Porsche’s walk toward electrification will proceed one year from now with the arrival of the new 2019 Cayenne E-Hybrid. It’s the primary gas electric variation of the third-generation Cayenne yet it positively won’t be the last.
The Stuttgart-based organization began with a 3.0-liter V6 engine turbocharged to make 335 horsepower and 332 pound-feet of torque. It unites with an electric engine that includes 134 hp and 295 lb-ft. of contort to the blend. The framework’s aggregate yield checks in at 455 hp from 5,250 to 6,400 rpm and a heavy 516 lb-ft. of torque accessible in the vicinity of 1,000 and 3,750 rpm. To include setting, those figures put it between the S and the Turbo models in the Cayenne hierarchy.
An eight-speed programmed transmission exchanges the hybrid framework’s yield to each of the four wheels. Porsche’s performance oriented Sport Chrono bundle comes standard on the hybrid Cayenne, as does the brand’s dynamic suspension administration innovation. The full air suspension joins the rundown of choices.
The run from zero to 60 mph takes 4.7 seconds, seven-tenths speedier than the active E-Hybrid. In case you’re on a race track, or in case you’re cruising on an unlimited piece of Germany’s Autobahn, the Cayenne will continue going until the point when the speedometer shows 157 mph. It’s not about execution, however. We should talk volts.
The electric engine sources power from a 14.1kWh lithium-particle battery pack introduced under the storage compartment floor. We presume it gobbles up a tad of trunk space — that is the situation in the mechanically comparable Panamera E-Hybrid — however Porsche hasn’t discharged cargo limit figures yet. The trafe off is that the battery stores enough juice to control the Cayenne all alone for around 27 miles when tried on the European cycle. It can reach 83 mph without consuming a drop of gas.
