The second electrified grand tourer in Bentley’s model range, the new Flying Spur Hybrid completes Type Approval as the most efficient Bentley ever produced. With WLTP certification and Type Approval in place, the luxury car registers an average CO2 figure of just 75 g/km. The Flying Spur Hybrid is now available to order in the UK and Europe – with other markets to follow soon. By 2024, the entire model range will be available with a hybrid option, ahead of the introduction of the first Bentley Battery Electric Vehicle (BEV) in 2025 and the company having an entirely BEV-only model portfolio by 2030.
Fitted with a highly efficient engine and advanced E-Motor, the car offers a responsive, engaging and supremely refined experience. The new powertrain combines a 2.9-litre V6 petrol engine with an advanced electric motor, delivering a total of 536 bhp (544 PS) and 750 Nm (553 lb.ft) of torque – an additional 95 bhp in comparison to the Bentayga Hybrid. The new Flying Spur becomes the most efficient Bentley ever having the capability to cover over 800 km when fully fuelled.
With high power reserves, superior torque and quick throttle response the latest hybrid model gives little away to the Flying Spur V8 in acceleration, passing 60 mph from a standstill in 4.1 seconds (0-100 km/h in 4.3 secs). The new powertrain gains a significant reduction in fuel consumption.
The E-motor draws power from a 18.0 kWh (usable) lithium ion battery that can be charged to 100 percent in as little as two and a half hours (region specific). The power electronics convert the energy stored from the high voltage battery to supply the E-Motor or supplement the existing 12v vehicle electrical infrastructure.
Bentley’s customers can choose between a selection of fifteen (five standard and ten optional) leather colors and eight different veneers to create the cabin of their dream. Stitching and emblems can also be specified in blind or contrast colours, as well as the option of contrast piping to the seat covers.
Moreover, customers may opt for such contemporary features as 3D leather door panels and lofted diamond quilting to the seats (included in the Mulliner Driving Specification). They can also specify their vehicle from the additional extended paint range of over 60 exterior colors, including Mulliner and personal commission. The blackline specification offers a contemporary alternative to exterior brightware including a dark version of the optional illuminated electric Flying B.
