Porsche has introduced the new Panamera Turbo S E-Hybrid Sport Turismo.
Set to be sold alongside the hatchback variant, the range-topping plug-in hybrid wagon has a twin-turbo 4.0-liter V8 engine that produces 550 PS (404 kW). It is backed up by a plug-in hybrid powertrain that features a 14.1 kWh lithium-ion battery and an electric motor that develops 136 PS (100 kW). This gives the wagon a combined output of 680 PS (500 kW) and 850 Nm (626 lb-ft) of torque.
Thanks to all-wheel drive and its impressive output, the Panamera Turbo S E-Hybrid Sport Turismo can accelerate from 0-100 km/h (0-62 mph) in 3.4 seconds before hitting a top speed of 310 km/h (192 mph). More importantly, the model averages 3.0 L/100 km (78.4 mpg US / 94.1 mpg UK) and can travel up to 49 km (30.4 miles) on electricity alone. When the battery is depleted, it can be recharged in 2.4-6 hours, depending on the charger and the power connection.
Besides the high-tech powertrain, the model features a “4+1 seating configuration” and 425 liters (15 cubic feet) of luggage space. However, that can be expanded to 1,295 liters (45.7 cubic feet) when the rear seats are folded down.
The Porsche Panamera Turbo S E-Hybrid Sport Turismo is currently available to order and German pricing starts at €188,592. U.S. deliveries are slated for next spring and pricing begins at $188,400.
