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.
