The results of these studies were quite interesting and even a little unexpected.
Edition InsideEV”s published data interesting research in which was conducted a comparative analysis of the efficiency and fuel consumption of the Bentley Bentayga with petrol and hybrid engine. Tests conducted by the us Agency for environmental protection. For a correct comparison, the cars were tested in the mixed and rural cycles.
Bentley Bentayga Hybrid is equipped with a 3.0-liter V6 engine that works in tandem with the electric motor, the total efficiency of such power plant reaches 449 HP the Maximum speed of this car is 254 km/h and acceleration to 100 km/h takes just 5.5 seconds. Under the hood of the petrol modification is a 4.0-liter V8 engine, with output of 550 HP
When driving on the highway average fuel consumption for the hybrid version is 11.2 liters, and for petrol engine it amounted to only 10.2 liters. Thus, it is not always the hybrid engine is more economical.
But in combined cycle hybrid modification can manifest itself in all its glory – 100 km this car spent 12.4 liters of fuel, and the fuel consumption for the petrol version was 13.8 liters.
