As global auto shows are halfway through their annual calendar, more and more manufacturers are showcasing their latest and greatest. Technology is always at the forefront of any development and even conservative companies like Bentley sometimes amaze by their announcements. The company (Bentley) today made an official announcement to debut its first Hybrid Concept at the Beijing Motor Show on 20th April.

"There is no doubt that plug-in hybrid technology is true to Bentley’s values of outstanding luxury and effortless performance. Combining our renowned engines with electric power reinforces and enhances both principles, and so we will gradually introduce this powertrain across our model range. By the end of the decade, at least 90% of our production will be available as a plug-in hybrid. We are proud to be pioneering these developments in the luxury sector"- said, Dr Wolfgang Schreiber, Chairman and Chief Executive of Bentley Motors.

The new plug-in hybrid powertrain will be showcased on a concept model based on company's flagship model, the Mulsanne, at the auto show. The first of the production models slated to get this technology will be the recently announced Bentley SUV in 2017.

The new plug-in hybrid system will aid the Bentley to increase the power output of its future models by 25 per cent while taking the Co2 emission considerably down by upto 70 per cent. The new powertrain will also be potent enough to keep the car running for at least 50 kilometers only on electric power. The rest of the technical details are enveloped in secrecy as of now though, but stay tuned to AutoPortal for complete details of Bentley's new powertrain!
