Official: 2014 Porsche Panamera S E-Hybrid manages 53.45 mpg in real-world tests
May 24, 2013 by admin
As part of a recent event with a number of Panamera S E-Hybrids driven by journalists in Europe, Porsche‘s new plug-in managed to burn (on average) just 4.4 liters of fuel for each 100 kilometers. That’s the equivalent of 53.45 miles per gallon. Porsche says this real-world, 745-mile test, which took place on an 18-mile loop along the Autobahn and through the city of Hockenheim, proves that the official NEDC rating of 3.1 l/km (75.87 mpg) is not some impossible-to-meet-outside-the-lab fuel economy level, especially since one journalist managed to get 2.8 l/km (84 mpg).
The 2014 Panamera S E-Hybrid, which was recently unveiled in Shanghai, has a 9.4-kWh lithium-ion battery that offers an all-electric range of 22 miles and can go from 0- 60 mph in 5.2 seconds with a top speed of 167 mph from a powertrain that puts out 416 horsepower and 435 pound-feet of torque. It takes two-and-a-half hours to recharge from a Level 2 charger.
The car arrives at Porsche dealers at the end of July in Europe and in the US in late 2013. The US base price is $99,000.
