Porsche has unveiled the new Cayenne Turbo S E-Hybrid and Cayenne Turbo S E-Hybrid Coupe, the most powerful Cayenne models ever. Equipped with a 4-liter twin-turbo V8 and an electric motor, the performance-focused hybrids will develop peak power of 683ps and 900Nm of torque.
The electric motor sits between the gasoline engine and an 8-speed Tiptronic S automatic transmission, allowing the respective power sources to propel the vehicle in combination or independently, depending on the selected drive mode.
The electric motor is connected to a 14.1kWh lithium-ion battery offering 30% more energy capacity than the battery used in previous generation plug-in hybrid Cayenne models. The same battery is used in other current plug-in hybrid Cayenne models.
Thanks to the new powertrain, the SUV models accelerate from 0-100km/h in 3.6 seconds, and on to an electronically limited top speed of 295km/h (183mph).
