Porsche Adds Trio Of Hybrids To 2020 Cayenne Model Line

Porsche Adds Trio Of Hybrids To 2020 Cayenne Model Line

As the name suggests, the SUVs inherit their powertrains from the Panamera Turbo S E-Hybrid, in this case a 4.0 litre twin-turbocharged V8 that develops 550 PS and 770 Nm of torque.

Yesterday, Porsche revealed that the fastest Cayennes in the segment - the Turbo S and Turbo S Coupe - have been outperformed by two newly launched hybrid models: The Cayenne Turbo S E-Hybrid and the Cayenne E-Hybrid Coupe. All of these features except PTV+ are optionally available on the V6-powered Cayenne E-Hybrid Coupe.

Charging time from a standard domestic 10 amp household socket takes six hours, or around 2.5 hours if using the 7.2 kW onboard AC charger with a 400-volt connection and a 16-amp fuse. This Turbo is every bit as well-mannered as the Cayenne S we've touted as the equivalent of a luxury sports sedan, only packing still more power and grip when we dialed all the electronics to red-mist mode. Porsche Traction Management (PTM) all-wheel drive is standard, as is the Sport Chrono Package.

The Cayenne Turbo S E-Hybrid and the Cayenne Turbo S E-Hybrid Coupé both ship standard with items such as the firm's dynamic chassis control, electric roll stabilisation, adaptive three-chamber air suspension, torque vectoring plus, a rear-axle differential lock, ceramic composite brakes and 21-inch lightweight alloy wheels.

The coupé, which is a good $4,000+ dearer than the wagon, comes with some slinky extras, including adaptive rear spoiler, panoramic glass roof (a carbon roof is optional), and "a rear seat bench with the characteristics of two individual seats". Thanks to the standard Sport Chrono Package, the 0-60 miles per hour sprint happens in 4.7 seconds.

Given the Coupe E-Hybrid shares its battery pack with its Turbo S E-Hybrid stablemates, we expect the model to possess an all-electric driving range of around 20 miles before switching over to its gasoline-electric Hybrid Auto drive mode. Added to this is a top speed of 295km/h, with the sole electric portion of the vehicles delivering 135km/h of speed alone.

If all this is a little too rich for your blood, there's also a 2020 Cayenne E-Hybrid Coupe being announced today, too.

Eight-way Sport Seats offer significant side and thigh bolstering, further emphasizing the sporty intent of the Cayenne E-Hybrid Coupe. That's because when these go on sale in the United States in Q1 2020, they will officially become the most powerful Cayenne models produced to date.
