The Bentley Bentayga Hybrid, the firm's first electrified production vehicle, is now on sale in the UK, priced from £133,100.
First revealed at the Geneva motor show in March 2018, order books for the plug-in hybrid SUV were due to open later that year. However, the launch was significantly delayed in the European market as a result of WLTP emissions certification.
Customer deliveries of the Bentayga Hybrid are now set to get underway before the end of this year.
The luxury plug-in hybrid is capable of up to 24.2 miles of electric-only range on the WLTP combined cycle. It couples a 126bhp, 295lb ft electric motor with a turbocharged 3.0-litre V6 petrol engine for a 0-62mph time of 5.5sec and top speed of 158mph. Total power output is unconfirmed, but it can be expected to match the 455bhp of the powertrain-sharing Porsche Cayenne E-Hybrid, while torque is rated at 516lb ft.
Unique to the Bentayga Hybrid is a range of sat-nav features that automatically calculate the "optimum combination of electric motor and engine" according to the planned journey. Three driving modes - EV, Hybrid and Hold - offer varying balances of electric and engine power, with regenerative braking working to recover energy at all times.
