Porsche's new Cayenne Hybrid generates 380hp

When we last visited Porsche's Cayenne S Hybrid SUV, the German automaker was finishing up road testing on prototypes. Today, however, Porsche is getting official with pricing for its large hybrid.

The new Cayenne S Hybrid will be priced from $67,770 -- this compares to a base MSRP of $46,700 for the standard entry-level Cayenne. The Cayenne S Hybrid uses the 3.0-liter supercharged V6 engine found in the Audi S4 which generates 333 hp. An electric motor generating 47 hp brings total system power for the parallel hybrid to 380 hp. Power is transmitted to all four wheels using an 8-speed Tiptronic S transmission.

Official U.S. fuel economy numbers have not yet been released for the Cayenne S Hybrid, but the vehicle achieves 28.68 mpg on the European cycle according to Porsche's German website. For comparison, the 400 hp, V8-powered Cayenne S achieves 22.4 mpg and the Cayenne Diesel (which is unlikely to come here) is rated at 31.79 mpg.

According to Porsche, the Cayenne S Hybrid is powerful enough to dash to 60 mph in just 6.1 seconds and has a top speed of 150 mph.

The latest Cayenne is 1.9 inches longer than its predecessor and rides on a 1.6-inch longer wheelbase. Also, depending on the trim level, the new Cayenne is up to 400 pounds lighter than the outgoing version.
