Porsche Panamera 4 E-Hybrid is the four-door sports car can fly out from zero to 62 m.p.h. in 4.6 seconds, while driving emission-free for up to 31 miles. German automaker will officially present its fourth iteration of the Panamera model, the 85-year-old company’s flagship sedan, at the Paris Motor Show, starting October 1. The car, priced at $120,000, is available to order now and will roll out in April 2017, starting in Europe.
The Panamera 4 E-Hybrid with controlled all-wheel drive and an electric range of 50 kilometers is potent to produce some 340 kW (462 hp) of system power and delivers fuel consumption figures of 2.5 l/100 km in the New European Driving Cycle (NEDC) for plug-in hybrid models. The all-wheel Porsche achieves a top speed of 278 km/h and delivers a system torque of 700 Nm from stationary without hesitation. The torque is transferred to all four wheels and the standard three-chamber air suspension ensures an optimum balance between comfort and dynamism at all times.
The Panamera 4 E-Hybrid sports a 14.1-kilowatt-per-hour battery pack. The high-voltage battery takes just 5.8 hours to fully charge via either a 230-V, 10-A connection or using a timer through Porsche Communication Management (PCM) and the Porsche Car Connect app (for smartphones and Apple Watch).
The Panamera 4 E-Hybrid includes two seven-inch touch screens in the cockpit as well as a separate 12.3-inch screen for rear passengers. A 12.3-inch touchscreen functions as a central PCM control and display unit. The driver can access various items of hybrid-specific information both here on the dash and in the instrument cluster. The boost assistant and hybrid assistant are both practical and informative. The boost assistant display shows the energy available for boosting, while the hybrid assistant provides various visual signals for regulating the electrical drive power.
The Sport Chrono Package including the mode switch integrated into the steering wheel forms part of the standard equipment on the Panamera 4 E-Hybrid. The mode switch and Porsche Communication Management are used to activate the driving modes: “E-Power”, “Hybrid Auto”, “E-Hold” and “E-Charge.”
