Looking to the future

Eurocars (Pvt) Ltd, the official Porsche importer in Sri Lanka, launched the new Porsche Panamera S E-Hybrid today at The Cinnamon Grand Colombo. Porsche Panamera S E-Hybrid is the world’s first plug-in hybrid in the luxury class and it is equipped with 416 hp system power.

The Panamera S E-Hybrid underscores its exceptional positioning with an even more expressive design language in style of the new sports car generations that are marked by tighter lines, more pronounced contours and newly shaped body elements.

The Panamera S E-Hybrid is a systematically advanced development of the parallel full hybrids with a more powerful electric motor, a higher-performance battery that supplies more energy and the ability to charge it externally from the electrical grid. The electric drive produces 95 hp (70 kW), which is more than double the power of the previous model’s electric motor at 47 hp (34 kW). It draws its energy from a newly developed lithium-ion battery, which at 9.4 kWh has over five times the 1.7 kWh energy capacity of the previous battery in nickel metal hydride technology. Depending on the type of external electrical supply, the battery may be fully charged within as little as a few hours, and the battery is recharged by electrical system recuperation while driving.
 
The Panamera S E-Hybrid far exceeds the driving performance of the previous model. In addition, the previous model’s NEDC fuel consumption of 7.1 l/100 km was reduced by 56 percent to 3.1 l/100 km. At the same time, its all-electric driving performance was substantially improved with regard to electric acceleration, the electric range and electric top speed. An intensive pure electric driving experience is possible without any fuel consumption or local emissions, which is especially advantageous in the urban environment. The electric driving range of the Panamera S E-Hybrid was determined to be 36 kilometres in NEDC-based testing. Driving range may vary in real operation, since air conditioning and heating are deactivated in NEDC test conditions, for example. A realistic all-electric driving range in everyday operation would lie somewhere between 18 and 36 km – and under particularly favourable conditions it could even exceed this range. The Panamera with the new hybrid drive can reach speeds of up to 135 km/h in all-electric operation.
The acceleration time from a standstill to 100 km/h was shortened by half a second to 5.5 seconds. The electric boost function helps here, in which the performance of the electric motor boosts that of the combustion engine. Boosting can also be activated by kick-down – such as in overtaking situations. The car’s top speed is 270 km/h. The parallel full hybrid concept developed by Porsche also offers “coasting” at higher speeds, which refers to free coasting with the internal combustion engine shut off and energy recovery by generating electricity.
 
The comfortable eight-speed automatic Tiptronic S operates in the Panamera S E-Hybrid and this transmission creates optimal conditions for further development of other efficiency functions. For example, the extended start-stop function now deactivates the engine earlier while coasting to a stop, which saves more fuel. The new Panamera S E-Hybrid also offers many differentiating exterior characteristics. Further customisation is achieved by the numerous options that are offered, including the new LED headlights, which give the Gran Turismo a very special appearance.

    The 'Porsche' or the 'porch' sounds too complicated and technical for local beauties to have unveiled it!

    This is, of course, an obscene advert in a country where many people are going hungry.

    CAN ANYONE TELL ME FROM WHERE I CAN BUY THIS CAR,

    OMG Thursday, 28 November 2013 01:14 PM

    I hope Eurocars (Pvt) Ltd, invited all politicians, sons and goons. They are the only people who could afford these toys.

    I guess this is all that is missing in SL!

    When we cannot afford to eat at least katta sambol and pol roti with the soaring cost of B'onions, Maldive fish and coconut how can we even think about looking to the future?

    Truth be Told Thursday, 28 November 2013 01:39 PM

    How many people in Sri lanka--one percent perhaps?--can afford a luxury vehicle of any sort? ....In fact, the vast majority of the families in this country cannot even pay for a new trishaw.

    This is one of the Mahina Chinthana development
    Average people can't afford a bicycle ; whose IDE this to import this luxury

    parliament ministers rush to buy one of the dream car for them ,,,,,,i

    Ken Thursday, 28 November 2013 10:19 PM

    The reason why you are seeing more of these luxury vehicles advertised is because more people can now afford than in the past. A lot more people can afford and of course the much improved and improving road infrastructure encourages more sales.

    I think it's a great sigh of the confidence International companies have in investing in Sr Lanka. I mean in 5 years the changes in Sri Lanka I am shocked each time I visit at the improvements.
