New 2024 Porsche Macan Electric Price, Release Date & Full Specs! The electric Macan was first announced by Porsche in February 2019 before it was revealed, almost a year later, that it will enter production by the end of 2022. That’s not the case now since software problems have compelled the folks in Zuffenhausen to push out the market introduction of the EV until 2024. The German business revealed fresh photographs of a prototype this week, which our friends at Kolesa have since used for a speculative rendering.
Since 2016, the Macan SUV has been Porsche’s best-selling model. For the 2024 model year, a new all-electric version of the small luxury crossover is anticipated. The 2024 Macan EV will ride on a new electric platform that will also support the future Audi A6 e-Tron even though it will carry the Macan badge.
The Macan EV’s powertrain is currently unknown, but Porsche claims it will have a substantially longer range than the Taycan, the company’s current electric car, which has an EPA-rated range of only 227 miles. Rapid charging times should be possible by utilizing the 800-volt electrical architecture of the Taycan.
The Macan EV trims are most likely going to be the same as the gas-powered model, with the GTS model and the more potent S variant offering the best performance. At least initially, the 2023 Macan EV will be offered for purchase alongside the standard Macan.
What has changed for 2024?
The Macan EV is projected for the 2024 model year. Although the general design of the gas-powered Macan will be maintained, the bodywork will feature new front and back designs. One of the first cars to ride on a new electric platform developed by Porsche and Audi, the electric engine will be new to the Macan lineup.
2024 Porsche Macan EV price
We predict that the Porsche Macan EV will start at roughly $80,000, making it a little less expensive than the Taycan, Porsche’s flagship EV. Most likely, the top-of-the-line GTS model will surpass $100,000. Near the time when the electric crossover goes on sale, we’ll learn more about the various Macan EV trims and their prices.
2024 Porsche Macan EV Battery Feature
Porsche slices its salami a little differently than most automakers, using various motor and battery arrangements for various models. Beginning with the new 2024 Macan Electric, all PPE Porsches will feature brand-new 100-kWh battery packs with 800-volt architecture. Why 100 kWh? This size battery pack, according to Porsche, offers the finest balance of performance and range. Any perceived range gaps will be filled up by the 800-volt quick-charging capabilities, a feature Porsche helped develop in the Taycan.
2024 Porsche Macan EV Charging Capability
Porsche claims that its initial peak charge speed ambitions for PPE-platform vehicles are “slightly” higher than the 270 kW rate the Taycan can currently achieve and that the Macan Electric can charge from 0 to 80 percent on a 350 kW charger in less than 25 minutes. We would be shocked if the PPE-platform Porsches were equipped with the 350-kW charging rates that 800-volt systems are supposedly capable of, given the fact that Porsche is investing in a network of public 300-kW chargers in Europe that are only available to Porsche customers.
2024 Porsche Macan EV Range
Official range estimates won’t be available until the Macan EV is unveiled. But Porsche asserts that the electric SUV will have a much greater range than the Taycan, which has a maximum range of 227 miles according to the EPA.
2024 Porsche Macan EV PPE Platform
Porsche is experimenting with synthetic, carbon-neutral fuels in an effort to maintain the profitability of its prized internal-combustion engines in the setting of tougher regulatory restraints. Porsche’s future, like that of every other automaker, will be centered on electric vehicles. By 2030, Porsche aims to sell more than 80% of electric vehicles.
A key component in reaching this goal will be the jointly developed PPE platform with Audi, which will underpin Porsche’s high-volume electric vehicles. The German automaker recently disclosed new information about the platform. The electric crossover will herald its debut during an event at the Porsche Experience Center in Franciacorta, Italy. The first Porsche to use PPE will be the upcoming Macan EV.
