Bentley CEO confirms some sort of plug-in hybrid, someday
But, and here's a bit of a twist, Durheimer said he realizes consumers are becoming more environmentally conscious, so the automaker plans to eventually equip a vehicle with a plug-in hybrid powertrain that uses technology borrowed from Volkswagen. Details weren't released, but Durheimer hinted the plug-in hybrid will have an electric-only range of between 16 and 19 miles. Finally, Bentley is still considering diesel engines, but says it won't offer an oil-burning mill until the level of refinement reaches gasoline-fueled engines. Looks like the "Bentley going green" meme might have legs as long as the company's 12 cylinder engines.
