2010 New York Preview: 2011 Porsche Cayenne S Hybrid to make world debut, sales start this fall

The 2011 Porsche Cayenne SUV will make its stateside debut next week at the 2010 New York Auto Show. The first production hybrid model from Porsche, the new Cayenne S Hybrid, will make its world debut in New York.

The North American Cayenne model range will include four models: the 2011 Cayenne, Cayenne S, Cayenne Turbo and the Cayenne S Hybrid.

The Cayenne S and Turbo models will go on sale in July, with the Cayenne and Cayenne S Hybrid will reach dealer showrooms this fall.

Pricing for all models will be announced closer to launch dates.

Refresher: The 2011 Porsche Cayenne S Hybrid is powered by a 333-hp 3 liter supercharged V6 gasoline engine mated to a 47-hp electric-motor, allowing it to produce a total output of 380-hp and a maximum torque of 427 b-ft. Porsche says that that allows the same performance level of a V8 engine while increasing fuel-economy by 20 percent.
