Plan for Panamera Hybrid

Porsche has announced plans for what it calls a “Hybrid Drive” for the planned Panamera performance sedan.
The Panamera is Porsche’s new, and not-yet-released performance sedan which will feature four doors and a FR engine layout. While Porsche seems to be slowly crawling towards challenging the likes of BMW and Mercedes for top German luxury and performance automaker, it appears unlikely that they will become a producer of volume passenger cars.
The newly developed full parallel hybrid system will consist primarily of the battery unit positioned in the luggage compartment, the power electronics, and the hybrid module between the engine and transmission comprising an additional clutch and the electric motor.
Thanks to its newly developed full parallel hybrid, Porsche’s Sports Utility will offer average fuel consumption of less than 9 litres/100 km.
