Luxury automaker Bentley is joining the hybrid club with a brand new powertrain, a plug-in hybrid concept based on its Mulsanne.
“There is no doubt that plug-in hybrid technology is true to Bentley’s values of outstanding luxury and effortless performance. Combining our renowned engines with electric power reinforces and enhances both principles, and so we will gradually introduce this powertrain across our model range. By the end of the decade, at least 90% of our production will be available as a plug-in hybrid. We are proud to be pioneering these developments in the luxury sector.” – comented Dr Wolfgang Schreiber, Chairman and Chief Executive of Bentley Motors.
The Crewe automaker promises its plug-in powertrain will offer a 25 percent boost in output with a 70 percent reduction in C02 emissions. The debut of this engine concept will be at the Beijing International Automotive Exhibition on Sunday 20th April, and will enter the market in 2017 .
