Porsche has introduced the Cayenne and Cayenne Coupé hybrid modifications, whose output reaches 680 hp.
Following the Panamera plug-in hybrid, Porsche has introduced the new Cayenne Turbo S E-Hybrid and Cayenne Turbo S E-Hybrid Coupé. Their powertrains produce about 680 hp, joining them to the most powerful SUVs in the modern car market.
Both have a 4.0-liter 550-hp V8 gasoline engine and a 136-hp electric motor mated with an eight-speed Tiptronic S automatic gearbox.
The maximum torque is 664 lb-ft (900 Nm). Acceleration from 0 to 62 mph (100 km/h) takes 3.8 seconds. The top speed is limited to 183 mph (295 km/h).
The Cayenne Turbo S E-Hybrid and the Turbo S E-Hybrid Coupé can cover up to 25 miles (40 km) on a single charge. The average NEDC-rated fuel consumption is 60-64 mpg (3.9-3.7 l/100 km). That is, the real figure is 20-30% more. However, it’s still little.
The electric motor in the new hybrid crossovers is located between the 8-cylinder engine and the Tiptronic S. The units are connected to each other through an electrical clutch. In a fully electric mode, the vehicle can accelerate to 84 mph (135 km/h).
