Porsche introduces plug-in hybrid Cayenne models with a high-performance V8

Porsche Adds Trio Of Hybrids To 2020 Cayenne Model Line

The Cayenne Turbo and Cayenne Turbo Coupe produce just 541hp.

The new Turbo S models generate a total of 670-horsepower and 663 lb-ft (899 Nm) of torque. Both variants combine a 4.0-liter twin-turbocharged V-8 with an electric motor for a blend of performance and efficiency. Both the regular SUV and the Coupe version have a 13.1 kWh lithium-ion battery, and they can each do 0-60 miles per hour in 3.6 seconds.

If all this is a little too rich for your blood, there's also a 2020 Cayenne E-Hybrid Coupe being announced today, too.

Pricing for the Cayenne Turbo S E-Hybrid is available from $288,000 before on-road costs, while the Cayenne Turbo S E-Hybrid Coupé starts at $292,700 before on-roads (noting that both sport the same powertrain, as well as acceleration and top speed).

Yesterday, Porsche revealed that the fastest Cayennes in the segment - the Turbo S and Turbo S Coupe - have been outperformed by two newly launched hybrid models: The Cayenne Turbo S E-Hybrid and the Cayenne E-Hybrid Coupe.

The electric motor is powered by a 14.1 kWh lithium-ion battery and is sandwiched between the V8 engine and an eight-speed automatic transmission. Alone, it's good for 541 horsepower, but then the Cayenne engineers strap on a 134 horsepower electric motor.

The Sport Chrono Package comes standard on each of the three, headlining the list of additional standard kit.

Technical equipment included as standard includes an electric roll stabilisation system, ceramic brakes, 21-inch lightweight alloy wheels and air suspension. Other highlights include 18-way power adjustable adaptive sport seats, Porsche torque vectoring plus and Porsche dynamic chassis control. It puts out a net 455 horsepower and 516 pound-feet of torque, enough to shove the vehicle to 60 miles per hour in 4.7 seconds before topping out at 157 mph.

The data look much better when charging: While many plug-in hybrids do not achieve more than 3.7 kW charging power, the AC onboard charger in the Cayenne delivers up to 7.2 kW. Top track speed for this model is 157 miles per hour.

The Cayenne Turbo S E-Hybrid gets the active roof spoiler from the Cayenne Turbo, while the Cayenne Turbo S E-Hybrid Coupe has a fixed spoiler above the rear window and an adaptive spoiler below it.

Porsche Australia includes lane change assist, comfort access, 4-zone climate control, digital radio, side airbags in the rear, privacy glazing and ambient lighting all as standard, while the "wagon" body gets a panoramic sunroof and vented seats, and the Coupe scores 22-inch RS Spyder Design wheels.
