Shanghai/Stuttgart. Porsche is expanding its Panamera model range with the new E-Hybrid variants. The new plug-in hybrids offer impressive acceleration figures and driving performance as well as strong E-Performance: The electric range is now up to 96 kilometres (WLTP city). A total of five Panamera E-Hybrid models with different power and body types are currently available in the Chinese market and available to order now from the MSRP of CNY 1,288,000.

Powertrain: Optimised Hybrid-Performance

The Panamera 4 E-Hybrid is particularly efficient and versatile. To generate powerful acceleration, Porsche has combined a new e-hybrid system with a significantly revamped 2.9-litre V6 biturbo petrol engine (224 kW/304 PS). The system output of 346 kW (470 PS) and the maximum torque of 650 Nm enable acceleration from zero to 100 km/h in 4.1 seconds and a top speed of 280 km/h. The purely electric range of the Panamera 4 E-Hybrid increases to 96 kilometres(WLTP city).

The Panamera 4S E-Hybrid places a stronger focus on driving dynamics as well as sustained power delivery in the upper rev range. Its 2.9-litre biturbo six-cylinder engine delivers 260 kW (353 PS). The system output is 400 kW (544 PS) and the maximum torque is 750 Nm. This enables the Panamera 4S E-Hybrid to accelerate from zero to 100 km/h in 3.7 seconds and reach a top speed of 290 km/h.

Compared to the previous generation, all Panamera E-Hybrid models offer a greater electric range, faster charging speed, better throttle response and better driving performance in almost all disciplines. At 25.9 kWh (gross), the new high voltage battery provides around 45 per cent more capacity in a comparable space. At the same time, the new 11 kW On-Board-AC-charger shortens the charging time to two hours and 39 minutes. With 140 kW (190 PS) and 450 Nm of torque, the completely new electric motor offers significantly more power than its predecessor. It is also integrated into the housing in an efficient and weight-optimised way, and into the oil cooling circulation of the PDK transmission. The internal rotor design (the rotor rotates inside the stator) reduces the mass inertia by 50 per cent, which improves the throttle response. With a recuperation of up to 88 kW, the electric motor also contributes to the significantly increased electric range of the Panamera E-Hybrid models.

E-Hybrid driving modes with optimised strategy

The four optimised E-Hybrid-specific driving modes, as well as the improved Sport and Sport Plus modes, further optimise the efficiency of the E-Hybrid models. The vehicles always start in the purely electric E-Power mode. Once the state of charge of the battery is under a certain minimum value, the system automatically switches to Hybrid Auto mode, which adapts the operating strategy to the current driving situation. In addition, with active route guidance in Hybrid Auto, the operating strategy is further optimised by knowing the route ahead. In this way, the proportion of electrically driven distances in city traffic can be maximised and efficiency increased. The system uses both car and navigation data for this purpose.

In E-Hold mode, the current state of charge of the battery is preserved. In E-Charge mode, on the other hand, the combustion engine charges the battery to up to 80 per cent out of town and above 55 km/h, while the Panamera utilises the efficiency benefits of the hybrid drive in city traffic. In Sport and Sport Plus modes, Porsche reduces the target state of charge of the battery to 20 and 30 per cent respectively (previously 30 and 80 per cent). This increases efficiency without sacrificing performance.

E-Hybrids with innovative active suspension

Porsche equips all variants of the new Panamera with an adaptive two-chamber air suspension including Porsche Active Suspension Management (PASM) with two-valve dampers as standard (China standard configuration to be announced). The innovative Porsche Active Ride active suspension is also available for the E-Hybrid models. It combines the ability to offer optimised traction and cornering performance with a high degree of comfort. Every individual damper – also equipped with two-valve technology – has an electrically operated hydraulic pump, which is powered by the 400-volt system and which can be used to actively build up forces in the rebound and compression directions. As a result, the suspension almost completely absorbs body movements caused by road imperfections and keeps the vehicle horizontal at all times during dynamic driving manoeuvres. The dampers operate at up to 13 Hz, which means they can adjust the setting up to 13 times per second and thus react lightning fast to the respective driving situation and the road surface. The technology also enables innovative functions such as the overcompensation of pitching and rolling motions, as well as the raising of the body when getting in and out of the car.

Sporty details and enhanced standard equipment

All variants of the new Panamera have an athletic, fresh design. At the front, the look is characterised by newly shaped, standard matrix LED headlights and an additional horizontal air intake. At the rear of the sports saloon, a continuous taillight and a frameless rear window distinguish the new Panamera. Window trim in silver enhances the side line.

The standard equipment of the Panamera 4 E-Hybrid includes 19-inch wheels, black brake callipers and matrix LED headlights(China standard configuration to be an-nounced). The innovative high-resolution HD matrix LED lighting system is available as an option. The Panamera 4S E-Hybrid is distinguished by 20-inch wheels in Panamera AeroDesign, silver Sport tailpipes and red brake callipers. Brake callipers in Acid Green and Black are optionally available. The Panamera 4S E-Hybrid brakes with ten-piston brake callipers at the front axle as standard (China standard configura-tion to be announced). Alternatively, the PCCB (Porsche Ceramic Composite Brake) is available for this model in conjunction with 21-inch wheels. The ceramic composite discs measure 440 millimetres at the front axle and 410 millimetres at the rear ax-le.Sporty proportions and coupé-like lines.
