Bentley will turn green in Beijing with a hybrid Mulsanne
To follow the world trend, Bentley will present a hybrid version of its luxury Mulsanne at the Beijing Auto Show.
With a city fuel consumption of 25 liters per 100 kilometers, the Mulsanne is far from a thrifty car … Bentley seeks to improve its image (and its average consumption!) By presenting a rechargeable Mulsanne, which could go up to 50 km without spending a drop of gasoline, while offering the power and luxury typical of a Bentley.
The visual aspect of this hybrid car is no exception. This concept shows proudly its electric vocation with different accents brass. Headlights, brake calipers, badges and various interior accessories are all handpainted with this metal. In addition, a beautiful bronze bar runs along the sides of the vehicle, and even the charging station is decorated to fit in the car!
One of the interesting Elements mentioned in the press release, however, is a reference to a power increase of 25% with the addition of the electric motor. A quick calculation refers quite dramatic figures: the V8 engine twin turbo, the Mulsanne now develop 631 horses and a torque of 940 foot-pounds, 80 more than the Ford F-350 Super Duty-2015 …
We will see the hybrid Mulsanne for the first time at the Beijing Auto Show, and Auto Guide will be on hand to attend its launch!
