Porsche is expanding its hybrid range for the new Cayenne further. As the third plug-in model of the luxury SUV series that was comprehensively revised recently, the new Cayenne S E-Hybrid impresses with its finely balanced driving dynamics, comfort and efficiency.

Stuttgart. The new Cayenne S E-Hybrid is the third electrified engine variant within the model series and is positioned between the Cayenne E-Hybrid and the Cayenne Turbo E-Hybrid models. Focusing on a fine balance between everyday usability and performance, the Cayenne S E-Hybrid is available in SUV and Coupe body styles and is a well-suited addition to the model range. The hybrid technology of the new Cayenne, comprehensively revised earlier this year, also provides this model variant with a further improved electric range and shorter charging times due to its intelligent energy management.

In the Cayenne S E-Hybrid, a revised three-liter V6 turbo engine with 348 hp (260 kW) is paired with a 174 hp (130 kW) electric motor. Together they produce a system output of 512 hp and a maximum system torque of 553 lb-ft, allowing the Cayenne S E-Hybrid to accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in 4.4 seconds and reach the ¼ mile marker from a standing start in 13.0 seconds, a tenth of a second quicker than its non-hybrid twin-turbo V8 counterpart.

Air suspension with two-chamber, two-valve technology for a broad range of performance

In the Cayenne S E-Hybrid, the standard adaptive air suspension contributes to the combination of increased performance and greater driving comfort. Its innovative two-chamber, two-valve technology enables a particularly wide spectrum of spring rates and dynamic behavior that range from comfort-oriented to high performance. At the same time, the new S E-Hybrid models benefit from the optimization of the hybrid system of the current Cayenne generation. This includes a battery capacity of 25.9 kWh (gross) and an 11 kW on-board AC charger that can fully charge the Cayenne S E-Hybrid in roughly two and a half hours with the standard Level 2 charger on a 240V circuit.
