Bentley shares plans for a hybrid Continental GT

Bentley shares plans for a hybrid Continental GT

Bentley has revealed that the brand plans for a hybrid Continental GT after the Bentayga gets a hybrid powertrain. 

Sources suggest that as the Bentley Bentayga hybrid may be released in the year 2018, the hybrid Continental GT could make it to showrooms soon after that. Bentley CEO Wolfgang Duerheimer told reporters that the hybrid Continental GT is expected to be powered by a V6 internal combustion engine that’s mated to an electric motor. This has been done to achieve the same power output that the current V8 motor belts out.

Duerheimer sees plug-in hybrid versions of Bentley models as an option for customers who need to use their vehicles within the city limits, due to the tight emission standards in the future. He also added that hybrids can be used for long distances as pure EVs have limited ranges. Duerheimer said that Bentley believes plug-in hybrids show off the best that EVs and ICE cars have to offer.

Wolfgang Duerheimer said, “PHEV sometimes is mentioned as a transitional technology, however, from my point of view, plug-in hybrid technology provides the best of two worlds.”
