Take a Cayenne, Porsche’s best-selling model, a Taycan, the brand’s first electric, shake them together and you’ll get the latest edition of the German SUV. More or less this is how the renewed Cayenne was born, among the stars of the Shanghai Motor Show and ready to arrive in Italy in July, both in the SUV and in the Coupé variants, with prices starting from 92,837 euros.
The influence of the Taycan on the new Cayenne can be perceived by observing the shapes of the LED matrix light clusters, more quadrangular, and those of the command bridge, made up of three displays, dedicated respectively to the instrumentation (12.6″), to the infotainment (12.3″) and passenger entertainment (10.9″). The standard or optional equipment includes pneumatic trim and rear axle steering which improves car driveability.
Three versions at launch, Cayenne, Cayenne E-Hybrid and Cayenne S. The first provides a 3.0 V6 turbo with 353 HP and 500 Nm, while the S a 4.0 V8 biturbo with 474 HP and 600 Nm. The hybrid adopts a 2.9-litre V6 combined with a new electric motor: the maximum system power is 470 HP and, thanks to the 25.9 kWh battery, the car can travel in electric mode for approximately 83 kilometres.
