The Porsche Panamera E Hybrid PHEV: The Complete Guide

Porsche Panamera E Hybrid PHEV

Overview


Stuttgart based Porsche is known for high-performance cars and is currently owned by the Volkswagen Group. Porsche has always had a close relationship with the Volkswagen Group, because the iconic VW Beetle was designed by Ferdinand Porsche, the founder of Porsche. Apart from this, both VW and Porsche have collaborated on a number of platforms, to include, the Porsche Cayenne SUV. In 2010, Porsche launched the Cayenne S Hybrid and also developed an electric prototype of the Porsche Boxster, called the Boxster E (2011). The luxury automotive manufacturer currently has the following electric vehicles (EVs) in its portfolio:

The Porsche Panamera Plug-In Hybrid


The Porsche Panamera luxury hatchback was unveiled in 2009 at the Auto Shanghai International Automobile Show. Production began the same year in Germany and the Panamera continues to be manufactured in the country. The hybrid variant was launched in 2011 and the plug-in hybrid variant released in 2013. The PHEV was unveiled at the 2013 Shanghai Auto Show.

As one can expect, a Porsche never disappoints when it comes to quality and performance. The Panamera PHEV is no different. Given the instant torque from an electric engine, the plug-in electric car achieves 0-62 mph in 4.4 seconds for the entry level variant. The top level variant, the Turbo S E Hybrid Sport Turismo, achieves 0-62 mph in 3.2 seconds, with a top speed of 196 mph. But of course, luxury and performance from this famed marquee does not come cheap. Prices start from £84,610 for the 4 E Hybrid variant and increase up to £144,930 for the Turbo S E-Hybrid Sport Turismo.

The electric vehicle (EV) is without an iota of doubt, stunning in design, style, quality and performance. But it has its limitations in terms of interior space, to include the limited headroom for rear seat passengers. The plug-in electric vehicle (PHEV) is perfect for those drivers that want the performance and quality of a Porsche, but with better environmental credentials (tailpipe emissions: up to 57g/km). Though the PHEV has a zero-emission electric range up to 35 miles, based on driving style and driving conditions, the real world range could be closer to 25 miles.
