2007 Porsche Cayenne Hybrid Concept

November 16, 2007
Two months ago at the Frankfurt Auto Show, Porsche announced its plans for building a hybrid version of theCayenne sport-utility vehicle. Now, at the L.A. Auto Show, Porsche showed the concept for the vehicle, which is due to arrive before the end of this decade.

To give the public an idea of what such a version has under its skin, the German company also put up a see-through and cut-away version of the Cayenne Hybrid.

 

Porsche claims that its full parallel hybrid system will cut fuel consumption by some 15 percent, without sacrificing its performance and driving dynamics. The hybrid system uses a gasoline engine and an electric motor, which will operate together or independently. The future production model is expected to achieve approximately 26 mpg.
