Porsche continues to pursue its E-Performance strategy. The Panamera 4S E-Hybrid is a new addition to the range of plug-in hybrids. Compared with the previous hybrid models, the all-electric range has been boosted by up to 30 per cent.
The intelligent combination of the 100 kW (136 PS) electric motor integrated into the eight-speed dual-clutch PDK transmission and the 2.9-litre V6 biturbo engine with 324 kW (440 PS) generates a system output of 412 kW (560 PS) and a maximum system torque of 750 Nm.
The performance figures are therefore very impressive: combined with the standard Sport Chrono Package, the sprint from 0 – 100 km/h is covered in 3.7 seconds. The top speed is 298 km/h. The gross battery capacity has been increased from 14.1 to 17.9 kWh compared with the previous hybrid models using optimised cells and the driving modes have been optimised for even more efficient energy utilisation.
The 4S E-Hybrid has an all-electric range of up to 54 km in accordance with WLTP EAER City (NEDC: up to 64 km).
In addition to the sports saloon, the new Panamera models can also be ordered as Sport Turismo or Executive with lengthened wheelbase, depending on the drive system.
