Motormouth reviews the new Porsche Cayenne E-Hybrid in sunny South of France…

The age of electrification isn’t coming, because it’s already here – in Europe at least, Porsche now sells more hybrid Panameras than conventional combustion engined cars, and in fact 60 percent of Panameras sold are hybrids.

Instead of just trying to please the taxman, Porsche has made the Panamera flagship a hybrid model, the most powerful in the line-up, and that line of thinking is moving across to the Cayenne SUV portfolio too.

A Cayenne Turbo S E-Hybrid is on the way to head the range, but for now we get the new Cayenne E-Hybrid, powered by a V6 engine and a battery pack that weighs as much as a four-cylinder engine to produce a total of 462 horsepower. For shorter journeys you can drive over 40km in zero-emissions mode and really make a difference in your fuel economy depending on your commute.

But fuel economy isn’t what this is about – Porsche openly uses electrification for performance gains, and from the 918 Spyder hypercar to this new Cayenne E-Hybrid that’s been the case. So, can the third-generation plug-in Cayenne finally stand out by itself as more than a regulatory gimmick? Watch the video to check out Motormouth’s full verdict.
