Bentley Flying Spur hybrid spotted testing

The 2019 Bentley Flying Spur plug-in hybrid has been spotted testing on European soil. The upcoming hybrid Flying Spur will use the electrified 2.9-litre V6 powertrain found in the Porsche Panamera 4 E-Hybrid, rather than the system from the Bentayga hybrid.

The Flying Spur PHEV is expected to offer at least 456bhp and 516lb ft. of torque, however these figures could potentially rise as this is what the cheaper Panamera hybrid generates. The plug-in hybrid will have an electric only range of 30 miles and will form part of the new Flying Spur range, which will feature a new distinctive design. The Flying Spur will also be offered with V8 and W12 engines, but no diesel engines.

No indication of cost has been confirmed yet, however the plug-in hybrid is expected to be released at the start of 2019.
