Duerheimer told journalists last week that the SUV’s level of luxury would be "extraordinary." He said some versions would cost more than the company’s most expensive car, the Mulsanne sedan, which sells for 229,000 pounds (294,000 euros).
The Bentayga will be powered by Bentley’s 12-cylinder gasoline engine, with a plug-in hybrid and a V-8 diesel coming later.
Bentley expects the vehicle to help almost double its annual vehicle sales to 20,000 by 2020. The brand's global sales increased by 9 percent last year to a record 11,020.
