Next generation Porsche Macan to go fully electric

2019 Porsche Macan

This comes as no surprise as Porsche has already said goodbye to diesels. The company is gearing up to launch the Taycan at the end of 2019, followed by its derivative, the Taycan Cross Turismo.

Like the Taycan, the fully electric Macan will feature an 800-volt technology and is based on the Porsche PPE architecture (Premium Platform Electric) developed in collaboration with Audi, meaning the Macan EV is also expected to offer close to 600 hp. It is scheduled to roll off the assembly line at the start of the next decade.

A Porsche spokesperson confirmed via email that the second-generation Macan will be offered only as a BEV as it is based on the PPE architecture.

Electromobility and Porsche go together perfectly; not just because they share a high-efficiency approach, but especially because of their sporty character. By 2022 we will be investing more than 6 billion euros in electric mobility and by 2025, 50% of all new Porsche vehicles could have an electric drive system. Nevertheless, over the next 10 years, we will focus on a drive mix consisting of even further optimized petrol engines, plug-in hybrid models, and purely electrically operated sports cars. Our aim is to take a pioneering role in technology, and for this reason, we will continue to consistently align the company with the mobility of the future. – Oliver Blume, Chairman of the Board of Management, Porsche AG
