Hybrid technology is becoming increasingly more prominent across the Porsche model range and knowledge regarding the safety surrounding these vehicles is paramount.
Recently, local Tettenhall Community Fire Station approached Porsche Centre Wolverhampton and asked to come to the Centre for a question and answer session with our technicians.
Our Porsche-trained Technicians are servicing and working on hybrid models daily, so their knowledge of safety around these vehicles is one of the most important aspects for all of the Service Team and indeed the Centre.
Our technicians briefed the fire crew on how to disconnect high voltage batteries, where it is safe to use any cutting equipment and basic safety awareness for hybrid models.
We are very much looking forward to further visits from Tettenhall Fire Station who, whilst taking advice from the technicians, are hoping to hold a practical demonstration for their crew at Porsche Centre Wolverhampton.
*Data determined in accordance with the measurement method required by law. Since 01 September 2018 all new cars are approved in accordance with the Worldwide Harmonized Light Vehicles Test Procedure (WLTP). You can find more information on WLTP at
. From 01 January 2019, all fuel consumption figures are shown as determined in accordance with WLTP. CO₂ figures will be shown as NEDC-equivalent values, as CO₂ based taxation will continue to be based on an NEDC value (derived from WLTP) until 06 April 2020. For Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicle (PHEV) range and Equivalent All Electric Range (EAER) figures are determined with the battery fully charged, using a combination of both battery power and fuel.
Values are provided for comparison only. To the extent that fuel and energy consumption or CO₂ values are given as ranges, these do not relate to a single, individual car and do not constitute part of the offer. Optional features and accessories can change relevant vehicle parameters such as weight, rolling resistance and aerodynamics which may result in a change in fuel or energy consumption and CO₂ values. Vehicle loading, topography, weather and traffic conditions, as well as individual driving styles, can all affect the actual fuel consumption, energy consumption, electrical range, and CO₂ emissions of a car.
