The single most important distinction between this model and the Panamera 4 Sport Turismo is the 'E-Hybrid' badging. With the E-Hybrid Sport Turismo, Porsche has been able to combine performance, ample space and fuel economy into one family-friendly package. Like the sedan variant, the Panamera 4 E-Hybrid Sport Turismo is driven by a hybrid powertrain featuring technology from the 918 Spyder.
The Porsche Panamera 4 E-Hybrid Executive is specially tailored for those who enjoy spending time in the back seat. The body has been lengthened by 15cm, creating valuable space for rear passengers in particular. It's essentially a long-wheelbase version of the Panamera, with enhancements like eight-way power adjustment for the rear seats, heated rear seats, and power sunblinds for passengers in the back.
The Panamera 4 E-Hybrid still gets the 2.9-litre V6 - from the non-hybrid variant - that's good for 325 hp and 331 lb-ft of torque. In addition to that, there's an electric motor and battery combo that supply an extra 134 hp and 295 lb-ft of torque. In all, the Panamera 4 E-Hybrid boasts a maximum combined output of 455 hp and 516 lb-ft of torque, pushing the car well into sports car territory. The car weighs almost 5,000 lbs but will still accelerate to 60 mph in an impressive 4.2 seconds with the Sport Chrono Package.
This is one practical family car with very green credentials and incredible performance. The Porsche Panamera 4 E-Hybrid was the first all-wheel-drive Panamera hybrid and in Sport Turismo body style it is more practical and dare we say it looks better too. Just like the coupé-style Porsche Panamera sports saloon, the Sport Turismo is characterized by its very dynamic proportions, which also allow it to feature three full rear seats.
