According to a recent report, Porsche's next-generation hybrid system will be lighter and more powerful than the one used in the Panamera S E-Hybrid.
Porsche recently introduced the Panamera S E-Hybrid, but new details are starting to emerge about the company's next-generation hybrid system.
Autocar says the company is developing a new hybrid module that combines the electric motor and clutches into a single unit. It has reportedly been designed to fit into all future products including the 911.
The system is slated to use a more powerful electric motor that is air and liquid cooled. We can also expect an improved battery and a lighter wiring loom that reportedly uses aluminum instead of copper wire.
The system could also support induction charging which would eliminate the need to plug in the car to recharge the battery.
Porsche is also rumored to be working on an advanced engine management system that will use GPS and other data to enable the car to select the optimal drive mode for the given situation.
