Not content with making an SUV, Porsche builds a hybrid SUV
What it Is
Porsche Cayenne Hybrid Concept Preview – 2007 Los Angeles Auto Show: Porsche gave the Cayenne Hybrid its North American debut at the Los Angeles Auto Show, just in time for clean diesel. Cayenne uses a “true hybrid” design, in other words, the electric motor and clutch sit between the gasoline engine and the transmission. Steering and braking systems that normally put a drag on the engine are electric in the Cayenne Hybrid, all in the name of saving fuel. Porsche says the hybrid Cayenne will hit the road at the end of the decade.
