The Panamera 4 E-Hybrid is a Porsche designed primarily to appeal to your inner accountant, to whose presence we may less readily admit. The ‘4’ in the name denotes the number of driven wheels, while the ‘E’ means it can be plugged into your electricity supply. Being electric doesn’t reduce the amount of thrust. The power still remains.
The all new Porsche Panamera is a lot quicker thanks to its brand new electrically boosted Porsche-designed twin-turbo 2.9-litre V6, which provides 456bhp and a 516lb ft wall of torque at just 1100rpm. It knocks the 0-62mph time back from a brisk 5.5sec to a distinctly rapid 4.6sec. And yet, if official fuel economy figures are to be believed (which they most certainly are not), it will do more than 95mpg. The E-Hybrid will now cover 30 miles on electrical energy alone, versus the previous model’s 22, and it will do 87mph before feeling the need to summon up a little internal combustion assistance. The old car would do just 84mph. For that, thank 134bhp of pure electrical power under your foot, instead of just 95bhp. In electric-only mode, the E-Hybrid is absolutely lovely. Many owners will be able to commute in absolute, untroubled silence and, rightly, that will make this car very tempting.
