Bentley Reveals New Flying Spur Hybrid Plug-In As It Moves To Electrify

Bentley is working on a second plug-in hybrid vehicle to join the Bentayga plug-in hybrid SUV.

It’s an electric version of Bentley’s Flying Spur sedan, and it’s the next stage in the company’s decade-long path to becoming a fully electric vehicle manufacturer.

Bentley’s newest hybrid model illustrates that hybridization does not mean sacrificing luxury or performance.

The new Flying Spur Hybrid continues on the success of the third generation Flying Spur, offering the most ecologically friendly Bentley to date thanks to a new powertrain.

The new powertrain combines a 2.9-litre V6 petrol engine with an electric motor to provide 536 bhp (544 PS) and 750 Nm (553 lb.ft) of torque, which is an increase of 95 horsepower over the Bentayga Hybrid. The new Flying Spur is the most fuel-efficient Bentley ever, with a range of nearly 700 kilometres when fully fuelled. 

The inside is stylish and distinctive, with comfy seats in five hide colours and Bentley’s “Wing” motif running over the bottom console and fascia. The Colour Specification option offers 10 more hide colours and two duo-tone inside combinations for even more options.

Customer orders can be taken from summer onwards, and the first customer deliveries are due before the end of 2021.

In announcing the new model, Bentley said its range being will be electrified by 2023, the first battery-electric Bentley will arrive by 2025 and an electric-only range will be delivered by 2030.
