The Porsche Panamera e-hybrid...a charging how-to guide
Initially available in 2013 and with a 2016 facelift, the Porsche Panamera e-hybrid is a full-sized luxury SUV.
The most eco-friendly vehicle in the Porsche family, producing only 193 grams of Co2 per kilometre, the Panamera e-hybrid still maintains a top speed of 270km/hr.
As a plug-in e-hybrid, the Panamera is powered by a 71 kW electric motor, with a total system power of 310 kW. Top speed is 135 km/h in all-electric mode, and its time from 100 km/h (62 mph) is 5.2 seconds. It's 9.4 kWh lithium-ion battery pack is capable of delivering a range of approximately 32 km.
While the look of the earlier models of this ICE or PHEV vehicle was absolutely panned by the original Top Gear team, we think it's a good looker with plenty of grunt!
