With the introduction of the 2024 Cayenne Turbo E-Hybrid, Porsche has widened its SUV lineup on the global market. The new Cayenne Turbo E-Hybrid is the most potent Cayenne ever built and shares many of the same design cues as the revamped Cayenne. Both SUV and coupe versions of the Cayenne plug-in hybrid will be offered, as well as the top-of-the-line GT package. Recent incarnations of the Porsche Cayenne have been quite potent, notably its third-generation edition. However, it has not ever been nearly as powerful as the latest Cayenne Turbo E-Hybrid in the history of its moniker. The Cayenne E-Hybrid has a 4.0-litre V8 engine along with an electric motor and provides an impressive power output. Interestingly, it delivers more power when compared to the Cayenne Turbo GT, which produces 642bhp and 849Nm of maximum torque.
2024 Porsche Cayenne Turbo E-Hybrid: Exterior and Interior Features
The exterior changes on the new model are minimal. First off, enhanced LED matrix headlights and a larger grille have been added to the fascia. Although the design is sleek, the back of a Cayenne is typically a standout than usual. The tailgate is finished with four exhaust pipes that lie at the bottom and a sleek LED taillight that spans its width. Despite having an unmistakably Cayenne body and profile overall, the features within it give the styling in general a more contemporary look. The coupe also comes with a standard GT option that includes black accents all over the bodywork, lending it a more aggressive appearance.
Speaking of the interior, with a total of three screens, including the optional passenger display, the cabin places a significant emphasis on the digital aspect. Moreover, since the gear lever has been placed on the dashboard, the area surrounding the centre console is more spacious. Among the standard comfort features are a 12.3-inch infotainment system, a heated steering wheel, a 12.6-inch digital driver's display, and 14-way adjustable leather seats.

The plug-in hybrid drivetrain used by the 2024 Porsche Cayenne Turbo E-Hybrid features improved technology, increasing both performance as well as range. A powerful 4.0-litre twin-turbo V8 engine and an electric motor combine to crank out the premium coupe's incredible 729bhp of peak power and 950Nm of maximum torque. It can reach a top speed of 295km/h and sprints from 0 to 100km/h in roughly 3.7 seconds. Furthermore, the GT Package model offers a top speed of 305km/h and accelerates from 0 to 100km/h in about 3.6 seconds. According to the manufacturer, the Porsche Cayenne Turbo E-Hybrid employs a 25.9kWh battery in EV mode and has an 82-kilometre pure-electric driving range. The battery can be fully charged in less than 2.5 hours using the 11kW onboard charger, as claimed by the German automobile manufacturer.
2024 Porsche Cayenne Turbo E-Hybrid: Expected India Launch and Rivals
The carmaker has already begun accepting reservations for the Cayenne Turbo E-Hybrid in global markets, and it may soon be available in India as well. In case of a launch in our home market, anticipate the costs for the new model to bear a hefty premium over those for current incarnations of the SUV, which are offered on our soil and begin at Rs 1.36 crore (ex-showroom). It will compete with vehicles like the Audi RS Q8, the Range Rover Sport, and the BMW XM.
