Porsche presented the technical specifications of the next Porsche Macan, which will be completely electric and is introduced as the sportiest SUV in its class.

The power output features a stunning 450 kW (603 bhp), and 1000 Nm (738 lb-ft) of torque, that is delivered to each wheel. The SUV will, similarly to the Porsche Taycan, have one electric motor per axle. However, these motors come with improved efficiency, as can deliver even higher power density. The Macan EV will also have the Porsche two-valve damper, meaning that the driver can adjust the driving comfort independently. This will be done with the Porsche Active Suspension Management (PASM) system. The system would also contribute to enhanced aerodynamics by lowering the suspension, when needed, as well as to energy consumption lowering. Additionally, the driving experience will be even more fun, as even wider tires than the Macan GTS are expected for even better driving dynamics.

The greatest feature includes the 100 kWh Li-Ion battery with an 800 V architecture and a charging speed capacity of over 270 kW. This will be the only option for all models. The fast DC charging will allow charging from 5% to 80% in only 25 minutes. However, exact details regarding the actual range of the vehicle, are still unknown, but a driving range of more than 500 km (310 mi) is expected. The battery’s architecture is developed on the new Premium Platform Electric (PPE) platform, jointly built with Audi. Interestingly to mention is the new method for battery charging, that will divide the 800 V battery into two parts of 400 V for even lower charging time.

It is expected that the first deliveries of the Macan EV will begin in 2024. Porsche will also release electric versions of the Boxster and Cayenne in 2025, followed by the electric Panamera in 2027.
