Improved fuel efficiency and lower CO2 emissions are a big part of every automakers continuous development. Every major automaker has a hybrid model in their line-up and the latest to join the party is Bentley with their Mulsanne-based Hybrid Concept, set for a public debut later this month at the Beijing Motor Show.

The Hybrid Concept previews Bentley’s first plug-in hybrid model, that will be offered in an all-new upcoming SUV available first with petrol engine in 2016 and as a hybrid in 2017.

Powertrain details are limited, but the plug-in hybrid system will offer a power increase of up to 25% together with a 70% reduction in CO2 emissions.

In addition Bentley hybrids will also be capable of driving at least 31 miles on electric power alone, which is plenty for most people for their city driving and once on the open road, the standard combustion engine can kick in.

Based on the Mulsanne, the Hybrid Concept features copper styling elements inside-out from copper covered body parts to copper stitching.
