2015 Porsche Cayenne S E-Hybrid Plug-in Luxury SUV Specs
The 2015 Porsche Cayenne S E-Hybrid comes this fall. After its release on November 1, we will be able to see the new hybrid Cayenne on the roads and experience its new features. The 2015 Cayenne S E-Hybrid differs from its predecessor, the Cayenne S Hybrid. The S E-Hybrid is a plug-in hybrid, but that’s not the only novelty. It also comes with improved equipment and powertrain. There are also some styling changes, which are common to the 2015 Cayenne S E-Hybrid and the other versions with different powertrains. The price of the 2015 Porsche Cayenne S E-Hybrid isn’t exactly the most affordable, but having in mind that this vehicle is a luxury SUV with green powertrain, its starting price at $77,395 with destination charge included isn’t surprising.
2015 Porsche Cayenne S E-Hybrid Plug-in Powertrain Specs
The hybrid setup of the 2015 Porsche Cayenne S E-Hybrid consists of a supercharged 3.0-liter V6 engine and an electric motor. While the V6 delivers 333 horsepower, the electric motor is able to produce 95 horsepower. Of course, there’s a lithium-ion battery pack whose capacity is 10.8 kWh. Although the S E-Hybrid’s all-electric drive range is still secret, we do know that during the all-electric drive the new hybrid Cayenne can reach 78 mph. The hybrid powertrain installed in this SUV can provide top speed of 151 mph and acceleration from 0 to 62 mph in 5.4 seconds. Since a lot of the E-Hybrid’s specs aren’t known at this point, we don’t know its EPA fuel economy.

After the Panamera S E-Hybrid and the 918 Spyder, the 2015 Cayenne S E-Hybrid comes as a luxury plug-in hybrid SUV with great performance. At the same time, this SUV is a worthy addition to the Cayenne lineup. Aside from the 2015 Cayenne S E-Hybrid, there is the Cayenne Diesel, the Cayenne S and the Cayenne Turbo.
