Porsche launches the new Porsche Cayenne in India
2010: The second generation Porsche Cayenne was recently launched at Porsche Centre Mumbai by Precision Cars India, the official Porsche importer for India.
As a premiere, the Cayenne is offered as a hybrid version, called the Cayenne S Hybrid. The Cayenne S Hybrid combines the performance of an eight-cylinder with the economy of a six-cylinder running on much less fuel. All Cayenne vehicles offer more power on less fuel, greater efficiency and lower CO2 emissions. Compared with the former generation, fuel consumption is down by 23 per cent, making the new models trendsetters in their respective segments.
The range starts with the Cayenne, the Cayenne Diesel, Cayenne S, Cayenne Turbo and the Cayenne S Hybrid.
Deesch Papke, Managing Director of Porsche Middle East and Africa, said, "The new Cayenne features a completely new exterior and newly defined luxury interior. Yet in today’s world, it’s clearly not enough to pour on more power; there must be a clear, simultaneous improvement in fuel consumption. We have optimized this objective to a maximum by reducing CO2 emissions by 26 per cent and a reduction in fuel consumption by 23 per cent less. This car clearly brings a new dimension to the SUV market."
Ashish Chordia, Director, Porsche India, emphasised on the new features that meet the customer’s demand in the local market. "This model represents the perfect balance between elegant design, powerful driving dynamics and a high level of comfort. Despite all of this, efficiency has significantly improved making this model an outstanding trendsetter in its segment."
The ex-showroom prices, excluding all local taxes and duties, for the new Cayenne models in India are: Cayenne: INR 65,82,000; Cayenne S: INR 76,82,000; Cayenne Turbo: INR 1,27,10,000; Cayenne Diesel: 59,22,000; and Cayenne S Hybrid: INR 75,46,000.
