Bentley launches the Flying Spur plug-in hybrid

After Bentley announced the transition to fully electric and hybrid vehicles by 2026, Bentley began showcasing current green transition vehicles.

After the hybrid Bentayga all-wheel drive, the company is now relying on the more powerful Flying Spur sedan.

Most automakers have stuck to electric cars: Ford, General Motors, Mercedes, Kia, and Nissan have all developed electric models.

And if automakers like Bentley are to achieve their goals, they will need to mass-produce electric cars, especially if they want to compete with Tesla, which currently has a market for luxury electric vehicles.

The second hybrid from Bentley is equipped with an electric motor and a 2.9-liter V6 engine with 410 hp and 550 Nm of torque, a speed of up to 5650 rpm and a twin turbocharger.

The electric motor is installed between the gearbox and the electric motor and can generate up to 134 hp and 400 Nm of torque.

That's 95 horsepower more than the Bentayga plug-in hybrid SUV.

The car has an acceleration time of 4.1 seconds from 0-100 km/h and a top speed of 285 km/h and is compatible with the Flying Spur V8 model.

To improve emissions, the new engine uses injectors and spark plugs located in each combustion chamber to achieve the best atomization position.

According to Bentley, the Flying Spur is equipped with a 14.1 kW battery that can provide a pure electric range of about 40 kilometres. It takes about two and a half hours to charge the lithium-ion battery.

Since many inland cities have to convert hybrid vehicles to fully electric vehicles, these numbers are very important.

Some car manufacturers have developed technologies that can convert fully hybrid vehicles into fully electric vehicles in environmental areas.

The company said customers can choose from three driving modes to control battery usage, including an electric vehicle mode.

This allows the car to store energy in the city. The combined range of petrol and electric vehicles is more than 700 km.

Few visual details distinguish the new plug-in hybrid from other products in the Flying Spur range.

The Flying Spur Hybrid will start at $220,000 and go on sale this summer. Delivery must start before the end of the year.
