Set to arrive in the United States early next year, the models have a plug-in hybrid powertrain that features a twin-turbo 4.0-liter V8 engine that produces 541 hp (403 kW / 548 PS).

As Porsche ramps up for the launch of its Taycan electric sedan late this year, today it has a new cheerleader for the performance boost of electric motors at the top of its SUV lineup: the 2020 Porsche Cayenne Turbo S E-Hybrid. It's backed up by an electric motor that develops an additional 134 hp (100 kW / 136 PS).

Pairing an old-fashioned internal combustion engine with an electric motor, the new model becomes the most powerful the carmaker is offering under this name. This enables the crossovers to have a combined output of 670 hp (550 kW / 679 PS) and 663 lb-ft (900 Nm) of torque. That's enough grunt to get the crossover to 60 miles per hour in a manufacturer-claimed 3.6 seconds and take it to a top speed of 183 mph. The models also have body colored wheel arch extensions. Porsche Traction Management (PTM) all-wheel drive is standard, as is the Sport Chrono Package.

An assortment of options will be available including a Lightweight Sport Package. The Coupe E-Hybrid also gets carbon-ceramic brakes, an active anti-roll bar, and other goodies. Inside, there's an Alcantara-wrapped heated sport steering wheel, carbon fiber trim and two-tone Houndstooth seat centers.

With a total output of 670 hp and 663 lb-ft of torque, the Turbo S E-Hybrid can hit a top speed of 183 miles per hour and accelerate to 60 miles per hour in 3.6 seconds. The price is just as high as the output, with the Turbo S E-Hybrid Coupe starting at $165,750 including destination. It puts out a net 455 horsepower and 516 pound-feet of torque, enough to shove the auto to 60 miles per hour in 4.7 seconds before topping out at 157 mph. The new Cayenne Turbo S E-Hybrid is fitted with the same five-position active roof spoiler as on the standard Cayenne Turbo.

Regardless of your tastes or budget, you'll need to wait a few months to get your hands on the latest crop of Cayenne models, as the Turbo S E-Hybrid, Coupe Turbo S E-Hybrid, and Coupe E-Hybrid are all due to arrive during the first quarter of 2020.

Of course, a plug-in hybrid is also supposed to be efficient, and with a 14.1 kWh lithium-ion battery, both models are capable of a combined fuel consumption figure of between 3.7 to 3.9 litres per 100 km on the NEDC cycle, as well as an all-electric range of up to 40 km.
