The 2020 Porsche Cayenne Turbo S E-Hybrid Is Coming

Green electrified power now rules at Porsche. Like its Panamera brother, the Porsche Cayenne Turbo S E-Hybrid will sit at the very top of the product line with lots of power.

This is no trend, nor is it the future. No longer is it necessary to endow massive displacement V8s or V10s and V12s with turbos to reach 700-horsepower power levels. Well, sure the new the Porsche Cayenne Turbo S E-Hybrid will be powered by a twin-turbocharge 4.0-litre V8 but that’s only half the story.

As we very well know, Porsche and the Volkswagen Auto Group are hard at work electrifying everything. The Group’s luxury sport brand is busting itself up to quickly produce the highly and hotly-anticipated Taycan and Taycan CrossTurismo but in the meantime, Porsche is building a bridge with the Panamera and Cayenne Turbo S E-Hybrid plug-ins.

The 14-kWh lithium-ion battery with on-board charger, electric motor and aforementioned V8 combine to produce 680-horsepower and 626 lb.-ft. of torque. This kind of power should be enough to launch the hefty Cayenne to 100 km/h in no more 3.5-seconds. At one point, this would have been enough to declare the fastest SUV but there’s this Tesla Model X and Lamborghini Urus out there…

Pricing has not yet been announced however it should hover around the $200k to start. As well, we’re not sure when we’ll see it but odds are on the Frankfurt Auto Show which takes place in mid-September.
