2024 Porsche Cayenne S E-Hybrid PHEV Model Revealed
The Porsche Cayenne S E-Hybrid model offers a more powerful 3.0L V6 plug-in hybrid option.
The 3rd generation Porsche Cayenne was facelifted a few months ago and following that we saw the introduction of the first ever Turbo E-Hybrid model with a revised 4.0L V8 motor under the hood. Now the facelift Cayenne is getting its third electrified engine variant that’s positioned between the E-Hybrid and the Turbo E-Hybrid – meet the Cayenne S E-Hybrid, available next year in SUV or SUV coupé body style.
This 2024 Porsche Cayenne S E-Hybrid offers a nice balance between the two. It features the same 3.0L V6 turbocharged motor as the Cayenne E-Hybrid model but with revised tuning and a higher overall output or 348hp. Paired to a 174hp electric motor, the Cayenne S E-Hybrid has a total system output of 512hp and 750Nm of torque. For context, the Cayenne E-Hybrid has a total system output of 450hp and 649Nm of torque. This gives it a 0-100km/h time of about 4.4 seconds. Porsche says it’s very slightly faster than the non-hybrid 4.0L V8 turbo model. Charging times are lower and pure electric driving range is up too.
Standard on the Porsche Cayenne S E-Hybrid is adaptive air suspension with two-chamber, two-valve technology for a wide range of spring rates and dynamic driving behaviour.
The battery capacity is 25.9 kWh and there’s an 11kW on-board AC charger that fills it up in 2.5 hours on a standard Level 2 charger. This variant comes with 20″ Cayenne S wheels, two twin-tailpipes in brushed stainless steel and the Silver exterior in SUV form or Black exterior in SUV Coupé form.
Other standard equipment includes Matrix Design LED headlights with auto high beams, Lane Change Assist, 8-way powered seats, the Sport Chrono package (with a steering-mounted Mode switch), Comfort Access, stainless steel pedals, Diamar interior package painted in Silvershade as well as new Apple CarPlay functions and a new air quality system offering.
Porsche says that it’s the first brand to offer this revised Apple CarPlay that offers easier access to vehicle functions on the same screen. Normally, Apple CarPlay takes up the infotainment screen in its entirety, blocking off baked-in vehicle feature menus unless it’s minimised.
