Porsche Panamera hybrid range, MPG, CO2 & charging
|MPG||CO2||Electric range||Wallbox charge time|
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.
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.
