Porsche Cayenne and Cayenne Coupé Become Most Powerful SUVs On the Market

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.

In addition to two Turbo S flagships, the plug-in hybrid lineup also includes the less potent Cayenne E-Hybrid and Cayenne E-Hybrid Coupé, with a power output of 462 hp.

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).

For comparison: the latest BMW X6 M Competition has as a 625-hp engine, the Mercedes-Benz G63 AMG develops 585 hp.
