Bentley is introducing capacitive fingerprint sensor technology with a secure stowage unit in the Bentayga – affording customers even greater peace of mind.
Developed by Bentley’s personal commissioning division, Mulliner, the fingerprint sensor technology has been applied to a high-pressure die-cast aluminium secure stowage unit located in the cabin. This discreet and unobtrusive locker creates the ideal place to stow valuables while at the beach, on the ski slope or utilising valet parking services.
With two USB ports and an auxiliary socket, it can also be used for connecting and charging mobile devices both inside and outside the unit, enabling occupants to access Bentayga’s extensive infotainment technology, including Apple CarPlay.
“The Mulliner Biometric Secure Stowage unit is hidden from view,” says Mulliner’s technical operations head Uday Senapati. “We are incorporating the familiar capacitive fingerprint sensor technology from smartphones that can store multiple fingerprints, allowing the user to control who accesses their valuables.”
