GOING GREEN AGAIN
Hybrid Drive on the Porsche Panamera


Porsche

Following the Cayenne, Porsche will also be building a hybrid drive version of the new Panamera which will offer an average fuel consumption of less than 9 litres/100 km.

The new Panamera will be the first four-door sports model to feature fuel-efficient full parallel hybrid technology. It will consist of the battery unit positioned in the luggage compartment, the power electronics, and the hybrid module between the engine and transmission comprising an additional clutch and the electric motor.

The hybrid module is able to disengage either the combustion engine or the electric motor, or to combine both drive systems as one joint power unit allowing it to be driven in a number of different modes ranging from allelectric drive to sporting style which is typical of a Porsche.
