The latest version is equipped with a 17.9 kWh battery instead of 14.1 kWh.

The new 2021 Porsche Cayenne plug-in hybrid family (a total of four versions) has received new, improved EPA range and efficiency ratings, thanks to higher battery capacity.

The family consists of a total of four models, just like in the previous year:

  • 2021 Porsche Cayenne E-Hybrid
  • 2021 Porsche Cayenne E-Hybrid Coupe
  • 2021 Porsche Cayenne Turbo S E-Hybrid
  • 2021 Porsche Cayenne Turbo S E-Hybrid Coupe

Compared to the 2020 model year, the battery capacity has increased by almost 27%, from 14.1 kWh to 17.9 kWh. It allowed to increase the all-electric range from 10-12 miles to 14-16 miles (23-26 km), depending on version, according to the EPA. The WLTP range is up to 48 km (30 miles).

2021 Porsche Cayenne E-Hybrid (& Coupe version)

The first two versions - Cayenne E-Hybrid and Cayenne E-Hybrid Coupe are rated the same, although we guess that in the real world there will be some small differences due to aerodynamics.

The all-electric range is up to 16 miles (25.7 km), while the total range is 430 miles (692 km).

The combined energy consumption in EV mode is 46 MPGe: 733 Wh/mi (455 Wh/km), more than twice higher than in the hybrid mode.
