FROM PORSCHE’S WEBSITE:
We are moving into the future in a progressive and dynamic way. A specially defined pressure point on the accelerator pedal signals the switch between all-electric mode to driving powered by the combustion engine. The combustion engine is fired up when necessary or when the accelerator is depressed beyond the pressure point.
The electric motor provides an additional boost. In coasting mode, the combustion engine is decoupled and switched off, allowing the Cayenne S E-Hybrid to glide for some distance under its own momentum – for a significant reduction in fuel consumption without any compromise in terms of sports performance.
