New Drivetrain Technologies

Porsche has already achieved the entry into electromobility by introducing plug-in hybrid models. The Panamera S E-Hybrid is supplied as a series model in the market and the high-profile 918 Spyder uses the plug-in hybrid technology. This is based on a high-voltage battery for the electric motor which stores significantly more energy than in conventional full hybrids. The outcome is that a fully charged battery will enable the Panamera S E-Hybrid to travel for up to 36 kilometers solely powered by electricity. When the two different drivetrain systems are combined, it only consumes 3.1 liters of gasoline per 100 kilometers and generates emissions amounting to just 71 grams of CO2 (NEDC). The company has concluded a joint-venture agreement with the green electricity supplier “Lichtblick” in order to keep the actual CO2 footprint of Porsche vehicles as low as possible. The utility company supplies the electricity used to charge the batteries entirely from renewable energy sources. Porsche is also committed to plug-in hybrid technology in the future – a potential launch in the Cayenne and Macan is already being discussed.

Innovative Vehicle Concepts

Intelligent lightweight construction facilitates more driving efficiency. This concept uses weight-reducing materials such as carbon-fiber reinforced plastic, aluminum, and magnesium. Downsizing is also an important aspect of enhancing performance and reducing consumption. This involves the capacity volume and the weight of the engine being reduced for the same or even greater power output. A range of other concepts and technologies provide further efficiency enhancement measures and means of reducing emissions. These include “coasting”, which is achieved by disengaging the engine, direct injection of gasoline, and cleaning the exhaust emissions by rapid heating up of the catalytic convertor system.

Long Life and Recycling Capability

Two thirds of all Porsche cars ever built are still being driven on the roads today. This has primarily been made possible by the durable and wear-resistant materials used in manufacture. Every Porsche car has been ideally designed for recycling if a vehicle has to be taken out of service. All the large plastic components used have been labeled with their material specification to facilitate subsequent material-specific recycling. The Porsche “PN 1002” company standard also defines requirements extending beyond the statutory regulations for product development compliant with recycling, and this standard also applies to suppliers and sub-suppliers. A new Porsche vehicle already complies with the statutory requirements of the future, which specify a reuse capability of 95 percent.

Intelligent and Safe Technology

Intelligent technology and assistance systems ensure safe driving. For example, Porsche Stability Management (PSM) is installed in all Porsche models and is responsible for maintaining optimum traction and stability for the vehicle. Braking technologies such as the Porsche Ceramic Composite Brake (PCCB) or lighting concepts developed in-house to provide optimum lighting for the road guarantee the safety of our vehicles. Adaptive LED brake lights provide warning of hazardous situations. Porsche is currently developing another intelligent assistance system. The InnoDrive drive system uses navigation data to calculate information for driving optimized for consumption.
