The new Bentley Bentayga will become even friendlier to the environment thanks to the addition of the e-turbo tech.
Bentley has managed to put together the world’s first truly luxury SUV and also the most powerful and fastest one up to date, but if you though that development of the impressive ride has come to a stop, you will be surprised to find out that a lead engineer at the Crewe-based carmaker has announced that the diesel engine, which will be offered on the Bentayga soon, will be getting the electric-driven turbocharger which will be debuting on the high-performance version of the new Audi Q7.
The vehicle will be called the Audi SQ7 and it should come out sometimes in 2016, using a 4.0 liter V8 TDI diesel burner, equipped with the e-turbo, producing 435 HP (320 kW) and approximately 1,000 Nm (739 lb-ft) of torque, but chances are we might be seeing some output differences between the Ingolstadt-based model and the Bentley Bentayga. In the meantime, we will remind you that the powerful and luxurious SUV is making use of a 6.0 liter W12 TSI petrol engine, producing 608 HP (447 kW) and 900 Nm (663 lb-ft) of torque, capable of reaching 100 km/h (62 mph) from a standstill in just a little over 4 seconds. The average fuel consumption in the Bentayga stands at 12.8 L / 100 km (22.1 mpg UK / 16 mpg US) and the CO2 emissions stop at 292 g/km.
