Porsche Panamera S Hybrid : 6.8l/100 km (34.6 mpg) with Michelin green tyres
Porsche finally unveil the Panamera S Hybrid, and officially announce fuel consumption of 6.8l /100 km (41.5 mpg)! This outstanding performance was achieved with Michelin’s “low rolling resistance tyres” which are available in their catalogue. With standard tyres, it consumes 7.1l/100 km (39.7 mpg).
Following the Cayenne Hybrid, Porsche have once again demonstrated their desire to combine performance with respect for the environment. To do so, the new model is fitted with a 333 hp, 3L V6 engine originally by Audi combined with an electric motor which delivers a combined power of 380 horsepower and torque of 580 Nm. These performances are certainly worthy of the Porsche brand, with a top speed of 270 km/h and 0 to 100 km/h in just 6 seconds.
The figures are even more impressive when it comes to fuel consumption and CO2 emissions, which equate to 159 g/km CO2 with Michelin green tyres, and 167 g/km with standard tyres.
With the Panamera, Michelin proves once and for all that low rolling resistance tyres are perfectly compatible with high-performance and can have a significant impact on fuel consumption.
The specially developed tyre is an all-season sports tyre, similar to the Pilot Sport A/S Plus N0.
