And while power - all 449 PS of it - remains the same as the previous version, this luxurious, imposing and popular model is now even more refined.
The Bentayga has proved a colossal win for Bentley, with the British firm describing it as the most successful luxury SUV portfolio the segment has ever seen.
The Bentayga Hybrid has also been a smash hit since first launching in 2019, accounting for one in every five of all Bentaygas manufactured.
This updated and uprated plug-in Hybrid is an important car, then, and Bentley now promises a quieter and more cosseting driving experience, as well as a host of new technologies and connected car services, positioning the new product as the ‘most technically advanced Bentayga to date’.
The powertrain is familiar. As with the outgoing Hybrid, an electric motor is paired with a 3.0 litre twin-scroll turbocharged V6 petrol engine delivering 449 PS and 700 Nm of torque.
You get an electric-only range of 25 miles and a combined range of 430 miles.
And Bentley is confident most lease customers will run their PHEV Bentayga using electricity alone.
A spokesperson says:
“Bentley’s research shows over 90 per cent of customers use their first-generation Bentayga Hybrid on a daily basis or several times a week, and nearly 100 per cent of customers use EV mode, with half of them consistently undertaking journeys of less than 30 miles.
“In real world terms, the majority of journeys can be achieved completely in electric only, with zero emissions, delivering more benefits environmentally and building on Bentley’s new reputation for sustainability for the future.”
The Bentayga Hybrid is available with a four or five-seat set-up, and there’s also a huge array of further configuration options,
A spokesperson adds:
“The Bentayga Hybrid offers the ultimate in electric luxury, with smooth and silent progress through urban environments, whilst having the grand touring capability to escape the city and explore further.”
The Bentayga Hybrid is available to order in the UK and Europe now, with deliveries beginning in the coming weeks.
