Bentley has unveiled its first plug-in hybrid electric car at the Beijing International Automotive Show. The Bentley Hybrid Concept is based on the luxury carmaker’s flagship model, the Mulsanne.
Bentley claims its plug-in hybrid system provides 30 miles (50km) of all-electric driving range, while increasing power by up to 25% and cutting emissions by 70%. The firm plans to launch a plug-in hybrid SUV in 2017 and says by the end of the decade, at least 90% of its cars will be available as plug-in hybrid electric vehicles (EV).
