The entire Bentley lineup will be electrified in the years to come. The Bentayga is not only Bentley’s first production model to run on diesel, but it will also be the first partially electrified. It will happen in 2018 when the folks from Crewe will introduce this, the Bentayga plug-in hybrid. Spied undergoing testing in Spain, the prototype looked virtually the same as the conventionally powered model, but with one exception: a fuel cap on the rear fender on the SUV’s left side. That’s where the charger will be plugged in to feed the batteries with electricity. Revealed: Bentley Bentayga Hybrid Live From Geneva Motor Show A quick search of the license plate with U.K.’s Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency reveals the Bentayga was registered on September 2016, but that’s not really very important, is it?

Be efficient, luxurious, fast, comfortable, and look good while doing all of the above. There’s no denying the second-generation Panamera is considerably more attractive than its predecessor, and in this new long-wheelbase Executive version it looks more imposing while retaining the sleekness of the regular model. Comparing the two, the distance between the two axles has increased by 5.9 inches (150 mm) to 122 inches (3100 mm) for the sake of boosting rear legroom and making the Panamera an even more capable grand tourer. In total, there are now no less than 10 members in the Panamera family, including this 4 E-Hybrid Executive version depicted here. Just like the standard-wheelbase model , the stretched version couples a biturbo 2.9-liter V6 engine with an electric motor to generate a combined output of 462 horsepower (340 kilowatts) and 517 pound-feet (700 Newton-meters) of torque. It’s enough hybrid punch to grant the car with a sprint from a standstill to 62 mph (100 … [Read more...] about Porsche Panamera 4 E-Hybrid Executive LWB wants to do it all
It will be 201 inches (5.1 meters) long. Rumors of a larger Defender emerged even before Land Rover revived the legendary off-roader in September 2019. Company executives have now officially confirmed a three-row derivative is in the pipeline and will be on sale within the next 18 months. Known as the Defender 130 , the more spacious SUV "will hit a sweet spot in North America, China and also the Middle East, which we're not yet touching," according to Chief Financial Officer Adrian Mardell. According to an internal document from a couple of years ago, the more family-friendly derivative will retain the 119-in (3,022-mm) wheelbase of the Defender 110 while stretching the overall length by about 13 inches (342 millimeters) to 201 inches (5,100 millimeters). The same document referred to the Defender 130 as being a "premium explorer" with eight seats.

"Limited lease sales" are planned though. In November last year, Honda announced it had "received the required type designation for Level 3 automated driving" in Japan. This approval allows the company to sell cars in the country, equipped with Level 3 autonomous driving systems . It took Honda just four months to prepare the 2021 Legend equipped with the tech for public sales. Starting today, the Honda Legend EX with the so-called Honda Sensing Elite will be available for lease sales in Japan. The semi-autonomous driving system upgrades the existing Honda Sensing family of systems, available for models of the brand in Europe and the United States.

The SUV's facelift will also allegedly bring a high-performance Sport RS version. Lamborghini has been spotted on multiple occasions testing a mid-cycle facelift for the Urus, and a new report from Car Magazine claims the disguise will come off sometime in 2022. The revised variant of the "Super SUV" is expected to bring an extension of the family as Sant'Agata Bolognese is allegedly planning a plug-in hybrid version and also a non-electrified Sport RS. The PHEV has been a long time coming, with Lamborghini's chief technical officer Maurizio Reggiani revealing in an interview nearly three years ago the Urus would get a charging port within 18 months. That obviously didn't happen, but it appears the LM 002's spiritual successor is getting closer to jumping on the electrified bandwagon.
