Bentley hopes with the addition of a hybrid vehicle to their lineup, customers will have a wider choice of modern, powerful and efficient powertrains. Power in the vehicle will be increased up to 25% and co2 emissions will be reduced by up to 70%. Bentley ensures this will all be done with no compromise to the luxury and timeless design that the brand is so well-known for. The Hybrid Concept is based on the flagship model in the Bentley family, the Mulsanne.

“There is no doubt that plug-in hybrid technology is true to Bentley’s values of outstanding luxury and effortless performance. 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% of our production will be available as a plug-in hybrid. We are proud to be pioneering these developments in the luxury sector” states Chairman and Chief Executive of Bentley Motors, Dr Wolfgang Schreiber.
