Porsche has updated its flagship SUV, the Cayenne, for 2024 and there are some changes worth mentioning. While the company isn’t going fully-electric with the Cayenne yet, it has refreshed its entire lineup. That includes the plug-in hybrid Cayenne E-Hybrid.
The Cayenne is now available with the Porsche Driver Experience, which is the instrument cluster and infotainment layout that first debuted on the all-electric Taycan. Important functions are moved close to the steering wheel, and makes more room for center console storage.
It should be noted, though, that the air vent controls are manually adjustable on the new Cayenne.
Porsche’s built in infotainment system supports wireless phone duplication and built-in Apple Music and Spotify. An optional passenger display is also available, like on Taycan. It’s impossible for the driver to see the passenger display when it’s active thanks to a special coating on the display.
A new electric motor on the E-Hybrid has 174 hp of output, which makes the system total 463 hp. The onboard battery is now 25.9 kWh, which should help improve all electric driving range. Porsche isn’t saying how much its improved yet, but it should be noticeable.
Also, the onboard AC charger now peaks at 11 kW, which means it’ll fully charger in 2.5 hours.
Standard equipment is improved for 2024, and includes slick Matrix Design LED headlights, Porsche Active Suspension Management, 20-inch wheels, Lane Keep and Change Assist, Comfort Access, and a 15 watt wireless charger.
With delivery, the updated Cayenne E-Hybrid starts at $93,350 for the SUV version, and $97,350 for the not-a-coupe Coupé. As with all Porsche announcements, order banks are open right now.
The updated Cayenne looks pretty slick, and the E-Hybrid should be quite potent. With the updates from Taycan on board, it should feel fresh and modern.
Deliveries are expected to start this summer.
