Porsche Cayenne S E-Hybrid The Porsche Cayenne S E-Hybrid was put to its first trial run in late October. The results accomplished were astonishing to say the least: Over a total distance of more than 4,200 kilometers, the Cayenne S E-Hybrid consumed just 5.6 l/100 km. The best result was even as low as 1.4 l/100 km, thus two l/100 km below the NEDC fuel consumption level of 3.4 l/100 km. In output figures, the Cayenne S E-Hybrid provides 416 hp, with a century sprint mark at 5.9 seconds and a top speed of 243 km/h.

In addition to the Cayenne S E-Hybrid, the Panamera S E-Hybrid was also driven along the same routes. Thanks to its weight advantage, rear-wheel drive and lower wind resistance, the plug-in hybrid variant of Porsche’s grand tourer also impressed with average fuel consumption of 5.4 l/100 km.

Porsche Cayenne S E-Hybrid and Panamera S E-Hybrid do fuel economy runs at Frankfurt am Main

Both plug-in hybrids were driven along the routes around Frankfurt am Main, including sections through villages, along country roads and on motorways; in part with no speed limit. It was also confirmed on these different routes of between 36 and 56 kms that the all-electric range of 36 kms with fuel consumption of 0.0 l/100 km and zero local emissions is achievable in practice, not just in the NEDC on a test bench.

Along with the Super Sports 918 Spyder, Porsche becomes the first performance car manufacturer with three plug-in variants in its fantastic line-up.

The Porsche Cayenne S E-Hybrid has already started its sales cycle in October, while sales of the Panamera S E-Hybrid has been ongoing since August last year.
