Like with the Panamera range the most powerful car in the Cayenne range is not the Turbo version. As car companies focus on electrifying their ranges, Porsche is also doing the same.
But unlike other manufacturers who use e-power to make their model line ups more efficient and make themselves look good.
Porsche like the McLaren did with the P1 more than 6 years ago is using e-power to make their cars more bad**s and more powerful.
Porsche has now announced that the most powerful Cayenne is a plug-in hybrid. The Cayenne Turbo S E-Hybrid is essentially the Turbo with added electric power.
So you get the 4.0-litre V8 from the Turbo churning out 404-kW and 770-Nm of torque being assisted by an electric motor which is integrated into the eight-speed Tiptronic S transmission putting out 100-kW for a system output of 500-kW.
The torque figure for the whole system is 900-Nm, available from just idle Porsche says.
This makes the S E-Hybrid more powerful than the Bentley Bentayga Speed and the Lamborghini Urus.
The S E Hybrid is available on the normal Cayenne and the Coupe version. The 0-100-km/h time is identical at 3.8 seconds and the top speed is 295-km/h.
Meaning it is slower than both those cars to 100-km/h and they have higher top speeds.
The car can go 40 kilometres on electric power only at speeds up to 135-km/h. The motor is powered by a 14.1 kWh battery pack.
To get the full 500-kW you'll need to keep the batteries charged up. That'll take 2 hours 24 minutes using the standard 7.2kW onboard charger, six hours with a conventional household plug.
