Bentley Boss Says Every Model Will Have A Hybrid Version
|   Tuesday, January 14, 2014
Bentley will hybridize the entire portfolio of the brand, the SUV being the first model to benefit from a hybrid powertrain. The future SUV from Bentley will have a plug-in hybrid version, says Dr. Wolfgang Schreiber, CEO of Bentley, in an interview for Auto Express.

The rationale behind choosing the SUV for a new drivetrain comes from behind the platform, which is a new one, with new technologies, and an SUV will provide sufficient space for the batteries required for the hybrid drive system.
The elements that make up the propulsion system could be taken from the current Porsche Panamera Hybrid.

The launch of the Bentley SUV will take place in 2015, with the hybrid version being available one year later. The development of the series model is fairly advanced. Its design is completely different from the one presented in the EXP 9F concept. Moreover, this concept was not well received by the target customers nor by the public at the Geneva Motor Show in 2013. However, the new version has received more than 2,000 pre-orders, say Bentley representatives, without any of the 2,000 customers knowing the look and cost of the production model.

Bentley representatives say that the SUV will be a second car for 90 percent of current customers. Also, the brand will gain new customers thanks to this model. The new clients will come from other brands. These customers will be attracted by the new niche that will be created by Bentley's SUV, the luxury SUV. In contrast to other luxury products, the model will not make any concession on utility. That will be the first Bentley available with a tow hook.
