Porsche E-Performance equates to the thrill of driving, in a hybrid drive that perfectly combines the combustion engine and electric machine.
For an outstanding driving experience. For the future of the Sports Car. Porsche Connect services make your connection with your Panamera 4 E-Hybrid even closer. “It is the first model of a new generation of plug-in hybrids at Porsche.” And it ought to change your view of hybrid technology. And your everyday life. Pure Sports Car performance with intelligent technologies and the pooled experience from more than 60 years of motor sports. There, we put the E-Performance concept to the test time and time again, and we are paving the way to the future of all series production Sports Cars. “The Panamera 4 E-Hybrid contains the genes of the 918 Spyder. For the driver, this means greater spontaneity and dynamic response,” says Dr. Gernot Döllner, head of the model line.
The new E-hybrid Model is all about Performance
The combination of combustion engine and electric machine is crucial for the peak performance. The combustion engine builds up power and torque as engine speed increases. The maximum torque of the electric machine is available immediately.
The Panamera 4 E-Hybrid has 5 main driving states: electric driving, combustion engine driving, boost, coasting and recuperation, which are activated automatically and according to need. As a result, consistently high overall torque and dynamic responsiveness are available over an extremely wide rpm range. “Performance that you notice immediately, but which also keeps going over long distances.” The mode switch on the steering wheel, derived from the 918 Spyder, and Porsche Communication Management (PCM) are used for selecting between 6 drive modes – and the SPORT Response function for maximum responsiveness.
The centrally arranged Power Meter in the instrument cluster shows the power that is currently being drawn as well as the boost and recuperation zone, and informs the driver about the operational readiness of the vehicle. Hybrid screens show the E-range and battery state of charge, amongst other information. Visually, the Panamera 4 E-Hybrid differs from the other models due to its touches of colour. The brake callipers, instrument cluster needles, border of the “e-hybrid” logos on the front doors and the model designation on the tailgate are in Acid green.

Hybrid screens show the E-range and battery state of charge, amongst other information. Using the 12-inch touch display of the PCM, you employ multi-touch gesture control to call up Porsche Connect services, to obtain information such as the energy flow display and to select between various vehicle and hybrid functions. You can also activate the functions using the touch-sensitive buttons arranged around the selector lever in the centre console.
Charging at Home: For quick and convenient charging, they recommend that you install an industrial electrical outlet. The practical wall mount for the Porsche Universal Charger (AC) is part of the standard equipment. For more convenient operation and stowage of the charger, a charging dock created by Porsche Design is optionally available. As an alternative to wall mounting, you can choose the optional charging pedestal.
Charging on the Road: The Porsche Tequipment charging cable is available as an option for public charging pedestals. Alternatively, you can charge the battery using the Porsche Universal Charger (AC) at any suitable, properly installed electrical socket, e.g. while at work or visiting friends. You can store the charging equipment in the transport bag in the luggage compartment to save space.
