I preface this by saying that I've had a 2012 and 2016 Cayenne. I took possession of my 2022 Cayenne E-hybrid Coupe in January 2022 and took my time breaking in the engine for over 2,000 miles. Now that I've driven it for a few months with a mix of gas and electric (total 4,800 miles) I must share my latest stats. This was calculated in the Porsche Connect App (screen shot below):

Since refueling the Cayenne 3 weeks ago, these are the stats:
1. Driven a total of 608 miles over 24 hours.
2. 308 of the 608 miles were a mix of i) all electric (driving locally shopping, errands etc) and ii) hybrid mode in 2 longer trips of over 90 miles each.
3. The mixed driving yielded 48 MPG (as advertised, I believe)
4. The best part is that I still have a little less than a half tank of gas left (215 miles: car's estimate for the range of remaining fuel)
5. 2.7 mi/kWh average is quite good, Most of my trips were >3 mi/kWh - but this is summer, so it's what would be expected.

This is beyond my expectations for a car that also performs in both acceleration and handling (air suspension and 4-wheel steering). Of course, if you don't have a similar mix of local and highway, the numbers will differ accordingly - but if you have such a mix, hybrids are the way to go, and this one is amazing all around.

Hi, it depends on the type of driving you do on the trip. In hybrid mode, if it's all highway and you don't use the battery very much, you will get about 30 mpg on nearly all ICE driving (in hybrid, the engine will shut off when coasting downhill, but it is seamless). In my longer 200 mile trips, with both traffic and highway I get ~35 MPG. In the example I used, i did a lot of battery driving during that time. It's the mix of traffic and highway that gives you the advantage. If the battery is completely depleted because you have been in a lot of traffic, then you get on the highway, the car will charge the battery enough to maintain performance. If the battery is low and you're on a trip, you also have a setting to charge the battery while driving, so you have a lot of charge when you arrive at your destination. Also, if you opt for the Innodrive option, and you plot a trip, the car will anticipate traffic and urban driving in the trip and save the battery use for those locations. The battery is not large and gives you a total of about 25-30 miles. Hybrids are for those of us who have mostly mixed driving, that's when it shines. You always have the option to put it into Sport or Sport+ and it's a regular Porsche. if you plan to do that often, get the Chrono package so the dial is on the steering wheel.

Hi Cometguy, you're correct, it would be nice to have a larger battery if you're looking to use E-power mostly. In my experience with the 2022 18-kWh battery pack fully charged, the car calculates the range to be between 22-35 miles, depending its previous milage and driving habits (See below). But in actuality on E-power, driving locally (20-40 mph, no faster than ~55 mph on occasions) I get about 20-22 miles of range. Certainly, at higher speeds you will get much less, that's why you would use hybrid mode for that, where e-mode would kick-in during traffic. In the example below, I just fill up both battery and tank.
