Porsche Panamera S Hybrid

Feb 16, 2011   |   #News

Porsche has revealed its new Panamera S Hybrid. It’s the sixth version of its sports saloon, which despite attracting some scepticism upon launch, has proved a huge success: after less than a year and a half on sale, 30,000 have found homes worldwide, over 1000 of those being in the UK. And this more environmentally-minded iteration should only serve to fuel those sales figures. The hybrid version of the Porsche Cayenne accounts for one fifth of the SUV’s registrations.

The rear-drive Panamera S Hybrid gets the same powertrain. It comprises a 329bhp 3.0-litre supercharged V6 petrol engine and a 46bhp electric motor, the latter hooked up to a nickel metal hydride battery, which is topped up by energy recuperated during braking and driving. 0-62mph takes 6.0sec, while the top speed is 168mph....

It packs a 29-kWh battery pack, which should give a solid 100 miles of low-CO2 uber-mobility per charge. All of its electro-tech is said to be sourced from its Volkswagen parent....
