At the 2016 Paris Motor Show, a new Porsche Panamera will be introduced. This will be the line’s fourth model and will be known as the Panamera 4 E-Hybrid. It will feature controlled all-wheel drive, produce 340kW (462hp) of output and achieve up to 50 km of electric range, thanks to its high fuel efficiency of 2.5L/100km under the New European Driving Cycle (NEDC) for plug-in hybrids, which results in a low 56 g/km CO2 emission figure. Porsche has begun taking orders for the Panamera 4 E-Hybrid. Its base price in Germany is EUR 107,553 including VAT.
Porsche’s hybrids are remarkably noted for implementing sustainable technology without sacrificing performance, as illustrated by the triumph of the 919 Hybrid in the 2015 and 2016 24 Hours of Le Mans races. It thus comes as no surprise that the Panamera 4 E-Hybrid was developed under the same philosophy.
When started, the new 2017 Panamera plug-in hybrid operates exclusively in zero-emission electric mode, yet it reaches a speed of 140 km/h for up to 50 kilometres.
But while the four-door all-wheel drive Panamera is a luxury saloon, it performs like a true sportscar, with a 278 km/h maximum speed and a 0-100 km/h acceleration time of merely 4.6 seconds. It generates 700 Nm of torque from stationary with no hesitation, which is delivered to all wheels. Additionally, its standard three-chamber air suspension constantly maintains an ideal balance between comfort and performance.
