Porsche Delivers Preliminary Mileage for Cayenne Hybrid

porsche-cayenne-hybridPorsche unveiled more information about its upcoming Cayenne Hybrid SUV. The gas-electric hybrid will debut next year with a supercharged V-6 engine borrowed from Audi that pumps out 333 hp, combined with a 52-hp electric motor. The company says its 0-62 mph time is 6.8 seconds, which is roughly the same as the V-8 Cayenne S.

The bigger news is that the company says it will return combined mileage of 9 liters per 100 km, which by rough conversion is around 26 mpg. Porsche won’t, however, commit to a U.S. EPA figure. The Cayenne S gets 15 mpg, and a four-cylinder Honda Accord gets 25 mpg combined.

We’ll have to wait until next year for final mileage figures, but anything that sounds this fast with mileage this good can’t be a bad thing. Of course we’d expect the sticker to be much higher than the $59,400 price tag on the Cayenne S.
