Intro

Over the years Porsche has been able to change its mission statement regarding hybrids, making them better. And that’s what the manufacturer does with the 2018 Porsche Panamera 4 E-Hybrid. Compared to previous models, it boasts a stunning design, increased horsepower and torque, better comfort, and more. Let’s go over everything in more depth.

Exterior

The exterior of the 2018 Porsche Panamera 4 E-Hybrid is similar to any standard Panamera. However, the new placement of the ‘e-hybrid’ badges, on the vehicle’s front fenders, does help to set it apart a bit. The front fascia is sportier because of the lowered nose. The cues are also 911-like. Prominent creases are present in the front doors. The quarter windows and the C-pillar have a newer look to them.

Coming to the rear, the bumper is beefier. The squared-off hatch is also larger than previous Panamera models. The spoiler allows for more downforce because of it popping out and then extending to the sides of the vehicle. The Panamera 4 E-Hybrid measures 198.78 in length. It is 56.02 inches tall and 76.26 inches in width. The vehicle’s wheelbase measures 116.14 inches.

Interior

There are two screens, seven-inches long each, flanking the vehicle’s analog tachometer. Bespoke power meters are featured in the screens for hybrid operation. The center of the dashboard has a 12.3-inch screen. The dashboard also feels much cleaner than the non-hybrid models. Furthermore, the steering wheel is sportier. The door panels also feature more storage area. There are two cupholders in the center console. The longer wheelbase and better interior packaging allow for more head, shoulder, and legroom in the rear.

Features

The 2018 Porsche Panamera 4 E-Hybrid offers additional models. In the E-Power mode, the vehicle is able to cover 31 miles through electrical power. The Sport and Sport Plus help to maximize the vehicle’s combined hybrid power. The Sport keeps the battery charge steady until you require it. Sport Plus uses the engine to recharge the batteries to provide drivers with more thrust when required.

The 12.3-inch touchscreen offers two electro-friendly modes. You can select between E-Hold and E-Charge. Through E-Charge drivers can run the engine for a battery top-up. Through E-Hold, drivers can save the battery charge to use later.
