Porsche Panamera V-6 E-Hybrids With Up To 536 HP Will Be Added in 2024

Porsche debuted the most recent iteration of the Panamera last autumn, which features improved styling, a redesigned interior, and more horsepower. Porsche only offered the base V-6 and the top-of-the-line V-8 Turbo E-Hybrid at first, but these days the lineup includes a variety of hybrid powertrains. This autumn, the V-6-powered Panamera 4 E-Hybrid and 4S E-Hybrid will go on sale, taking a position beneath the Turbo-badged variant.

Modernised Engines

The new E-Hybrid versions are powered by a 2.9-liter V-6 turbocharged engine that has been updated. While the non-hybrid base Panamera’s V-6 generates 348 horsepower, the six-cylinder engine in the 4 E-Hybrid only delivers 300 horsepower. However, when the electric motor of the hybrid system is included, the output increases to 463 horsepower and 479 pound-feet of torque. With 8 more horsepower than the current 4 E-Hybrid, Porsche predicts the 2024 model will reach 60 mph in 3.9 seconds.

However, the turbo V-6’s 348 horsepower is fully unleashed when you upgrade to the 4S E-Hybrid. The 4S E-Hybrid generates a formidable 536 horsepower overall when paired with the electric motor, which can generate up to 187 horsepower. This is actually 16 less horsepower than the previous 4S E-Hybrid. Even with its unchanged torque of 553 pound-feet, the 4S E-Hybrid manages to reach 60 mph in a claimed 3.5 seconds. The top speed of 180 mph is 6 mph faster than the non-S variant.

The new 21.8-kWh battery that powers the electric motor is the same one that is included in the Turbo versions. According to Porsche, the battery can be fully charged in 2.5 hours using the 11-kW onboard AC charger. With a torque output of up to 331 pound-feet, the e-motor is housed in the PDK gearbox housing and is incorporated into the same oil circulation, which contributes to weight savings.

The E-Hybrid is expected to achieve an EPA-rated electric range of approximately 30 miles, and it can operate exclusively on electricity up until the battery hits a specific point of discharge. Next, the Panamera enters Hybrid Auto mode, which uses navigation and driving style to determine how best to combine the petrol engine and electric motor. While the E-Charge setting uses the engine to recharge the battery up to 80% while it is moving faster than 34 mph, the E-Hold mode maintains the battery level. This being a Porsche, of course, there are additional Sport and Sport Plus modes.

Additional Important Information

Standard equipment on all new Panameras is a two-chamber air suspension system with adjustable dampers. Additionally, the E-Hybrid can be equipped with Active Ride, which uses the 400-volt electrical architecture to regulate a hydraulic pump at each damper to reduce body movements caused by bumps and maintain a level ride during rapid driving. Additionally, it makes it easier to enter and exit the car by allowing it to raise and lower.

There are minor visual variations across the models. The Panamera 4S E-Hybrid has 20-inch wheels, red brake callipers, and silver tailpipes, whereas the Panamera 4 E-Hybrid has normal 19-inch wheels with black callipers. The 10-piston brake callipers on the 4S are also available in acid green and black, and if you choose the 21-inch wheels, Porsche carbon ceramic composite brake rotors can be installed.

The cost of the new E-Hybrid cars is high. The Panamera 4 E-Hybrid starts at $117,495 whereas the standard V-6 non-hybrid Panamera costs $101,550. If you choose the 4S E-Hybrid, the base price drops to $128,795—roughly $7K more than the 2023 E-Hybrid. Orders will be accepted through the end of March, with delivery scheduled to start this autumn.
