Porsche’s 2019 Cayenne E-Hybrid is a powerhouse SUV

German automaker Porsche’s 2019 Cayenne E-Hybrid SUV gives a remarkable peek forward into the company’s ongoing electric car efforts. With Porsche committed to making substantial investments into electric vehicles (EVs) over the next five years, the 2019 Cayenne E-Hybrid is apparently a precursor of the automaker’s future EVs.

The Porsche 2019 Cayenne E-Hybrid SUV is a powerhouse performance car. It underscores an impressive balancing act by the automaker, in terms of offering a performance-boosting hybrid which is capable providing a notably efficient, zero-emissions driving.

Porsche is considered a purist brand which its loyalists may opine should produce only gas-powered cars. 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.

The 2019 Cayenne E-Hybrid SUV has an E-Power mode for being driven in a fully electric mode. The SUV boasts a massive battery which offers amazing capacity enhancement over the last Cayenne redesign. As a result, the 2019 Cayenne E-Hybrid is capable of running on electric power only for over 40 kilometers (25-plus miles), with the gas engine getting turned on by itself when the car’s speed exceeds 83 mph.
