Porsche Exclusive showed us today that even hybrid models can be enhanced in order to look just like the more powerful models. As a result, the brand new Cayenne S E-Hybrid received the Meteor Grey metallic exterior colour but also a new Sport Design package with side sills, Bi-Xenon headlights featuring a black background and fitted with the Porsche Dynamic Light System (PDLS), as well as new wheel arch extensions and 21-inch Sport Edition wheels painted in high-gloss black.
At the rear, we find smoked LED taillights with adaptive brake lights and black sports tailpipes. The interior package includes decorative stitching, painted PCM surround and air vent slats, an aluminum Tiptronic S gear selector and a centre console armrest with model logo.
The design is completed by illuminated door sill guards made out of carbon fiber as well as personalized floor mats and by the carbon fiber grab handles.
Under the hood, we find a supercharged 3.0-liter V6 engine that produces 333 hp (245 kW) and an electric motor that delivers 95 hp (70 kW). The hybrid system develops a total output of 416 hp (306 kW) at 5,500 rpm and 590 Nm of torque from 1,250 to 4,000 rpm.
The Cayenne S E-Hybrid is able to accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 5.9 seconds, while top speed is 243 km/h or 151 mph. Despite the impressive performances, the SUV’s combined fuel consumption is 3.4 l/100 km, with CO2 emissions of 79 g/km.
Using just the energy from the lithium-ion traction battery, the Cayenne S e-Hybrid offers a range of 18 to 36 km (11 to 22 miles) and a top speed of 125 km/h or 77 mph.
