The Winning Edge: New Cayenne now available as a plug-in hybrid

Porsche is expanding its range of hybrid models with the introduction of the new Cayenne E-Hybrid, which combines the best driving dynamics in its class with maximum efficiency. Alongside the launch of the Cayenne E-Hybrid, Porsche is expanding its range of comfort and assistance systems for the entire Cayenne series with additional options such as the new head-up display, massage seats and 22-inch light metal wheels.

A New Concept

The next stage in Porsche’s journey towards e-mobility is the Cayenne E-Hybrid. While the performance of the combustion engine moderately improves on its predecessor by 7 hp (5 kW) to 340 hp (250 kW), the performance of the electric engine is now over 43 per cent higher at 136 hp (100 kW), therefore generating a combined 462 hp (340 kW) output. The boost strategy derived from the 918 Spyder supercar is a new addition.

New hybrid module and rapid switching

Porsche has redesigned the Cayenne E-Hybrid’s drive train. The hybrid module consists of a highly-integrated combination of electric engine and separating clutch. The transmission acquires the new Tiptronic S, newly developed for the entire Cayenne range with eight speeds.

Active hang-on all-wheel drive

With Porsche Traction Management (PTM), the Cayenne E-Hybrid has an active hang-on all-wheel drive with an electronically regulated, map-controlled multiplate clutch. With its broad range of torque distribution, the system offers clear benefits in terms of driving dynamics, agility, traction control and off-road capabilities.

New options: head-up display and 22-inch light metal wheels

With the launch of the Cayenne E-Hybrid, Porsche is expanding its range of assistance systems and optional features for the entire series with a variety of innovations. For the first time, head-up display is available in a Porsche. It projects all the relevant driving information directly into the driver’s line of vision. Other new features now available in the Cayenne include massage seats, a heated windscreen and 22-inch light metal wheels.
