Porsche Introduces New Panamera Turbo S E-Hybrid Sport Turismo With 680HP and 49KM of Pure Electric Range
Porsche is expanding its hybrid range, as a powerful plug-in hybrid is being added to the Panamera Sport Turismo model line.
The new Panamera Turbo S E-Hybrid Sport Turismo flagship model will combine a four-litre V8 engine with an electric motor, resulting in a system power of 680 hp. Even when just above idle speed, the Panamera Turbo offers 850 Nm of torque. That means it accelerates from zero to 100 km/h in 3.4 seconds and reaches a top speed of 310 km/h. Average consumption in the New European Driving Cycle (NEDC) is 3.0 l/100 km.
The most powerful Sport Turismo has a range of up to 49 kilometres using solely electric power and therefore producing zero local emissions. With a large tailgate, low loading edge, increased luggage compartment volume and a 4+1 seating configuration, the new flagship Panamera also offers a high standard of everyday practicality.
The Turbo S E-Hybrid Sport Turismo offers all of the innovations of the second generation Panamera, including the digitalised Porsche Advanced Cockpit. Another of these innovations is the roof spoiler, the pitch of which is set to one of three different angles depending on the driving situation and selected vehicle settings. It also generates additional downforce of up to 50 kg on the rear axle.
Up to a speed of 170 km/h, the aerodynamic guide element stays in its retracted position at an angle of minus seven degrees to follow the roof line, which slopes to the rear. Above 170 km/h, the roof spoiler automatically moves to the performance position with an angle of plus one degree, thereby increasing driving stability and lateral dynamics.
As with all Panamera Sport Turismo models with more than 440 hp of power, the new top-of-the-line model also features adaptive three-chamber air suspension including Porsche Active Suspension Management (PASM) for a broad range between a high level of driving dynamics and driving comfort.
