Bow To The Bentayga: Bentley Officially Names New Super-Luxury SUV

Luxury / Comments

Bentley christens its first-ever SUV.

Having registered the name back in November, Bentley has now confirmed its upcoming ultra-luxury SUV will be called the 'Bentayga.' The name, for those that care, comes from Roque Bentayga, a 4642-foot mountain peak in the Canary Islands. Alternatively, it's a portmanteau of Bentley and Taiga – the world's largest transcontinental snowforest. Either way, it's inspired by the sort of terrain it's been designed to tackle.

Bentley CEO, Wolfgang Dürheimer, commented: "Bentayga is a name that reflects what we know our SUV will do better than any other car in the world – combine the best automotive luxury with outstanding performance to take the Bentley experience to new environments."

The British carmaker will reveal the ground-breaking SUV later this year, and will eventually be offered with W12, V8 and plug-in hybrid powerplants. Apart from the teaser video and an image of a slick set of B-shaped vents, that's all we have for now. Months of endless teasing will doubtless follow. So brace yourself for that.
