Porsche has revised the Panamera. The most important innovation is another plug-in hybrid version.

Porsche Panamera 4S e-hybrid Sport Turismo

With the Panamera, Porsche has been aiming to combine a sports car and luxury sedan since 2009. More than 360,000 units of the sporty luxury sedan were sold during this period.

But what is now almost as important: most recently, 60% of all Panamera sold in Europe were equipped with plug-in hybrid technology. The model thus makes an important contribution to reducing the brand’s fleet consumption. The previous success with plug-in hybrids has prompted Porsche to offer another PHEV version with the facelift of the second model generation that has been sold since 2016. The previous Panamera 4 e-Hybrid and Panamera Turbo S e-Hybrid models will follow in a revised version; The 4S e-Hybrid is new as a middle ground between the previous versions.

Porsche Panamera 4S e-hybrid Sport Turismo

With a system output of 560 hp and a maximum torque of 750 Nm, the new hybrid is in the same performance class as the previous Panamera Turbo; while its V8 petrol engine consumed at least 9.3 l/100 km, the Panamera 4S e-Hybrid consumes just 2.0 l/100 km according to the WLTP measurement cycle. As with every plug-in hybrid, whether you can also achieve the fabulous value in everyday life depends solely on how often you charge the battery.

With a full battery, up to 53 kilometers are possible purely electrically; around 30% more than the previous models, since a new battery with a storage capacity of 17.9 kWh is now installed. With the 136 hp electric motor, speeds of up to 140 km/h are possible, so that everyday short-distance journeys can be easily managed electrically with the appropriate charging infrastructure. On longer journeys or when more power is required, the V6 biturbo engine kicks in. It delivers a maximum of 440 hp and makes a major contribution to maximum system performance. If both engines work hard, the sprint to 100 km/h takes 3.7 seconds.

What is more impressive, however, is how smoothly the drive works. The driver hardly notices anything about the complex interaction between the electric motor and the petrol engine; the combustion engine switches on and off without jerking or delaying, and thanks to the electric motor, gas commands are implemented immediately. Whenever possible, the petrol engine is switched off when braking or coasting in order to save petrol even when the battery is empty.

Nevertheless, the new hybrid remains a real Porsche that can deliver real driving pleasure at the touch of a button. Although the large sedan weighs around 2.2 tons due to the complex technology including all-wheel drive and the battery installed under the trunk, the five-meter-long car steers willingly into curves, hardly leans to the side and feels surprisingly agile on winding roads on.

On the other hand, the Panamera also offers a very high level of driving comfort as a 4S e-Hybrid. The interior remains whisper-quiet, even at high speeds, and the air suspension effectively filters out hard impacts even on bad roads.

Of course, this versatility has its price: the Panamera 4S e-Hybrid costs at least 162,300 francs. The entry-level model with a 330 hp petrol engine and all-wheel drive costs from CHF 121,800. The current top – both in terms of performance and price – is marked by the Panamera Turbo S with a 630 hp V8 engine: it costs at least 230,100 francs.

Porsche Panamera 4S e-hybrid

All models have in common the slightly revised look with a newly designed rear light, the new displays with higher resolution in the interior and the modernized infotainment system with more powerful processors. This should prepare the Panamera for the years to come – after all, it has strong competition from its own company in the form of the all-electric Taycan. However, it is still anything but obsolete: the plug-in hybrid models in particular build an important bridge to e-mobility for all those who do not yet want to make the step to a pure e-car.
