Bentley continues to make strides in its electrification efforts with the revealing of the brand new Flying Spur plug-in hybrid, the primary Bentley hybrid that is not an SUV and the primary automobile in its class to get a plug-in powertrain.
Not like the Bentayga hybrid, which makes use of a 3.0-liter V6 with a single turbo, the Flying Spur hybrid will get a twin-turbo 2.9-liter V6 producing 410 horsepower and 406 pound-feet of torque. That engine is paired with a 14.1-kWh battery pack and a single electrical motor making 134 hp and 295 lb-ft, for a complete of 537 hp and 553 lb-ft — 94 hp and 37 lb-ft greater than the Bentayga. Bentley says the Flying Spur hybrid will hit 60 mph in 4.1 seconds, only a tenth slower than the, and it’ll attain a high pace of 177 mph, 20 mph slower than the V8.
No US EPA vary estimates can be found but, however Bentley says the Flying Spur hybrid could have an electrical vary of greater than 25 miles on the optimistic European WLTP testing cycle. Perhaps extra importantly, Bentley says that the hybrid’s complete vary of over 435 miles makes it the model’s best automobile ever. There are three hybrid-specific drive modes, the primary of which is the EV mode that’s routinely engaged when the automobile activates. Then there’s the Hybrid mode, which makes use of navigation information and different knowledge to maximise effectivity alongside a journey by altering drive modes and utilizing the electrical energy the place it could be most helpful. Lastly a Maintain mode saves the battery’s cost for later.
Styling modifications are minimal, amounting to hybrid badges on the entrance fenders, quad oval exhaust ideas and a cost port door on the left rear fender. The hybrid is obtainable in seven customary paint colours which have been particularly chosen to “complement the character and magnificence” of the automobile, however the full Bentley vary of over 60 colours is obtainable. As much as 15 completely different inside colours, three wheel sizes and different styling packages are supplied as effectively.
Bentley says order books will open this summer season, with deliveries beginning by the tip of 2021. Pricing hasn’t been introduced but however we count on the hybrid to begin at slightly below $200,000.
