Before the new generation of plug-in hybrids, Porsche dabbled in more straightforward petrol/electric models. Even without the latest cutting-edge technology, the Panamera’s 159g/km CO2 emissions and 41.5mpg efficiency made it more frugal than the diesel version. 

Porsche Panamea S E-hybrid 2013 review

It was faster, too, claiming 0-62mph in just six seconds. In electric mode, the Porsche could also cover just over a mile at speeds of up to 53mph. Elsewhere, the Hybrid is standard Panamera, with agile handling, a posh interior and hatchback versatility, let down only by grabby brakes.
