At the Paris Auto Show, the "Mondial de l'Automobile", Porsche introduced the plugin hybrid model of its next generation four-seat luxury saloon, called Panamera 4 E-Hybrid, boasting a total power output of 462 hp.


Compared to its predecessor, the Panamera S E-Hybrid, the upgraded version now comes with new, improved lithium-ion cells that enable around 50 purely electric kilometers in the New European Driving Cycle (NEDC) – instead of previous 36. According to NEDC for plug-in hybrid models, it delivers power and fuel consumption figures of 2.5 l/100 km and 15.9 kWh/100 km respectively, corresponding to CO2 emissions of 56 g/km.

Proving that 4 E-Hybrid is a sportscar among the luxury saloons is also the fact that the all-wheeler combines a 2.9-litre V6 biturbo engine (delivering 243 kW and 450 Nm) with an electric motor (delivering 100 kW and 400 Nm torque). Jointly they deliver a system power of 340 kW, helping the car achieve a maximum speed of 278 km/h. With a system torque of 700 Nm, the car is able to break the 100 km/h barrier in just 4.6 seconds.

Despite being so sporty, Panamera remains a luxurious saloon at heart, offering the driver as well as the passengers an abundance of comfort and relaxation, including a wide variety of little digital helpers (such as driving assistance and security systems) as well as various infotainment systems.
