The Panamera S E-Hybrid
is a systematically advanced development of the parallel full hybrid,
which Porsche introduced to the market as a pioneer in the field. With
416 hp (306 kW) of system power, acceleration from a standstill to 100
km/h in 5.5 seconds and a top speed of 270 km/h, it is a Porsche Gran
Turismo through and through. Its special fascination comes from its
unique efficiency and its ability to drive considerable distances in
all-electric mode. In the NEDC, the Panamera S E-Hybrid consumes 3.1
l/100 km, which equates to 71 g/km CO2 emissions.
The electric driving
range of the Panamera S E-Hybrid was determined to be 36 kilometres in
the NEDC, and its top speed in electric driving is an unrivalled 135
km/h. The electricity is stored in a newly developed lithium-ion battery
with a 9.4 kWh energy capacity. Depending on the type of external
electrical supply, the battery may be fully charged within as little as
a few hours, and the battery is recharged by electrical system
recuperation while driving. The forward-looking concept of the Panamera
S E Hybrid also includes a completely new range of convenience functions
that can also be activated and accessed by a smartphone app.
In a second world
premiere, Porsche President and CEO Matthias Müller presented the
Executive models of the Panamera which have a 15 centimetre longer
wheelbase, and as a result more leg space behind the front seats.
Panamera 4S Executive and Panamera Turbo Executive offer a very
extensive set of features, and the standard rear seats already offer
exceptional comfort. All Executive models have the innovative Panamera
air suspension, which combines excellent ride comfort with typical
Porsche handling properties. Never before have luxury and comfort been
so closely associated with such sporty driving performance.
step towards increasing performance and efficiency is the completely
reengineered V6 bi-turbo engine with three litres of engine
displacement, which is replacing the previous V8 engine of Panamera S
and Panamera 4S in the new Gran Turismo. The engine’s key parameters are
indicators of progress: 20 hp more power and 20 Newton metres more
torque, but up to 18 per cent improved fuel economy compared to the V8
engine in the previous model.
