Bentley recently unveiled the 2021 Bentley Bentayga some months ago, we thought it was over, no, it wasn’t. Bentley is taking a step forward on its journey to a sustainable future with the launch of the new Bentayga Hybrid.

Following the recent launches of the new Bentayga V8 and Bentayga Speed, the new Bentayga hybrid becomes the third model in the most successful SUV portfolio the segment has ever seen.
The new Bentayga hybrid offers the ultimate in electric luxury, with smooth and silent progress through urban environments, whilst having the grand touring capability to escape the city and explore further.

The E Motor partnered with a 3.0-liter twin-turbocharged V6 petrol engine, it produces a total power output of 443 bhp and 516 lb.ft of torque.
2021 Bentayga Hybrid’s electrified powertrain consists of 12 main components in the three key areas. First is the distribution of electricity, the charge point is located on the left-hand side of the car, opposite the fuel flap, and is specific to the region of the vehicle.
The state of charge of the battery is showing by an LED visual indicator, and I can be charged at a rate of 7.2 kw/h. 168 individual cells with an expected life of 100,000 miles or eight years make up the 17.3 kWh lithium battery, it can be charged t0 100 percent in just two and a half hour.
The energy stored in the high voltage battery is converted by the power electronics and supplied to the E Motor to supplement the existing 12v vehicle’s electrical infrastructure.
The E Motor is housed within the transmission between the gearbox and internal combustion engine and can deliver full torque instantaneously from stationary, providing silent and rapid vehicle acceleration.
Bentley Hybrid Efficiency Accelerator Pedal provides a pressure point when in EV Drive to denote the boundary between pure electric and Hybrid boundary between pure electric and hybrid power.
You can control the three E Modes – EV Drive, Hybrid Mode, and Hold Mode by the use of a dedicated button. This button will enable the driver to manually manage battery usage during a journey – though this can also be managed automatically by the car.
EV Drive mode is automatically engaged as soon as the car is switched on, and maximizes the electric experience. This is ideal for city driving and shorter journeys.
Hybrid mode maximizes vehicle efficiency and range using data from the intelligent navigation system. This mode is suited for longer journeys and uses predictive E-Mode and engine coasting whilst following directions from the navigation system.
Once you input a destination, the car will automatically engage the correct Drive Mode for each part of the journey, constantly calculating the most efficient use of battery charge and storing electrical energy for sections of the journey where it is most useful. This new technology is awesome.
This is a default mode when in Sport is to provide consistent boost and recuperation. The Hold mode balances the engine and electric power to hold a high voltage battery charge for later use.
It will be delivered with the required market-specific cables that will make it easier for customers to charge the vehicle at home or via industrial charge points. Customers can also choose a Bentley branded wall box available as a no-cost option.
