The 2022 Bentley Flying Spur Hybrid Is a True Land Yacht

The luxury cruise liner packs Panamera hybrid power but sticks to posh style.

Bentley isn’t known for being an environmentally or economically conscious purchase—it’s an extravagance. Bentley also has a long history of performance behind its name, which means there’s an understanding that your Bentley will not only whisk you away in style, it’ll do so in a hurry.

Well, the times are changing, and Bentley is ushering electrified powertrains into its portfolio. Part of this push is a hybrid powertrain-equipped Flying Spur. The company’s flagship sedan now features a 2.9-liter V6 that mates to a hybrid system and sends 536 hp and 553 lb-ft of torque to the wheels. Admittedly, that’s down slightly in power from the V8, but you see an increase in fuel efficiency of 2 mpg combined over that V8. This means the Flying Spur Hybrid sees a combined EPA rating of 19 mpg.

On this episode of Quick Spin, host Wesley Wren hops behind the wheel of the 2022 Bentley Flying Spur Hybrid and puts it through its paces. Wren shows you around the Flying Spur and highlights its styling and features before taking you along for a drive review. Wren chats with west coast editor Mark Vaughn about the Flying Spur, and the two chat about the hybrid powertrain, the electrification of Bentley, and more. Closing the show, the two break down what makes this Flying Spur special.
