The other two are a hybrid V6 engine and a pure V12 engine without electrical support. If the V12 is realized, it will be the birth of the third 12-cylinder SUV in history, following the Rolls-Royce “Cullinan” and the Bentley “Bentayga W12.” However, long wheelbase and coupe versions are also rumored, and it is not possible to determine what version will be released in the end.
