Porsche recently expanded the Cayenne range with a new model derivative called S E-Hybrid. The new 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. It will be available in SUV and SUV Coupé body variants and Porsche promises further improved electric range and short charging times due to its intelligent energy management.
Visually, the Cayenne S E-Hybrid also integrates seamlessly within the existing model range. It has the 20-inch Cayenne S wheels as standard and is equipped with an exhaust system with two twin tailpipes in brushed stainless steel. As an SUV, the Cayenne S E-Hybrid has the Silver exterior package, and as a Coupé the Black exterior package. For night-time driving, safety and comfort are supported by the standard matrix LED headlights. The new, innovative HD matrix LED headlights are available as optional extra.
Inside, the Cayenne S E-Hybrid features eight-way seats, the Sport Chrono package including a mode switch for selecting the driving programme, pedal pads in stainless steel, as well as the Diamar interior package painted in Silvershade. The driver also benefits from additional functions in the My Porsche app, including new functions in Apple CarPlay.
Comfort is provided by the new optional passenger screen that includes in-car video functions, as well as the new air quality system offering which is designed to filter out particles and hazardous substances.
The Cayenne S E-Hybrid is powered by a revised 3.0-litre V6 turbo engine developing 260 kW. The engine is paired with a 130 kW electric motor. Together they achieve a system output of 382 kW and 750 Nm of torque. Porsche claims the Cayenne S E-Hybrid has an electric range combined (WLTP) 71 – 78 km and up to 90 km in town thanks to a 25.9 kWh battery pack. The new on-board AC charger fully charges the Cayenne S E-Hybrid in less than two and a half hours at a suitable power source with a charging capacity of up to 11 kW.
The Cayenne S E-Hybrid accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h in 4.7 seconds and has a top speed of 263 km/h.
