Porsche Cayenne E-Hybrid Performance

Porsche PHEV Powertrain

A 3.0L mono-turbo V6 and electric motor work in tandem to provide the Porsche Cayenne E-Hybrid with a total system output of 455 horsepower from 5,250 to 6,400 RPM and 516 lb-ft of torque from 1,000 to 3,750 RPM. It can accelerate from 0 to 60 in just 4.7 seconds (an improvement of -0.7 seconds vs. the previous generation) on its way to a top speed of 157 MPH. An advanced Tiptronic S transmission delivers significantly faster, smoother, and more comfortable shifts. Standard Porsche Traction Management (PTM) offers clear benefits in terms of driving dynamics, agility, traction control and off-road capabilities. Standard Porsche Active Suspension Management (PASM) additional confidence across any type of road surface.

Battery Range & Charging

Positioned in the rear of the chassis underneath the load floor, the Cayenne E-Hybrid houses its electric power inside of a 1.4 kWh battery pack. Using solely electric power, the Cayenne E-Hybrid has the ability to travel at speeds up to 83 miles per hour. Using a 230-volt, 32 amp connection and the optional 7.2 kW onboard charger, it’s able to recharge a fully drained battery in just 2.3 hours. You’re also able to control and monitor the charging process via Porsche Communication Management (PCM) or remotely by using the Porsche Connect app.

Porsche Cayenne E-Hybrid Interior

Interior & Exterior Design Cues

Stylish design accents found on the exterior of the Porsche Cayenne E-Hybrid include Acid Green brake calipers and matching outlines around all of the badges. Mirroring these unique hybrid accents on the interior, the cabin features Acid Green needles on the Sport Chrono dial and the tachometer as well as hybrid-specific displays in the gauge cluster and within the PCM screen. For monitoring critical drive information, Porsche Cayenne E-Hybrid variants offer a head-up display. This customizable, full-color display places essential information such as driving speed, engine speed, driving mode, and navigation information directly within the driver’s line of sight.
