Porsche has sold more than 1,500 Panamera E-hybrid PHEVs this year; 9% of Panamera sales

Porsche said it has delivered more than 1,500 Panamera E-Hybrid plug-in hybrids (earlier post) to customers worldwide from January to August 2014. This represents 9% of all Panamera models sold during that time (16,700). The plug-in has a $96,100 starting MSRP in the US.

In total, Porsche sold more than 120,000 new vehicles worldwide from January to August 2014, an increase of 12% in comparison to the same period last year. With an increase of 23%, the Panamera posted the highest growth during that period. Panamera E-Hybrid plug-in sales thus also represent 1.3% of all Porsche vehicles sold.

During an international press event in Germany in July, more than 42 test drives covering a total distance of more than 1,200 kilometers (746 miles), the Panamera plug-in hybrid model consumed 4.4 l/100 km (53.4 mpg US) averaged over all drives. (Earlier post.)

The lowest fuel consumption value recorded on the circuit course for the Panamera plug-in hybrid was 2.8 l/100 km (84 mpg US). NEDC testing indicates combined cycle fuel consumption of 3.1 l/100 km (75.9 mpg US) for the PHEV, with accompanying CO2 emissions (combined) of 71 g/km. Electrical consumption (combined) is rated at 162 Wh/km.

In July, Porsche introduced the plug-in Cayenne S E-Hybrid SUV, which shares most of the powertrain components of the Panamera E-Hybrid. (Earlier post.)
