Bentley unveils world’s first luxury hybrid at the 2018 Geneva Motor Show


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.


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 (NEDC).

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

Starck’s 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.
