The Porsche Panamera E-Hybrid Sport Turismo lineup is updated and expanded for 2021 with the arrival of the new 4S E-Hybrid. Power comes from a 2.9-liter twin-turbo V6 connected to an electric motor for a total output of 552 hp and 553 lb-ft. That's actually nearly the same as that of the outgoing Turbo model. And thanks to Launch Control, 0-60 mph takes just 3.5 seconds. Top speed is 185 mph.
All 2021 Panamera E-Hybrid Sport Turismo models feature a 27 percent improvement in battery capacity. Driving modes have all been recalibrated for even more fun behind the wheel. As is the case with all 2021 Panameras, the new Sport Turismo hybrids have tweaked exterior styling, focused mainly at the front and rear. Bear in mind, this second-generation Panamera was revealed in 2017 and these design updates should keep things fresh for the next few years. Step inside and you'll find a 12.3-inch infotainment screen with standard navigation and a WiFi hotspot. Both a 14-speaker Bose sound system and a 21-speaker Burmester surround system are optional.
Buyers who enjoy some track action will be glad to hear enhanced summer tires are now optional. The entire Panamera lineup's suspension and chassis has also been recalibrated. Official fuel economy figures should be released soon.
Orders for the 2021 Panamera E-Hybrid Sport Turismo and new 4S E-Hybrid will get underway in early 2021. Deliveries will begin next spring.
