THE FLYING SPUR HYBRID
Bentley’s hybrid range demonstrates that hybridisation does not compromise luxury or performance. The Flying Spur Hybrid proves this by using the highly innovative third powertrain to deliver an unperceivable blend between the internal combustion engine and electric motor, refined serenity is on offer regardless of driving mode or style. Subtle exterior visual differences for the Flying Spur Hybrid include a ‘Hybrid’ front fender badge, quad oval tailpipes and a covered universal charging point on the left hand rear fender.
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 700 km when fully fuelled. The E-motor is powered by a 14.1 kWh lithium ion battery and can be charged to 100 per cent in as little as two and a half hours (region specific).
The combined powertrain propels the Flying Spur Hybrid from 0-60 mph in under 4.5 seconds and on to a top speed of 177 mph, which gives little away to the Flying Spur V8 in acceleration. The authentic Bentley character of effortless, refined performance is maintained, whilst the new powertrain achieves a significant reduction in fuel consumption.
Inside the cabin, the automatic Start-Stop switch has been replaced with a control for the three E Modes – EV Drive, Hybrid Mode and Hold Mode, enabling the driver to manage the battery usage during a journey. EV Drive mode is engaged as soon as the car is switched on, and maximises the electric driving experience, whilst additional information is available via the instrument panel, heads up display and centre screen, including range, battery level and charging information. This is ideal for city driving and for shorter journeys.
The Flying Spur Hybrid incorporates a class-leading portfolio of intelligent and intuitive equipment tailored to the driver and passengers. An embedded SIM is provided, meaning My Bentley connected car features no longer require customers to provide their own data connection. My Bentley in-car and remote services is a continually-developing range of services available to customers through a dedicated app, available both on Apple iOS and Android mobile platforms.
Remote services - subject to regional availability - are accessible through the My Bentley app, including a range of features our customers now come to expect – from ‘find my car’ and ‘lock my car’, through to My Battery Charge, My Car Statistics, and My Cabin Comfort.
