Porsche is very excited about the new Panamera E-Hybrid, and who can blame them? Hot on the heels of a Le Mans victory with a hybrid racecar, Porsche will have the hottest hybrid sedan on the market. To showcase the new model Porsche took the Panamera 4 E-Hybrid to London along with a very special escort: The 919 Hybrid driven by Mark Webber. The Panamera 4 E-Hybrid is classified as an Ultra Low Emissions Vehicle, and is therefore exempt from the city’s congestion charge. We suspect the 919 got a pass for the day, too.
The brief London tour took the duo past many famous locations. The tour passed Park Lane, the London Eye, Hyde Park Corner, Regent Street, Piccadilly Circus, Trafalgar Square and the Houses of Paliament though not necessarily in that order. According to Webber this was the first time the 919 has been on public streets.
“I was really excited to bring the car into London today, so it was also a highlight for myself. It went really smooth, weather was great, so it ticked a big box.”
