2020 Porsche Panamera vs 2020 Porsche Panamera E-Hybrid

Serving Brentwood, TN

For Nashville drivers who refuse to compromise on performance when buying a luxury sedan, the Porsche Panamera is a natural choice. The Panamera is a full-size luxury car with space for five adults, and it also is designed to deliver sports car-like performance. At Porsche of Nashville, many of our valued customers inquire about the differences between the 2020 Porsche Panamera and the Panamera E-Hybrid. The base MSRP for the latter option is approximately $15,000 higher, and further review reveals other essential differences between these two vehicles.


The Panamera for 2020 is offered with two powertrains across multiple trims. The entry-level powertrain is a turbocharged V6, 3.0-liter engine that delivers 330 horsepower. Its top speed is 164 miles per hour. The top powertrain available for the 2020 Panamera is a 2.9-liter, twin-turbocharged V6 that produces 440 horsepower, and it has a top speed of 179 horsepower with a slightly improved rate of acceleration. In comparison, the Panamera e-Hybrid is also available with two powertrain designs. The base option is a twin-turbocharged V6, 2.9-liter engine mated to a lithium-ion battery. It comes with an on-board charger, and it produces 457 combined horsepower. If you choose to drive a higher trim level, your Panamera e-Hybrid will come with a 4.0-liter, twin-turbocharged V8 with the same battery and charger. This combination provides you with 677 horsepower and an acceleration rate of up to 60 miles per hour in 3.2 seconds.


Throughout the exteriors, the 2020 Porsche Panamera and Panamera e-Hybrid are comparable with only a few subtle differences. Their overall profiles are flawlessly identically on a trim-by-trim basis. These cars show off the brand's signature rounded nose and swooping hood. The large, triangular headlights angle back dramatically. The sides have a power scoop near the front fenders that carries toward the rear, and this unique feature expresses the cars' high-performance capabilities. At the rear, you will notice a light bar that stretches around the entire trunk lid as well as quad exhaust tips. The most noticeable difference between these two vehicles is found at the front end. The Panamera has a black lower air vent that is divided up into three sections, and that shows off two horizontal bars. The Panamera e-Hybrid introduces an angular element to this feature. The horizontal bars are missing, and the two side air vents have a chrome element running through them.


The interior design and features are comparable across most trims. Depending on the trim that you select, your car may come with a rear entertainment system, numerous assistive driving technologies, a panoramic sunroof, front and rear infotainment system displays, and climate control systems, a Bose or Burmester premium sound system, leather material, heated seats, and many other desired features.
