The Porsche Cayenne S E-Hybrid can run the quarter-mile a tenth of a second faster than its non-hybrid alternative, and prices start at $100,750
Porsche took the wraps off the 2024 Cayenne S E-Hybrid, which it calls the perfect mid-point between the standard E-Hybrid model, and the ultra high-performance Cayenne Turbo E-Hybrid.
Powered by a combination of Porsche’s 3.0-liter turbocharged V6 that makes 348 hp (260 kW/354 PS) and an electric motor that produces 174 (130 kW/177 PS) the 2024 Cayenne S E-Hybrid has a total system output of 512 hp (382 kW/519 PS) and 553 lb-ft (750 Nm) of torque.
The electric motor is powered by a 25.9 kWh battery with an 11 kW on-board AC charger that allows the vehicle to be filled up with electricity in about 2.5 hours on a standard Level 2 charger.

This powertrain provides impressive acceleration to the Cayenne S E-Hybrid. It can accelerate from a standstill to 60 mph (96 km/h) in just 4.4 seconds and complete the quarter-mile in 13.0 seconds, which is 0.1 seconds quicker than the non-hybridized twin-turbocharged Cayenne S.
Not just a straight-line rocket, Porsche has also equipped the Cayenne S E-Hybrid with its nifty new two-chamber, two-valve air suspension. The system allows Porsche’s engineers a lot of flexibility when tuning driving modes, making the comfort and sport modes more different than ever before.
