Porsche Offers More Details on the 2024 Macan EV
We’ve known that the Porsche Macan would be going electric for some time now, and the automaker has finally nailed down some details ahead of its official announcement.
The 2024 Macan EV will be the first vehicle to get Porsche’s new Premium Platform Electric, which it says will improve range and charging speeds. It also supports 800-volt electrical architecture, and Porsche says it’s aiming for ultra-fast charging times of under 25 minutes to recover from five to 80 percent battery. The Macan EV will also take advantage of a new Porsche feature called Bank Charging. The technology allows the vehicle to take advantage of slower 400-volt charging systems by splitting its 800-volt unit in two to charge both simultaneously.
Porsche says it’s aiming at up to 603 horsepower and 737 pound-feet of torque from a trio of liquid-cooled electric motors. Those numbers dwarf the current Macan’s max output, and the platform supports both rear- and all-wheel drive powertrains. All models will get a 100-kWh battery pack, which should deliver solid range estimates.
Though it’s handing out juicy details now, we won’t see the Macan EV until the end of 2023 at the earliest. Porsche says it plans to officially announce the vehicle then but hasn’t given more than a range of possible dates. Deliveries should start in 2024.
