It can achieve 84 mph in all-electric mode
The Porsche Panamera S E-Hybrid is now available to order, prices have to be confirmed. It will be available to view and drive in Porsche Centres from July 2013.
The Porsche Panamera S plug-in E-Hybrid has a combined output of 416hp with the electric motor producing 95 hp. In pure electric mode the Panamera S E-Hybrid has a range of around 22 miles under test condition, but in the real world this would equate to around 11-22 miles, depending on conditions and driving style. It can achieve 84 mph in all-electric mode with a 0-62 mph time of 5.5 seconds and a top speed of 168 mph under hybrid-power, which is quicker than its predecessor.
When the plug-in Panamera is charged via an industrial outlet, it can be charged within around two and a half hours via the integrated on-board charger and the standard Porsche Universal Charger (AC). It takes around four hours when connected to a conventional household electrical outlet. Under NEDC (New European Driving Cycle) testing fuel economy has increased by 56 per cent to 91 mpg, which equates to emissions of 71 g/km CO2.
The Panamera S E-Hybrid can utilise Porsche Car Connect, which allows the owner to control certain functions from a smartphone, such as pre-heating or cooling, or to find where they have parked their car. On the hybrid you can use this app to remotely monitor the battery condition, driving range and charge status.Published 8 April 2013
