Porsche India welcomes new Cayenne Third generation Cayenne set to continue success story

The latest generation of Porsche’s successful SUV model line is now available in India. Customers can choose from three variants right from the start: the Cayenne, Cayenne E-Hybrid and Cayenne Turbo. The arrival of the brand’s flagship SUV was celebrated at a special event held by Porsche India at the Sahara Star hotel in Mumbai, where all three derivatives were showcased, following an exclusive reveal act.

Powerful turbocharged engines, enhanced chassis systems, rear-axle steering, mixed-size tyres and a sharper design underpin the Cayenne’s credentials as a true sports car in its segment. These new developments bring the Cayenne even closer to its racetrack roots, thanks to greater versatility and more performance than ever before. Additional enhancements to the third generation also include intelligent assistance systems and further connectivity features to offering improved driver and passenger comfort.

Pavan Shetty, Director of Porsche India, said: “Since its initial launch, the Cayenne has been one of our most popular models in India, and I have no doubt that the third generation will continue this success story. For me, the new Cayenne’s day-to-day usability and exceptional spread between driving dynamics and driving comfort are truly unique. Our latest edition to the range is at home on any road, but it is equally ready to explore new terrain, from India’s desert in the west to our jungles in the northeast. We are also very excited to be welcoming the new Cayenne E-Hybrid, as we see a growing interest from our customers in electric mobility.”

The new Cayenne comes with a choice of V6 and V8 petrol engines offering 340 hp and 550 hp, combined with the standard eight-speed Tiptronic S transmission. Currently the top performer in the series, the Cayenne Turbo accelerates from zero to 100 km/h in 3.9 seconds (with Sport Chrono Package) and has a top speed of 286 km/h. The E-Hybrid variant produces 462 hp and features a boost strategy, adopted from the 918 Spyder supercar. With a fully charged battery, it can drive up to 44 kilometres with a top speed of 135 km/h in all-electric mode.

Peter Vogel, Acting Chief Executive Officer and Sales Director of Porsche Middle East and Africa FZE, added: “No other model in the series surprises more than the Cayenne E-Hybrid. With its new standard Sport Chrono Package, optional sports exhaust system and four driving modes to choose from, this variant does not only stand for best-in-class performance but also real fun. With the Cayenne E-Hybrid Porsche has redefined e-mobility with efficiency, connectivity and adrenaline.”

Visually, a bold new design stays true to the unmistakable identity of the Cayenne but delivers a more streamlined, sporty impression. Inside, a spacious cabin houses several comfort and convenience features, including a luggage compartment that has increased by 100 litres. The Porsche Advanced Cockpit concept offers increased connectivity and intuitive controls, whilst the centre console with Direct Touch Control, a new 31.24 cm (12.3”) touch display for the PCM act as the driver’s interface to all vehicle functions. A new head-up display increases comfort and safety.

The new lightweight chassis of the Cayenne has been completely redesigned to deliver the optimum balance between sporty performance and comfort, and contributes to an overall weight saving of up to 65 kilograms, despite an extended range of standard equipment. New technologies, such as 4D Chassis Control, three-chamber air suspension, electric 48-volt roll stabilisation and high-performance Porsche Surface Coated Brakes contribute to overall excellent driving dynamics.

A true all-rounder, five pre-programmed drive and chassis modes can be activated in accordance to the terrain via the Porsche Communication Management (PCM). In addition to the default On road programme, drivers can choose between Mud, Gravel, Sand and Rocks settings to adapt to the relevant conditions. For the first time, the Cayenne is available with rear-axle steering and mixed-size tyres derived from the 911, which improve agility, stability and safety.

Porsche’s latest SUV features several assistance system as standard, including LED headlights, Warn and Brake Assist with predictive pedestrian protection, cruise control as well as front and rear Park Assist.

The Cayenne Turbo sets itself apart as the leader of the new generation. It is the first SUV in the world to have an adaptive roof spoiler as part of its active aerodynamics. Similar to the 911 Turbo, the spoiler adapts the aerodynamics and downforce to suit the driving conditions. Visually, the Turbo is easily identifiable by its distinctive twin tailpipes, enlarged air intakes, double-row front-light modules and 53.34 cm (21”) Turbo wheels in dark titanium emblazoned with the coloured Porsche crest. The rear apron, exterior mirrors and door side trims are finished in the vehicle colour.

‘The Canvas Code’, the IndianOil art exhibition announces its 22nd edition

~ A philanthropic initiative to promote young talent in the art fraternity, this biennial exhibition will showcase the work of 12 masters, 35 eminent sculptors and painters, and 38 upcoming artists~~Scheduled from October 24–29, 2018, ‘The Canvas Code’ will be held at the Jehangir Art Gallery~

Indian Oil’s biennial art exhibition has come of age, with its 22nd edition this year titled ‘The Canvas Code’. What began as an eclectic art display in 1987 at Indian Oil’s head office in Bandra, has today, become a significant event on Mumbai’s art calendar. This philanthropic initiative of IndianOil is organized with a view to support and promote young budding talent in the art fraternity and provides them a prestigious platform to exhibit their work alongside established artists. A wide array of paintings by over 90 artists from across the country will be showcased at the Jehangir Art Gallery from October 24 to 29, 2018.  It will also present a diverse range of artworks by artists of different age groups, styles and categories. IndianOil has also collaborated with NGO Nanhi Kali to ensure that 10 per cent of sale proceedings will be contributed to charity.

The event will be formally inaugurated by internationally acclaimed artist Bose Krishnamachari at Jehangir Art Gallery on October 24,2018, where he will unveil the work of 12 masters, 35 eminent sculptor artists and painters and 38 upcoming artists. This year will include a lot of firsts for IndianOil that includes a special preview on the evening of October 23, 2018. The preview evening is an exclusive opportunity for collectors and art buyers to reserve art works before the exhibition is thrown open for public viewing. The exhibition has, for the first time, given an opportunity to specially challenged artists like Sudarshan Manse and Gaurav Dhamija. The exhibition will also feature the most promising in-house artists (IOC employees), who, despite their tough professional schedules, have passionately developed an enviable body of work.

All the 35 young talents have created new works for the exhibition. The art show is being organized with assistance from senior artists Pratibha Wagh and Bapusaheb Zanze. This year’s mega show includes an eclectic mix of works telling a unique story of life’s experience. The works on display include abstract, semi-abstract paintings and sculptures in diverse media such as oil on canvas, acrylic on canvas, pen & ink, mixed media, ceramics, terracotta, sandstone, etc.

Acclaimed artists such as Suhas Bahulkar, Achyut Pallav from Mumbai; Shobha Broota from New Delhi; VG Andani from Karnataka, David Prem from Vadodara, Mohammad Iqbal from Shrinagar, Pankaj Ghelot from Rajasthan, Niti Yogi from Madhya Pradesh amongst many others will be participating in the show, fortifying the unique position that the show has been claiming ever since its inception.

The name ‘The Canvas Code’ stems from the fact that a canvas denotes a platform or stage that would be given to artists, irrespective of their stature or standing. Since the artists will range from masters to rising stars to beginners, the word ‘code’ has been used to denote the sense of community that they share. The code unites them for one cause – spreading the light and igniting the passion of art in the very fabric of our society where young minds are the creative catalysts of a vibrant future.

Speaking about the event, IndianOil’s Executive Director, Corporate Communications & Branding, Subodh Dakwale says, “The IndianOil art exhibition, devoted to promoting artists in the early stages of their careers, has been a continuous feature of IndianOil’s community connect program since it opened three decades ago. We are delighted that it continues to be such an important exhibition for artists, giving them a platform to share their voices, art, and to introduce new ideas to the ever-increasing audience in the world of art.”

Ms. Pratibha Wagh and Mr. Babusaheb Zanze, who have assisted IndianOil in putting up the show, add, “It is an honour to reveal the depth of curiosity and creative intelligence of the younger generation of artists by presenting their works at the 22nd IndianOil art exhibition. The presence of works by internationally acclaimed artists such as Achyut Palav, Suhas Bahulkar, Vilas Shinde, Usha Phenani Pathak, Kumud Jasani in this exhibition is a great motivator for budding talent.”

IndianOil is celebrating 2018 as the ‘Year of Trust’ with ‘trust’ being the currency of creativity. Pioneering the spirit of creativity is important to IndianOil’s heritage. As an Indian energy major, this art show truly symbolizes the mindful support IndianOil extends to the Indian art-loving community.
Aware of the need to be perceived not just as corporate behemoths that exist for profits, but as wholesome entities created for improving the quality of life of the communities they serve, Indian Oil supports a variety of endeavours in arts, culture, music and dance, apart from organising programmes on its own under the banners of IndianOil Art Exhibition, IndianOil Sangeet Sabha and IndianOil Kavi Sammelan.
