Today, Porsche offers one of the most advanced hybrid systems on the planet in the Panamera E-Hybrid models. A force-fed V6 twin-turbo sits under the hood and provides the bulk of the horsepower for when you need your Porsche to accelerate. An electric motor also sends additional power to the transmission, providing instant torque and acceleration.
While driving regularly, however, the system offers something no other Porsche can: electric-only drive, emitting zero emissions and no sound. If you only drive short distances, you will never hear the gasoline engine. Plug the vehicle in at the end of the day and it will recharge overnight, giving you a full bank of power for the next morning. During the drive, the vehicle will use regenerative braking to give you a little more energy.
Driving in all-electric mode provides one of the quietest rides on the market. And with the world-class interiors and ground-breaking technologies that you get from Porsche, the Panamera E-Hybrid lineup from Porsche is both a tribute to the brand's story and a bold step toward the future.
