Porsche has announced plans to introduce a new hybrid at the Geneva Motor Show.
While the company is staying mum on specifics, the model will likely be the Panamera Hybrid. It is expected to use the same powertrain as the Cayenne S Hybrid, which means we can expect a supercharged 3.0-liter V6 with 333 hp (249 kW / 337 PS) as well as an electric motor that develops 47 hp (34 kW / 48 PS). This will likely give the car a combined output of 380 hp (283 kW / 385 PS) and 428 lb-ft (580 Nm) of torque.
More importantly, the Panamera Hybrid will be able to run on electricity alone and have an average fuel consumption of less than 9 L/100km (26.1 mpg US). If that doesn't impress you, the electric motor and gasoline engine can work together to provide additional power under hard acceleration.
