Porsche has officially announced that they will meet the tough US fuel standards by 2016. Read on how!
Von Platen said that meeting the standards is a key challenge for Porsche and that gasoline-electric hybrids will make up 10 percent to 15 percent of two of its top sellers in the U.S. market. That will include the Porsche Cayenne S Hybrid and the upcoming Porsche Panamera S Hybrid.
“We have been hit the hardest in this market on the (fuel efficiency) standards,” said Von Platen. The company’s best-selling 911 lineup gets less than 20 mpg in city driving.
Porsche has also revealed plans to do electric sports cars. The German automaker recently said that it is testing research vehicles with all-electric-drive.
