The milestone vehicle is a new Panamera S E-Hybrid in “rhodium-silver metallic.” This vehicle – the world’s first plug-in hybrid of the luxury class - made its debut before a world audience at the Shanghai Auto Show at the end of April 2013.
The Panamera S E-Hybrid combines efficiency, sportiness and comfort with a very personal note: the number of possible combinations of factory installed exterior and interior color combinations and decors is over 1,500.
