Porsche Cayenne Coupe hybrid imminent

The coupe range is quickly filling out with numerous powertrain options.

Porsche has confirmed plans to launch a hybrid version of the new Cayenne Coupe.

Following the launch of the midrange Cayenne S Coupe, a Porsche exec informed journalists that the company will continue to expand the lineup with new powertrains "step by step" including a hybrid edition sometime this year, according to Motor1.

The automaker has not announced which of its hybrid powertrains has been selected for the first electrified Cayenne Coupe, though the Cayenne E-Hybrid's configuration is a likely candidate that would deliver 455 horsepower and 516 pound-feet of torque.

The coupe will presumably get a more powerful hybrid edition at some point, likely on par with the Panamera Turbo S E-Hybrid that boasts 680 horsepower and 626 pound-feet of torque.
