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.
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.
