The Panamera S E-Hybrid is a lean, green machine. It’s got a powerful electric motor and a high-performance battery that can be recharged either at home or at public charging stations. The result is an electric drive that produces 95 hp (more than double the power of the previous model’s 47 hp electric motor) and can do zero to sixty in 5.2 seconds on its way to a top track speed of 167 mph.
