The first pictures of the plug-in Cayenne model from Porsche have been released across the internet and the model is set to be adopting it's technology from the Porsche Panamera.
A number of spy shots have been released of the face lifted upcoming Cayenne model, though this is the first time that the plug in S E hybrid has been seen across the internet. It is likely to be using the same technology as the Porsche Panamera S E Hybrid, with very small styling features that mark it out from the remainder of the Porsche Cayenne range.
Not wearing much disguise, the extra fuel filler cap on the back quarter connotes the prototype shown across the internet as the Porsche Cayenne S E-Hybrid model. Other notable changes for the face lifted SUV extends to reshaped bumpers and more stylish LED headlights.
The Porsche Cayenne S E-Hybrid model is more than likely going to be fitted with silver and neon green badges along with green brake callipers in order to be able to easily distinguish it from the remainder of the range, like the Porsche Panamera.
The power train, mechanically from the Panamera S E-hybrid is more than likely going to be adopted. A 316 brake horsepower supercharged V6 3.0 litre engine combined with a 94 brake horsepower electric motor will be providing the power. Porsche claim that the system is able to return over 91 miles per gallon and will only emit 71g of CO2.
With the power train fitted to the Porsche Cayenne, the figures will suffer a little due to the SUV's increased weight, though the S E-Hybrid is all set to be the most frugal Cayenne model in the range. Porsche have recently announced a desire to make their way into the luxury car market following research carried out by owners Volkswagen.
The model is in the later stages of development so everyone can see it's official public unveiling in September at the Paris Motor Show.
