Porsche Panamera Hybrid Tests Confirm: 416 HP, 53 MPG!

Panamera S E-Hybrid

When Porsche announced its Panamera Hybrid earlier this year, it made wild claims about a 400 hp sports sedan with a top speed of nearly 300 km/h that gave back fuel economy figures that would make TDi Jetta owners jealous. Well, here we are – a little more than a month later and Porsche’s tests have confirmed it: the 2014 Panamera hybrid burns just 4.4L of fuel per 100 km of road traveled. That’s 53 mpg, kids!

As part of the international launch of the new Panamera S Hybrid E (the model’s official name), a number of Porsche’s test units were driven 1,200 km (over 700 miles) with as many as 4 passengers per vehicle. Combined, the “fleet’s” average fuel consumption of was just over that 4.4L / 100 km mark. That’s not all, though: under the right conditions, some of the Porsches driven that day hit 2.8: / 100 km … which works out to more than 80 mpg!

Sounds like Porsche really does have this green tech thing figured out with the Panamera hybrid, no?

    So, the author related some VAGUE reason for a retest of claimed stats. MAYBE there was a challenge made(, not detailed.) In any event , a retest by the SAME company should INVARIABLY yield the same or better results – Porsche’s reputation is at stake there.

    The proof will be forthcoming when and IF it’s on the market and INDEPENDANT tests are made.

      All caps/shouting is so low class. Spruce yourself up, please.

      Personally I think the information damned interesting. Porsche knows how to do math as well as anyone.

        So ? YOU intimately KNOW about low class – it exudes from your every word TROLL.

        NO, pompous ahoe, you give NO orders here.

        Personally, I KNOW you’re a narcissist.

          Here’s a fact for you to chew on.

          More personal attacks and you will be shown the door.
