Porsche Adds Trio Of Hybrids To 2020 Cayenne Model Line

Porsche on Monday unveiled the 2020 Cayenne E-Hybrid Coupe and Cayenne Turbo S E-Hybrid Coupe. Sitting pretty at the top spot in the German automaker's luxury SUV line-up, the pair of gas-electric trucks demonstrate that one of the great things about electrification is that it can deliver you great heaping piles of power and torque.

They're not just impressive figures for a hybrid, they in fact make the 2020 Cayenne Turbo S E-Hybrid and 2020 Cayenne Turbo S E-Hybrid Coupe the most powerful cars to bear the Cayenne badge. Output is sent through the ceiling, putting down a meaty 670 hp and 663 lb. -ft. Both variants combine a 4.0-liter twin-turbocharged V-8 with an electric motor for a blend of performance and efficiency.

So far, so Cayenne Turbo, but Zuffenhausen has also thrown in a 136 PS/400 Nm electric motor on top of that, sandwiched between the petrol mill and an eight-speed Tiptronic automatic transmission. Porsche Traction Management (PTM) all-wheel drive is standard, as is the Sport Chrono Package. When the electric motor is doing all the work, the Cayenne Turbo S E-Hybrid can travel up to 24.8 miles (40 km) on electricity alone. Both Cayenne Coupe hybrids get the same fixed upper roof spoiler, and add an adaptive spoiler beneath it that can extend 5.3 inches at 56 miles per hour and above to add aero stability. This uses a less powerful 3.0 litre turbo V6, now fitted with a particulate filter; nevertheless, it still develops a total system output of 462 PS and 700 Nm, allowing it to go from zero to 100 km/h in five seconds flat and hit a top speed of 253 km/h. The two Turbo S E-Hybrid models also feature ceramic composite brakes, Porsche Dynamic Chassis Control, Torque Vectoring+, 18-way Adaptive Sport Seats, 21-inch AeroDesign wheels, body-color wheel arch extensions, and the upgraded 7.2-kW onboard charger.

The battery of the Cayenne plug-in hybrid can be recharged using a 400-volt connection in 2.4 hours, or in six hours when using 230 volts. Rear-wheel steering and a sports-exhaust are also available as an option if you wish. Eighteen-way adaptive sport seats are standard, too, for a little extra comfort.

The Cayenne E-Hybrid Coupe gets eight-way seats, a fixed panoramic roof, and 20-inch Cayenne Design wheels. It comes with various driving modes - Hybrid Auto, Sport, Sport Plus modes, along with E-Charge and E-Hold settings.

Porsche says all three cars should arrive in dealerships in the United States sometime in Q1 2020. Porsche announced on Tuesday (August 13) the launch a new flagship in the line, the Cayenne Turbo S E-Hybrid.
