Its been a long wait but finally Porsche’s new Panamera Hybrid cars are coming out of the factory and delivering to customers in the UK.

It succeeds the earlier 4 S E-Hybrid with a 31-mile electric range and combined fuel consumption of 113mpg, together with an official 0-62mph time of 4.6sec and a 173mph top speed.

At the heart of the Panamera 4 E-Hybrid is a newly developed petrol-electric drivetrain that is also set to appear in next year’s Cayenne E-Hybrid.
