Every Porsche model has its charm but none gets my heart racing like the Panamera. On the racetracks, I put the Panamera S E-Hybridto to test and discovered that its performance surpasses most sports cars.
The Panamera S E-Hybrid comes with innovative battery technology that promotes eco-friendly vehicles. Even Dubai Police recently added three new Porsche Panamera S E-Hybrids to their fleet of luxury cars, which takes sports car e-mobility performance to a new level.
The main attraction The Panamera S E-Hybrid provides is that it satisfies people who love both looks and performance and maintains its visual identity with the customary ‘e-hybrid’ logo on the front doors, the ‘Panamera S’ logo on the rear hatch with an Acid Green surround.
Porsche has always been at the forefront of electronic mobility in the performance and luxury class, and through new models, the brand continues to push the boundaries of possibility. The Panamera S E-Hybrid is a good example of how Porsche offers hybrid models as authentic sports cars, resulting in extra performance and efficiency.
It comes with an impresive 416 horsepower, acceleration from 0-100 km/h in 5.5 seconds and a top speed of 270 km/h, it is a Porsche Gran Turismo through and through.
The Panamera S E-Hybrid, a parallel plug-in hybrid model, provides a total concept that networks the car and its driver in an intelligent way. It can drive considerable distances in all-electric mode, with a range of up to 36 kilometres and an electric driving top speed of 135 km/h. In the NEDC, the Panamera S E-Hybrid consumes 3.1 l/100 km, which equates to 71 g/km CO2 emissions.
The workings of the combustion engine, electric motor and high-voltage battery are synchronised by the electronic engine management. The combustion engine alone can power the car, with the electric machine alone, or by both units working together.
For practocality, the high-voltage battery is recharged in less than four hours when connected to a conventional household electrical outlet or, whilst driving, through the process of brake energy recovery.
With its sporty performance and utmost efficiency, the Panamera S E-Hybrid is the perfect sportscar for people who like comfortable leisurely drives but enjoy bursts of speed when they need the extra thrill of driving a powerful car.
