The Porsche Panamera Sport Turismo 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

All three plug-in variants (4 E-Hybrid, 4S E-Hybrid and Turbo S E-Hybrid) of the Panamera Sport Turismo find themselves in the maximum group 50 band for insurance. This is a £100,000-plus Porsche, plug-in hybrid or not – so expect a punchy premium.

Warranty

The Panamera 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 Panamera E-Hybrid Sport Turismo is subject to road tax of just £145 a year, but because it costs more than £40,000 to buy new, it also incurs the ‘premium’ tax of £335 annually from years two to six of ownership. Still, if you can afford a car like this, that's unlikely to matter.
