The new Bentley Flying Spur Hybrid – the second electrified grand tourer in Bentley’s model range – has been certified as the most efficient and economical Bentley to date. With WLTP certification and type approval in place, the Bentley Flying Spur Hybrid records an average CO2 emission figure of just 75 g / km.
The most efficient model
The introduction of the Flying Spur Hybrid establishes a range of Bentley hybrids for the first time, underlining Bentley’s commitment to becoming an end-to-end carbon-neutral automaker and world leader in sustainable luxury mobility. Once certified, the Bentley Flying Spur Hybrid is now available for order in the UK and Europe, and other markets will 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 will have a fully electric model portfolio by 2024. 2030.
Flying Spur demonstrates that hybridization does not compromise either luxury or performance. With an imperceptible mix of internal combustion engine and electric motor, refined serenity is offered regardless of condition or driving style.
The combination of a highly efficient motor and an advanced electric motor provides the same flexibility and functionality as the W12 and V8 powertrains offered today, for a responsive, engaging and highly refined experience.
The new powertrain combines a 2.9-liter V6 petrol engine with an advanced electric motor that provides a total of 544 hp and 750 Nm of torque, an additional 95 hp compared to the Bentayga Hybrid. The new Flying Spur will be the most efficient Bentley to date capable of covering more than 800 km on a full tank.
With high power reserves, superior torque and fast throttle response, the latest hybrid model provides little room for the Flying Spur V8 in acceleration ranging from 0-100 km / h in 4.3 seconds. The new powertrain delivers a significant reduction in fuel consumption while retaining the authentic Bentley character of refined, effortless performance.
The electric motor is powered by an 18.0 kWh lithium-ion battery (usable) and can be recharged to 100% in as little as two and a half hours (region specific). The power electronics convert stored energy from the high voltage battery to power the electric motor or supplement the vehicle’s existing 12 V electrical infrastructure.
Beautiful materials and modern design
The interior of the Flying Spur demonstrates Bentley’s expertise in creating a cabin that is modern, luxurious and unsurpassed in innovation. With the comprehensive range of specifications, customers can choose from a choice of fifteen leather colors (five standard and ten optional) and eight different veneers to create an individual specification. Sewing and badging can also be specified in solid or contrasting colors, along with the option of contrast tubes on the seat covers – reminiscent of the original Flying Spur from the 1950s.
Building on the company’s heritage, Bentley’s craftsmanship also continues to evolve, offering modern features such as 3D leather door panels and diamond quilting on the seats (included in the specification’s driving instructions).
Customers can also specify their vehicle from the additional extended paint area of over 60 exterior colors, including Mulliner and Personal Commission. The Blackline specification offers a modern alternative to exterior lights, including a dark version of the optional illuminated electric Flying B.
With dealers now able to take orders from customers, the launch of the Flying Spur Hybrid is just one of the next steps for Bentley on its Beyond100 path to becoming the world’s most sustainable luxury car brand.
