to charge on a normal domestic charger, or as little as 2.5 hours if you have something a bit more potent to plug it into.
When it comes to making it look good, Bentley never fails. The charge station of Bentayga Hybrid is designed by the famed designer, Philippe Starck. It is a statement piece that brings a luxurious touch to hybrid recharging. And the best part is - it’s made of sustainable materials.
Also, the GPS in the car plays a critical role; it calculates the best times to use the electric motor when the car is running in hybrid mode. So, don’t worry about running out of electricity; your car will keep you updated with the battery status.
