The Bentley SUV is being teased again ahead of its official debut.

Bentley’s engineers are “now completely dedicated to creating the world’s most powerful and luxurious SUV,” the company said in a press release.

The SUV will be offered as a plug-in hybrid and will be the first model with such a powertrain to wear a Bentley badge. Initial models will arrive in 2016 with the plug-in version following in 2017.

Bentley said in March that it expects the SUV to create an entirely new segment in the auto market. Bentley’s concept preview of the SUV took styling cues from the Mulsanne and received a lukewarm reception at its 2012 Geneva Motor Show debut.

The first teaser Bentley released this year of the new SUV revealed that its front fascia is more in line with the Continential. Today’s clip offers glimpses of the wheels spinning, shots of the rear quarter panel and of course the front.
