Bentley Bentayga will have diesel option

Bentley has confirmed that there will be a diesel version of its new Bentayga SUV.

This powertrain will make use of an electric-driven turbocharger to eliminate turbo lag. This system is also expected to make its debut in the Q7, but nothing has been confirmed yet from Audi’s side.

Obviously, no performance figures are available yet, but the word on the street is that it will produce in excess of 1000Nm of torque.

That’s probably enough.
