New Porsche Cayenne & Cayenne Coupe E-Hybrid models announced

New Porsche Cayenne & Cayenne Coupe E-Hybrid models announced

The pilot's view inside the 2020 Porsche Cayenne Turbo S E-Hybrid. That's almost $35,000 more than the cost of the standard Cayenne Turbo, although the delta falls closer to $25,000 after accounting for the gasoline-electric model's extra standard features.

All Cayenne Turbo S E-Hybrid models are easily distinguishable by the acid green color around their badges and brake calipers.

0 to 100 comes up in 3.8 seconds with a top speed limited to 294 kmph.

Porsche has introduced a high-performance plug-in hybrid version of the Cayenne as it continues to expand its portfolio of electrified models.

Unfortunately, the crossovers don't come cheap as the Porsche Cayenne Turbo S E-Hybrid will be priced from $161,900 in the United States. In addition to the two top models, the Cayenne E-Hybrid Coupé now complements the series. Power is routed to all four wheels through an eight-speed automatic transmission.

This is what happened to 16-year-old Fortnite World Champ Kyle "Bugha" Giersdorf on his stream last night. Thanks to Twitch chat, they found out that Bugha said he got swatted before abruptly leaving mid-game.

The more-affordable Cayenne Coupe E-Hybrid makes use of a turbocharged 3.0-litre V6 engine good for 335PS coupled with a 134PS electric motor.

Yesterday, Porsche revealed that the fastest Cayennes in the segment - the Turbo S and Turbo S Coupe - have been outperformed by two newly launched hybrid models: The Cayenne Turbo S E-Hybrid and the Cayenne E-Hybrid Coupe.

Another such example is the new BMW 225xe Active Tourer which was announced on Friday (European time), and which with a 10kWh battery, 65kW electric motor and top electric speed of 131km/hr will offer up to 53km of zero emissions driving according to the German carmaker. That's seven horses down on the Panamera Turbo S E-Hybrid with the same powertrain, but 37 more foot-pounds of twist. The Sport Chrono Package, which includes a mode switch featuring the Sport Response button, is also standard on all three vehicles. Top speed is an electronically-limited 183 miles per hour.

The Cayenne Turbo S E-Hybrid and the Cayenne Turbo S E-Hybrid Coupé both ship standard with items such as the firm's dynamic chassis control, electric roll stabilisation, adaptive three-chamber air suspension, torque vectoring plus, a rear-axle differential lock, ceramic composite brakes and 21-inch lightweight alloy wheels. Eight-way power sport seats, a fixed glass panoramic roof and 20-inch alloy wheels are standard with the fashion-forward variant, which also features a pair of slightly lower seats in the second row on account of its sloped roof. This coupe has a maximum power of 455hp, 0 - 60 miles per hour acceleration time of 4.7 seconds, and a top speed of 157 miles per hour.
