Porsche Panamera Sport Turismo hybrid running costs

Electric running can bring seriously cheap commuting, but everything else about the Panamera hybrid is expensive

The Porsche Panamera hybrid offers all the fuel and tax savings normally associated with a plug-in hybrid, but it's also still a large, expensive luxury tourer that puts performance and prestige much higher up the priority list than affordability. Insurance, tyres and servicing are going to be just as expensive as you would expect.  

Porsche Panamera Sport Turismo hybrid insurance group

The Porsche Panamera falls into the highest insurance group going. Even on the V6 model you can expect to pay some £1,500 a year, going by the quote we got for a 35-year-old male driver, with a driveway, full no-claims and no penalties. The V8 Turbo S is of course going to cost even more.

Warranty

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

Road tax

The V6 Panamera E-Hybrid manages CO2 emissions of 64g/km, which will see you into the London Congestion Charge zone for free – a big incentive for regular commuters to the capital. However, the CO2 figure for the V8 Turbo S is 76g/km, so it just misses out on the same benefit.

As they're hybrids, the V6 and V8 Panamera E-Hybrids are subject to road tax of just £130 a year, but because they cost more than £40,000 to buy, they also incurs the ‘premium’ tax of £310 annually from years two to six of ownership.
