2017 Panamera Turbo S E-Hybrid
As a rule, a hybrid vehicle is known as a combination of an electric motor and the smallest gasoline engine available. This is also available as a Porsche Panamera 4 E-Hybrid with V-6, 76,500 euros cheaper. Contrary
usual, both hybrids are only available as all-wheel drive versions.
As executive models already, 15 centimeters longer, probably mainly for the benefit of seating comfort at the back, also identified on the outside by silver air inlets. Normally extras, but here as standard adaptive air
suspension, rear side airbags, sun blinds and special comfort in the seats and headrests.
The Panamera Turbo S E-Hybrid Executive (+15,000 euros) also has rear-axle steering, parking assistant, self-closing doors and 4-zone air conditioning. The name is too long even without 'Executive', so it appears
on the rear and side.
The battery, which is responsible for almost 100 liters of lost luggage space at the rear, obviously only produces 14 kWh gross. 11.2 kWh (80 percent) would then be usable and with a naturally relatively high
at least 16.2 kWh per 100 km, according to the factory information, not even the calculated almost 70 km, but only 25 to 50 km of electric range remain.
But what else would you expect from a hybrid with a two-part extendable rear wing? Of course, the electric drive does not drive an axle alone in the all-wheel drive, but is part of the automatic transmission. It is all the
incomprehensible that there is no hybrid version with only rear-wheel drive, at least in the weaker version.
Although the Turbo S E-Hybrid is considered well-equipped, its surcharge list is extremely long, here called 'individual offer'. After all, the ceramic brakes, which cost 9,000 euros, and the 21-inch wheels, which cost
euros, are standard, but further 70,000 euros are certainly possible. What's particularly annoying is the approximately 10,000 euros extra for the assistants and then the LED main headlights, which lack the matrix
From what has been mentioned so far, it is easy to see that Porsche was once again aiming for a superlative, namely building the most powerful hybrid sedan in the world. You can set the clock based on when
AMG and BMW follow suit.
