What's the news?

Bentley continues its new SUV tease, this time releasing a stylish video that offers tantalising glimpses of the new model's lines and detailing without letting us see the car in its entirety.

Filled with lights and reflections the teaser video does not give away too much detail other than the new car will not look like too much like the original EXP-9 concept car that debuted at the 2012 Geneva Motor Show - and which was widely criticised. What Bentley did reveal, and which we already sort of knew, is that when it arrives in 2016 the SUV will be available as a plug-in hybrid.

The make-up of this system is as yet unknown as Bentley has not detailed the powertrain that was used in the Mulsanne Concept revealed at the Chinese Motor Show, but it is expected the hybrid system uses a twin-turbocharged petrol V8 engine, which will deliver in excess of 630hp.

Anything else?

The plug-in hybrid version of the as yet unnamed SUV will be joined by a 6.0-litre W12 engined car - for those who do not need to care about fuel costs or emissions.
