Porsche Cayenne S E-Hybrid Coupe 2024

The E-Hybrid variants of the Cayenne seamlessly blend performance and efficiency through innovative approaches.The powertrains have undergone comprehensive enhancements, resulting in extended range, increased system output, and reduced charging times.At the core of the E-Hybrid system is a new electric motor featuring optimized coil turns, a new magnet, and a pulse inverter with an increased phase current, delivering a 30 kW boost to electric power (130 kW/176 PS) and an additional 50 Nm of torque (450 Nm). The revamped motor enables a 30% increase in regenerative braking power, recuperating up to 88 kW at speeds as low as 2 km/h. Integrated into the updated eight-speed automatic transmission, the compact unit enhances overall efficiency.
A new brake booster enhances driving experience by ensuring a smooth transition between recuperation brake and friction brake, providing a consistent pedal feel for optimal braking power in various driving situations.
All new Cayenne E-Hybrid models come equipped with a larger high-voltage battery, boasting an 8 kWh capacity increase to 25.9 kWh. Paired with a new 11 kW on-board charger, the charging process is expedited to under two-and-a-half hours at a suitable power source.
The driving modes are designed for intelligent and efficient energy usage. For instance, the Sport and Sport Plus programs optimize the charge levels of the traction battery, reducing the frequency of internal combustion engine recharging for improved overall efficiency. The E-Charge program incorporates intelligent charging strategies, alternating between hybrid and combustion modes based on driving conditions.
Cayenne S E-Hybrid:
The Porsche Cayenne S E-Hybrid combines the dynamic features of the Cayenne S with the progressive drive concept of the Cayenne E-Hybrid. With a three-liter V6 turbo engine delivering 260 kW (353 PS) and an additional electric motor, the system output reaches 382 kW (519 PS). Accelerating from 0 to 100 km/h in 4.7 seconds and reaching a top speed of 263 km/h, it offers an electric range of up to 90 km (EAER City).

Cayenne Turbo E-Hybrid:
The Porsche Cayenne Turbo E-Hybrid, the flagship model, features a powerful four-liter V8 twin-turbo engine combined with a new electric motor, delivering a combined power output of 544 kW (739 PS) and 950 Nm of torque. Accelerating from 0 to 100 km/h in 3.7 seconds and reaching a top speed of 295 km/h, it stands out as the top-of-the-line SUV sports car. The V8 twin-turbo engine undergoes extensive revisions to reduce fuel consumption and emissions, enhancing efficiency and performance.
Both the Cayenne S E-Hybrid and Cayenne Turbo E-Hybrid come standard with adaptive air suspension equipped with new two-chamber, two-valve technology, offering increased comfort and driving safety across a broader range of characteristics. The innovative two-valve technology allows independent adjustment of rebound and compression stages, providing a noticeable increase in comfort and driving performance.The Porsche Cayenne S E-Hybrid and Cayenne Turbo E-Hybrid are equipped with adaptive air suspension across all variants, featuring the new two-chamber, two-valve technology. In the Porsche Active Suspension Management (PASM) system, controlled vibration dampers on the front and rear axles now incorporate two valves for independent adjustment of rebound and compression stages, resulting in a significant enhancement of comfort and driving safety. This ensures a broader spectrum between Comfort and Sport Plus characteristics.
The demands on dampers during compression and rebound while driving differ, especially between the wheel and body. Balancing smooth and comfortable body movements for passengers with effective damping for traction, the new two-valve technology effectively resolves this conflict. Depending on the situation, the compression stage valve can adjust variable damping forces independently of the rebound stage valve, leading to a noticeable increase in comfort, smoother vehicle body motion, improved handling performance, and better support for rolling and pitching movements as standard.
The adaptive air suspension introduces a variable spring rate with improved performance over its predecessor. Using two air chambers connected or disconnected by a valve, it provides a particularly comfortable spring and damper characteristic for slow driving over obstacles. Simultaneously, the more dynamic spring rate and two-valve technology significantly enhance driving precision and performance while reducing body movements.
Standard equipment in the Cayenne S E-Hybrid and Cayenne Turbo E-Hybrid includes speed-dependent Porsche Power Steering Plus, with the Cayenne S E-Hybrid Coupe featuring it exclusively. The Cayenne Turbo E-Hybrid also comes with Porsche Torque Vectoring Plus (PTV) and 10-piston calipers on the front axle. Optional features include Porsche Dynamic Chassis Control, rear-axle steering, and the Porsche Ceramic Composite Brake (PCCB), along with newly developed 22-inch performance tires.
Both E-Hybrid variants of the Cayenne reflect fundamental upgrades introduced in early 2023. The redesigned front end, arched wings, and a new bonnet emphasize width, while the headlights convey a technical impression. The rear now adopts the lower number plate position from the Coupe.
Internally, all new Cayenne models prioritize a driver-oriented control concept. Driving-related functions are located on or near the steering wheel, with assistance systems controlled via a lever on the left side. The automatic gear selector lever is placed on the dashboard to the right of the steering wheel.
The Porsche Driver Experience introduces a digitally enriched driving experience, with a 10.9-inch display for the passenger side, offering access to performance data, infotainment, and, where permitted, video streaming.
Cayenne S E-Hybrid:
Featuring 20-inch alloy wheels, the Cayenne S E-Hybrid offers optional 20-inch AeroDesign wheels, twin tailpipes, the Silver exterior package (SUV), the Black exterior package (Coupe), stainless steel pedal pads, Sport Chrono package, and a new mode switch in the 12.6-inch digital instrument cluster.
Cayenne Turbo E-Hybrid:
The top models, both SUV and Coupe, feature a sporty Turbo front-end design, enlarged air intakes, rear trim panel in the exterior color, wider wings, exclusive 21-inch alloy wheels, Acid Green brake calipers, and new HD-Matrix LED headlights. Inside, the Turbo model boasts aluminum inlays, a Race-Tex microfiber roof lining, heated GT sports steering wheel, mode switch, 18-way adjustable leather sports seats, and a BOSE® Surround Sound system as standard.
