With peak output of 512 horsepower, the Cayenne S E-Hybrid betters the lesser Cayenne E-Hybrid by 49 horses.
The Cayenne S E-Hybrid comes in both SUV and coupe body styles.
Look for deliveries to start in early 2024 and pricing starts at $100,750.
Porsche is dusting off the S E-Hybrid moniker for the 2024 Porsche Cayenne after temporarily retiring it following the 2018 model year. The 512-hp Cayenne S E-Hybrid slots between the 463-hp Cayenne E-Hybrid and 729-hp Cayenne Turbo E-Hybrid in the SUV’s lineup of gasoline-electric variants.
Available in both wagon and fastback body styles (or SUV and coupe in Porsche parlance), the S E-Hybrid shares its 348-hp turbocharged 3.0-liter V-6 engine with the base Cayenne, which it pairs with a 174-hp electric motor. The combination provides enough grunt to push the SUV to 60 mph in 4.4 seconds, per Porsche.
Like the rest of the Cayenne E-Hybrid line, the S E-Hybrid includes a 25.9-kWh (gross capacity) battery pack. An 11.0-kW charger allows the SUV to fully charge that pack in two and a half hours when plugged into a 240-volt outlet. We wager that battery-only driving range ought to top 20 miles in the EPA’s hands. Porsche, however, is mum on range estimates at this point.
With a starting sum of $100,750, the S E-Hybrid wagon stickers for $7400 more than the E-Hybrid. That sum includes niceties such as 20-inch wheels and tires, quad tailpipes, LED headlights with automatic high beams, the Sport Chrono package and its steering-wheel-mounted drive mode switch, and a proximity key with pushbutton start.
Opting for the Cayenne S E-Hybrid Coupe, meanwhile, adds $4900 to the starting sum. Along with its swoopy shape, the fastback S E-Hybrid trades the wagon’s silver exterior decor for black trim pieces.
Both 2024 Porsche Cayenne S E-Hybrid body styles are due to start deliveries in early 2024.
