About the new Cayenne S E-Hybrid
The Cayenne S E-Hybrid is a true world first, even outside the Porsche model range: it is the first plug-in hybrid in the premium SUV segment and it sets standards among luxury all-wheel-drive vehicles. Its high-voltage battery enables it to be charged both at a mains supply and during the journey. Distinctive features of the Cayenne S E-Hybrid are the brake callipers in acid green and appropriate emblems. The needles of the cockpit instruments also feature this
Very clear technical advances have been made compared with the previous Cayenne S Hybrid: the Cayenne S E-Hybrid has a lithium-ion drive battery that now has energy content of 10.8 kWh (previously: 1.7 kWh, from a nickel-metal-hydride battery), which enables pure electric driving for 18 to 36 kilometres, depending on the driving style and the topography. This enables most everyday journeys to be made without consuming any fuel or producing any local emissions. The power output of the electric motor has more than doubled – from34 kW to 70 kW (95 hp). The overall fuel consumption is now 3.4 l/100 km instead of the previous 8.2 l/100 km, corresponding to CO2 emissions of 79 g/km. The old model emitted 193 g/km.
