luxury combined with supreme power and acceleration. The model
also offers optional seating for seven people and plenty of
high-end options. The super-luxury SUV is also capable off-road

comfort. The Bentyaga hasn’t changed much for the 2018 model
year but Bentley plans to offer the new more fuel-efficient
version, the 2019 Bentley Bentayga plug-in hybrid.

The plug-in hybrid version is expected to adopt the version of
the powertrain used in the Porsche 4 E-Hybrid models. The
styling of the new version won’t differ much from the current
form and the same is with model’s interior. Bentley will also
make some changes to the equipment range but more details will
appear closer to model’s arrival.

The current Bentayga gets the power from the turbocharged
6.0-liter W-12 engine. The power of 600 hp is distributed
through the 8-speed automatic gearbox to all four wheels. The
V-8 diesel is also available in global markets.

As for the 2019 Bentley Bentayga plug-in hybrid, it should
borrow the gas-electric system from VW’s part bin. The system
will be the variation of the system used in the Panamera 4
E-Hybrid. The similar combination will also find the way to the
new gas-electric Cayenne. This combo packs a 2.9-liter
twin-turbo V-6, electric motor and a 14-kWh battery. In the
Panamera, this setup produces 462 horsepower and provides 30
miles of electric range. We will see what numbers will be on
the Bentayga.
