Bentley has a new plug-in hybrid Flying Spur sedan on the way

BentleyBentleyBentleyBritish luxury brand Bentley is developing a second plug in hybrid to go with the Bentayga hybrid SUV. It is an electrified version the Flying Spur sedan and represents the next step on Bentley's decade-long journey towards becoming a fully electric car manufacturer.This Bentley uses six cylinders instead of the V8 or W12 engines and has a displacement of 2.9 L. It's the same powertrain that you will find in the hybrid Porsche Panamera, so if this sounds familiar it's because it is. Volkswagen Group owns Bentley, just like Porsche and Audi.For Bentley, the V6's output has been slightly increased to 410 HP (305 kW) & 406 lbft (550Nm). It is combined with a permanent magnet synchronous motor of 134 horsepower (100 kW), which is located in the same place as the transmission. The 14.1 kWh battery packs powers it.This should provide an electric-only range range of approximately 20-25 miles (32-40km), while Bentley claims that the Flying Spur Hybrid should cover more than 434 miles (735 km). It still performs just like a Bentley as it can reach 60 mph in 4.1 seconds. The top speed is 177 mph (25 km/h). This assumes you have a long enough road, and have an agreement with the local traffic enforcement agency.Bentley claims that the first fully electric vehicle will be available in 2025, and that it will cease offering internal combustion engines by 2030.Listing image by Bentley
