Latest Porsche Cayenne delivers more power with plug-in hybrid electric powertrain

Porsche Adds Trio Of Hybrids To 2020 Cayenne Model Line

Maximum torque is available from just above idle, seeing the plug-ins do the 0-100km/h sprint in a rapid 3.8 seconds, on their way to a 295km/h top-speed.

The Sport Chrono Package comes standard on each of the three, headlining the list of additional standard kit.

Set to arrive in the United States early next year, the models have a plug-in hybrid powertrain that features a twin-turbo 4.0-liter V8 engine that produces 541 hp (403 kW / 548 PS). With 670 hp and 663 ft lbs of torque apiece, the Turbo S E-Hybrid and Turbo S E-Hybrid Coupe lead the 2020 Cayenne range.

Also missing is recommended pricing, but all four models in the new Cayenne S E-Hybrid range are up for pre-order in select countries like Porsche's native Germany.

In the USA, prices for the Porsche Turbo S E-Hybrid start at $161,900 for the regular body style and $164,400 for the Coupe. This coupe has a maximum power of 455hp, 0 - 60 miles per hour acceleration time of 4.7 seconds, and a top speed of 157 miles per hour. Prices start from $288,000 for the regular Cayenne Turbo S E-Hybrid and from $292,700 for the coupe version (excluding on-roads).

Electric power can be used to propel the vehicle on its own in E-Power mode at speeds of up 135 km/h, or used to assist the engine in the Hybrid Auto, Sport and Sport plus modes.

The 14.1kWh battery pack is installed beneath the load-space floor and can be recharged within six hours at a conventional 230-volt power output, or 2.4 hours via a 7.2kW AC charger.

Unfortunately, the crossovers don't come cheap as the Porsche Cayenne Turbo S E-Hybrid will be priced from $161,900 in the United States.

Both models include 18-way Adaptive Sport Seats as standard equipment.

A series of drive modes have also been taken from the Porsche 918 Spyder hypercar, which can be used to either maximise performance or range. In addition to the two top models, the Cayenne E-Hybrid Coupé now complements the series. Eight-way power sport seats, a fixed glass panoramic roof and 20-inch alloy wheels are standard with the fashion-forward variant, which also features a pair of slightly lower seats in the second row on account of its sloped roof. There are still options, though, like a louder sport exhaust and rear-axle steering. Top speed is an electronically-limited 183 miles per hour.

All Cayenne Turbo S E-Hybrid models are easily distinguishable by the acid green color around their badges and brake calipers. The Coupe E-Hybrid also gets carbon-ceramic brakes, an active anti-roll bar, and other goodies.
