    The new Porsche Panamera e-Hybrid has been revealed with a longer 95km EV-only range. It also has faster charging times than the outgoing model. The new Porsche Panamera e-Hybrid is based on the latest Panamera that was revealed late last year

    1. Porsche Panamera e-Hybrid gets multiple powertrain options
    2. Gets aero-optimised design over the standard car
    3. India to get V6 and V8 Panamera models only.

    The Panamera e-hybrid is available in two variants, featuring a twin-turbocharged 2.9-litre V6 petrol engine, an electric motor and a 25.9kWh battery. Larger in capacity by 8kWh (but not much larger physically) than before, it gives an EV range of 95km. It's capable of charging in 2hr 39min from a domestic charger, 1hr 26min faster than its predecessor. It can also be topped up at rates of up to 88kW by the car's regenerative braking system.

    The Panamera 4 e-Hybrid’s V6 produces 300hp on its own, but with the help of a new, weight-optimised motor in the PDK eight-speed automatic gearbox, the total output is put at 470hp. That means a 0-100kph time of 4.1sec and a top speed of 278kph. The Panamera 4S e-Hybrid uses the same engine but with an extra 48hp, taking it to a combined 544hp, which trims the 0-100kph time to just 3.7sec and hikes the top speed to 288kph.

    An even more powerful Panamera Turbo S e-Hybrid is expected to join the ranks down the line. It could surpass the 680hp of the previous iteration, which would make it one of the quickest plug-in hybrids on sale globally.

    As far as styling goes, PHEV Panameras are distinguished from pure-ICE models by way of an aerodynamically optimised front bumper and the option of green or black brake calipers, but the overall design remains the same. Porsche’s new Active Suspension Management (PASM) system is also available as an option; it can adjust the dampers 13 times every second in response to the behaviour of the car.

    Porsche Panamera: India line-up

    The latest-gen Panamera is available in India in an RWD V6 iteration. The Panamera V8 will follow in the near future, but the hybrid line-up won’t come to India due to extremely low sales volume.
