A fuel-efficient Bentley. Those aren’t exactly the words you expect to fuse together when talking about an upmarket performance brand with decades of heritage such as Bentley.
Bentley is about luxury and, to a large extent nowadays, exuberance. But it has always managed to finely balance raw performance with sedateness – each coming to the fore when called upon.
Including a plug-in hybrid powertrain, then, makes sense for a Bentley. While it may not have the sheer grunt of petrol-only models, the Bentayga PHEV benefits from the silent and smooth driving that only battery electric systems can provide at low speeds.
Performance is still incredible considering the size and weight of the car, achieving 0-62mph in 5.5 seconds. However, it’s the refined silence offered at lower speeds that really makes the Bentayga hybrid shine.
Charging at home
You can find full details of how long it takes to charge this vehicle from empty to full using a 7.4kW home charge point at the bottom of this page.
However, it's important to note that most electric car charging is done overnight when you're asleep (so you wake up to a charged vehicle) and it's very unlikely you will ever need to charge the battery from completely empty to completely full. So, in reality, most drivers will only need to "top up" their car's battery overnight - for example, from 50% to 80%.
We tested how often the average driver would need to charge each week using the Jaguar GO I-PACE app. See how we got on in this video.
