Bentley’s upcoming SUV named Bentayga—the name is attributed to an iconic peak called the Roque Bentayga in the Canary Islands and also, the Taiga Forests in the north of England—is expected to be revealed this year. Although, at debut, it is expected to sport a 12-cylinder engine in the company’s trademark W configuration, in 2017, Bentley will debut a V8 diesel engine in the Bentayga, similar to the one in the Porsche Cayenne or the Audi Q7/A8. Bentley will also launch the Bentayga with a hybrid powerplant, with either a V6 or V8 petrol. One of the features of this power plant is its ability to run for up to 50 km on pure electric power.
