Porsche Cayenne Turbo S E-Hybrid revealed

Porsche Cayenne Turbo S E-hybrid 2019 first drive review- hero rear

Porsche has introduced a high-performance plug-in hybrid version of the Cayenne as it continues to expand its portfolio of electrified models.

Hybrids don't have to be earnest and piously-green, something Porsche has clearly taken to heart with the 2020 Cayenne Turbo S E-Hybrid and 2020 Cayenne Turbo S E-Hybrid Coupe. Not only the development of the new model on its own electric platform was expensive, but also the conversion of the plant in Zuffenhausen.

An assortment of options will be available including a Lightweight Sport Package. Aided by a fresh set of dealer-installed Pirelli P Zero Corsa PZC4 summer performance tires ($2110) in their newly staggered widths that put more rubber on the pavement in the rear, this example ripped to 60 miles per hour in a mere 3.5 seconds behind its 541-hp twin-turbo 4.0-liter V-8 and crossed the quarter-mile mark in 12.1 seconds at 115 miles per hour. No, it doesn't get the famed PDK like the Panamera Turbo S E-Hybrid. Everything that comes standard on the Turbo hybrid models can be optioned onto the E-Hybrid Coupe save for torque vectoring. It uses that same electric motor and battery with a 134-hp electric motor, which propels the plug-in hybrids to 60 miles per hour (96.5 km/h) in 3.6 seconds.

Both models include 18-way Adaptive Sport Seats as standard equipment. Two versions of the package will be available and they save up to 48 lbs (22 kg) of weight.

The carbon-ceramic brakes also cut a significant amount of unsprung mass from the ride-and-handling equation, yet despite the 21-inch wheels, we didn't feel much harshness in our test car's ride quality, especially considering the performance on offer here.

WhatsApp for Android beta gets updated with support for Fingerprint Unlock
As per the report from WABetaInfo , this feature is available on Android Beta users, which runs on the app version - 2.19.221. If you're an Android WhatsApp Beta user, we would also recommend users to update the app and enable the feature immediately.

The standard Cayenne E-Hybrid Coupe brings up the rear, with a relatively modest 455hp from its 3.0-litre turbocharged V6 in combination with an electric motor. Added to this is a top speed of 295km/h, with the sole electric portion of the vehicles delivering 135km/h of speed alone. It puts out a net 455 horsepower and 516 pound-feet of torque, enough to shove the auto to 60 miles per hour in 4.7 seconds before topping out at 157 mph.

Eight-way Sport Seats offer significant side and thigh bolstering, further emphasizing the sporty intent of the Cayenne E-Hybrid Coupe.

However, all this also comes at a typical Porsche price: the Cayenne Turbo S E-Hybrid is available from 172,604 Euro, the Cayenne Turbo S E-Hybrid Coupé from 176,293 Euro.

The Cayenne E-Hybrid Coupe gets eight-way seats, a fixed panoramic roof, and 20-inch Cayenne Design wheels.
