Porsche Panamera Plug-in Hybrid to be launched in mid-2013 image

The German based automaker Porsche is planning to introduce the Panamera Plug-in Hybrid to the market by mid-2013, promising some interesting features to the luxurious model.

The upcoming 918 Spyder, with its estimated 750,000 dollars price won’t be the only plug-in hybrid in the car manufacturer’s lineup so if you want a “green” Porsche, you can get it cheaper and faster than the 918 Spyder, which has been set to make its debut in late 2013. According to the German carmaker, the Porsche Panamera Plug-in Hybrid has been scheduled to be launched in mid-2013, and the model should have a lot of things in common with the Porsche Panamera S Hybrid.

The Porsche Panamera Plug-in Hybrid will come with a main charger added, and the small nickel-metal hybrid battery will be replaced by a larger lithium-ion unit, and even if we don’t have any official details on this yet, it’s expected to have a final capacity of 12 kWh. The Porsche Panamera Plug-in Hybrid will most likely be powered by a direct-injected supercharged V6 engine and an electric motor, but more details on the “new” powertrain will be announced close to the model’s launch. The only question remaining is how much will the Panamera Plug-in Hybrid cost?
