Porshe’s world debut of the Cayenne S Hybrid with its full hybrid drive and fuel consumption in the New European Driving Cycle of 34.4 mpg, which translate to CO2 emissions of just 193 g/km. The Cayenne S Hybrid therefore combines the performance of an eight-cylinder with the economy of a six-cylinder running on much less fuel. Compared with the previous models, fuel consumption is down by to 23 per cent.
Added help to reduce fuel consumption, a special combination of materials for optimum weight as well as changes in the overall concept of the vehicle such as the Cayenne’s new active and extra-light all-wheel drive, weight is down for example on the Cayenne S by 400 lb, even though 1.6″ longer wheel base means more cargo space in the new 2011 Cayenne S Hybrid.

-Cayenne V6 3.6L with 300 horsepower in conjunction with optional eight-speed Tiptronic S transmission with combined fuel consumption of 28.5 mpg.
