2015 Porsche Panamera S E-Hybrid | Even More Fun to Drive

The 2015 Porsche Panamera S E-Hybrid utilizes new hybrid technology to create a fast and powerful vehicle that is fun to drive. As always, Porsche uses current or previous models as inspiration for the technological advancements. In this case, the million dollar 918 Spyder receives the credit with its hybrid engine for inspiring the hybrid Panamera. In turn, the Panamera design is a forerunner for electrification on the next generation of Porsche models.

Many drivers think that they must choose between having a fun sports car and one that is built to perform and exciting to drive. After a test drive in one of these models, they conclude that an electric or hybrid car can be even more enjoyable than a traditional fuel vehicle. In fact, cars can achieve a faster lap time with electrification with maximum torque at zero rpm. They have fun trying out the fast acceleration with no noise in the engine. They discover that it allows a vehicle to have a smaller engine with increased efficiency and enough power for day-to-day driving.

The combustion engine in this model is a 3.0L supercharged 330 horsepower engine. While all of the Porsche models default to the most economical mode, it is possible to override it with your preference. For the hybrid models, you can choose to maximize the most e-power, battery charge or the performance. It even allows you to charge the battery while you are driving.

Hybrids today have larger battery packs to provide a more useful range for the average car owner. The 2015 Porsche Panamera S E-Hybrid can provide up to 70 km at total electric power on around 2 ½ hours of charging at home. This is without any assistance from the fuel engine, which makes operating the car less expensive and more eco-friendly. In addition, these battery packs come with an eight-year warranty.

The Panamera is intuitive and seamless in its design and function and can travel at speeds up to 130 km on electric power only. It augments the combustion engine to give you even more power and enhance the car’s performance. The 2015 Porsche Panamera S E-Hybrid is designed to make you rethink how hybrids work.
