Porsche presents new plug-in hybrids

Dubai – Porsche celebrates the launch of its new Cayenne S E-Hybrid, with a world premiere at the Paris Motor Show scheduled for October 2. The world’s first plug-in hybrid in the premium SUV segment sets the standard among luxury all-wheel-drive vehicles and makes Porsche a market-leader in the production of plug-in hybrid cars. Together with the Panamera S E-Hybrid and the 918 Spyder, the Stuttgart-based sports car manufacturer is the only brand to offer three plug-in models.

Alongside the Cayenne S E-Hybrid, the company will also present model updates of the Cayenne S, Cayenne Turbo, Cayenne Diesel and Cayenne S Diesel in Paris. All new models feature increased efficiency, even more precise handling, streamlined design and an extensive list of standard equipment.

As a result of the brand’s advanced plug-in hybrid technology, the Cayenne S E-Hybrid has a fuel economy of only 3.4 litres per 100 kilometres and CO2 emissions of a mere 79 grams per kilometre, which are all impressive figures for an all-wheel-drive car. Global market reaction to models featuring the advanced hybrid drive concept has been positive. In the first eight months of 2014, the company delivered a total of 16,698 Panamera units, of which 1,513 units (9 per cent) were Panamera S E-Hybrid models.

The Cayenne S E-Hybrid will be unveiled to the world for the first time, alongside showcases of the Cayenne Diesel, Cayenne S Diesel, Cayenne S and the flagship Cayenne Turbo at a press conference during the Paris Motor Show, Hall 4, at 9.35 am (CEST), October 2.
