Report: Bentley going diesel and hybrid next year

When you think of hybrids, Bentley is one name that most likely wouldn’t cross your mind. Well that’s about to change. According to the Dow Jones Newswires, the Volkswagen owned luxury auto maker is considering hybrid and diesel engines within the next two years. Bentley CEO, Franz Josef Paefgen, said the first decisions concerning installing hybrid and diesel engines in Bentley models will be made this year.

Bentley, at the Geneva Motor Show, unveiled their new Brooklands Coupe, which is probably anything but environmentally-friendly with its 6.75 liter twin-turbocharged V8 engine that produces 530 horsepower. Nonetheless, its a start in helping out the environment and driving in ultimate-luxury style.
