A 3.0-litre V6 engine (340hp) combines with an electric motor (136hp) to generate total system power of 462hp. The maximum torque of 700nm is available from just above idling speed; the boost strategy matches that of the 918 Spyder supercar. The plug-in hybrid drive of the Cayenne enables acceleration from 0-100km/h in 5.0 seconds and a maximum speed of 250km/h. Where possible, the new Cayenne E-Hybrid can cover a distance of up to 43 kilometres and reach a speed of 133km/h on electricity alone. The average consumption in the New European Drive Cycle (NEDC), depending on the tyre specification, is as low as 3.39L/100km (83.1mpg) and 20.9-20.6 kWh/100 km of electricity.
Alongside the launch of the Cayenne E-Hybrid, Porsche is expanding the range of comfort and assistance systems for the entire Cayenne series with additional options such as a new head-up display, massage seats and 22-inch diameter alloy wheels (UK & Ireland market availability to be confirmed).
