If you have been waiting for a high performance and luxury SUV, then the 2024 Porsche Macan would be a good option. The SUV, after all, has been known as one of the best selling rides from Porsche, and it has been going on since 2016. The company seems to plan on electrifying its future lineups with all electric power. This compact luxury crossover is expected to get the same treatment. Does it mean that the new Macan would get EV treatment? It’s most likely, because Porsche has set their minds about it.
The Good Things about Macan
The upcoming 2024 Porsche Macan EV is said to be constructed on a new (electric) platform, sharing the same one with Audi A6 e-tron. Although Porsche doesn’t say a lot about their upcoming production, they do confirm that the new Macan will have more range ability than the electric sedan, Taycan, which is now having 227 hp.
If Macan is able to utilize the 800V electrical structure (which is used in Taycan), Macan can enjoy the quick charging times. The EV lineups will likely have similar trim levels as the gas unit, but the S model would be more powerful while the GTS model would offer the best performance quality. The plan is to sell the gas unit Macan along with the EV version, but we still need to wait for Porsche to confirm it.
The 2024 Updates
According to many sources, the future Macan EV would have similar design, shape, and dimension of the gas Macan, but with newer rear and also front designs. What kinds of changes to expect? Still unknown, but you need to know that the electric unit is relatively new to the lineup, so this Macan EV would be the first ever model to use the new electric platform (which is developed by Audi and Porsche together).
Trim Levels and Prices
The base trim level is predicted to come with a tag of $80,000. When compared to the Porsche dedicated and flagship EV, the Taycan, this starting price is relatively cheaper. The higher trim, the S, would be set at around $90,000. The highest one would be the GTS and the price would be around $100,000. Details are still limited, but we should know more about the vehicle’s details and specifications once they are available.
Powertrain and Performance
Porsche confidently claims that the Macan EV would have longer traveling distance than the Taycan. Porsche may offer 2 battery sizes (like in Taycan), but because American buyers like vehicles with longer ranges, it’s possible that the future batteries would be bigger. The Macan EV may use the 800V electric architecture that can support fast charging to 270 kW.
Q and A
Q: When will Macan be available to the public?
A: It’s expected to be sold as 2024 model, so it’s most likely available in 2023.
Q: Will the Macan EV have different style and design from the regular gas Macan?
A: The information is still unknown, but it’s possible. Hopefully, we will hear more about 2024 Porsche Macan soon enough.
