Porsche offers a new plug-in hybrid

Porsche has announced something that is a first for the sports car company and that first is a plug-in hybrid. Porsche has offer the hybrid version of its Panamera four-door car in the past and the new plug-in hybrid will replace that car. The plug-in hybrid gets a more powerful 95 hp electric motor and a larger 9.4 kWh lithium-ion battery pack.

The total power for the new Panamera S E-Hybrid is 416 hp. The car can completely charge its battery pack in 2.5 hours when connected to a 240 V power source. The Porsche can also drive for 20 miles on electricity alone. Right now, it's unclear exactly how fuel-efficient E-Hybrid will be, EPA estimates are unavailable.

In addition to the new hybrid, Porsche has also added a pair of extended wheelbase Panameras to the lineup. These cars have 5.9-inches of additional rear legroom and are called Executive. The Executive version will be available with the standard engine or in turbo form.

Oct 31 2014 11:10am CDT | Source: Car and Driver

If anyone predicted Porsche would be one of the brands leading the charge on plug-in hybrids back when Chevrolet launched the Volt in 2010—just as Porsche was debuting its first-ever production hybrid with the Cayenne—that person should be dealing futures on Wall Street. By replacing that SUV with this 2015 Cayenne S E-Hybrid plug-in, Porsche now has three plug-ins, more than any other carmaker. Of course, one of those three is the 918 Spyder, which isn’t exactly mainst ...

We at Car Articles are particularly taken with the styling. It is bold without being over the top and the inclusion of standard over gullwing doors is again a winner for us. The powerplant (a V8 twin turbocharged 4 litre) is particularly impressive. At la ...
