After we saw the first pictures of the new generation Panamera in July, now its time to be introduced to another special car in the Panamera range. It is the new generation of the hybrid version, simply called Porsche Panamera 4 E-Hybrid.

The fourth model in the Panamera range has all wheel drive, as the name suggests, and an electric range of 50 kilometres. The vehicle generates 462 hp and delivers fuel consumption figures of 2.5 l/100 km. That corresponds to CO2 emissions of 56 g/km. 

The new Porsche plug-in hybrid always starts in purely electric mode and drives without generating any local emissions within a range of 50 kilometres and a maximum speed of 140 km/h. 

Also, the all-wheel Porsche achieves a top speed of 278 km/h and delivers a system torque of 700 Nm from stationary. The four-door hybrid sports car breaks the 100 km/h barrier in just 4.6 seconds. The torque is transferred to all four wheels and the standard three-chamber air suspension ensures an optimum balance between comfort and dynamism.

The new Panamera 4 E-Hybrid features a hybrid strategy never before seen in this segment – a strategy based on the 918 Spyder.

The power of the Panamera electric motor is 100 kW or 136 hp and 400 Nm torque.
Like with the 918 Spyder, the electric motor is available to deliver additional power at all times. This, together with the new 2.9-litre V6 biturbo engine  that delivers 330 hp and 450 Nm).

Together with the V6 petrol engine decoupler, the electric motor heralds the new generation of the Porsche hybrid module. In contrast to the electro-hydraulic system of the predecessor model, the decoupler on the new Panamera is actuated electromechanically by an electric clutch actuator (ECA), resulting in  shorter response times. A new Porsche eight-speed Doppelkupplung (PDK) transmission is used to transmit the power to the all-wheel drive. This transmission replaces the eight-speed automatic torque converter transmission on the predecessor model.

The electric motor is supplied with power via a liquid-cooled lithium-ion battery integrated under the luggage compartment floor. It has been increased from 9.4 to 14.1 kWh but it weights the same. The high-voltage battery takes just 5.8 hours to fully charge via a 230-V, 10-A connection. If the driver chooses to use the optional 7.2 kW on-board charger and a 230-V, 32-A connection instead of the standard 3.6-kW charger on the Panamera, the battery fully charges in just 3.6 hours. 

The Panamera 4 E-Hybrid is available to order now, with prices starting at EUR 107,553 including VAT in Germany.
