The 2014 Bentley Hybrid Concept is just a prototype model that will most likely be released in the upcoming years as the Bentley Mulsanne Hybrid model. Let’s say something about this luxury car’s features.
2014 Bentley Hybrid Concept Exterior
The 2014 Bentley Hybrid Concept model looks almost identical to the Mulsanne, with addition of the copper trims around the front grille and headlights, as well on the both sides below the doors. If there is no Hybrid badge on the car, you would think that this is the Mulsanne for sure. Anyway, the car does look very luxurious and elegant, and this color suits it perfectly. You can see how the model looks like in the photos posted within this article.
Premium Interior Design
The 2014 Bentley Hybrid Concept features the premium interior, quite similar to the interior of the Bentley Mulsanne. The whole cabin is covered in a high-quality leather with some copper accents. The seats are very comfortable and can be manually adjusted. There is also enough legroom and headroom. Passengers will truly enjoy driving in this luxury vehicle. The concept also features the infotainment system with all the modern technology. There are two LCD screens on the front-seat headrests, as well as tables where you can put your laptop or tablet, a DVD player, premium audio system with Bluetooth headphones, etc.
Hybrid Engine and Fuel Economy
The automaker didn’t give the figures for the 6.75-litre V8 engine that powers the 2014 Bentley Hybrid Concept. Automotive experts predict that it will be a slightly more powerful than the unit that powers the base model. So, it is very likely that the concept’s engine can deliver up to 515 horsepower and 760 lb-ft of torque. It also has an electric motor that will allow it to travel up to 22 miles (50 kilometers) on electric power only. The good thing is that this plug-in hybrid unit improves the fuel economy by 25%, it is rated at 14 mpg in the cities and 23 mpg on the highways. It also reduces the emissions of CO2 gasses by 70%. All the power is transferred to the rear wheels via an 8-speed automatic transmission.
Release Date and Price
The 2014 Bentley Hybrid Concept will for sure enter into the production in the upcoming years, because the automaker is very pleased with this model. Most likely it will be released under the name of Bentley Mulsanne Hybrid. As for the price, it will be higher than the base price of the base model powered by a gasoline engine. It is currently priced at $298,900. The Hybrid variant might cost more than $300,000 when it goes on sale in the upcoming years. The price tag could easily hit the $350,000 mark.
