Porsche Panamera S E-Hybrid


Recommended Posts

Porsche claims they have an entrant in the exclusive (and not very numerous) emotionally-stirring green vehicles club, with their Panamera S E-Hybrid, a parallel plug-in hybrid variant of their sports saloon(or hatchback, if you prefer), employing the use of both a 316hp V6 petrol engine and a 94hp electric motor.

Now, aside from all of the clear benefits the system exhibits in the standard lab testing procedures used to calculate the claimed figures, which in this case are quite impressive, at 3.1 l/100km (75.8 mpg US) fuel economy when using both petrol and electric motors, Porsche says that the performance boost brought about by the extra electric power also makes a difference in the level of driver involvement.

It is honestly strange to watch an official Porsche video, in German, and hear the man talk about hybrids, a 36 km all-electric range, emotions and performance all in the same phrase.
