The 2019 Porsche Panamera E-Hybrid Sport Turismo is equipped with a 2.9-liter twin-turbocharged V6 producing 330 horsepower and 331 lb-ft of torque aided by an electric motor with a 14.1 kWh lithium-ion battery, which makes an additional 134 hp and 295 lb-ft. The combined figures equate to 457 hp and 516 lb-ft, enough for a 170 mph top speed and a 0-60 mph time of 4.4 seconds when equipped with the Sport Chrono package.
The conventionally powered 440-hp Panamera 4S Sport Turismo offers slightly better performance figures for similar money but the E-Hybrid counters with the potential for up to 30 miles of all-electric range and hence better overall consumption figures if your commute makes use of this capability. It also comes standard with air-suspension to counter the additional weight of the electric motor and battery pack.
The Sport Turismo body style gives the Panamera a sporty coupe profile although it is not as spacious as some rivals in the rear as a result. The standard specification list is good although adding a few desirable options can easily push the price uncomfortably high. The Porsche Panamera E-Hybrid Sport Turismo starts at $106,900 excluding taxes and destination charges.
