It is hard for any vehicle to tick all of the boxes but this one comes close. It rides well, handles great for an SUV and has been very efficient when compared with similar vehicles. I have yet to see less than 20 mpg and most recently exceeded 30 mpg for a tank of fuel.
I plug it in every evening so my first 14-17 miles each day are usually all electric. Range is reduced in cold weather but the environmental control system copes extremely well. I live in a hilly area in eastern New York and have experience operating in temperatures around 0* Fahrenheit. The Cayenne performs much better than one might expect. There have been no issues with the vehicle whatsoever. My only complaint would be the lack of a spare tire. I am not a fan of the supplied tire sealant but the supplied air compressor has been useful.
Other observations include:
The LED headlights are fantastic,
The heated seats and steering wheel are appreciated,
The ventilated seats are nice but may be unnecessary,
The switches on the console may confuse some people,
To get the most from the vehicle one should be familiar with the charging system and be prepared to use the E-Charge button to recharge on the go.
