The 2024 Porsche Cayenne Turbo E-Hybrid is more powerful than ever

Porsche power while sipping gas - what's not to love?

Porsche Cayenne Turbo E-Hybrid
Porsche wants 80 percent of its entire lineup to have fully electric motors by 2030 to meet the EV adoption target. So far, it has released only one fully electric model — the Porsche Taycan. However, it plans to introduce four new EV models to its lineup by 2026, including the Cayenne EV. Of course, Porsche will still offer hybrid models for those who love the high performance that comes with infusing a gasoline engine and an electric motor.

If you’re into SUVs or coupes, the 2024 Porsche Cayenne Turbo E-Hybrid is more powerful than any Cayenne ever made. More succinctly, it’s engineered with a twin-turbocharged V8 engine that can produce 591 horsepower and an electric motor that adds an extra 174 horsepower. In total, the 2024 Porsche Cayenne Turbo E-Hybrid is a mean machine with up to 729 horsepower and 700 lb-ft. of torque. This is way more power than the 2023 Turbo S E Hybrid.

On the race track, the 2024 Porsche Cayenne Turbo E-Hybrid is capable of accelerating from 0 to 60 mph in 3.5 seconds. This makes it one of the fastest SUVs in the world. However, it’s still not fast enough to beat the Porsche Cayenne Turbo GT, which can accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in 3.1 seconds. Then again, it has more horsepower than the 2024 Cayenne Turbo GT — this means you can modify it to accelerate faster.

The 2024 Cayenne Turbo E-Hybrid also comes with a 25.9 kWh battery. Porsche hasn’t revealed how many miles you should expect to drive using the battery, but if the current 2023 model offers 20 miles of EV-only range with a 14.1 kWh battery, the 2024 Cayenne Turbo E-Hybrid should have at least 30 miles of EV-only range. Better yet, you should be able to charge the battery in less than 2.5 hours using a level 1 home charger.

Another cool thing about the upcoming Cayenne is that it features an adaptive air suspension system with two-valve and two-chamber technology to improve handling and comfort. All the other updates that were introduced in the 2024 Porsche Cayenne are also available in the 2024 Cayenne Turbo E-Hybrid.

If you want the SUV model, pricing starts at $146,900 without the delivery fee. But if you prefer the 2024 Cayenne Turbo E-Hybrid Coupe, it’s slightly more expensive by $4,500. Porsche says customers should expect delivery between May and June of 2024.

It's not breaking news that EVs have been all the rage over the last decade. Elon Musk and Tesla dominate news wires, while companies like Kia and Hyundai are tripping over themselves trying to get newer and better electric options to showroom floors. Beyond that, we've seen plenty of reports that the electric revolution is better for our health, as well as the planet, and is an inevitable change we simply have to learn to embrace... or is it? But, with EV sales beginning to stagnate at the end of 2023, suddenly, we are seeing something many didn't expect, and according to Akio Toyoda, chairman of Toyota, consumers are "finally seeing reality."

A lot has changed in the autoverse in the last couple of decades. Looking forward to new cars meant high-horsepower, V-8 speed machines like the mind-bendingly fast Chevy Corvette Z06 or the captivating BMW Z8. Even a decade ago, the concept of a fast and exciting hybrid like Bimmer's enigmatic i8 was at the forefront of technological wonderment. But with the dawn of 2024, we have since readjusted our expectations to the current automotive climate. Our pulse still quickens at the idea of massive power, no matter how it is produced. However, with the onset of the electric revolution, a car's range has become a number that is almost, if not more, exciting. The following are what we think are the nine best electric cars on the market in 2024.

 9. Chevrolet Bolt
In terms of excitement, being cost-effective isn't precisely exhilarating... except when paying that monthly car note. So, while the 2024 Chevy Bolt's main feature is its ability to allow you to drive to the grocery store and buy groceries, it also happens to be aesthetically appealing. With a base price of just $27,495, the Bolt offers total electric transportation with an EPA-estimated range of up to 259 miles. If space is more of a priority than range, then the crossover Bolt SUV may be preferred. In either case, Chevy's low-cost EV is one worth keeping an eye on in 2024.
