The 2024 Porsche Panamera range has been expanded to include two more hybrid variants.

    In addition to the base Porsche Panamera and the Panamera Turbo E-Hybrid announced for Australia in November 2023, there will also be a Panamera 4 E-Hybrid and 4S E-Hybrid coming to local showrooms – both with plug-in hybrid power. 

    Local launch timing and pricing for the new variants has yet to be announced.

    Powering the Panamera 4 E-Hybrid is a 2.9-litre twin-turbo V6 petrol engine, contributing 224kW to the plug-in hybrid system’s total outputs of 346kW and 650Nm – a 6kW increase but 50Nm drop compared to the previous generation variant of the model.  

    Stepping up to the Panamera 4S E-Hybrid results in total system outputs of 400kW and 750Nm, 12kW less than the outgoing model – largely due to a 64kW loss from its 2.9-litre twin-turbo V6 engine – with no change to its torque figure.

    Both variants are all-wheel drive, with a 140kW electric motor integrated into the eight-speed PDK dual-clutch automatic transmission shared between the models.

    As with the flagship Panamera Turbo E-Hybrid, the electric motor is powered by a 25.9kWh battery pack, capable of charging from flat to full in less than 160 minutes when using the onboard 11kW AC charger.

    Standard equipment fitted to the Porsche Panamera 4 E-Hybrid includes:

    • 19-inch wheels
    • Black brake calipers
    • HD Matrix LED headlights
    • Head-up display
    • 14-way power-adjustable front seats with heating and ventilation
    • Soft close doors
    • Bose sound system
    • Digital radio
    • 15-watt wireless charging pad
    • Park assist
    • Adaptive cruise control
    • Surround-view camera
    • Active parking support
    • Lane change assist

    There will also be a longer wheelbase ‘Executive’ package available for the Panamera 4 E-Hybrid, gaining:

    • Panoramic roof
    • Four-zone climate control
    • Rear side airbags

    Over the 4 E-Hybrid, the Panamera 4S E-Hybrid adds:

    • 20-inch ‘Panamera AeroDesign’ wheels
    • Red 10-piston front brake calipers
    • Silver sport exhaust tips
    • Comfort Access
    • Ioniser

    While pricing for the 4 E-Hybrid and 4S E-Hybrid has yet to be announced, the base Panamera and the Panamera Turbo E-Hybrid are priced from $227,000 before on-roads and $402,300 before on-roads, respectively. They’re due here in March.
