Porsche Panamera Sport Turismo e-hybrid concept (2012)
Premiere: September 26, 2012 Paris Motor Show
This is a concept car that led to the 2017 Panamera (971-generation) and more precisely to its Sport Turismo variant.
In Porsche's vocabulary "e-hybrid" means it is a plug-in hybrid. The concept vehicle is designed to be driven in pure electric mode up to a speed of 80 mph/130 km/h mph and can cover distances of over 20 miles/30 km. The electric motor produces about 70 kW, which is around twice as much as in Panamera 970 Hybrid, while the supercharged 3.0V6 Audi engine still produces 245 kW here. The total system peak power is 306 kW and that can accelerate the car to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 5.9 seconds.
While away from the car, the driver can still access and control all key vehicle information via a smart phone. Charge control shows the user just how much electricity the battery has already stored and predicts how much more time the charging process will take.
