Porsche unveiled today the ‘2018 Panamera 4 E-Hybrid’, a new plug-in hybrid version of its flagship sedan with more electric range. The original version of Panamera plug-in electric hybrid was unveiled in 2013 and was equipped with a 9.4 kWh battery pack for up to “32 km (20 miles) under the New European Driving Cycle (NEDC) standard” of all-electric range.

In the 2018 Panamera 4 E-Hybrid, Porsche is introducing a bigger 14.1 kWh liquid-cooled lithium-ion battery for “up 50 km (31 miles) NEDC-rated range”. The real-world electric range should end up closer to ~20 miles, but still a lot better than what owners of the previous Panamera plug-in were achieving. expand full story
