Hi everyone, I am interested in getting a Cayenne v6 3.0 e-hybrid and in my search I am noticing that e-hybrid vehicles between 2015-2017 come as either 245 Kw or 310 Kw supercharged (V 6 Cylinder, 24 valve Super Charger, 2995cc, ) or turbo (V 6 Cylinder, 24 valve Turbo, 2995cc, 340.5 Kw). Based on the numbers, the Turbo seems to have acceleration and KW spec but wanted to kindly ask if there is any preference or recommendation as to whether one is better/more preferred over the other please? (any feedback or opinions would be greatly appreciated ;-))

Jason I have the Cayenne S eHybrid (3.0). Combined total 412 hp. Acceleration mehhhh, I think if I wasn't looking for the max fuel efficiency I would go normal GTS, or Turbo, or whatever. The issue is even in sport mode it starts out with electric motor and that adds a second or so delay in acceleration (in my opinion). Going from electric to gas to me is not a seamless transition. Boost mode is phenomenal though, as you run in gasoline mode and you floor the gas pedal the electric motor kicks in to get you from 312hp to the 400's that's a good feeling. I noticed though my hybrid battery must be at least at 1/3 charge to get that extra umphhhhfff.
