There will also soon be a fully electric version of the Porsche Cayenne.

The series was previously revised and plug-in hybrids were added.

We drove the luxury SUV on a daily basis.

Before the Cayenne arrives as an electric vehicle in around two years, the Zuffenhausen manufacturer has made the third generation of the luxury SUV, which was launched in 2017, ready for the second cycle.

Above all, this means that customers can now also purchase the E-hybrid version of the luxury class ship.

Our test example was powered by the V6 turbo, whose system output, which is generated from the 304 hp combustion engine and a 176 hp electric motor, is stated as 470 hp.

Thanks to the larger selection of models, the success story can be continued, especially since, according to Porsche boss Blume, there will still be a combustion engine version of the Cayenne.

New hybrid version of the Porsche Cayenne: Silent start - the beginning is electric

Nobel SUV with electric drive: The Porsche Cayenne E-Hybrid.

There is no question that this power is enough to get the 2500 kilogram Cayenne up to speed.

From the start, you don't cover the first few meters with a roaring six-cylinder engine, but instead, thanks to the plug-in hybrid, you drive off with almost no engine noise.

And in addition to these meters come kilometers: Without additional recuperation, we managed to move a good 65 kilometers purely electrically, because the combustion engine only switches on at 135 km/h.

The factory specification of 74 kilometers of electric range should therefore be achievable under optimal conditions.

Unfortunately, the free electricity kilometers are covered far too quickly, and then the engine wants feed in the form of Super Plus gasoline.

Without electric support, the value approaches the ten liter mark, but with a harder pace it goes much higher.

Beautiful back: Many drivers will see this view of the 470 hp power SUV.

The Porsche is registered with a top speed of 254 km/h, which it easily reaches.

But it's enough to travel at a much lower speed and still enjoy a virtually free ride.

The mighty vehicle - 4.93 meters long, 1.98 meters wide and 1.70 meters high - apparently makes such an impression that you are not harassed by people behind you honking their lights in the fast lane of the motorway.

It's just a Porsche.

The feel-good vehicle for motorways and 100 km/h roads

It is much more relaxed to walk at a more moderate pace.

You are always confident on the move and always have enough power available, should an intermediate spurt ever be necessary.

The maximum torque specified is a whopping 650 Nm, which is already available at 1400 rpm.

The Porsche SUV is really fun to drive on 100 km/h roads, but – with appropriate respect for physics – it always remains controllable and stable.

At night you are always illuminated thanks to the extra-bright HD matrix light with LED technology (costs 2725.10 euros extra).

The Cayenne's trunk can hold between 627 and 1563 liters of luggage.

Everyday journeys, even in busy urban rush hour traffic and for shopping in the supermarket, can be completed in a relaxed and relaxed manner in the Porsche thanks to sufficient electrical helpers.

The Cayenne becomes a practical transporter whose trunk can accommodate a luggage volume of 627 to 1563 liters.

The only problem is finding the right parking space.

Porsche Cayenne: The steering wheel has many functions

The Cayenne E-Hybrid comes to life by pressing the start button, which is typically located to the left of the steering wheel.

The small gear selector lever is located to the right of the steering wheel, which has a lot of functions and requires a certain amount of getting used to and always very sensitive fingers.

Elegant workplace: Behind the wheel of the Porsche SUV you can eat up the kilometers in a relaxed manner.

The basic vehicle price is 103,377 euros, but the configuration list still has a lot of additional extras to offer, so that you can even exceed the threshold of 150,000 euros with the appropriate number of ticks in the configurator.

The Porsche Cayenne E-Hybrid is by no means an eco-vehicle despite its considerable electric range.

But it is astonishing that it is possible to drive so economically in this vehicle class - even if the technical principle of plug-in hybrids is not without controversy.

You can be excited about the all-electric Cayenne.

With the Taycan, they have sufficiently proven that the Zuffenhausen-based company is able to bring its sports car genes onto the road in fully electric form.
