German automaker Porsche’s 2019 Cayenne E-Hybrid SUV gives a remarkable peek forward into the company’s ongoing electric car efforts.

However, the automaker’s experiments in hybrid technology have led to the emergence of its E-hybrid plug-in hybrid drivetrain, which it has initially used as a performance boost, and then as a green technology.
In line with the automaker’s approach, the 2019 Cayenne E-Hybrid SUV is equipped with a 340-hp turbo V6 engine, along with an electric motor adding 122 hp to the system, in order to deliver a 462 hp total output.
