Tax break approved for 2011 Porsche Cayenne S Hybrid

Article by Christian A., on December 8, 2010

Porsche’s 2011 Cayenne S Hybrid has been named as a Qualified Hybrid Motor Vehicle, making it eligible for the Alternative Motor Vehicle Tax Credit.

Porsche’s first production hybrid, the Cayenne S Hybrid is able to sprint from a standstill to 60 mph (97 km/h) in 6.1 seconds and it has a top speed of 150 mph (241 km/h), while offering 20/24 mpg US (city/highway). It has a base price before federal tax credit of $67,700, excluding destination charges.

Those who have bought a new Cayenne S Hybrid sport utility vehicle before the end of 2010 may be eligible for a one-time tax credit of up to US$1,800.

This luxury SUV is likely to appeal to those who are looking for more environmentally-friendly cars that remain to be flashy and powerful. The "S" badge on the Cayenne S Hybrid doesn’t mean that a V8 is what’s used to power this SUV, which weighs 4,938 lbs (2,239 kg).

Rather, the 2011 Cayenne S Hybrid is equipped with a highly sophisticated parallel full hybrid drivetrain that Porsche developed.

It consists of a supercharged V6 and an electric motor. The SUV features a combined power output of 380hp, very close to what the 400hp that the V8 delivers. Because the SUV uses a unique 'sailing mode' and features many other technical improvements, fuel economy is even better than what a V6 powered Cayenne offers.
