The arrival of the brand's flagship SUV was celebrated at a special event held by Porsche India at the Sahara Star hotel in Mumbai, where all three derivatives were showcased, following an exclusive reveal.
Deliveries of the new Cayenne variants are likely to commence shortly. The cabin comes loaded with all the connected features Porsche has on offer. The mighty Turbo gets a 4.0-litre twin-turbo V8 putting out 550bhp and 750Nm. While the Cayenne Turbo can accelerate from 0 to 100kmph in 3.9 seconds, the Cayenne can do the same in 5.9 seconds. The E-Hybrid variant belts out 462bhp and features a boost strategy, adopted from the 918 Spyder hypercar. The e-Hybrid version can travel up to 44 kilometres with a top speed of 135kph in all-electric mode.
In terms of design, the new Cayenne borrows several cues from the Panamera.
Some of its key updates include Porsche Dynamic Light System (PLDS)/ LED Matrix Beam headlamps, a new 12.3-inch touchscreen system, instrument console with a central analogue tachometer and two 7-inch full-HD displays, lane keeping assist with traffic sign recognition, Lane Changing Assist, traffic jam assist, adaptive cruise control and park assist. There is no diesel powertrain even as an option with the new-gen Cayenne. Bookings opened in June this year while bookings of the Turbo opened in September. The Taycan aims to be the fastest series production electric auto around Germany's Nordschleife racetrack, with a lap time of less than 8 minutes.
- The Cayenne is the highest selling Porsche in the country. Additionally, the Cayenne is available with rear-axle steering and mixed-size tires derived from the 911, which improve agility, stability, and safety. Similar to the 911 Turbo, the spoiler adapts the aerodynamics and downforce to suit the driving conditions. The rear apron, exterior mirrors and door side trims are finished in the vehicle color.
German sports auto manufacturer Porsche has launched the latest generation of their flagship SUV model, Cayenne, in India starting at a base price of Rs.1.19 crores.
