The all-wheel drive Porsche Panamera 4 E-Hybrid has been introduced ahead of its debut at the 2016 Paris Motor Show.

Boasting total system output of 462 horsepower, the Porsche Panamera 4 E-Hybrid is being said under European testing rules to be capable of traveling up to 31 miles (50 km) in all-electric mode with a maximum speed of 87 mph (140 km/h). Thanks to 516 pound-feet of torque, the four-door hybrid is capable of going zero-to-62 mph (0-100 km/h) in just 4.6 seconds.

In order to make the performance hybrid sedan a reality, Porsche borrowed technology from the 918 Spyder. So just like the 918 Spyder, the Panamera 4 E-Hybrid’s electric motor pushes power to the wheels as soon as the gas pedal is touched. The gasoline engine being used is a 2.9-liter biturbo V6 that cranks out 330 horsepower and 332 pounds-feet of torque on its own.

“The electric motor is supplied with power via a liquid-cooled lithium-ion battery,” says Porsche. “And despite the fact that the energy content of the battery (which is integrated under the luggage compartment floor) has been increased from 9.4 to 14.1 kWh, its weight has remained the same.”

The 2015 Porsche Panamera S E-Hybrid is EPA rated for up to 15 miles all-electric range, so with the increase in battery expect to see a commensurate uptick in U.S. rated range as well.

Mated to the engine is an eight-speed PDK transmission, which replaces the eight-speed automatic transmission used in the previous model.

Deliveries of the new Porsche Panamera 4 E-Hybrid will begin in mid-April with a worldwide launch following later in 2017. The starting price is expected to be below the Panamera 4S, which starts at $98,300 in the U.S. Pricing for the current 4 E-Hybrid starts at $93,200.
