Following the launch of the Flying Spur Odyssean Edition in 2021, Bentley is unveiling the Bentayga Odyssean Edition, that continues the story of extraordinary sustainable design. Similar to the very first Odyssean, the new Bentayga takes advantage of the benefits provided by a Hybrid powertrain. The new edition will be strictly limited to just 70 examples.
The Bentayga Hybrid’s V6 petrol engine, electric motor and new and improved 18.0 kWh battery provide a remarkable spectrum of performance, from the calm of near-silent, zero emission EV mode to full-throttle acceleration, with an electric-only range improved to at least 28 miles (45 km) on the WLTP cycle. The 3.0-litre TFSI V6 petrol engine and 100 kW electric motor-generator power the SUV from zero to 62 miles an hour (100 km/h) in just 5.3 seconds, with a top speed of 158 mph (254 km/h).
The open pore Koa veneer of the centre console uses 90% less lacquer than high-gloss veneers. Thus driver and passengers can admire the natural surface texture and aesthetic of the wood. Selected from only the very best, most figured stock available, open-pore veneer is painted with just three ultra-thin layers of lacquer, together totalling only 0.1 mm in thickness. The fascias and waistrails are finished in a minimalist Piano Linen veneer. Sustainable natural leather is used widely across the cabin, thanks to its long-term durability. The cabin also features panels of beautifully crafted tweed made from 100% British wool, twisting a blend of tonal colours into a bespoke yarn to create a unique natural luxury textile especially for Bentley. Accents to the interior are in a soft, warm hide called Autumn, with customers able to choose from five specifications that utilise Beluga, Porpoise, Cricketball, Brunel or Burnt Oak leather in tandem with light, modern Linen hide.
The luxury SUV features painted Pale Brodgar accents on the 22” ten spoke wheels and lower brightware (front and rear bumpers, headlight and tail light surrounds and lower body side chrome). Customers can select one out of six exterior colors that are created to harmonize with the Pale Brodgar accents. The full Bentley palette of over 60 colors can be chosen from.
The Odyssean Edition prioritises the wellbeing and comfort of the vehicle’s occupants. The Front Seat Comfort Specification provides up to 22-way adjustability and a heating and ventilation function to maintain the body’s optimum temperature. The sense of safe, serene progress and relaxed control is enhanced by the Touring Specification of driver assistance systems. Adaptive Cruise Control maintains a set distance from the vehicle in front, slowing down (to a halt if necessary) when the vehicle in front does so and resuming the set speed once the lane is clear. Together with Lane Assist, Traffic Assist and Bentley Safeguard, Bentley’s range of onboard radar and camera systems monitor the surrounding traffic and roads.
The Bentayga Hybrid features three E Modes – EV Drive, Hybrid Mode and Hold Mode. Driver can manually manage battery usage during a journey.
By 2025, the full Bentley line-up will be offered with hybrid powertrains, coinciding with the launch of the first ever Bentley Battery Electric Vehicle (BEV).
