The Paris Motor Show will see Porsche unveil the latest model in the Panamera line-up: the Panamera 4 E-Hybrid with controlled all-wheel drive and an electric range of 50 kilometres. The plug-in hybrid generates 462 hp (340 kW) and fuel consumption figures of 2.5 l/100 km in the New European Driving Cycle (NEDC), corresponding to CO2 emissions of 56 g/km. Like all new Panamera models, the latest reveal represents a fusion of dynamic sports car performance and ultimate drive comfort to form a Gran Turismo concept offering a globally unique combination.
The new Porsche plug-in hybrid always starts in purely electric mode and continues as a zero-emission vehicle up to a range of 50 kilometres and a maximum speed of 140 km/h. Despite this increased efficiency, there’s no compromise in performance with the Panamera 4 E-Hybrid remaining a true sports car among luxury saloons. The all-wheel Porsche achieves a top speed of 278 km/h and delivers instantaneous system torque of 700 Nm from a standstill. The four-door hybrid sports car breaks the 100 km/h barrier in just 4.6 seconds.
Together with the performance characteristics of the new 2.9-litre V6 biturbo engine (330 hp (243 kW), 450 Nm), the car generates an impressive boost based on electric motor and turbochargers.
A highlight of the second-generation Panamera is the newly designed display and control concept in the form of the standard Porsche Advanced Cockpit with touch-sensitive panels and individually configurable displays. A 12.3-inch touchscreen functions as a central PCM control and display unit. The driver can access various items of hybrid-specific information both here on the dash and in the instrument cluster. A boost assistant display shows the energy available for boosting, while the hybrid assistant helps the driver regulate electrical drive power.
The Panamera 4 E-Hybrid can be ordered now, with first units expected mid of next year. The new Panamera 4 E-Hybrid has a basic retail price of AED 457,400.
