Porsche Cayenne S E-Hybrid achieves astounding fuel economy on its first run

 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.
