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.
