3 TOP-RATED LUXURY ECO-FRIENDLY CARS – Since that young teenager – known as Greta Thunberg – started her climate change protest, the world seems to have had a change of direction, and some brands were smart enough to turn the sustainability concerns into a real business.
However, there are some fields – such as the technological, cosmetic or scientific one – which have struggled more than the others to align with the dutiful restrictions.
Clearly, the automotive world had to adapt to the climate change needs as well.
But combining an eco-friendly behaviour with luxury cars could be an oxymoron, due to the difficulties of obtaining high performances with low air pollution. But it can be done.
A lot of car brands think so: Porsche, Land Rover and Audi just to name a few of them.
1 – Porsche Panamera Turbo S E-hybrid – 3 TOP-RATED LUXURY ECO-FRIENDLY CARS
Porsche is well-known as an high-quality brand, famous for its sporty models all around the world, and the most luxurious one has always been Panamera.
Combining a biturbo engine of 4,0 litres capacity (404 kW/550 CV) with an electric one (100 kW/136 CV), the Panamera Turbo S E-hybrid represents the new frontier of a sporty vehicle which is respectful of the environment, and it can reach 100 km of speed in a nearly 3,4 seconds time.
Furthermore, Porsche Panamera keeps on being considered suitable for a family use: the driving position is easy to access and very wide with all touch controls easy to reach. The roof line is higher than the sporty version, and on the trunk side the load capacity of 425 liters is extendable up to 1,295 by reclining the rear seats.
2 – Range Rover Phev P400e – 3 TOP-RATED LUXURY ECO-FRIENDLY CARS
Land Rover targets people who want to combine space, comfort and security with luxury and sophistication.
Keeping up with the current trends, Land Rover launched a new version of this most successful car: the Range Rover Phev P400e.
Going from 0 to 100 km/h in 6,8 seconds, it shows higher performance than a conventional fuel engine.
Its refined exterior design is always uncommon and unmistakable, as well as its comfortable interiors, improved by a thicker seat padding.
3 – Audi A8 L 60 TFSI e quattro – 3 TOP-RATED LUXURY ECO-FRIENDLY CARS
Following the iconic pattern of the wonderful luxury sedan, Audi presented a new hybrid plug-in version, combining a comfortable experience with environment-friendly behaviour and confirming once again the brand excellence.
Audi A8 L 60 TFSI e quattro can lean on a combination of a V6 petrol engine and an electric one: the latter has a capacity of 14,1 kWh, letting the vehicle travel for up to 46 km exclusively by electric mode.
Its performances could let the car go from 0 to 100 km/h in nearly 4,9 seconds.
