Santa Barbara Porsche provides a look at the new Panamera S E-Hybrid which offers a wide array of improved performance, efficiency, and technology features.
Porsche is pleased to introduce its first plug-in hybrid, the new Panamera S E-Hybrid. This incredible electric hybrid vehicle delivers leading performance, design, and luxury elegance, combined with environmentally friendly efficiency. The Panamera S was recently debuted at Auto China in Shanghai on April 21, 2013 and intrigues Porsche fans worldwide.
Improved Efficiency with Electric Power
The Panamera S E-Hybrid offers more improved design and efficiency than its predecessor, the Panamera S Hybrid. The Panamera S E-Hybrid features a more powerful electric motor, a higher-performance more powerful battery, and is conveniently rechargeable from home or public charging stations. In electric drive, the car produces 95 hp, more than double than the previous model which offered 47hp. Furthermore, the 9.4kWh battery delivers an increased capacity over the previous lithium-ion battery. The vehicle is charged via an integrated on-board charging component and the standard Porsche Universal Charger (AC). The car can be charged to full capacity within 2.5 hours when connected to a 240V charging station or power source.
Greater Speed, Acceleration, and Range
In addition to greater efficiency, the Panamera S E-Hybrid also offers improved performance over the Panamera S Hybrid in the electric-only mode. The Panamera S E-Hybrid delivers better acceleration, range, and top speed. In the electric-only mode, the car creates zero emissions and consumers no fuel. The top speed in electric mode is 84 mph and the driving range in the electric-only mode is estimated up to 20 miles and will vary due to the effects of environmental conditions, terrain, air conditioning and heating use while in operation.
Range and speed aren’t the only improved factors – the Panamera S E-Hybrid is capable of accelerating from 0-60 in just 5.2 seconds. An electric boost is also available for instances where maximum acceleration is needed. In this case, the electric motor works with the combustion engine to deliver the most power.
In addition to improved performance, the Porsche Panamera S E-Hybrid also offers drivers a complete range of updated convenience and technology features. These include a charge status indicator and an improved programmable auxiliary climate control system, and remote access to driving range information and location indicator via mobile app.
