The premium car will offer 25 miles of electric range, according to the European Cycle of WLTP, which is known to be more expansive in comparison to those in the U.S.’s EPA cycle. The engine will be a twin-turbocharged 2.9-liter V-6 engine that produces 405 horsepower, paired with an electric motor that produces 132 horsepower placed behind both the engine and transmission to produce 536 horsepower with 553 lb-ft torque. It’s roughly the same performance as Bentley’s twin-turbocharged V-8 and it can propel the car from 0-60 mph in 4.1 seconds. It will also propel the car to a maximum speed of 177 mph.

Specs

Bentley states that the permanent synchronous motor’s instant torque will cover any turbo lag and the powertrain is in line with the company’s performance as well as improvement expectations. Its 14.1-kwh lithium-ion battery power the motor and is fully charged in just two and a half hours using a level 2 charging. Customers can pick up the Bentley-branded charging station at no cost. It’s the same plug-in hybrid that’s utilized for the Bentayga Hybrid, but that vehicle is powered by a single-turbo that’s less powerful. 3.0-liter V-6.With the lithium-ion battery in the back and the lighter engine in forwarding, Bentley engineering made the smallest modifications to the tuning of the air suspension with three chambers to keep the Flying Spur’s comfortable but athletic performance and ride.

Interior

Inside, drivers have the option of choosing three hybrid-specific driving options: EV Drive, Hybrid, and Hold. EV Drive, the default mode to use when the car is first started, allows maximum electric power and is ideal to take short journeys. Hybrid makes use of both the motor as well as engine to give the greatest efficiency. If a destination is an input in the navigation system, this mode selects the most efficient driving mode for the specific situation using engine coasting when needed as well as storing energy to use in cities and trying to drain the battery once it has reached the location. Hold mode keeps the battery’s charge to be used in the event of need. Hold mode is automatically selected when Sport mode is selected.
