2010 Porsche Cayenne Hybrid Will be Able to Drive at 70mph Using Only the Electric Motor

When the new Porsche Cayenne Hybrid comes to market in 2009 or 2010 it will feature the ability to travel at 70mph without the use of the gas powered motor.

The gasoline engine will help propel the SUV up to 70mph and once it achieves that cruising speed the engine will shut off and the electric motor will be used to maintain that speed.

The hybrid is being developed with Audi and Bosch and it will achieve 26.8 mpg. It is expected to start around $44,000.
