The Porsche line is getting a green makeover. The luxury car company is planning to unveil a plug-in hybrid version of its Panamera four-door car at an auto show in China.

This is file from a Porsche showroom. The Panamera e-Hybrid will start at 99-thousand dollars and will be the first to plug into an external power source to charge the batteries.

It will still have a gasoline engine. The plug-in Panamera can drive up to 84 miles an hour in all-electric mode. It tops out at 167 if you use all of its available power.

 

Porsche expects to start deliveries of its Panamera e-Hybrid before the end of the year.
