To mark the Detroit show, Wolfgang Dürheimer discussed the mechanics future within the range Bentley .
In the short term it is now written that each model in the catalog will also be offered in a greener version, a rechargeable hybrid mechanics.
What could be seen as a transition before complete electrification? Not according to Wolfgang Dürheimer for which this technical solution is called to be not temporary but register in time.
The Bentayga SUV will be the first to benefit from this rechargeable hybrid offering with a launch in the course of next year.
Next will be the new generation of the Continental GT whose combination between V6 and electric motor is advanced for a power close to 500 ch.
Undoubtedly this version (after the W12 and before the V8) should be closer to the Porsche Panamera 4 E-Hybrid which today marries V6 2.9 l Biturbo and electric block for a cavalry of 462 hp.
In order to significantly reduce its average CO2 emissions at Bentley, it was therefore decided to exploit the hybrid rechargeable technology between Bentayga, Continental GT, Flying Spur and Mulsanne.
