Porsche introduces the next Panamera generation

The Porsche Panamera is entering its third model generation. Porsche is planning a total of four plug-in hybrid drives for the new Panamera, which offer more power, range and efficiency than before, but no battery-electric variant is on the horizon yet. (Update at the end of the article)

At the market launch, the Panamera Turbo E-Hybrid with a system output of 500 kW (680 hp), to which a newly developed electric motor contributes 140 kW, will initially be available as a part-time electric vehicle. The battery capacity is now 25.9 kWh. This enables an electric range of up to 91 kilometres in the combined WLTP cycle.

The new Porsche Panamera is now available to order. The Panamera Turbo E-Hybrid costs from 192,500 euros, significantly more than the combustion variant at €107,800. The vehicles will be manufactured at Porsche’s facility in Leipig, Germany, and deliveries in Europe are scheduled to start in March 2024.

Last year, there had been rumours that Porsche would release the Panamera as a battery-electric vehicle, however, it seems that an emissions-free variant will be some time in development.

Update 20 February 2024

Porsche is expanding the Panamera model range with two new plug-in hybrids, adding the Panamera 4 E-Hybrid and Panamera 4S E-Hybrid to the portfolio. For the electric part of the drive, the two latest versions utilise the same components as the Panamera Turbo E-Hybrid. The output of the electric motor is thus 140 kW. The battery has an energy content of 25.9 kWh (gross) and can be charged in 2:39 hours with up to 11 kW.

In contrast to the Panamera Turbo E-Hybrid with the V8 petrol engine, the new models are fitted with a 2.9-litre V6 biturbo, offering 224 kW. The system output of the Panamera 4 E-Hybrid is 346 kW. In the Panamera 4S E-Hybrid, the combustion engine’s output increases to 260 kW, and the system output increases to 400 kW. In the combined WLTP cycle, the two new drive versions achieve purely electric ranges of over 90 kilometres.

Both models can already be ordered. Deliveries in Europe will start in Q2/2024.
