The new E-hybrid Model is all about Performance

The combination of combustion engine and electric machine is crucial for the peak performance. The combustion engine builds up power and torque as engine speed increases. The maximum torque of the electric machine is available immediately.
The Panamera 4 E-Hybrid has 5 main driving states: electric driving, combustion engine driving, boost, coasting and recuperation, which are activated automatically and according to need. As a result, consistently high overall torque and dynamic responsiveness are available over an extremely wide rpm range. “Performance that you notice immediately, but which also keeps going over long distances.” The mode switch on the steering wheel, derived from the 918 Spyder, and Porsche Communication Management (PCM) are used for selecting between 6 drive modes – and the SPORT Response function for maximum responsiveness.

Hybrid screens show the E-range and battery state of charge, amongst other information. Visually, the Panamera 4 E-Hybrid differs from the other models due to its touches of colour. The brake callipers, instrument cluster needles, border of the “e-hybrid” logos on the front doors and the model designation on the tailgate are in Acid green.
