Part of the entirely restyled Cayenne family, the new plug-in hybrid version of Porsche's premium SUV will be unveiled in a world premiere in Paris. The model will share the spotlight on the Porsche stand with two other hybrids: the Panamera S E-Hybrid and the 918 Spyder.

The Cayenne S E-Hybrid houses exactly the same technology as the Panamera S E-Hybrid: a 333hp V6 engine paired with a 95hp electric motor, which allows the SUV to travel 36km in all-electric mode. Porsche announces 0 to 100km/h acceleration in just 5.9 seconds and a top speed of 243km/h. The battery charges in just two and a half hours through an industrial power outlet, or just under four hours through a standard outlet.

Like the rest of the new Cayenne line, the hybrid has a wide grille like the one seen on the Macan. On the inside, Porsche offers a new sports steering wheel derived from the one seen on the 918 Spyder.

Altogether, five versions of the Cayenne will go on sale just after the Paris Motor Show: the Cayenne S, Cayenne Turbo, Cayenne Diesel, Cayenne S Diesel and, for the first time, Cayenne S E-Hybrid (plug-in). Prices are expected to range from €68,000 (around $86,250) for the Cayenne Diesel to €130,000 (around $165,000) for the Turbo version. The Porsche Cayenne S E-Hybrid is expected to sell for around €84,000 (around $106,500).
