At the Geneva Motor Show earlier this year, Bentley showed us their concept SUV, EXP 9F. Earlier today, Bentley once again revealed their high performance luxury SUV Concept – EXP 9F, images of which you can see here. Celebrating their successful campaign at the Goodwood Festival last week, Bentley releases official images and video of EXP 9F SUV for the first time after Geneva Motor Show.
Later, at the Beijing Motor Show, Bentley revealed powertrain details of their luxury SUV Concept. Bentley revealed that, if all goes well, they plan to offer EXP 9F in three engine choices, a 4.0L V8 twin turbo, a V6 plug-in hybrid, and a 6.0L W12.
At the Beijing Motor Show, Wolfgang Dürheimer, Chairman and Chief Executive, Bentley Motors said, “We are very excited by the potential of a high performance, ultra-luxury Bentley SUV. Since we first showed EXP 9 F at Geneva, the response has been overwhelming. Everyone seems to agree that an SUV is a natural fit for Bentley. An exciting range of drivetrain options including a hybrid V6 are under active consideration but one thing is for sure, any Bentley SUV would offer the thunderous performance for which the marque is renowned.”
