The Cayenne E-Hybrid offers all the fuel and tax savings inherent in all plug-in hybrid models, but it is also still a big, prestigious and sporty SUV, so things like insurance, tyres and servicing are going to be just as expensive as with any other 2.5-tonne 4x4 packing 456bhp. There are big savings to be made if you're a company-car driver, however. The plug-in hybrid Porsche Cayenne commands a Benefit in Kind (BiK) bill of almost half what you'll pay for a petrol version: costs currently stand at £5,469 (hybrid) vs £8,465 (petrol) for a higher rate tax payer.

Porsche Cayenne hybrid insurance group

The Porsche Cayenne falls into the highest insurance grouping. We got a quote for a 35-year-old male driver, with a driveway, full no-claims bonus and no penalties, and saw most quotes coming in at around £1,300 a year.

Warranty

The Porsche Cayenne E-Hybrid gets a three-year/unlimited-mileage warranty and also three years of Porsche’s comprehensive European roadside assistance policy. If repairs can’t be made at the roadside, the cover includes a replacement car for four days in the UK and return of your vehicle to your home address, or onward travel and accommodation in Europe.

Servicing

The Porsche Cayenne E-Hybrid has variable servicing intervals and will display a warning on the driver’s readout when it need attention, but generally it will need a major service every two years or 20,000 miles, whichever comes first.

Road tax

As an 'alternatively fuelled' vehicle, the Porsche Cayenne E-Hybrid costs £145 a year to tax, but because it costs more than £40,000 to buy, it incurs and extra ‘premium’ tax of £335 annually the first five times you tax it. CO2 emissions starting at 89g/km mean it doesn't get free entry to the London Congestion Charge zone.
