Porsche has asid the Cayenne Coupe will go hybrid when it comes out later this year.
The news will allow the company to comete with the likes of BMW and Mercedes-Benz, both of which have hybrid SUV models launching this year.
There will be three combustion-engine variants - a base model, sport model and turbo version. However, now we know that there will be a plug-in hybrid called the Cayenne Coupe E-Hybrid.
Speaking at CNet's roadshow, the Porsche spokesperson said "you can expect a hybrid version". They did not reveal when it would launch, but it's expect to come out months after the regular models hit the market this November.
A standard version of the Cayenne already exists, so we imagine the coupe iteration will come along with the same turbocharged V6 engine and 14.1 kWh lithium-ion battery.
According to Porsche showrooms, the Cayenne E-Hybrid starts at US$79,000. Considering Coupe versions of most Porsche motors come in between US$5,000 and US$10,000 more expensive than regular variants, we'd expect the Porsche Cayenne Coupe E-Hybrid to cost around US$90,000.
