Porsche is on a high voltage mission to incorporate hybrid and battery technologies across its lineup. If you thought the Cayenne was fast on gas, imagine a plug-in hybrid helping it along. That is what was revealed this morning, as the Porsche Cayenne Turbo S E-Hybrid is fast & efficient. Plug it in overnight, and you will have the ability to reach 83 mph on battery power alone. It packs a 14.1 kWh battery under the floor, and a 7.2 kW onboard charger.
If you need a quick charge, it is capable of handling 400 volts AC at 16 amps, the same protocol as its cousin: The Audi e-tron. High voltage charging takes 2.4 hours or six hours from your home 240v system. The genius here is integrating the electric motor inside the transmission. With a full charge you will have 676 horsepower and 663 lb-ft of torque. If you need to be silent, you can cruise on battery for 26 miles. Other standard features include active sway bars, air suspension, and electric Air Conditioning. You can have the car cool and ready to go using the Porsche Connect App.
The styling and interior upgrades aren’t limited to the V8 Hybrid, Porsche has also released a new V6 turbo Cayenne Coupe. It has 455 horsepower and 516 lb-ft of torque from a smooth & silent 3.0L V6. It can reach 60 mph with the SportChrono package. Both models get USB-C ports, wireless charging and the infotainment has been upgraded to support wireless Apple CarPlay.
