Porsche Panamera hybrid range, MPG, CO2 & charging

Figures for the Porsche Panamera hybrids look good across the board, but how close you come to achieving them will depend on your driving style

MPG CO2 Electric range Wallbox charge time
78.5-85.6mpg 60-76g/km 24-27 miles 2.5-6hrs

Depending on the exact version you choose, the Panamera E-Hybrid will return MPG figures from the high 70s to low 80s – extremely impressive for a large and powerful four-seater sports car. The caveat to this is that you must make full use of the car's 25-odd-miles electric range in order to see such numbers.

Failing to keep the battery topped up, either from a home charger overnight or from public chargers while out and about, will result in fuel economy figures more akin to the standard V6 and V8-engined petrol Panameras.

Porsche Panamera hybrid range, MPG & CO2 emissions

Under the latest WLTP testing procedure, the Panamera hybrids recorded an official electric-only driving range of 24-27 miles.

The Panamera's miles-per-gallon figures are from the latest procedure, too. Most efficient in the range is unsurprisingly the entry-level 4 E-Hybrid, recording up to 85.6mpg on the 'combined' cycle (representing driving on a mix of urban and extra-urban roads). The equivalent figure for the Turbo S is 80.7mpg.

Specifying the long-wheelbase Executive bodystyle has no effect on the 4 E-Hybrid's claimed economy, but it does drop the figure for the Turbo to 78.5mpg.

CO2 emissions can be as low as 60g/km (for the entry-level Panamera 4 E-Hybrid), rising to 74g/km for the Turbo S and 76g/km for the long-wheelbase Executive version of the Turbo S. So whichever model you choose, company-car tax will be very low.

Charge time

The Panamera hybrid will charge overnight from a standard domestic socket in about six hours. Unfortunately, you have to pay extra for a faster on-board charger in order to have the car charge at the maximum speed of most home wallbox chargers. If you do that, a full top-up can be completed in just under two and a half hours.
