Porsche has taken the wraps off the Macan EV. The all-electric version of the brand’s baby SUV is its second pure-electric model, after the Taycan. At launch, it will be available in two variants – Macan 4 and Macan Turbo.
The Macan EV is based on Porsche’s Premium Platform Electric (PPE) with an 800-volt architecture. The 100 kWh battery pack offers a maximum range of 380 miles in the Macan 4 and 367 miles in the Macan Turbo (WLTP cycle).
The Macan EV supports up to 270 kW DC fast charging. Porsche claims the battery can be charged from 10-80% in 21 minutes at a fast-charging station.
Both the Macan 4 and Macan Turbo have all-wheel drive with electric motors on each axle and air suspension. The base version has 402 hp and 479 lb-ft torque. It can sprint from 0-60 mph in 4.9 seconds and has a top speed of 136 mph. The Macan Turbo packs 630 hp and 833 lb-ft of torque and achieves 0-60 mph in just 3.1 seconds. It can reach a top speed of 161 mph.
The Porsche Macan has entered the second generation with the all-electric model. While the design has been updated, it still looks unmistakably like a Macan. It features horizontal quad-LEDs up front adopted from the Taycan and a sporty front bumper with active flaps. The car has a coupe-like roofline and an active rear spoiler. Sleek LEDs adorn the rear, along with an LED light bar.
The interior of the Macan EV looks minimalistic with simple lines. The car gets a free-standing 12.6-inch, curved-design instrument cluster and a 10.9-inch central display.
Prices for the Macan 4 start at $78,800, while the Macan Turbo is available at a base price of $105,300.
