The start point for the best source of fleet information
The Cayenne has been a runaway success for Porsche since its launch in 2002, and the addition of a petrol plug-in hybrid for the latest facelifted model will pique the interest for those business owners with the cash for this sort of car.
There was a hybrid in the Cayenne range before, but it wasn't a plug-in, and it's efficiency figures were no way near as impressive as this model, with a CO2 output of 193g/km compared with 79g/km for the S E-Hybrid. Not only have emissions been cut dramatically, but power from the lithium-ion battery has increased from 34kW to 70kW.
The Cayenne isn't the only hybrid in the range, with the Panamera available with a version of the same technology and taking about 10% of total sales for that model. However, Porsche is expecting the Cayenne hybrids to be even more popular, accounting for around 15-20% of sales for the 4x4. It helps that there is pricing parity with the Diesel S model.
