The new Flying Spur Hybrid comes with an additional 95 bhp over the Bentayga Hybrid. The company is moving real fast to attaining a very high-performance electric vehicle.
This sedan is the most efficient car in the Bentley lineup to have the capacity to cover 700km when fully fueled, this means more money to your pockets because you won’t buy much petrol. It can accelerate from rest to 60 mph in just 4.1 seconds and 0 – 100 km/h in 4.3 seconds, is that not impressive? The new hybrid powertrain brings about a reduction in fuel consumption while providing a refined performance.

The new systems in the Flying Spur Hybrid
To offer the maximum luxury experience, the company added a class-leading portfolio of intelligent and intuitive equipment that will enhance the occupant’s comfort. The systems include My Battery Charge, My Car Statistics, and My Cabin Comfort, all these are now part of the upgraded car-connected services.
The systems provide further feedback to the driver, the driver instruments now show additional information showing when the car is operating solely in EV drive, regenerating while deaccelerating or using the combustion engine.
The new powertrain (Electric Motor) is powered by a 14.1 kWh lithium-ion battery that can be charged to 100 percent in just two and a half hours. Power electronics convert the energy stored from the high voltage battery to supply the E-motor or supplement the existing 12v vehicle electrical infrastructure.
The company delivers the Flying Spur Hybrid with all the required market-specific cables that will facilitate charging of the vehicle at the home or via industrial charge points at work or public car parks.
In addition to the standard equipment supplied with the sedan, customers can also choose a Bentley branded wall box available as a no-cost option, providing an attractive solution housing the charging unit and storing the charge cables neatly.
The new 2022 Flying Spur Hybrid comes with three E Modes, they include EV Drive, Hybrid Mode, and Hold Mode. They are designed to help the driver manage battery usage during the journey, though this can be managed automatically by the car.
- The EV Drive: This is the default mode, it engages once the car is switched on. It’s an ideal mode for city driving and shorter journeys.
- Hybrid Mode: The Hybrid Mode maximizes the vehicle’s efficiency and range using data from the intelligent navigation system. It’s a suitable longer journey and uses predictive E-Mode and engine coasting while following directions from the navigation system.
Once you input the destination, the car will automatically engage the correct Drive Mode for each part of the journey by constantly calculating the most efficient use of battery charge and storing electrical energy for sections of the journey where it is most useful.
Once the vehicle reaches its destination, the system will reduce the onboard charge to zero to maximize overall efficiency.
- Hold: The Hold mode balances the engine and electric power to hold a high voltage battery charge for later use conserving electric energy. This is the default mode when the driver selects Sport to provide consistent boost and recuperation.
