The upcoming Bentley Bentayga is the topic of much debate because she seems to be a very complex lady right off the jump. Now it is being teased that the diesel Bentayga is getting an electric-aided turbocharger to go with that glorious W12 engine. The feature will be called the E-boost to appeal to gearheads with thunder in their veins and a thirst for that boost.
Bentley Bentayga is all about that boost, bout that boost—no trouble.
The luxury carmaker has revealed that the Bentley Bentayga will eventually offer both diesel and plug-in hybrid variants, with the keyword being eventually. And to keep attention focused in their direction, they have begun to build up on those future models by sharing details like the turbocharging. Is anyone else getting the vibe that Bentley wants us all to be aware that not only is the Bentayga going to be capable of competing in the SUV arena, but that it will be a threat to competitors in the hybrid and speed sectors as well? It is only natural for the hard-working engineers at Bentley to want to share the good news regarding what they are working on and what is to come from the marquee. While the automotive industry is certainly fierce when it comes to competition, secrets do not remain so for extended periods of time because everything must emerge and sell at some point!
Claims are that the electric-aided turbocharger for the Bentley Bentayga works by an electric motor that spools up the turbo compressor wheel at lower revs. It keeps a spin during acceleration and factors out turbo lag for refined responsiveness. The electric turbo requires the new 48-bolt electric system to function, look for it in the next-gen Audi SUV offerings because that will be the prototype hidden in plain view, ladies and gents.
