Rolls-Royce Cullinan Might Go Hybrid With More Power Than V12’s 563 HP

The two British automakers may have parted ways long ago, but both released an SUV for the first time ever in their long and distinguished history: Bentley the Bentayga and Rolls-Royce the Cullinan.

Now, as far as the Cullinan is concerned, TopGear reports that there is a good chance of it adopting a hybrid powertrain.

Specs are obviously being kept a secret for now. However, it’s been alleged the hybrid will be more powerful than the current range topper that’s powered by a twin-turbo 6.75-liter V12 rated at 571 PS (563 hp / 420 kW) and 850 Nm (627 lb-ft) of torque. .

Thanks to the extra boost provided by electrification, the Cullinan will be quicker to 100 km/h (62 mph), although we expect the electronically imposed 250 km/h (155 mph) max speed to remain the same.

Another bold statement made by the publication is that there’s a good chance that the Cullinan will remain on sale for the next 14 years, with the occasional makeovers.

Electrification is only the beginning for the BMW-owned brand, as Rolls-Royce is taking into consideration the introduction of a smaller SUV, which might arrive within a few years.

Also, the Rolls-Royce family might eventually expand with a new model above the Phantom, which will be based on its aluminum platform and, according to TG, will be “epic”, “space-age” and “electric”.

    The concept to production on this seems…..crazy fast.

    I believe they first said they would do it in 2015, produce it in 2018, and sell it as 2019.

    Which they exactly did!

    Kudos to Rolls for not being Toyota.
