There are talks heard of the 2018 Porsche Cayenne Turbo S E and if the facts from these sources are correct, then this new model will be a hybrid one. This hybrid will follow the ways of the 2017 Porsche Panamera, and will also have an S E-Hybrid along with it.
In fact, the Porsche CEO Oliver Blume spoke to the Australian Publication Motoring at the Geneva auto show and confirmed that the Porsche Cayenne SUV will indeed be getting a Turbo S E-Hybrid model of its own.
2018 Porsche Cayenne Turbo S E – What Should You Expect?
The 2018 Porsche Cayenne Turbo S E is a 5-seater, and therefore a great choice for hybridization as the CEO believes that the larger models are more suited for hybridization, because of their bigger size and plug-in drivetrains. These drivetrains allow for the driving to be done without any dangers of tail-pipe emissions, making them especially suitable for urban roads and the city environment.
Keeping this in mind, it is unlikely that the Macan or the 911 will undergo hybridization and the plan also remains far-fetched for the next generations.
The Hybrid Engine You’ve Been Waiting For
This hybrid assistance is aimed at providing the car with big power. The Turbo S E-Hybrid that is being talked about is the same Biturbo 4 liter V8. Not many details have been shared about this. But the hybrid assistance is estimated to bring the same 680 HP and 627-pound-feet.
The Porsche CEO further added that their idea was to promote the electric power and also to make the top of the line model a hybrid version.
If everything goes according to plan, then the 2018 Porsche Cayenne Turbo S E might just be the fastest SUV out in the market. That means that it needs to beat Tesla’s 3.3-second sprint to 60 mph and Bentley’s 187 mph top speed. Of course, with the plans on schedule, the battle will soon get exciting.
Panamera and the Cayenne: The Difference
There will be a difference between the hybridization of the Panamera and the Cayenne, of course. While Panamera’s plug-in hybrid model focuses on economy, the 2018 Porsche Cayenne Turbo S E will link electric motor. This will resulting ability to reach accelerations of 0 to 60mph in just 3.4 seconds.
It is exciting to see what new performances the 2018 Porsche Cayenne Turbo S E will deliver. This model is gearing to be built as a stylish powerhouse that will draw the attention of all car lovers.
