Geneva - Bentley’s new Chairman and CEO, Adrian Hallmark, used his first public appearance at the Geneva Motor Show to unveil the world’s first luxury hybrid model, the Bentayga Hybrid. 

Hybrid and V6 petrol power

In Bentley’s first step towards full electrification, the plug-in hybrid model combines an advanced electric motor with a powerful and efficient new-generation V6 petrol engine. The hybrid version will be the company’s most efficient model with CO2 emissions of 75 g/km according to Bentley. 

Bentley has collaborated with renowned creator, Philippe Starck, to create a unique and intelligent recharging unit concept for Bentayga Hybrid customers – the Power Dock.  

The Power Dock concept will encourage customers to plug-in whenever they are at home, thus ensuring each journey begins with the maximum electric-only range.  The statement piece is conceived using sustainable and technological materials.
