Bentley is ready to begin work on its most luxurious offering.
Years ago, it would have been difficult to imagine that Bentley’s flagship vehicle would be an SUV. However, the world’s love for luxury SUVs and the immense popularity of the Bentley Bentayga resulted in Bentley announcing that it would feature the height of its luxury in the new Bentley Bentayga EWB. As the Bentayga EWB is Bentley’s latest flagship offering, its production involves Bentley’s most detailed, intensive, and meticulous craftsmanship, and the start of that production is closer than ever as the team of craftspeople has achieved the sign-off to begin production of the various elements of luxury in the vehicle.
In total, over 132 hours of work are required to hand build the Bentley Bentayga EWB at Bentley’s carbon-neutral Crewe factory, down to the finest details like the perforations in the leather on the door panels less than 1 millimeter wide, Bentley’s softest-ever quilting, a stitching process derived from Bentley’s EXP 100 GT concept car from 2019, and of course, the wooden dashboards that have become a signature staple of automotive luxury. The wood set in each Bentayga EWB takes over 10 hours to curate. On top of that, Bentley offers the Metal Overlay feature for the veneer for the first time, which adds metal less than a tenth of a millimeter thick to the design. Another feature available for the new Bentayga EWB is the new Bentley Diamond Illumination, which boasts 68 LEDs that shine through perforations in the leather trim of the door panels. The light they emit can be configured with different colors and intensities and adds to the perfect configurable atmosphere of the vehicle.
One of the most luxurious and prominent features of the new Bentley Bentayga EWB is the Airline seat, which is Bentley’s most luxurious rear seat yet with more adjustments to posture and temperature than ever before, and a system that allows the seat to adjust itself to make you more comfortable and refreshed. The Airline Seat is ordered by 50% of Bentayga EWB customers, and the same goes for the Diamond Illumination. For 30% of customers, Bentley Bentayga EWB orders include the extended paint range, metal overlays in the veneer, and open-pore wood. With all of these options both available and popular, the Bentayga EWB is a show of Bentley’s peerless ability for craftsmanship.
