On July 6, Bentley unveiled the brand’s second-ever plug-in vehicle, the Bentley Flying Spur Hybrid. The luxury sedan follows the Bentley Bentayga Hybrid SUV that debuted in 2015.

The new Flying Spur Hybrid uses a 410-horsepower V6 engine and an electric motor that produces the equivalent of 134 horsepower, a combined output that matches that of the conventional Flying Spur’s V8 engine—although it’s far quieter, with “a lot” fewer emissions, said Adrian Hallmark, Bentley’s chairman and chief executive officer, during a video conference announcing the car.
