2014 Porsche Panamera and Panamera E-Hybrid revealed [video]

Porsche has unveiled the updated Panamera Gran Turismo with both exterior and under the skin updates.

Up front the new Panamera features a new front fascia and new headlights, at the rear we can see updated bumper and new tail lights.

The biggest update is the addition of a Panamera S E-Hybrid model, which offers a combined system output of 410bhp. The E-Hybrid powertrain combines a new 316bhp 3.0-litre V6 and a 95bhp electric motor.

The Panamera S E-Hybrid delivers an impressive 91mpg, with CO2 emissions of 71 g/km. Purely on EV mode, the range is up to 22 miles and it can reach speeds up to 84mph. With both engines working in tandem, 0-62mph comes in 5.5 seconds, while the car’s overall top speed is 168mph.

The Panamera S and 4S get a new twin-turbocharged 413hp 3.0-litre V6, replacing the 4.8-litre V8 and offering extra 19bhp and 20 Nm of torque, compared to the naturally aspirated V8. Fuel economy is also improved up to 18 per cent.

Another new addition to the range is 4S Executive and Turbo Executive, featuring a 15cm longer wheelbase, which offers more room for the rear passengers. The Panamera Turbo packs now 520 hp and does 0-62mph in 4.1 seconds and max out at 189mph. The Panamera GTS continues to use a 4.8-litre V8 delivering 434bhp.

The E-Hybrid uses an eight-speed Tiptronic S automatic while other models will use seven-speed PDK.

The new Porsche Panamera will debut later this month at the Shanghai Motor Show and will arrive in Porsche Centres from July.
