Porsche Cayenne 2024: updated Turbo E-Hybrid SUV is the most powerful combustion Porsche


The plug-in hybrid powertrain in the Turbo E-Hybrid produces combined system outputs of 544kW/950Nm 

What’s the most powerful combustion-engined Porsche on offer? Well, it’s soon to be the upcoming 2024 Porsche Cayenne Turbo E-Hybrid. 

As a direct rival to the fastest high-performance SUVs on sale, such as the BMW X5M, the Mercedes-AMG GLE63, the Lamborghini Urus and the Aston Martin DBX707, the upcoming Porsche Cayenne Turbo E-Hybrid will produce 544kW and 950Nm from its plug-in hybrid powertrain.

The powertrain consists of a 441kW/800Nm turbocharged 4.0-litre V8 paired with 130kW/460Nm electric drive. The mega hybrid SUV Porsche can accelerate to 100km/h in just 3.5 seconds, with an electric only top speed of 135km/h. 

Using a larger 25.9kWh battery pack (up from the previous version’s 17.9kWh capacity), the new Cayenne E-Hybrid will be able to travel on electric power alone, but for how long is another question. 

The new Cayenne Turbo E-Hybrid is available to order on the brand’s Australian public website.

How much will the new Cayenne flagship cost?

While Porsche hasn’t released list pricing for the Cayenne Turbo E-Hybrid in either wagon or traditionally pricier coupe form, the Australian configurator suggests that the wagon version starts from around $313,000 driveaway. 

This variant will be offered in no less than 11 different colours, plus a custom colour option, as well as eight different interior trim schemes and a whopping 22 different wheel options.
