Dubai Motor Show To Present Porsche E-Mobility

With an unrivalled legacy of breaking new automotive ground, Porsche is preparing to highlight the company’s leading steps into the future, by showcasing the latest state-of-the-art plug-in hybrid technology at the 2013 Dubai International Motor Show scheduled to hold from November 5 to 9. Combining typical Porsche performance with continuous improvements in efficiency, the developments represent some of the most exciting in automotive history.

Taking on the mantle as Porsche evolves the pioneering technology further is the car set to shine at the 2013 edition of the Dubai International Motor Show, the Panamera S E-Hybrid, the first plug-in hybrid in the luxury class. With 416 horsepower, acceleration from 0-100 km/h in 5.5 seconds and a top speed of 270 km/h, it is a Porsche Gran Turismo through and through. It is unique in its ability to drive considerable distances in all-electric mode, with a range of up to 36 kilometres and an electric driving top speed of 135 km/h. In the NEDC, the Panamera S E-Hybrid consumes 3.1 l/100 km, which equates to 71 g/km CO2 emissions.

The Panamera S E-Hybrid is a systematically advanced development of the parallel full hybrid drive system with a more powerful electric motor, a higher-performance battery that supplies more energy and the ability to charge it externally from the electrical grid. The electric drive produces 95 hp, which is more than double the power of the previous model’s electric motor at 47 hp. It draws its energy from a newly developed lithium-ion battery, which at 9.4 kWh has over five times the 1.7 kWh energy capacity of the previous battery in nickel metal hydride technology. When connected to an industrial outlet, it can be charged within around two and a half hours via the integrated on-board charger and the standard Porsche Universal Charger (AC); when connected to a conventional household electrical outlet available in most countries, the charging process takes less than four hours.

With this revolutionary new technology Porsche continues to break new ground and strives to blend the technology into every segment. Christer Ekberg, Managing Director of Porsche Middle East and Africa FZE, says: “The pioneering technology in the Panamera S E-Hybrid, on display at this year’s Dubai International Motor Show, shows Porsche bravely breaking new ground while ensuring the brand‘s heritage and traditions of luxury and performance are not only maintained, but enhanced. It is an immensely exciting time not only for the brand regionally and around the world, but also for the wider motoring industry with such inspiring new technology.”

For years, Porsche has been at the forefront of electronic mobility in the performance and luxury class, and through new models continues to push the boundaries of possibility. In 2010, the Cayenne S Hybrid became one of the first hybrids introduced to the Middle East region.

Designed as a parallel full hybrid, the car boasts field-leading efficiency coupled with Porsche sports car performance.

That same year, Porsche revealed the 918 Spyder concept which instantaneously became one of the main exhibition highlights. Just a year later, first units of the Panamera S Hybrid arrived to the Middle East.
