There are two exciting varieties of the Bentley Bentayga Hybrid.

Bentley Bentayga Hybrid – Overview

Bentley started electrifying its range relatively late, although it has recently accelerated.

Two new plug-in hybrid Bentayga models outperform the current model in terms of power, and the electric range is the most recent addition.

Here are the major highlights:

  • The opulent Bentley Bentayga Hybrid’s new S and Azure models are sportier and softer, respectively.
  • Bentley aims for a 27-mile electric-only range with the new model, which has a little more power and range than the current hybrid variant.
  • These trims are only available for the Bentayga with a standard wheelbase, not the recently released EWB model.

The 3.0-liter twin-turbo V-6 in the 2018 Bentayga S Hybrid and Bentayga Azure Hybrid is the same as the outgoing model.

Still, the electric motor and their eight-speed torque converter gearboxes have slightly increased, peaking at 134 horsepower and 295 pound-feet of torque.

These boost the preceding synchronous-magnet AC motor’s 126 horsepower and 258 pound-feet by a modest but noticeable amount.

As a result, although the company’s official zero-to-62-mph time of 5.2 seconds and highest speed of 158 mph have not changed, peak output has increased to a claimed 455 hp, up from 443 hp.

Given the limited electric-only range of the original Bentayga Hybrid, a new 18.0-kWh battery pack represents a more significant improvement.

Bentley claims it is aiming for a 27-mile electric-only range, which is noticeably longer than the pitiful 18-mile EV autonomy of the current Hybrid’s 13.0-kWh battery.

However, we do not yet have EPA statistics for this.

The new plug-in models have been modified for various dynamic goals despite having a familiar powerplant.

The Hybrid S is essentially a more environmentally friendly version of the current V-8-powered Bentayga S. Bentley promises to have a more aggressive soundtrack than the regular Hybrid thanks to what it calls “enhancements in the engine bay.”

We’re also promised an exhaust note inside the cabin that can be “tuned to different effects for front and rear passengers,” which suggests using a sound composer.

In addition, the S has damping that is 15% stiffer, stylish 22-inch alloy wheels, and a more forgiving ESC setting when in Sport mode.

In contrast, the Bentayga Azure Hybrid strives to promote tranquillity.

Bentley claims that its Azure models are built with the wellness trend that is currently popular in mind.

In this case, wellness means optimum comfort and minimal disruption rather than expensive candles.

This entails a “health quilting” feature and an even quieter engine note than the already quiet ordinary Bentayga Hybrid.

This is, according to the description, “the feel and visual pleasure of finely constructed diamond-quilted upholstery.” Which sounds very beautiful.

Given how well the motor and Azure trim would undoubtedly fit with the new extended-wheelbase Bentayga, it seems a little strange that these new Hybrid variants will only be offered with the regular-wheelbase Bentayga for the time being.

However, it won’t be long before the expanded body, and plug-in powertrain intersects on a Venn diagram for product planning.

Although it seems odd given how well the motor and Azure trim would probably fit with the new extended-wheelbase Bentayga, both new Hybrid variants will only be available with the regular-wheelbase Bentayga for the time being.

However, the elongated body and plug-in powertrain will soon overlap on a Venn diagram for product planning.

How much does a Bentley Bentayga cost?

Priced at $180,500 with a “moderate” plug-in hybrid engine, the Bentayga was last available as a 2021 model but is anticipated to return in ’23. It has an electric motor and a 3.0L twin-turbo V6 engine, producing 516 pound-feet of torque and 443 horsepower. By 2023, the Hybrid is anticipated to reappear.

Is the Bentley bentayga a 7-seater?

The Bentley Bentayga is now one of the most versatile and configurable luxury SUVs, thanks to its new 7 Seat Specification. With options for 4-, 5-, and 7-passenger configurations, buyers can select the ideal interior design for their particular requirements.
