Porsche Cayenne Turbo S E-Hybrid unveiled

Porsche Cayenne Turbo S E-Hybrid unveiled

With the debut of the Cayenne Turbo S E-Hybrid, Porsche has also upped the horsepower ante of its SUV lineup, making it more powerful than the track-honed GT3RS. That's almost $35,000 more than the cost of the standard Cayenne Turbo, although the delta falls closer to $25,000 after accounting for the gasoline-electric model's extra standard features.

Total power is 670 horsepower, therefore, and torque clocks in at a healthy 663 lb-ft. In either case, power comes from a 4.0-litre twin-turbo V8 paired with an electric motor assist system. Porsche is remaining mum on the combined driving range for the new hybrid SUVs, however which makes us think that they will likely require trips to a charging station quite often.

Both models have a top speed of 183mph and can sprint from 0-60mph in 3.6 seconds.

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.

Porsche has announced three new E-hybrid models in the Cayenne line-up: The Cayenne Turbo S E-Hybrid, Cayenne Turbo S E-Hybrid Coupe & the Cayenne E-Hybrid Coupe. In addition to the two top models, the Cayenne E-Hybrid Coupé now complements the series.

If your race auto on its trailer weighs less than 7700 pounds, you could tow it to the track behind the 2019 Porsche Cayenne Turbo. Transmitting all that power to the road is an 8-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission and power goes to all four wheels.

Together, the whole plug-in hybrid electric vehicle (PHEV) system delivers 500kW of power with maximum torque of 900Nm (that's a goodly more than the ICE - internal combustion engine - Cayenne Turbo's max output of 404kW and 770Nm). The 132bhp electric motor continues to be powered by a 14.1kWh Li-ion battery pack. We first saw this setup with the Panamera Turbo S E-Hybrid a couple of years ago. Top track speed for this model is 157 miles per hour. 0-60 miles per hour comes in 4.7 seconds and top speed is 157 miles per hour, and the Sport Chrono Package comes fitted as standard.

The Cayenne Turbo S E-Hybrid and the Cayenne Turbo S E-Hybrid Coupé both ship standard with items such as the firm's dynamic chassis control, electric roll stabilisation, adaptive three-chamber air suspension, torque vectoring plus, a rear-axle differential lock, ceramic composite brakes and 21-inch lightweight alloy wheels.

Additionally, it comes with 20-inch alloy wheels which are standard with the fashion-forward variant, and it also features a pair of slightly lower seats in the second row on account of its fixed glass panoramic roof.
