Bentley, conquering the French and Bordeaux market with the Bentayga
When we think of the luxury automobile, the reference to the Bentley brand is immediate. In 2021, the Bentayaga of the English manufacturer Bentley will be revamped. Indeed, the SUV, worthy representative of the group’s automobiles will inherit a new design. This new version of the SUV will focus on a particular attention to the functionality and curves of the vehicle. Engine performance will not be different. On the other hand, Bentley will rethink, the lights of the Bentayaga for a more tapered version. The rear optical blocks will be horizontal and the tailgate will be subtly adorned with the logo. On the battery side, the Bentayaga will still offer an electric range of 50 kilometers. Within the driver’s area, the SUV will have a feature at the accelerator pedal.
In electric mode he Hybrid Efficiency Accelerator system intervenes to indicate a pressure point to the driver. The objective is to mark the boundary between electric and hybrid power. This solution put in place aims to favor electric propulsion as much as possible. In addition, the brand is committed to the launch of two new plug-in hybrid models for the new year. As part of its “Beyond 100” plan, it wants to stop the production of internal combustion vehicles by 2026.
Indeed, the English brand created in 1919 by Walter Owen Bentley had the objective of offering high-end automobiles. To become the best in their category performance the key compared to those already existing at the time. Bet won for this visionary. Bentley attracts high-level motorsport athletes, adventurers at heart, or entrepreneurs, as well as people who love to dream or have imagination.
This brand has seduced beyond english borders, and the craze that has endured for 100 years is not about to stop. Bentley positions itself as the company offering the “best cars in the world”. The Bentley brand competes on the starting grids of major motor races. But it does not stop there since it is present at shows dedicated to the luxury automobile. In a hundred years, the brand has evolved. It continues to offer services that were already dreamy at the time. However, today it is identifying current issues to stay in tune with the times.
The Bentayga Hybrid, the world’s first luxury hybrid vehicle
If 100 years ago Walter OWEN already created the best cars in the world, the tradition still lives on. The ambition of the brand is to offer new successful models. They must combine both the aesthetics of Bentley’s DNA, but also the performance and functions sought by motorists.
The 2019 Geneva Motor Show (Switzerland) also marks bentley’s centenary. On occasion, visitors and enthusiasts of high-end cars from all over the world discovered the Bentayga Hybrid. This vehicle is Bentley’s latest. This is a new SUV that combines luxury, performance and responsible driving. Indeed, as its name suggests, the Bentayga Hybrid offers the hybrid driving mode. The English brand had first upset the codes of the SUV by reinventing the design of its new vehicle. At the same time, it achieved a new masterstroke by offering the very first luxury hybrid model in the world. The lines have been carefully worked, in order to offer its driver a unique experience combining serenity and comfort. The interior of the cabin offers a comfortable seat for optimal driving. The comfort dimension is coupled with the insulation of the cabin and the silence of the electric.
On the outside, the “Hybrid” badges on the sides of the vehicle and at the rear clearly indicate the positioning while retaining Bentley’s own codes. Its V6 petrol engine has been carefully studied. The goal is to achieve as few emissions as possible. For Bentley, this is again mission accomplished. Indeed for about 25 km, you will be guaranteed not to cause any CO2 emissions. In general, the Bentayga Hybrid is one of the hybrid models on the market with one of the lowest CO2 emission rates to date.
A gesture for the environment coupled with Bentley quality
While the Bentayga Hybrid is a great promise in terms of driving condition and fuel consumption, it’s still a Bentley. Bentley is above all the power of an engine and a ratio of time to speed more than interesting. The brand does not neglect this point. Indeed, it propels the Bentayga Hybrid from 0 to 100 km/h in just 5.2 seconds. The power of the engine allows it to reach a top speed of 254 km/h. But for Bentley, driving comfort is at the heart of the concerns. Therefore, it is possible to use three different driving modes. These driving modes meet the needs of all drivers: the Hybrid mode makes it possible to always select the best energy source to use according to traffic conditions, for optimal performance.
This allows the electricity to be conserved without causing as much emissions as a “classic” model. The second mode, Hold, retains the vehicle’s electrical energy. Finally, the EV mode allows electric use exclusively, the power of the 348V high voltage dual voltage battery producing 13 kWh of usable energy for a silent ride. Thanks to the charging stations at home, the car charges during the night, or thanks to the fast-charging stations in 2h30 only.
Bentley is also a brand that emphasizes the technological performance of its latest models, for a fully connected comfort management: the interior temperature, the monitoring of the state of the vehicle load, or the monitoring of consumption are fully accessible from a smartphone. In short, the Bentayga Hybrid leaves nothing to chance, it sets the tone and marks Bentley’s entry into the hybrid era.
Between environmental awareness and the benefits of hybrid models, consumers are determined to turn to hybrid driving. So for all luxury car enthusiasts who want an extraordinary experience, the Bentayga Hybrid is the solution. For more information, please contact your Bentley Dealer.
