Porsche Launches New V6 Panamera E-Hybrid Models

Thriftier E-Hybrid Panameras arrive

  • 2025 Panamera gets two new hybrid models

  • E-Hybrid adds up to 536 hp

Porsche is pouncing with a pair of new Panamera models. The two new E-Hybrid models get the V6 instead of a V8 but should still offer plenty of performance.

When Porsche launched the new Panamera last fall, it came with a very small lineup of engines. You could get a base V6 or a V8 Turbo E-Hybrid, but not much in between. It’s Porsche, though, so we knew more would be coming. Now they have arrived.

The two new models include the Porsche Panamera 4 E-Hybrid and the Porsche Panamera 4S E-Hybrid.

Both get the same 2.9L twin-turbo V6, and it’s a version of the V6 found in the gas-only base car. But where the gas model gets 348 hp, the Panamera 4 E-Hybrid uses it for just 300.

It’s ok, though, because of the hybrid motor assist. That electric motor boots total output to 463 hp and 479 lb-ft. That’s 8 hp more than the previous-generation Panamera 4 E-Hybrid, and Porsche says it should break four seconds to 100 km/h.

Get the Panamera 4S E-Hybrid, and you get the full 348 hp from the gas engine. Add the 187 hp electric motor, and you have a total of 536 hp and 553 lb-ft of torque. Which is actually 16 hp less than the last-gen 4S E-Hybrid.

The battery is the same 21.8 kWh pack as you’ll find in the Panamera Turbo E-Hybrid. Thanks to less power and less weight, the range is up to 96 km on the WLRP cycle for the 4 and 92 in the 4S. Charging speeds are also faster, and Porsche says the cars have better throttle response because of a new motor design.

Like the rest of the Panamera lineup, these V6 PHEVs get adaptive air suspension and active dampers. They’ll share the same new bodywork and new cabin. 10-piston iron brakes will be standard, but Porsche Ceramic Composite Brakes will also be offered.

Expect the 2025 Porsche Panamera 4 E-Hybrid and 4S E-Hybrid models to arrive at dealers later this year. They’re expected to arrive in Europe in Q2.
