Porsche has officially unveiled its long-awaited electric Macan. The famous SUV comes in two versions with electric propulsion. What are its specifications and what did we learn?
Porsche Macan is one of the most popular SUVs in the world, and it has been on the market for ten years. Now, it’s time for a second generation, but this time, Porsche Macan comes with pure electric propulsion.
The German automaker officially revealed the new vehicle on Thursday and brought two versions of the new SUV to the fans of the brand. They are Macan 4 and Macan Turbo. In the future, however, the offer of electric Macans may expand a bit.
Based on PPE platform
The new vehicles are based on the PPE platform with 800V architecture, which Porsche develops in cooperation with Audi. The new generation differs from the previous one not only by new technologies.
The new Macan is also much larger with its dimensions of 4786 mm x 1938 mm x 1622 mm. The size does not detract from the air resistance coefficient, which is only 0.25, making Macan the most aerodynamic vehicle in its category.
What are the vehicle specifications?
Macan 4, which is currently the basic version, provides its owners with a maximum power of 300 kW and can accelerate from zero to one hundred in just 5.2 seconds. Its range should be around 613 kilometers and the speedometer needle will stop at a maximum of 220 km/h. For this variant, you will pay from $80,450.
As for the sportier version, Macan Turbo arrives on the scene. With 470kW of power and acceleration from zero to one hundred in 3.3 seconds, it leaves almost all SUVs behind. Its maximum speed is 260 km/h and you can drive about 591 kilometers on one charge. The price of the Turbo version starts at $106,950.
We must not forget the design and interior of the new vehicle. From the outside, Macan is really elegant, and it almost seems that it is a real coupe. At first glance, we recognize elements of both the old generation of Macan and, for example, the Taycan vehicle.
The interior is, as usual for Porsche, very minimalist. But we also find a lot of innovations in it. There is a 12.6-inch driver display and a 10.9-inch center screen. It also includes Android Auto and a head-up display with augmented reality.
