Porsche Panamera S Hybrid (2012)

CAR GARAGE | Porsche Panamera S Hybrid (2012) | The Porsche Panamera S Hybrid is the first full parallel hybrid car in the luxury class with unique features. Moreover, thanks to the so-called 'sailing' mode on motorways and main roads, the Porsche hybrid is the only system in the world consumption Able to exploit additional reserves in higher speed ranges. This entails disengaging and switching off the internal combustion engine at speeds of up to 165 km / h (103 mph) during phases when no power is delivered by the internal combustion engine. The exterior of Porsche's new Gran Turismo series model corresponds extensively to the Panamera S. Distinguishing features include the "Panamera S Hybrid" emblem on the rear and the "hybrid" badges on both front doors. The equipment for the Porsche Panamera S Hybrid is on a par with the very high standards of the Panamera S with the eight-cylinder engine.

The eight-speed Tiptronic S for the Porsche Panamera S Hybrid is a transmission characterized by high efficiency and fast gear changes coupled with supreme gearshift comfort and ride. Top speed is reached in sixth gear. The fast gear changes the which the driver hardly notices highest guarantees maximum agility and driving pleasure. Thanks to intelligent gearshift Programmers, the driver can use the accelerator and brake pedals to deliberately influence the behavior of the gear change Tiptronic S. Rapid action accelerator pedal makes changing gears more dynamic - entirely without kick down.

The Porsche Panamera S Hybrid is driven by the same engine combination has already proved That Itself in the Cayenne S Hybrid: The main power comes from a three-liter V6 engine compressor 333 delivers the which hp (245 kW) and is supported by a 34 kW (47 hp) electric motor. The electric motor can propel the Panamera S Hybrid all by Itself or can support the internal combustion engine.  The electric motor is hooked up to a nickel-metal hydride battery (NiMH) the which is used to store electrical energy generated while braking or driving.

The unrivaled low fuel consumption of the Panamera S Hybrid is Mainly due to its ability to recover the kinetic energy of the car while braking converting it to electrical energy. Only at higher speeds and when slowing down, the conventional braking system kicks in. If a six-cylinder engine under part-load operates below this range, the control unit will automatically open the throttle further so That the engine load increases but the engine speed will not change, and uses this additional power to generate electricity. The driver will not notice anything since Neither engine nor traveling speeds will change.
