    “With certification secured, 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,” Bentley noted.

    The aforementioned model is equipped with a 2.9-liter V6 gasoline engine with an advanced electric motor that can provide a maximum churn of 537 horses and 750Nm of torque95hp more powerful than the Bentayga Hybrid. A fully-fueled Bentley Flying Spur Hybrid can cover up to 800 kilometers.

    The same powertrain allows the vehicle to run 0-100kph in 4.3 seconds.

    The electric motor is equipped with an 18kWh lithium-ion battery and can be fully charged in as fast as 2.5 hours. The power electronics, Bentley noted, convert the energy stored from the high voltage battery to supply the e-motor or supplement the existing 12-volt vehicle electrical infrastructure.

    Back in December last year, Bentley Philippines has announced that it will bring the hybrid versions of both Flying Spur and the Bentayga by 2022.
