Video: Porsche Panamera S E-Hybrid Races Electricity

DEC 23 2013 BY ELECTRICCARSTV 6

“Porsche has never been a car company to reject contradictions. On the contrary: we embrace them. And these contradictions live on in the new Panamera S E-Hybrid. More thrills from less fuel. More power from less cylinders. Form joined inextricably to function. Thrilling Porsche performance with future-forward efficient power. Race-born suspension and executive class refinements. Breathtaking agility and reassuring safety features. It’s a race to the future.”

That’s how Porsche describes the Panamera S E-Hybrid, the latest plug-in vehicle to go on sale in the US.

In this video we see the plug-in Panamera race an unexpected friend: electricity.

The result?  Well, plug-ins and electricity don’t compete.  Rather, they team up to create the vehicle of today and of the future.  So, both are winners.

As Tesla has shown, internal combustion engine is irrelevant for the good car.

It would be cool if Tesla would make 120 kWh Model S with 2 x 250 kW AWD. This would put the end for internal combustion engine.

Unfortunately, with current battery technology, doing so would make an overweight car even more overweight.

Sorry but 0-60 in about 4 sec is not overweight :). It’s all about how you feel the car.

The key to EV viability is a lighter car, not heavier. And good aerodynamics. It’s foolish to try to stuff ever more batteries in it. Model S already has plenty of range and a gigantic battery.
It’s better to do similar or a bit less range with less than half the batteries in a car that weighs half, costs less than half and can charge as fast or faster.

A 4-5 seater car can easily weigh less than 900kg. Audi A2 did.

The commercial is ruined by the car not driving in electric mode…..

That car makes a lot of noise for a car running on electricity.
