Porsche Cayenne E-Hybrid Powertrain

Newest Porsche PHEV Powertrain

A 3.0L mono-turbo V6 and electric motor combine to give the Porsche Cayenne E-Hybrid 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 rocket 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. A new Tiptronic S transmission offers significantly faster, smoother, and more comfortable shifts. Standard Porsche Traction Management (PTM) delivers clear benefits in terms of driving dynamics, agility, traction control and off-road capabilities. Standard Porsche Active Suspension Management (PASM) provides confidence across any road surface.

Porsche Cayenne E-Hybrid Plug-In Charging

Battery Charging & Range

Housed in the rear of the chassis beneath the load floor, the Cayenne E-Hybrid stores its electric power inside of a 17.9 kWh battery pack. On pure electric power, the Cayenne E-Hybrid can travel up to 83 miles per hour. Using a 230-volt, 32 amp connection and the optional 7.2 kW onboard charger, it is possible to recharge a fully depleted battery in only 3 hours. You’re also able to control and monitor the charging process via Porsche Communication Management (PCM) or remotely when using the Porsche Connect app.

Interior & Exterior Enhancements

Unique enhancements 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 distinctive 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 the first time, Porsche will offer a head-up display. This customizable, full-color display places vital information such as driving speed, engine speed, driving mode, and navigation information directly within the driver’s line of sight.
