The average insurance cost of owning a Bentley can vary depending on your situation, including your age, how often you drive the car and your driving history. It can be surprisingly low if you fall into a certain category. For instance, if you’re a middle-age driver with a good driving record who rarely uses the car, the cost could be as low as $2,000 a year. But if you’re in your 20s and have numerous driving citations, you might pay up to $16,000 a year to insure this hand-crafted luxury automobile.
Bentleys come equipped with many standard safety features, which helps with insurance costs. This ultimate in luxury car is also rarely stolen, another factor that insurance companies like to see. But with the astronomical purchase price of a Bentley, you’re still looking at a hefty insurance premium.
Bentley is currently working on a plug-in hybrid version of its luxury SUV the Bentayga. It will feature a hybrid powertrain designed around entirely new Bentley technology. But just like other Bentley models, it is build by hand at the Crewe, England, Bentley factory. The Bentayga Hybrid is not yet available to order, but will be available in select markets the second half of 2018.
Founded by W.O. Bentley in London in 1919, Bentley Motors was later acquired by Rolls-Royce in the 1930s, and eventually became part of Volkswagen Group in the 1990s. Although now owned by a German automaker, Bentley’s headquarters remain in England, where they continue their tradition of creating some of the world’s most desirable high performance automobiles.
Bentley enlisted creator Philippe Starck to create the Bentley x Starck Power Dock, an elegant recharging unit for the Bentayga Hybrid. The power dock stores the charging cable and allow drivers to plug in and recharge their Bentayga Hybrid at home. The design is not only beautiful, it is also eco-friendly — the Bentley x Starck Power Dock is made using sustainable materials.
The cost of insuring your Bentley is likely to be pricey because of the car’s high price tag. But be sure to shop around to find the best car insurance for you.
You’ll find that just like this car is difficult for most drivers to attain, finding coverage also can be difficult. A few big-name providers will insure a Bentley, but you may need to look into specialty insurers of exotic vehicles and sports cars. This type of coverage is sometimes called “classic” auto insurance.
