Porsche Panamera hybrid running costs

The Porsche Panamera hybrids are a lot cheaper to run than equivalent petrol or diesel rivals – especially if you use electric power as much as possible

Insurance group Warranty Service interval 2019/20 company-car tax cost (20%/40%)
49-50 3yrs / unlimited miles 2yrs / 20,000 miles From £3,181.28 / £6,362.57

The Panamera hybrid models' petrol-electric powertrain gives them very competitive running costs compared to purely petrol-powered rivals of similar price and performance.

Keep the battery topped up and use the electric range as much as possible and your fuel bills will be surprisingly low.

Some other costs will be hefty, such as insurance and servicing, but low CO2 emissions mean company-car drivers lucky enough to be able to choose a Panamera hybrid will make big annual savings.

Porsche Panamera hybrid insurance group

No two ways about it – the Panamera hybrid is going to be expensive to insure. The 4 E-Hybrid models are in insurance group 49 and the Turbo S E-Hybrids are in group 50 – the two highest insurance groups there are.

Warranty

Like all Porsches sold new in the UK, the Panamera hybrids come with an unlimited-mileage, three-year warranty and three years of Europe-wide 'Porsche Assistance' breakdown cover. The warranty and breakdown cover can be extended beyond the three-year limit at extra cost.

Servicing

The Panamera needs servicing every 20,000 miles or two years, whichever comes sooner. Every second service is a more expensive 'Main Service', alternating with the cheaper 'Intermediate Service'.

Road tax

Both Panamera hybrids, being 'alternatively fuelled vehicles' are taxed at a base rate of £135 a year. But because their retail prices are well in excess of the £40,000 cut-off point, they'll cost owners an additional £320-a-year 'premium tax' the first five times the tax is due. That makes for an annual bill of £455 in total.
