It barely can go a mile per kWh of total battery capacity.

According to the EPA range and energy consumption ratings, the plug-in hybrid 2020 Bentley Bentayga Hybrid turns a kWh of battery capacity into just a mile of range - literally.

This luxury SUV gets up to 18 miles (29 km) in all-electric mode, using a 17.3 kWh battery pack. Just imagine how big the pack would have to be if an all-electric version of this car would go 200 miles.

The range itself is not that bad, but the efficiency in both all-electric and hybrid modes are pretty low. Just take a look at a comparison with a conventional version with a bigger engine.

We assume that the plug-in hybrid is a better option because of the smoothness and silence of electric drive in everyday commuting.
