Porsche Automobil Holding SE : Efficient drive systems at Porsche

Efficient drive systems at PorscheWolfgang Hatz, Member of the Executive Board - Research and Development, at the Vienna Motor Symposium

Stuttgart/Vienna. Maximum performance and minimum fuel consumption - the
Dr. Ing. h.c. F. Porsche AG, will continue to set the benchmark with efficient drive systems in the future. Wolfgang Hatz, Member of the Executive Board - Research and Development, places great emphasis on this goal at this year's Vienna Motor Symposium. "Porsche is focusing on the deployment of plug-in hybrid technology in production," Hatz announces. The sports car manufacturer has already taken on a pioneering role with the Porsche 918 Spyder: It redefines driving pleasure, efficiency and performance, uniting the best of two worlds: a combustion engine and an electric drive.

In addition, Hatz underscores the fact that the expansion of electrification in hybrid models and the optimization of the conventional combustion engine will play a major role in future drive system developments. "With the Panamera and the Cayenne, Porsche has already successfully launched two hybrid models on the market. The sales figures for the Porsche Cayenne S Hybrid for 2011 are more than twice as high as the figures of all our competitors combined in this market segment," Hatz says. Porsche is developing more solutions to get even greater efficiency and performance from the synergy effects of combustion engine and electric motor. Furthermore, the potential of conventional combustion engines is far from being exhausted. "That's why, for Porsche, the combustion engine will continue to play a vital role for the drive system of sports cars in the foreseeable future," Hatz explains.
