Volkswagen Group has produced the most powerful SUVs that are electrically assisted with new eight-cylinder models and can make people forget about Bentley Bentayga and Lamborghini Urus. A new Coupé Body Style Cayenne has been launched as a newcomer who is ready to compete. Since the final release of the Turbo S E-Hybrid version, Porsche has further enhanced the overall performance of the Cayenne SUV.
134 additional bhp! Yes, the 548 bhp turbocharged 4.0-liter V8 engine under the hood is connected to an electric motor to produce extra power. This car shares running gear with the Panamera Turbo SE-Hybrid so we can call it the strongest combined Porsche. This engine produces a total power of 671 bhp and 900 Nm of torque even though the maximum power at the equal time cannot be produced adequately by any unit.
Through the 8-speed Tiptronic gearbox, the all-wheel-drive mechanism receives power. The top speed of 183 mph and 0-62 mph is achieved in 3.8 seconds like what Porsche has claimed, but not only that, because the Chrono Sports Package is also available as standard. The results are amazing because this 2.5 ton SUV is quicker flat out than the latest 911 Carrera and runs 0.6 seconds faster than the lightweight Cayman GT4 at 0-62 mph. The boot volume is reduced slightly to 645 liters or 500 liters in the Coupé model because on the rear axle a 14.1 kWh battery is installed which supplies power to the electric motor. If you use conventional household plugs then you will need about 6 hours to recharge the batteries whereas if you use a standard 7.2kW charger then you will need 2 hours 24 minutes. With a speed of 84 mph and a distance of 25 miles on electric power, what can be done by this super SUV, as stated by Porsche?
When the battery starts to weaken or if the throttle is down then the engine unit will kick in, but the car will start with the default power mode. To manage the balance between direct performance and hybrid efficiency, the driver can run Sport Plus, Sport, E-Hybrid, or E-Power modes, thanks to the drive selector switch mounted on the steering wheel.
Included in the regen function, ceramic brakes are a complement to the new Cayenne range-topping by default. Adjustable-height air suspension is connected to the standard 3-chamber, the spread of settings is combined with the adaptive damper by Porsche Active Suspension Management. They measure a large 440 millimeters in front and 410 millimeters in the back. Although only in April 2020 WLTP CO2 will apply where the value rises to 122g / km, the Turbo S E-Hybrid produces CO2 emissions of 90 g / km and is able to return 52.3 mg (WLTP), thanks to electricity assistance tech.
Brake calipers and fluorescent green badging are gifts to mark the Cayenne Turbo S E-Hybrid from other line-up members, this is just a little about styling. With prices starting at 123,349 euros, the first delivery will start in October and if you are interested you can also order a newcomer now.
