This is the concept car of the next generation Panamera to be launched in 2016.

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 130 km/h / 80 mph and can cover distances of over 20 miles / 30 km. The new 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 from 0-100 km/h (0-62 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.
