Precision Cars (Cambodia) Ltd held a test drive weekend for the media and motoring enthusiasts in Phnom Penh from February 19 to 21.
The weekend’s events aimed to showcase the performance, practicality and efficiency of the brand’s top two SUVs available to the Cambodian market. The brand new Cayenne S E-Hybrid and the compact SUV Macan were available for test drives throughout the weekend.
Friday’s press day began with an introduction to the day’s activities by Alexander Schuchert, Regional Sales Manager of Porsche Asia Pacific Ltd. and Michael Vetter, CEO of Porsche Cambodia at the Himawari Hotel. The main event, following a detailed briefing on handling the two vehicles, saw three journalists representing various media outlets set off on the test drive.
Driving the Cayenne S E-Hybrid, each journalist followed the same eight kilometre route, starting and ending at the Himawari Hotel. The winner, using the least amount of fuel and producing the lowest C02 emission, was rewarded by Vetter and Schuchert with a gift from Porsche Cambodia.
On the Saturday and Sunday Phnom Penh’s Porsche enthusiasts were treated to a test drive experience with the Cayenne S E-Hybrid. After breakfast at the Himawari Bistro, the group of auto fans each drove the Macan and the Cayenne S E-Hybrid along a set route accompanied by a Porsche representative who demonstrated the latest innovations and key features of each car.
The S E-Hybrid is capable of off-roading and fording water up to 50cm depth. Other aspects of the new plug-in technology are Cayenne S E-Hybrid’s fuel efficient consumption, on demand torque and strong performance; benefiting both customers and the environment producing fewer pollutants.
