Porsche Panamera plug-in hybrid

2014 Porsche Panamera E-hybrid

Porsche has uncovered its new plug-in hybrid Panamera sedan and it s more fuel efficient than a Toyota Prius.

The Panamera S E-Hybrid is powered by a 3.0-litre petrol V6 engine teamed to an electric motor, which will reportedly allow the car a fuel consumption figure of less than 3.0L/100km.

However, the average fuel use figure is expected to be significantly higher for motorists travelling longer distances, as the battery can propel the new Panamera S E-Hybrid for up to 36 kilometres in favourable conditions.

Combined power for the hybrid Panamera has jumped from 279kW to 310kW, bringing down the car s 0-100km/h claim to 5.2 seconds.

The car’s lithium-ion battery pack stores five times more energy than the previous model (9.4kWh versus 1.7), and can be recharged from a regular powerpoint in between two and four hours.

The electric motor can drive the car at speeds up to 135km/h, and is able to act as a power booster for overtaking manoeuvres. Power is sent to the ground via an eight-speed automatic transmission, rather than Porsche s clever PDK dual-clutch unit.

The mid-life update of the Panamera range which will debut at the Shanghai motor show later in April will also see a new 3.0-litre twin-turbo V6 engine replace the 4.8-litre V8 for Panamera S and 4S models. It produces 309kW/520Nm, up 15kW/20Nm on the V8. Fuel use is also expected to drop to below 10.0L/100km (currently 10.8L).

Cosmetic changes for the facelifted Panamera range include LED headlights, revised bumpers, a new bonnet and cleaner tail-end design. Porsche has confirmed it will offer a range of long wheelbase Panamera models, but none of those are expected to be sold here.

The Panamera S E-Hybrid is expected to arrive here late in 2013, while other facelifted models in the Panamera range should arrive slightly sooner.

If after all this input by Porsche into this car, why bother with any of this development at all.

Its an advertisement that really enhances. nothing.

Wheras when I read about a Cayman R or S, my brain and interest goes into overdrive, the testoserone begins to course through my veins at breakneck speed. I am ‘connected, Porsche you have my undivided attention’. Dont blow it with the Panamera, or whatever you the hell you call it is because my brain has deleted all the information, and it returns to the Porsche, or whan I am much more rational in considering my affordable financial budget limits, my thoughts return to super car (it really is) I can afford, the Renault Megane RS 265, the Red Capsicum Cup which I ordered in February 2013 and will get in June 2013 — AHHHHH

And by the way, it has beaten a Cayman R at the Nurburgring 20.6k circuit — ahhhhh. good selection Tezza

Surely what you’ve said there is that it will be more PETROL-efficient than the Prius, not more FUEL-efficient? It will require some other form of fuel (coal, gas, nuclear) to generate the electricity that is used to charge the plug-in batteries.

Is this the same type of battery that grounded the Boeing dream, and the i miev and Outlander that caught fire and has halted production?

Keep it

Porsche Panamera S E-Hybrid

The long wheel base model would be THE version most suited to our roads considering the condition and extreme distances between stops

As usual, these so-called journalists in Drive just made up some titles without engaging their brain; this should be compared to the plug-in version of the Prius, which uses 1.9l/100km based on the highly optimistic euro fuel cycle. You should also emphasised on how much fuel it uses after the FIRST 100km. The euro test cycle is flawed, and should be replaced with the American version, with eMPG and actual fuel use after the electric range has been exhausted.

Learn a thing or two from the yanks about these type of vehicles before you embarrassed yourself again!

What is the 0-100 time if the electric batteries are flat, meaning that there is no power boost?

Sounds good though.

So what. How many Commodores and tanks of fuel could I buy for the price of the Porsche? How long will it take me to recoup the price difference between the Porsche and Commodore in savings at the bowser?

And it is still ugly..

But Porsche.

I don’t think money saving would be one of the reasons someone buys one of these cars.
