CARS:Porsche introduces the world’s 1st plug-in hybrid Panamera

In the second generation of its Gran Turismo, Porsche is introducing the world’s first plug-in hybrid to the luxury class – the Panamera S E-Hybrid with 416 hp of system power. Along with this premiere, two luxurious Executive versions are making their debut – the Panamera 4S and Panamera Turbo with an extended wheelbase . In addition, an entirely new three-litre V6 engine with biturbo charging is launched with the new Panamera S and 4S.

The Panamera model range has been further extended and consists now of ten derivatives, offering an even broader range between sportiness and comfort. New and further developed technologies have enabled fuel savings of up to 56 per cent, while enhancing operating and driving comfort.
The new Panamera underscores its exceptional positioning with a more expressive design language based on the company’s latest sports car generations that are marked by tighter lines, more pronounced contours and newly shaped body elements. In short, the Porsche Panamera is even more efficient, sporty, comfortable and elegant. The new generation Gran Turismo celebrates its world premiere at Auto China in Shanghai, which opens its gates on the 21st of April 2013.
Panamera S E-Hybrid sets new standards in efficiency, performance and operating convenience The Panamera S E-Hybrid is a systematically advanced development of the parallel full hybrids with a more powerful electric motor, a higher-performance battery that supplies more energy and the ability to charge it externally from the electrical grid.
The electric drive produces 95 hp, which is more than double the power of the previous model’s electric motor at 47 hp. It draws its energy from a newly developed lithium-ion battery, which at 9.4 kWh has over five times the 1.7 kWh energy capacity of the previous battery in nickel metal hydride technology.
When connected to an industrial outlet, it can be charged within around two and a half hours via the integrated on-board charger and the standard Porsche Universal Charger (AC), and it can be charged in less than four hours when connected to a conventional household electrical outlet in Germany.
The Panamera S E-Hybrid exceeds the driving performance of the previous model by far. In addition, the previous model’s NEDC fuel consumption of 7.1 l/100 km was reduced by 56 per cent to 3.1 l/100 km. That equates to CO2 emissions of 71 g/km. At the same time, its all-electric driving performance was substantially improved with regard to electric acceleration, the electric range and electric top speed
