The Bentley Bentayga Hybrid features an innovative new intelligent satellite navigation system.
When a destination is programmed into the navigation system, the Bentayga Hybrid calculates the best combination of electric drive and V6 engine to maximise efficiency over the journey.
The car automatically engages the correct drive mode for each part of the journey, constantly calculating the best use of battery charge while storing electrical energy for sections of the journey where it is most useful – such as when arriving in the city, where an electric-only range of 31 miles (50 km) in the NEDC cycle can be utilised.
The system will reduce on-board charge to zero just as the vehicle reaches its destination, maximising overall efficiency. A full charge of the battery from a domestic household socket will take 7.5 hours, and customers with an industrial connection installed at home can reduce the charge time to just 2.5 hours.
