Overview

Porsche improved the Cayenne E-Hybrid SUV with its second high-performance version. Any eco-credentials are marginal here, with emissions too high to qualify as an "Ultra-Low Emission Vehicle" and thus not eligible for grants, but the quality of the car is indisputable. Careful drivers might eke out short trips on electric, but you'll be using that engine a lot of the time.

Charging Details

Charging time for a Porsche Cayenne

The table below shows the estimated time to charge your Cayenne from empty to full. For rapid charging, we show the time to charge from 20% - 80%, as charging tends to slow outside this range to protect the battery.

CO2 emissions from UK grid electricity usage (EV Made Easy calculated)*70 gCO2/km

* This metric estimates the environmental impact of driving your electric vehicle based on how the electricity that powers your car is generated. We take the average carbon intensity across the UK grid measured throughout 2021 to calculate the expected grams of CO2 emitted per 1 km driven. The actual number will vary by region, when you charge (e.g. carbon intensity is usually lower overnight period) and whether your electricity comes from more renewable sources than the average.
