lines. The alternative drive system is particularly popular in Europe, where 60 per cent of Panamera models delivered during the 2019 fiscal year were hybrids. The share of hybrid models is even higher in France, where the figure is 80 per cent.
Porsche is investing about 600 million euros in its site in Saxony following the decision to manufacture the next-generation Macan as an all-electric variant in Leipzig.
Porsche is fully committed to E-performance at its Leipzig factory: the Panamera S Hybrid celebrated its production launch there just one year after the world premiere of the Cayenne S Hybrid. And just a few weeks ago, Porsche supplemented the current plug-in hybrid range with the addition of the new Panamera 4S E-Hybrid and its completely new drive system with 412 kW combined output with the addition of the new Panamera 4S E-Hybrid. Its all-electric range is up to 30 per cent longer than in previous hybrid models.
The first all-electric compact SUV from Porsche will leave the production line within the decade. As the world’s regions are developing very differently in terms of electric mobility, the sports car manufacturer will continue to offer the Macan model with a combustion engine for now.
