2022 Porsche Cayenne E-Hybrid Coupe Review: All Charged Up

If you still doubt hybridization, look no further than the Porsche range of E-Hybrid models, including the Porsche Cayenne E-Hybrid Coupe. Rather than add electric power exclusively for ultimate efficiency, Porsche also uses it to improve performance. A base Cayenne Coupe without an electric motor produces 335 horsepower from the 3.0L turbocharged V6 under the hood. With the Acid Green hybrid badge on the side, the power increases to a combined 455 hp. And that's just the base model. The AWD Turbo S E-Hybrid has a 4.0L twin-turbo V8 mated to a 134-hp electric motor. In this model, you get combined outputs of 670 hp and 663 lb-ft of torque. All models make use of an 8-speed transmission. Along with blistering pace, the Cayenne Coupe brings a top-class cabin, excellent handling, and a sporty appearance to the table. Rivals like the similarly rapid Audi SQ8/RS Q8 and BMW X6 M don't offer hybrid propulsion, making the more efficient plug-in Cayenne E-Hybrid Coupe quite a unique option in this corner of the market.

Verdict: ๐ŸIs the 2022 Plug-In Porsche Cayenne E-Hybrid Coupe a good SUV?

The new Cayenne Coupe E-Hybrid has many redeeming qualities. At $88,600 in the USA, the base Coupe offers acceptable performance, decent fuel economy, and an alluring badge. Porsche is generous when it comes to standard interior features, but not so much when it comes to safety. The same rings true for the Turbo S E-Hybrid. It retails for $167,800, almost twice the price of the base SUV. Surely there was enough room for another hybrid model to slot in between these two? Then again, there are non-hybrid Cayenne Coupes to bridge the price and performance gap between these two.

The Turbo S adds a few additional luxuries but still very few driver assistance features. You don't get much more than front collision detection with automatic braking, and parking sensors, though, and there is no safety review of the Porsche Cayenne E-Hybrid Coupe available. Asking customers to pay an additional $6,250 for a package that adds a surround-view camera, a head-up display, adaptive cruise control, lane keep assist and night vision is a ripoff. After all, these aren't $20,000 repmobiles. We do appreciate the hybrid assistance, however. When it comes to performance, the 134-hp electric motor does an excellent job filling the power gaps. The 14-mile all-electric range (for the Turbo S) is poor, except if your daily commute is less than that. The plug-in Cayenne Coupe will go up to 83 mph before it engages the internal combustion engine. Unfortunately for Porsche, the competition is extremely strong, especially at the pinnacle of this segment.

๐Ÿš˜What's the Price of the 2022 Porsche Cayenne E-Hybrid Coupe SUV?

The base Cayenne Coupe E-Hybrid retails for $88,600, while the halo Turbo S E-Hybrid costs $167,800. These prices exclude the $1,350 destination charge. Porsche's base model has a few competitors, but their badges aren't as desirable. The Turbo S competes with other hybrids like the Bentley Bentayga Hybrid and the evergreen full-size Range Rover Hybrid, while non-hybrid competitors include the Audi SQ8/RS Q8 and the BMW X6 M which have a similar coupe-like body style. All of these competitors are more affordable than the Porsche but none of them offer both a hybrid powertrain and those sporty coupe-like lines.
