The Porsche Cayenne will be arriving with the third generation in the fall of 2018 as a base Cayenne, Cayenne S and Cayenne Turbo. The most complex and interesting is the upcoming Cayenne S E-Hybrid. This model has 462hp and 516lb.-ft. of torque from both the 3.0L turbo V6 and a 14.1kwh battery. This new Porsche can run on electric power for up to 44km before reverting back to a seamless hybrid system.The Hybrid system uses a conventional 9-speed automatic and power goes to all four wheels. This new Cayenne is quick too, a run to 100km/h takes juts 5 second almost a full second faster than the previous version. Just like all the other Cayenne models, the S E-Hybrid can be equipped with air suspension, Porsche Dynamic Chassis Control and Active Rear Steering. The Cayenne is the best family choice in the Porsche lineup as it offers plenty of room for a family compared to the rather small Macan. The price os this electrified model is roughly $92,000, the same as the regular turbo S model.
I look forward to seeing a Macan in E-Hybrid form. I've driven the new-gen Panameras extensively, including the new Sport Turismo, and I have a huge complaint about the new black control panel around the gear shifter that replaces all those buttons of the past: when the sun shines on it (and it will!), it can be blinding because it is too shiny. They need to make it a rougher matted finish to cut down on those reflections. There was never a problem with the old buttons reflecting sunlight into your face! I will have to have a cloth ready to put over the button panel there when the sun is creating huge reflection glare.
I like how u say the release times, good we have a canadian autmotive utuber. So the cayenne and cayenne s is coming this summer but the e hybrid coming next spring? Also take in to the fact that the mission e is suppose to come out the end of 2019
Good review. Thanks Zak. Question; is it possible through the use of hybrid function, the internal combustion motor plus regenerative braking provides sufficient power to top-up the battery for the e-motors, in other words, you could drive this vehicle, and get some of the distance out of e-motors, without ever needing to electric charge?
My cousin owned a 4.4? V8 diesel Cayenne. The exhaust note was something else. Reminded me of a V8 petrol in a lovely old speed boat. Gorgeous note. The performance was extraordinary. I owned an Audi RS5 and it went great. But that (2017) diesel Porsche had way more kick. Simple Stephen test; there’s a right hand, climbing corner about 70 degrees, after a near stop near my house in rural New Zealand. If I kicked the RS5 in that stretch of roadway, it was fun but never challenging. You had to keep your wits about you but no big deal. I tried that approach in the diesel Cayenne one day and could have come to some level of grief. Way more kick than the normally-aspirated Audi V8. For what it’s worth
Great review Zak, always looking forward to seeing you and the reviews. One pointer for your concern regarding the black glossy panels that you mention in many of your videos, would be to have a small good quality microfiber cleaner cloth. This idea has transformed it for me. I love black glossy panels now since I can have them cleaned in a matter of seconds. Cheers.
Always interesting to see reviews from multiple youtubers generated from press events. The scenery and actual vehicles can be the same, but the reviewer interpretations (and camera vantage points) make the experienced videos unique.
While the Cayenne is out of my budget range, I appreciate hearing about the vehicle details because the tech will eventually trickle down AND it is good to know about the higher grade components to understand what you are / are not getting in lower priced vehicles made for the unwashed masses.
