2011 Porsche Cayenne S Hybrid makes its debut in China

Article by Christian Andrei, on December 28, 2010

Porsche has introduced the new Cayenne Hybrid at the Guangzhou Auto Show in China. But even if this model offers reduced emissions and improved mileage, it is not expected to be covered by a green subsidy from the Chinese government. A report by China Car Times said that pricing is estimated to start at $256,000.

However, the official details will probably be announced in early 2011. The Cayenne S features a supercharged 3.0l V6 internal combustion engine, mated to an electric motor. The two units can deliver a total power output of 380hp (333 hp from the internal combustion engine alone).

The two drive units in the Cayenne S Hybrid are linked by a decoupling clutch, while the V6 engine is partnered with a new eight-speed Tiptronic S automatic transmission.

Official data indicate that in the U.S., the Cayenne Hybrid has been rated at 21 mpg city and 25 mpg highway. However, it offers a terrific performance, including a 6.1-second acceleration time from a standstill to 62 mph.

In addition, the car is eligible for Federal Tax Credit, signifying that all those who choose to buy the Cayenne Hybrid before December 31 may get an incentive of up to $1,800. The base price before federal tax credit is $67,700, excluding destination charges.

Trim levels may vary depending on the market but the Cayenne is offered as standard with 18-inch wheels, automatic headlight activation, 2-zone automatic climate control, cruise control, adjustable rear seat bench and audio system with touchscreen color display.
