2025 Porsche Panamera plug-in hybrids ensure more electric kilometers

Porsche hasn’t forgotten the plug-in hybrids.

Although the sports car brand only unveiled one earlier this month revised Taycan EV 2025 This offers more range, better efficiency and stronger acceleration and will be launched soon fully electric Macan SUVThere are a whole range of additional plug-ins in the pipeline.

Porsche announced back in November that its third-generation Panamera lineup would be rounded out with a plug-in hybrid Turbo-E-Hybrid version with 670 hp and a larger battery pack. Further details have now also been announced on an updated range of 4 and 4S-E Hybrid models, expanding the part of the range based on this technology.

Above all, Porsche has opted for a significantly higher capacity battery and a stronger, more responsive electric motor for 2025, which will lead to more range and higher power from the drive trains.

The previously announced 2025 Panamera PHEVs feature all-wheel drive and a gross capacity of 25.9 kWh, as well as a new electric motor that delivers 187 hp and 331 lb-ft of torque. The Panamera 4 E-Hybrid’s total system output is up to 463 hp and 479 lb-ft, while the Panamera 4S E-Hybrid versions take it to 536 hp and 553 lb-ft. This results in 0-100 km/h acceleration in 3.9 and 3.5 seconds, with corresponding top speeds of 174 and 180 miles per hour. The previously announced top-of-the-range Turbo E-Hybrid can accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in 3.2 seconds and has a top speed of 310 mph.

According to Porsche, the engine has also been more efficiently integrated into the housing of the 8-speed dual-clutch transmission, which Porsche calls PDK. It can now recuperate up to 88 kW, increasing the electric range and potentially resulting in more brake regeneration that can be felt by the driver.

The changes to the 2025 model are the latest in a series of moves that make the “plug-in” portion of its plug-in hybrids more useful. Back in 2018, Porsche relaunched its plug-in hybrids with superior performance in mind – and did so PHEV the top performance model. There have been a number of incremental improvements to this plug-in hybrid. The 2021 Panamera Plug-in Hybrid Range I received an update that increased the battery capacity from 14.1 kWh to 17.9 kWh. This increased the previous electric range from 14 miles to 19 miles and enabled faster acceleration.

Porsche points out that in addition to the hybrid auto and all-electric E-Power modes, the 2025 Panamera E-Hybrid offers an E-Hold mode, which saves the battery charge for later, and an E-Charge mode, which which charges the battery up to 80% when driving at 55 km/h or more, as well as Sport and Sport Plus modes that optimize the battery charge level to 20% and 30%, respectively. With a new 11 kW onboard charger, the Panamera PHEV can be fully charged using an appropriate 240-volt AC wallbox in approximately 2.5 hours.

An active suspension system called Porsche Active Ride is optionally available for the Panamera, which uses air suspension as well as hydraulics to counteract body movements and keep the body straight. The brakes have also been improved.

On these models, a revised interior layout moves the gear selector away from the center console and adds a new set of displays modeled after the Taycan – or the new one Cayenne plug-in hybrid SUV– with a 12.6-inch instrument display and 10.9-inch touchscreens in the center and available on the passenger side.

The Porsche Panamera 4 E-Hybrid starts at $117,495 and the Panamera 4S E-Hybrid will have an MSRP of $128,795, both including a $1,995 delivery fee. According to Porsche, orders for both models will be possible in March, with deliveries scheduled to begin this fall.

With the possible exception of the 911 sports car, that’s what Porsche aspires to almost purely electric by 2030. In addition to the Macan EV, these include an electric sports car, an electric Cayenne and a Porsche EV flagship. Back in 2017, Porsche promised that half of its global sales, measured by volume, would would be connected by 2025. With the Cayenne and Panamera available in all their plug-in hybrid variants, and the Macan and Taycan on the market by then, even this shorter-term goal still seems within reach.
