German luxury car manufacturer Porsche has launched the second-generation Cayenne in India. Porsche has launched five variants, Cayenne, Cayenne S, Cayenne Turbo, Cayenne Diesel and Cayenne S Hybrid, in the Indian market.

The ex-showroom prices of the New Porsche Cayenne for the five models are, Cayenne (Rs 65,82,000), Cayenne S (Rs 78,62,000), Cayenne Turbo (Rs 1,27,10,000), Cayenne Diesel (Rs 59,22,000) and Cayenne S Hybrid (Rs 75,46,000).

Ashish Chordia, Director, Porsche India, stressed on the new features that satisfy the customer’s demand in the local market. “We are extremely proud to launch the new Cayenne. This model represents the perfect balance between elegant design, powerful driving dynamics and a high level of comfort. Despite all of this, efficiency has significantly improved making this model an outstanding trendsetter in its segment.”

At present, the company has two showrooms and plans to open five more by the end of calendar year 2010.

“We already have a strong order bank for the new Cayenne and with new Porsche Centres set to open in Chandigarh, Chennai, Kochi, Hyderabad and Ahmadabad, we expect it to grow even more”, added Chordia

The new Cayenne range is highly fuel efficient. While the Cayenne S Hybrid gives a mileage of 8.2 litres per 100 kilometres, the Cayenne Diesel with its three-litre V6 engines gives a mileage of 7.4 litre per 100 km. Fuel economy is improved on the high-torque Cayenne S, too, which is equipped with a 4.8 litre V8 engine. Cayenne Turbo, which is strapped with 4.8 litres V8 bi-turbo, consumes 11.5 litre per 100 km.

“Yet in today’s world, it is clearly not enough to pour on more power, there must be a clear, simultaneous improvement in fuel consumption. We have optimised this objective to a maximum by reducing CO2 emission of up to 26 per cent and reduction in fuel consumption of up to 23 per cent less,” Porsche’s Managing Director (Middle East), Deesch Papke, said.
