Bentley unveils plug-in hybrid concept

9 April 2014

Luxury automaker Bentley, a member of the Volkswagen Group, unveiled its Bentley Hybrid Concept—a preview of Bentley’s first production plug-in hybrid model, which is planned to be a dedicated version of the all-new SUV available in 2017. The Bentley Hybrid Concept will be on display at the Beijing International Automotive Exhibition later this month.

The plug-in hybrid system will offer a power increase of up to 25% together with a 70% reduction in CO2 emissions, both without any compromise to Bentley’s trademark luxury, design and refinement.

Bentley hybrids will also be capable of an all-electric range of at least 50 km (31 miles).

The Bentley Hybrid Concept is based on the flagship model in the Bentley family, the Mulsanne.

Ha ha. 31 Miles / 50KM of full EV range means <15KWH battery packs, in 2017 luxury SUV segment ? This is just RIDICULOUS. Nobody with accept anything < 40KWH at that time, if not a lot more in that price band, so at least they can do all their daily local commutes with one charge at home at night. Nobody needs any PHEVs with < 25KWH battery in my view. Bet all German PHEVs announced this year with <10KWH will just be the same FLOPS as their previous endless useless Hybrids.
I think neither are serious about PHEVs at this time.
