Could the 2024 Porsche Macan EV Be the Hottest EV SUV, Ever? We know two very important things about . First, the company promised us we’d see an EV version of it in 2024. Second, it’s, so any significant updates or changes should sell very well. But when it comes to the EV Macan, what can we expect to see?
Could the 2024 Porsche Macan EV Be the Hottest EV SUV, Ever?
Is Porsche Macan electric?
Porsche has confirmed that there will be no EV. We don’t know much about that, but the company said it will have more range than the Taycan sedan and that it will use the 800-volt system in that car that produces nearly 500 horsepower. The Taycan sedan is fast and quiet, and has a special fast charging system. How much an EV Macan will likely cost depends on the trim you choose, but if the Taycan is any action, it probably starts at around $90,000.
and a Cayenne SUV to use the platform as well.
According to, the Macan EV was supposed to appear next year. But bugs and software issues delayed the launch. While the company makes the Taycan EV sedan now, the Macan has different needs because it’s an SUV and will require a different platform.
The obvious benchmark is the Porsche Taycan sedan
The Macan EV will likely take a four-wheel drive and five seats. The Taycan is an all-electric Porsche, and it comes in several variants that can give us some insight into how Porsche designed the Macan EV. Featuring a two-speed transmission, the Taycan 4S, which is an all-wheel drive, is unique in the electric vehicle world and would make sense for an SUV that might want to go off-road. It also comes as a rear-wheel drive sedan.
The standard performance battery produces 402 horsepower. The optional Performance Battery Plus has up to 469 horsepower. Despite this, Porsches are supposed to look like Porsche cars, so the company incorporated a 1960s (low-tech) 356 sound into the cabin. You can hear the note of the Taycan engine.
Porsche completely redesigned the Macan for 2022
For 2022, the Macan got a massive redesign that refreshed the SUV but kept its character and good looks. The 2022 Macan features the classic sloping nose of the iconic 911 that maintains the front view, but the rear and high beltline of the SUV. The back has an amazing diffuser that’s a telltale sign that you’re looking at 2022, not 2021.
The base 2022 Macan has a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine that now produces 261 horsepower and can compress that hot hatch to 60 in just 5.8 seconds. But those with heavier right-handed feet will love the GTS version that produces 375 horsepower and can take this SUV to 160 mph. The new Macan S also comes standard with Porsche’s active suspension system. However, this SUV isn’t cheap, with the S starting at around $67,000 and the GTS at $79,900.
