Porsche Goes Green with Hybrid Models
Always on the cutting edge of technology, Porsche is moving towards electric mobility through its E-Performance lineup, currently including the Panamera 4 E-Hybrid and the Cayenne S E-Hybrid. The brand promises vehicles that are fuel efficient, but never lacking in power or excitement.
Porsche explains, “Our plug-in hybrid technology has to meet two strict requirements. Firstly, it must drastically reduce fuel consumption and emissions. Secondly, it must deliver an experience that pushes the driver firmly back into the seat…The combination of combustion engine and electric machine is crucial for this peak performance. The combustion engine builds up power and torque as engine speed increases. The maximum torque of the electric machine is available immediately. As a result, consistently high overall torque and dynamic responsiveness are available over an extremely wide rpm range. And your adrenaline also reaches a new maximum level.”
