Porsche has been shown, in Paris motor show, for the first time the hybrid version plug-in of the new Panamera, the Porsche Panamera S E-Hybrid. We met him at the beginning of last month, although this was the first time that was left to see live and direct, and will arrive at dealers officials of the brand during the next month of April.
The Panamera S E-Hybrid uses a gasoline engine V6 of 2.9 liters of displacement that produces 330 hp and 450 Nm. This heat engine is associated with the electrical system whose maximum output is 136 hp and torque of 400 Nm. All in all, the combined output rises to a more than acceptable 462 hp with a maximum torque of 700 Nm which is available from the time the vehicle is booted.
The system of automatic transmission PDK with eight-speed transmission and all-wheel-drive are responsible for transmitting all that energy in the best possible way to the asphalt. The consumption approved is 2.5 l/100 km, charging full battery in less than 6 hours in a socket for conventional 230-volt. Your price for our market is 110.890 euros.
however, according to feature our fellow AutoExpress, the brand from Stuttgart could have between hands a Porsche Panamera hybrid much more prestacional; as if 462 cv would be short. It seems to be that Porsche would be studying to launch a similar version, but instead of that the heat engine was a V6 2.9-liter, use a V8 of 4 liters. This will put in a few power levels similar to or higher than the Porsche Panamera Turbo, and with the engine torque would occur the same thing, but more efficiently since it will be available from the first moment.
Of getting to production, it is possible that it was faster than the Panamera Turbo at circuit, although it depends on how much extra weight take. Where yes would win with almost complete security to the current version over sports is in the acceleration from a standing start.
