The 2024 Porsche Cayenne Turbo E-Hybrid is the most powerful version of the mid-size luxury SUV.
The new Cayenne Turbo E-Hybrid makes a combined 729 horsepower and 700 pound-feet of torque.
The plug-in-hybrid Cayenne should be a missile on the road, with Porsche claiming a zero-to-60-mph time of 3.5 seconds and a top speed of 183 mph.
It's been awhile since Porsche purists have held a complaint campaign targeted at the Cayenne SUV, but for any remaining holdouts, we recommend getting behind the wheel of the 2024 Cayenne Turbo E-Hybrid, which is the most powerful model in the lineup.
The previous Cayenne Turbo E-Hybrid was a rocket ship for the road, and Porsche appears to have fine-tuned that road-going missile with the updated plug-in-hybrid powertrain. It starts with the twin-turbocharged 4.0-liter V-8 that has been extensively revised to make 591 horsepower. The hybrid system has been upgraded too, as the electric motor now makes 174 horsepower—up from 134 in the outgoing Turbo S E-Hybrid. Combined, the new system produces 729 horsepower and 700 pound-feet of torque.
Bigger Battery, Faster Charging
Compared to its predecessor, the new Turbo E-Hybrid has nearly double the battery capacity, increasing from 14.1 kWh to 25.9 kWh. Porsche claims the increased battery capacity provides more pure-electric range. It didn't give specifics, but the last generation was capable of 20 EV-only miles, so we expect the new car to be closer to 30 miles. Along with the bigger battery, a new 11.0-kW onboard charger brings charging times down to a claimed two-and-a-half hours for the new version.
Porsche says the 2024 Cayenne Turbo E-Hybrid is now available to order, with the first examples expected to reach U.S. dealers in the second quarter of next year. Neither the SUV nor the Coupe body style come cheap, with the former carrying a base price of $148,550 and the latter priced at $153,050.
