The Rolls Royce Cullinan Might Go Hybrid, Get More Power
It’s hard to predict how many customers around the world will buy a brand new Rolls-Royce Cullinan, but initial data shows sales are already exceeding expectations. It’s arguably the most opulent SUV on the market today (sorry, Bentayga), yet its development is not done yet. Apparently, the Goodwood-based automaker’s first “all-terrain high-bodied car” is slated to get a hybrid powertrain, which should boost both efficiency and power.
According to a recent report from >TopGear, a hybrid Cullinan is “definitely on the cards” with sources close to the matter claiming that "extra power is on the way.” The SUV is currently powered by a 6.75-liter biturbo V12 engine, good for 563 bhp and 627 pound-feet of torque at a low 1,600 rpm. Simply put, expect to see a healthy increase in both power and torque number thanks to the added electric boost.
