Exclusive Motors, the official partner for Bentley in India, has announced the launch of the new Bentayga Extended Wheelbase (EWB) for the Indian market at INR 6 crore ex-showroom, India. The prices are subject to exchange rate fluctuations, customisation and government taxes, the company announced.
The Bentayga EWB is powered by a 4 litre, 32-valve dual twin-scroll turbocharged V8 petrol engine mated to an 8-speed automatic gearbox, developing 550 PS and 770 Nm of torque. The SUV can reach a claimed top speed of 290 km/h and can sprint from zero to 100 kmph in 4.6 seconds.
It was also announced that two enhanced variants of Bentayga Extended Wheelbase will be available at launch – Azure and 1st Edition.
The Azure offers a unique 22 inch 10-spoke directional wheel, bright lower bumper grilles, Azure embroidery and badging. Additional features include unique quilted seats, mood lighting, heated steering wheel, and increased drivers’ assistance aids.
The top of the line 1st edition gets Bentley diamond illumination, metal overlays in the veneer, name for Bentley premium audio and LED welcome labs along with unique embroidery, inlays and badging.
The EWB variant of the luxury SUV stretches 180 mm longer than the standard vehicle, primarily for rear cabin comfort. At the rear it features airline seat specification with 22 ways of adjusting the auto climate sensing system and postural adjusting technology.
The auto climate seat technology senses occupant temperature and surface humidity and then determines whether to apply heat, ventilation or both simultaneously to keep the occupant at optimum thermal well-being. Meanwhile, the postural adjustment system automatically makes micro-adjustments to the occupants’ seating position and pressure points by measuring pressure across the seat surface.
Furthermore, to enhance comfort, the SUV also features Bentley dynamic ride, the 48 V active anti- roll control system as standard.
Satya Bagla, Managing Director, Exclusive Motors, said the new SUV has a rear-cabin experience comparable to the legendary Mulsanne.
