The electric range of up to 25 miles in 670hp SUV – Porsche Cayenne Turbo S plug-in hybrid.
Porsche continues e-mobility expansion, the first time Porsche produced a Cayenne Hybrid was in 2011, the new Cayenne Turbo S E-Hybrid and the Cayenne Turbo S E-Hybrid Coupe have been announced. The latest version of this Porsche flagship plug-in SUV combines a 14.1-kilowatt-hour battery and 134-horsepower electric motor with a 4.0-liter twin-turbocharged V8 engine found in the traditional gas-powered Cayenne Turbo. The electric motor is located between the V8 engine and its standard eight-speed transmission. The maximum system torque of 663 lb-ft of torque (900 Nm) is available from just above idle speed. Cayenne Turbo S E-Hybrid accelerates 0-62 mph(0 – 100 km/h) in 3.8 seconds and where possible can reach a top speed of 183 mph(243 km/h). This exceptional performance goes together with a high level of efficiency, the Cayenne Turbo S E-Hybrid and Turbo S E-Hybrid Coupé can drive for up to 25 miles with zero local emissions. The WLTP weighted Combined fuel economy is 52.3 – 58.9mpg (3.7–3.9 l/100 km).
In addition to the two top models, Porsche has included the new Cayenne E-Hybrid Coupé with overall power of 455 horsepower (340 kW), 516 lb-ft(700 Nm) of torque, and an electric range of up to 22 miles (43 kilometers). The Cayenne E-Hybrid sister model, updated for the new model year and now featuring a gasoline particulate filter, is also available to order once again. Speeds of up to 83 mph (135 km/h) with just electric power. Like all Porsche plug-in hybrids, the new Cayenne is also one of the most sporting SUVs in the premium segment – because of its hybrid powertrain. In the Cayenne Turbo S E-Hybrid models, the electric motor has been put between the V8 engine and the eight-speed Tiptronic S transmission.
Both motors are interconnected via a clutch, called Electric Clutch Actuator (ECA). In E-Power driving mode, the electric motor can, on its own, propel the vehicle or it can be used in the other modes for an additional power boost. Selection of modes can be applied via the Sport Chrono Package (Hybrid Auto, Sport and Sport Plus). Porsche has taken this boost from the 918 Spyder super sports car. The lithium-ion battery is installed beneath the load space floor and has a capacity of 14.1 kWh. The high-voltage battery can be fully charged in 2.4 hours with the standard 7.2 kW onboard AC charger when using an appropriate industrial socket connection. The charging process takes six hours from a conventional domestic socket. Charging can also be scheduled via Porsche Communication Management (PCM) or the Porsche Connect app (for smartphones and Apple® Watch).
The Cayenne Turbo S E-Hybrid and the Cayenne Turbo S E-Hybrid Coupé come with extensive standard equipment that includes the Porsche Dynamic Chassis Control (PDCC) electric roll stabilisation system, Porsche Torque Vectoring Plus (PTV Plus) rear axle limited slip differential, the Porsche Ceramic Composite Brake (PCCB) high-performance braking system, 21-inch alloys including wheel arch extensions in body colour and the Sport Chrono Package. The adaptive three-chamber air suspension, including Porsche Active Suspension Management (PASM), ensures a broad spectrum of characteristically responsive Porsche driving dynamics and a comfortable ride. Lightweight alloy wheels of up to 22-inch diameter and rear-axle steering are also available as optional extras.
