Porsche has added another model to its Cayenne line-up – the Cayenne E-Hybrid – with a 3.0-litre V6 turbocharged engine combined with an electric motor and here’s five interesting facts of the latest electrified product from Stuttgart, Germany.
1. The Cayenne E-Hybrid makes a combined 462 hp with 700 Nm of torque. From standstill, it will hit the 100 km/h mark in just five seconds with its new 8-speed Tiptronic S transmission, before topping out at 253 km/h.
2. Its “boost strategy” derived from the 918 Spyder is a new addition; ensuring that the electric motor can be used with all driving modes for an additional performance boost with maximum torque.3. Its batteries, stored beneath the loading floor, now has 30% higher capacity. They can be fully charged in under eight hours with a 230V connection. With the optional 7.2 kilowatt on-board charger, the time is shortened to just over two hours.
4. On pure electricity, it can drive up to a distance of 44 km, at speeds of up to 135 km/h while fuel consumption is rated to be as low as 3.2L/100 km. In Sport and Sport Plus modes, all of the battery’s energy can be used for a boost. In Sport mode, the battery is charged just as much as is required for a new boost. In Sport Plus mode, the battery is recharged as quickly as possible.5. The new Cayenne E-Hybrid features a head-up display, the Porsche InnoDrive system with adaptive cruise control, 22-inch light metal wheels along with driving aids such as the standard Porsche Traction Management (PTM), Porsche Active Suspension Management (PASM) and the optional Porsche Dynamic Chassis Control (PDCC) roll stabilisation system.
