Porsche Cayenne hybrid models bring the power

Porsche Adds Trio Of Hybrids To 2020 Cayenne Model Line

Vehicle and Driver The range-topping model for the all-new 2019 Cayenne SUV, the 541-hp Turbo merely opens the door for even more outrageous variants in the pipeline. While the Turbo reigns as King Cayenne for this first model year of the all-new third-generation Porsche SUV, it really just establishes the baseline for even more absurdly powerful models to come in subsequent model years.

A 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8 engine making 541 horsepower (404 kW) combined with a 134-horsepower (100 kW) electric motor generate a total system output of 670 horsepower (550 kW) and 663 lb. -ft. of torque (900 Nm).

The standard Cayenne E-Hybrid Coupe brings up the rear, with a relatively modest 455hp from its 3.0-litre turbocharged V6 in combination with an electric motor.

All three new Cayenne derivatives feature plug-in power trains.

The Turbo S E-Hybrid is just one of three hybrid Cayennes revealed today, with the new Coupe variant also packing the same punch. Everything that comes standard on the Turbo hybrid models can be optioned onto the E-Hybrid Coupe save for torque vectoring.

The lithium-ion battery is installed underneath the loadspace floor and has a capacity of 14,1 kWh, with Porsche saying it can be fully charged within 2,4 hours with the standard 7,2 kW onboard AC charger when using a 400-volt connection with a 16-amp fuse. The dash to 60 miles per hour takes 4.7 seconds, and top speed is limited to 157 miles per hour.

For the United States market, the models will come nicely equipped with the Sport Chrono Package and ceramic composite brakes. Eighteen-way adaptive sport seats are standard, too, for a little extra comfort. Depending on the selected version, the Lightweight Sport Package saves up to 48 lbs.

Since the ICE & the hybrid powertrain have been borrowed from existing models, the Cayenne & Cayenne Coupe Turbo S E-Hybrid share the same equipment & specs as their siblings.

All Cayenne Turbo S E-Hybrid models are easily distinguishable by the acid green color around their badges and brake calipers. Rear-wheel steering and a sports-exhaust are also available as an option if you wish.

A series of drive modes have also been taken from the Porsche 918 Spyder hypercar, which can be used to either maximise performance or range. There are also Hybrid Auto, Sport, and Sport Plus modes, as well as E-Charge and E-Hold settings, the latter of which maintain the battery pack's state of charge or use the V8 engine to add juice on the go.

The Cayenne E-Hybrid Coupe gets eight-way seats, a fixed panoramic roof, and 20-inch Cayenne Design wheels.
