Electric performance

Porsche’s E-Hybrid cars are not only better for the environment, they also deliver driving excitement and luxurious interiors


From the sleek and elegant Porsche Panamera to the versatile Cayenne, the Porsche E-Performance concept continues to explore groundbreaking technologies, blending classic Porsche driver enjoyment with low carbon emissions and low fuel consumption.

In fact, by 2022, Porsche will have invested more than six billion euros in e-mobility, setting the ground for sustainable growth into the future. Environmental sustainability and driver enjoyment are not mutually exclusive for Porsche, and the brand’s E-Hybrid performance cars combine the traditional horsepower of an internal combustion engine with the immediate torque output and energy efficiency of an electric motor for scintillating performance.

Meet the Porsche Panamera 4 E-Hybrid and Cayenne E-Hybrid, two dynamic cars from the Porsche’s current E-Hybrid range.

They epitomise the Porsche E-Performance ethos, with intelligent all-wheel drive and and a power output of 462hp. Highlighted by “e-hybrid” badging on the flanks with Acid Green borders, these plug-in hybrids are at the leading edge of integrated electric mobility. Conventional refuelling can be supplemented by electrical recharging with the Porsche Mobile Charger, available as standard equipment for all Porsche E-Hybrids.

The Panamera range of the E-Hybrid family has a 14kWh battery pack, while the Cayenne E-Hybrid is equipped with a 14.1kWh battery pack. They are part of the powertrain system delivering energy to a 136hp electric motor in each car. A Porsche E-Hybrid vehicle has a full-electric range of between 42 to 51km*. When combined with the power from the turbocharged internal combustion engine, the complete drive system produces a powerful torque output of 700Nm, for massively powerful acceleration at any speed.

Whether you are looking for a luxurious, powerful and sporty saloon or a versatile SUV that you can drive nearly anywhere in comfort, Porsche’s E-Hybrids have you covered, and they deliver environmentally sustainable motoring enjoyment too.

It can run on electric power alone up to speeds of 140km/h and up to a maximum distance of 51km, for a true zero-emissions driving experience. Driver enjoyment is amplified with a hybrid-specific mode switch and Sport Response button on the steering wheel.
