Porsche Panamera S Hybrid

Porsche will bring the Porsche Panamera S Hybrid in 2011 and with it comes a zero emissions driving mode.

“The full parallel hybrid system of the Panamera will be configured with the battery unit positioned below the luggage compartment, and hybrid module, comprising of an additional clutch and electric motor, will be between the engine and transmission,” Porsche said in a statement. “Depending on driving conditions, the hybrid module has the ability to disengage either the combustion engine or the electric motor, or to combine both drive systems as one joint power unit. This flexibility results in benefits such as a zero emissions driving mode, fuel savings in both city and highway driving and maximum performance when desired.”
