Battery-operated lights on ice skates, electric lighting and an electric doorbell at home, the first ideas for his own electric bicycle – Prof. Dr.-Ing. h.c. Ferdinand
The world’s first hybrid vehicle was unveiled to the public on 14 April 1900 at the World Exposition in Paris by Ludwig Lohner and the young Ferdinand
The recuperated energy powered a mechanical flywheel energy storage system in the form of an additional electric motor that was located in the front passenger area. If the driver called up the energy stored there, the flywheel was braked electromagnetically in the generator mode. This meant that the two electric motors on the front axle received sufficient electricity to provide an additional power output of up to 150kW (204hp) for up to eight seconds, meaning the 911 GT3 R Hybrid temporarily changed into a four-wheel drive.
One of the main deciding factors for the breakthrough of E-mobility is infrastructure. By founding the joint venture IONITY, the BMW Group, Daimler AG, Ford Motor Company and the Volkswagen Group, along with Audi and

*Data determined in accordance with the Worldwide Harmonized Light Vehicles Test Procedure (WLTP) as required by law. You can find more information on WLTP at www.porsche.com/wltp. For Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicle (PHEV) range and Equivalent All Electric Range (EAER) figures are determined with the battery fully charged, using a combination of both battery power and fuel.
Values are provided for comparison only. To the extent that fuel and energy consumption or CO₂ values are given as ranges, these do not relate to a single, individual car and do not constitute part of the offer. Optional features and accessories can change relevant vehicle parameters such as weight, rolling resistance and aerodynamics which may result in a change in fuel or energy consumption and CO₂ values. Vehicle loading, topography, weather and traffic conditions, as well as individual driving styles, can all affect the actual fuel consumption, energy consumption, electrical range, and CO₂ emissions of a car.
