Porsche Cayenne S E-Hybrid Debuting At Paris Motor Show — Yours For “Only” $76,400

Porsche’s newest EV — the 2015 Cayenne S E Hybrid — will be officially debuted at the upcoming Paris Motor Show, according to a new press release.

The new model is essentially just a hybrid electric version of the company’s already available Cayenne S Hybrid, with the most obvious change to the original being the addition of a 10.8-kWh lithium-ion battery.



In an interview with Autoblog Green, Porsche’s Calvin Kim stated that the model’s electric-only range “is still pending certification” — but the general consensus is that it’ll “be somewhere between 11 and 22 miles, depending on the style of driving and route topography.”

Here are more details: “Other than the new battery, the electric motor has been upgraded to a 95 horsepower/70 kW unit (up from the 47-hp/34 kW motor in the Cayenne hybrid without a plug). The overall powertrain now puts out a total of 416 hp and can go from 0 to 60 miles per hour in 5.4 seconds. Alongside the electric parts, there’s a 3.0-liter supercharged V6 engine and an 8-speed automatic transmission. You can find all of the E-Hybrid’s available specs here and stay tuned for more information on the new plug-in SUV when it makes its debut at the Paris Motor Show in early October. The SUV will go on sale in the US on November 1, 2014 with a starting MSRP of $76,400, plus a destination charge of $995.”

Hard to say where exactly this model fits into the market. It’s priced about the same as the Tesla Model S and presumably more than the Tesla Model X, but it has its own benefits. And a Porsche is a Porsche. It seems likely that it’ll probably hit the relatively modest sales targets set for it by Porsche.

I don't like paywalls. You don't like paywalls. Who likes paywalls? Here at CleanTechnica, we implemented a limited paywall for a while, but it always felt wrong — and it was always tough to decide what we should put behind there. In theory, your most exclusive and best content goes behind a paywall. But then fewer people read it! We just don't like paywalls, and so we've decided to ditch ours. Unfortunately, the media business is still a tough, cut-throat business with tiny margins. It's a never-ending Olympic challenge to stay above water or even perhaps — gasp — grow. So ...
