Since the Audi Q7 V12 TDI received so much attention on being a great environmentally friendly SUV, Porsche figured it was time they gave their least successful model, the Porsche Cayenne, some needed attention. The new Porsche Cayenne made its debut early December of 2006, and now Porsche has confirmed that they will be introducing a hybrid version of the SUV in 2009. The hybrid Porsche Cayenne will only come in 4WD.
“With the technical package of the hybrid, we can pick and choose the engines,” says Winkler. “It will be available throughout the [Cayenne] range, and not just on a flagship model.”
