Plug-In Bentley Bentayga Hybrid Is Updated

The shift towards a fully-electrified lineup starts with the updated 2021 Bentley Bentayga Hybrid


  • Both the “regular” Bentayga and Bentayga Speed have already been updated.

  • The Bentayga Hybrid is one of two electrified models to launch in 2021.

  • Bentley is planning to drop the internal combustion engine by 2030.


As more countries and territories add their names to the list of areas that plan to ban the old internal combustion engine, manufacturers are fast-forwarding their electrified lineups. Volkswagen’s Bentley is on the ball with the updated 2021 Bentayga plug-in hybrid, one of two models of the type that will be introduced this year.

Perhaps the smartest move on Bentley’s part is that the 2021 Bentayga Hybrid will be priced on par with the ‘base” V8 version at $183,225 including shipping, in the US. According to Automotive News (subscription required), the Hybrid will become the best-selling version of the hot-moving hyper-luxury SUV.

The facelifted and upgraded plug-in SUV will be powered by a twin-turbocharged 3.0-litre V-6 engine combined with an electric motor for a total system output of 443 horsepower and 516 lb.-ft. of torque. The hybrid system is itself powered by a 17.3-kilowatt-hour lithium battery that will provide an electric-only range of 31 miles based on the NEDC test cycle.

By 2026, every new Bentley vehicle will be electrified in one way or another. In the meantime, the new 2021 Bentayga Hybrid arrives in the US this April.
