3 Reasons to Choose Porsche's E-Hybrid Model | Cayenne, Hybrid is the best buy if you get lost in Panamera
Release date: 2021.04.17
My Cayenne is a Cayenne E-hybrid model, but "Panamera 4E hybrid that I got on the other dayIt ’s called my Cayenne,The more you ride, the better the Porsche E-Hybrid model. If you buy Cayenne or Panamera in the future, you will definitely buy a hybrid model.I often have a conversation with my husband and wife.
So today, my husband wrote about why Porsche's E-hybrid model is so great. Please take a look.
Porsche hybrid is fast
Porsche hybrids are fast.
Looking at the explanation on Porsche's site and catalog, "Circuit-derived hybrid technology"Incorporating the technology of the 919 Hybrid that was fighting at the WEC"it is written like this.
However, when it comes to hybrids, there is an image of an "eco-oriented hybrid car," and I think there is an impression that the accelerator opening does not match the speed and engine speed because there is no sense of power.
I thought that way too, "I don't understand the meaning of buying a hybrid at Porsche. Even though it incorporates the 919 Hybrid technology, it's an "(eco) hybrid" after all.I thought that.
However, since I bought the Cayenne E-Hybrid,That prejudice has disappeared 100%. Porsche feels that hybrids are used for speed and power, not fuel economyIt became so.
In fact, the E-hybrid model is fast. Pretty fast. Even if you look at the data,Yen S has 0-100km / h in 5.2 seconds, while E-Hybrid has 5.0 seconds.That's right. In addition to that, due to the characteristics of the motor, the maximum torque is generated instantly, so I think it feels faster.
In fact, an acquaintance who was riding the Cayenne GTS coupe said, "I tried riding two E-hybrid and GTS, but I think the hybrid is fasterYou said. (I think it's an individual feeling, but the E-hybrid feels so fast)
Also, the overtaking acceleration on the highway is wonderful.If you switch to sports mode and step on the accelerator,The boost meter on the instrument panel jumps up, accelerating the body over 2 tons lightly.
This acceleration power is defeated by the turbo, but it is not an enemy such as sports sedans. It's pretty good. Also, even on general roads, if you are driving on Midosuji in Osaka city, which has a lot of traffic, and you want to get out in front of you safely and change lanes, the response is too wonderful.
When you step on the accelerator, the engine starts without a break, the power of the motor assists, and you can move forward in an instant.Every time I say, "It's a good car," I admire it.
Porsche hybrid is cheap
Porsche's E-Hybrid is cheaper than other models.In terms of Cayenne, it is about 1.27 million yen cheaper than the S, and the sports chrono package is standard equipment. Moreover, when it comes to used cars, hybrids are even cheaper, and they are already unreasonably cheap (laughs).
ProbablyThe high performance of this hybrid is not well understood by the public, so it may not be popular.But I want to say it out loud. "Hybrid is the best buy". No matter what other Porsche riders think, I think your choice of hybrid is correct.
If you are considering purchasing Cayenne or Panamera and have decided on S or Turbo, that's fine, butIf you're wondering what grade to use, I definitely recommend the E-Hybrid.If I buy a Panamera or Cayenne next time, I will definitely choose a hybrid model.
Porsche hybrid is comfortable to ride
The biggest feature of the E-Hybrid is the ride quality, or to be exactGood rideThat can be mentioned.
First of all, since it is driven by a motor from the start, it is very smooth from the first roll of the tire. This is not a story of the dimension that "suspension is air suspension, spring suspension"Smoothness that comes from the smoothness of the drive systemYou should think that.
With a comfortable ride, it slides smoothly.This feels the same for both Panamera and Cayenne, and it feels a bit different from the gasoline model.
Also,The motor is also very compatible with transmissions such as PDK and Tiptronic S.The fact that the motor can control the torque instantly may also have a lot to do with it. There is little shift shock, no, it is almost nonexistent, and it provides a high-quality ride.
Moreover, the control when you want to accelerate quickly in the city is also wonderful, and the torque is instantly transmitted to the tires without any discomfort.There is no need to wait for a kickdown jerky or turbo lag.
And the biggest factor I think about ride quality isHeavy battery is loaded on the rearThing. This willThe rear has a strong sense of stability, and the movement is very calm.
Especially Cayenne etc. have a high center of gravity with SUV, and if there are no people in the rear seats, the rear may feel a little too light, and it may show a slightly bouncing behavior, but the hybrid model isThe weight of the battery is used well to improve the ride quality,It provides a high-quality ride.
Finally, the battery and motor are about 300 kg heavier, soIt doesn't look like Porsche, isn't it dull even in the corners?I think there are some people who think that.
I used to think so too. But that's not the case at all.
It's fast enough and it does a great cornering without any discomfort.this isPanamera E-Hybrid ArticleI also wrote it in, so please refer to it.
Who shouldn't buy an E-Hybrid?
There is nothing wrong with it, but if the following items apply, other grades may be better.
- Those who emphasize engine sound, especially those who need no engine sound at the time of starting.
- Those who rarely run short distances and are mainly long-distance runners. (If it is charged, it can move for a short distance with only electricity, but if it is a long distance, it will eventually run out of electricity, so the fuel efficiency is not as good as you can imagine from a hybrid. About 10-12km / L in Cayenne.)
- Those who do not have a power supply in the garage. (You can run without it, but if you have at least 100V power supply, you can move near by with almost electricity)
- Those who also run the circuit with Cayenne and Panamera (I think that it is better to be lighter as expected)
… And that's my husband's view.
In addition to the above view, in the case of the E-hybrid, I think it would be good if you only need to charge the battery without using gasoline when you go shopping nearby.It is displayed that my Cayenne can run 28 to 30 km on a full chargeBut(Maximum 44km in catalog value), It's almost okay if you travel about 20km round trip in the city.
The other day, I sent my husband to the vicinity of the company in Cayenne (about 25 km one way), but I tried running in E power mode, which runs only on electricity without using gasoline from beginning to end.
It was warm on that day and the air conditioner was turned off, I was cruising along the flow of the driving lane on the highway, and I was consciously trying to recover electricity on the downhill.On the way back, I ran on the highway and got off the IC, and it was charged.
In this way, the Cayenne E-Hybrid does not usually use gasoline, so it has been about half a year since the car was delivered, and the mileage is about 7,000 km, which is quite a run, but so far I have added gasoline four or five times. It's about.
And now that it is not necessary to fill up the gasoline, I will run with about half of the gasoline, and when it runs out, I will try to fill it up again, but this will not disappear (laugh)
If anyone is considering Cayenne or Panamera,E-Hybrid is highly recommended because it is comfortable to ride, fast, fuel efficient, and very cost effective.It is.
