The Mercury Cars Guide : April 10th 2010
24--- Classifieds 62 300 400 • carsguide.com.au Saturday, April 10, 2010 Putting some spice in hybrid A hybrid powerhouse is Porsche's headline act for the new Cayenne, which hits showrooms in July. Neil McDonald reports We've never had a hybrid performance car before. Our customers are waiting to see and drive this new technology' SPORTY: The 2010 Porsche Cayenne hybridis more powerful and fuel efficient. P ORCHE'S latest starlet, the Cayenne hybrid S, will cost $159,900, putting it in the middle of the five-model Cayenne lineup. The newcomer has about more standard equipment, worth about $12,000, sportier per- formance and fuel sav- ing reductions of up to 23 per cent. It is powered by a supercharged 245kW 3.0-litre V6 and a 34kW electric motor with a combined torque out- put of 580Nm from 1000 revs. It uses just 8.2 litres/ 100km, has CO2 emis- sions of 193g/km and can be driven for short distances at speeds up to 60km/h on electric power only. Porsche Cars Aust- ralia spokesman Paul Ellis expects strong interest. ''We've never had a hybrid per- formance car before,'' Ellis says. However, he is confident that up to 15 per cent of all Cayennes sold here will be hybrid. ''Our customers are waiting to see and drive this new technology,'' he says. The Cayenne traditionally makes up between 35 per cent and 45 per cent of total Porsche sales locally. ''I'd expect this figure to carry over to the new car,'' Ellis says. ''However, prices have risen only marginally and we're putting more equipment into the cars.'' Cayenne prices have gone up 1 per cent, ranging be- tween $1500 and $2700 depending on the model. The line-up will open with the V8 Cayenne S, the V6 Cayenne S Hybrid and twin-turbo- charged V8 Cay- enne Turbo. A V6 petrol and V6 turbo-diesel arrive in August to complete the five-model line-up. The range gets a new eight-speed Tiptronic gearbox, extra-light all- wheel drive system and a weight reduction of up to 180kg depending on the model. jmotors.com.au email@example.com Glenorchy 275 Main Road, Glenorchy Phone: 6 213 3 315 Brian Anning 0418 531 853 Chris Wakefield 0400 635 446 Allan Gebel 0428 729 659 Hobart 1a Brisbane Street, Hobart Phone: 6213 3300 Warren Amos 0417 544 829 Jason Spong 0408 473 756 Easy finance available with DJ Financial Services 04 Mazda6 classic hatch 2.3 litre with front side and curtain airbags, rear spoiler, cruise control, climate control,ABS, 6CD player, power windows and mirrors.
