Boasting 500 kW of power generated by a combustion engine plus an electric hybrid powertrain, the Cayenne S E-Hybrid employs a twin-turbocharged 4.0-litre V8 of the Cayenne Turbo.

The electric motor gushes out 100 kW of power – it is the same motor that powers the Cayenne E-Hybrid.

Porsche claims the S E-Hybrid can dash from a standstill to 100 km/h in a claimed 3.6 seconds before hitting a top speed at 294 km/h.

Standard equipment includes huge carbon-ceramic brakes, active anti-roll bars, a torque-vectoring rear end, and the Porsche’s Sport Chrono package, which adds the likes of a steering-wheel-mounted mode selector switch and launch control.

The top-end model also includes a 7.2-kilowatt charging cable that allows the crossover’s 14.1-kilowatt-hour battery pack to get a full charge in less than two-and-a-half hours on a 240-volt plug with a 50-amp circuit.

There are also Hybrid Auto, Sport, and Sport Plus modes, as well as E-Charge and E-Hold settings, the latter of which maintain the battery pack’s state of charge or use the V8 engine to add juice on the go.

The electric driving range is said to be somewhere in the 40 km bracket.
