As I wrote the other day, the “Ludicrous” Tesla Model S is by some standards the quickest production car in history. But if you are going to count some of those cars as “production cars” and strictly take their 0–60 mph times into account (not their 0–30 mph times or their straight acceleration off the […]
What’s the fastest electric car on the market? I think you can guess, but what about #2–17? First of all, let’s get a little perspective in here. A car’s quickness is generally rated by how fast it goes from o mph to 60 mph (or 0 km/h to 100 km/h outside of the USA and a […]
It isn’t exactly a secret that the upcoming Porsche Pajun is being positioned as a Tesla Model S competitor, potentially packing as much as 420 horsepower and 265+ miles of electric driving range. But Porsche isn’t putting all of its eggs into a single electric basket, with AutoCar reporting that a hydrogen fuel cell version […]
Originally posted on CleanTechnica Credit is due to Porsche for being one of the first automakers to embrace plug-in hybrids, but it s been slow to embrace all-electric vehicles, ceding this emerging market to the Tesla Model S. A report from Germany’s Auto Motor und Sport says that’ll change with the introduction of the Porsche […]
The Porsche Pajun will be a new electric sedan that’s just as fast and will go just as far as the Tesla Model S, while wearing that enviable Porsche badge.
Quick Quiz: What Brand Offers the Most Plug-in Cars? Would you be surprised to find out the answer to that question is Porsche? Because it totally is.
Porsche Panamera E-Hybrid sales have surpassed 1,500 units sold worldwide this year, which represents almost 10% of total Panamera sales.
Sales of the Porsche Panamera are up to 13,500 units so far in 2014, a 28% increase. Of those, fully 10% were Panamera E-Hybrids, helping lift sales a lot.
Among the first players in the performance hybrid space was Porsche, and you can expect more hybrids with more horsepower in the coming years.
Unlike some other niche sports car makers, who have resisted government mandates to build hybrid or electric cars, Porsche has fully embraced hybrid technology as a means to deliver even more performance. More importantly, customers are responding favorably, so much so that Porsche expects sales of the next-gen Panamera S E-Hybrid to double.
The expansion of Porsche’s lineup to include a four-door sports car was met with skepticism, but the Porsche Panamera has proven popular with buyers. For 2014 the Panamera is getting a mild facelift, a new biturbo V6, and best of all, a plug-in hybrid variant that isn’t just more fuel efficient, but faster as well.
If any luxury car maker has full-on embraced the potential for hybrid technology, it is Porsche. Their latest concept, the Porsche Panamera Sport Turismo (which I assume is German for “kickass station wagon), is propelled by a plug-in hybrid system that offers up to 67 mpg and 416 horsepower. In the words of George Takei, “Ohhh yessssss.”
