Getting where you want to be sooner – whether it’s your office or your holiday destination. More than likely, though, it’s the future.
Typically for Porsche, it begins in the garage. Or, to be more specific, at the vehicle charge port of the new Panamera S E-Hybrid – a parallel plug-in hybrid, and also the next major step in hybrid technology. The future begins now. With e-mobility. A total concept that combines a progressive drive system, a variety of charging capabilities, intelligent mobile online services and efficient performance.
The new lithium-ion-based high-voltage battery of the Panamera S E-Hybrid has more energy content than nickel metal hydride batteries and can be charged from an external source. On electric power alone, the Panamera S E- Hybrid has a range of up to 36 km in the NEDC and reaches a maximum speed of 135 km/h. That’s with an average fuel consumption of merely 3.1 l/100 km. However, reducing fuel consumption is just one of the goals that we are aiming to achieve with advanced hybrid technology. Everyday practicality and sporty driving pleasure are also top of our list.
There are innovations under the bonnet of the other members of the Panamera family, too. Like a brand new generation of engine in the Panamera S and Panamera 4S. Thanks to some intelligent downsizing, the 3.0-litre twin-turbo V6 engine produces more power output than the naturally aspirated engine of the previous generation – and delivers a lower rate of fuel consumption at the same time.
Porsche Doppelkupplung (PDK) is now fitted as standard in all models with a petrol engine. The power of the Panamera S E-Hybrid is transmitted to the road by the 8-speed Tiptronic S.
Prepped and ready for the future of the automobile and the digital age – Porsche Car Connect. Porsche Car Connect is a smartphone app that enables you to access various data relating to your car and control certain functions remotely. In conjunction with the comprehensive online services option, you can see all the important information about your Panamera whenever you wish – and not only when you’re behind the wheel.
The new, optional LED main headlights including Porsche Dynamic Light System Plus (PDLS Plus) help to ensure even better visibility. And with Lane Change Assist, the lane departure warning, speed limit display, adaptive cruise control including Porsche Active Safe (PAS), and Surround View, a wealth of new assistance systems is available to you. Systems to lower your adrenaline level – on the odd occasion.
