What to Know About the 2024 Electric Macan
The Porsche Macan is going electric in 2024, but don’t worry, it’s still going to have the same awesome handling and off-road abilities, plus no emissions. Even though it’s electric, it’s still super powerful, and the battery has a range of nearly 250 miles, so you won’t have to charge it all the time. The inside is going to have a fancy digital dashboard, and the new tech means the battery can charge super quickly, which is perfect if you’re always on the go.
Porsche’s top-selling model just got a jolt, with the full-electric Porsche Macan slated for 2024. It’s not a complete shift to electric, as the wildly popular sport SUV lineup will still include new gas and electric productions; but the 2024 electric Macan will bring the same great handling and off-road capacities into a zero-emission powerhouse. Even more exciting, it marks an impressive flex by Porsche and Audi in the advancement of EV range and charging technologies.
An Electric Porsche Macan
With seemingly every new high-performance EV, fears of reduced power are increasingly assuaged — and that’s certainly true of the electric Macan. The highest-end versions are capable of 603 hp and 737 lb-ft of torque, and diligent car detectives snapped a revealing shot indicating a nearly 250-mile range on an almost full battery charge. That’s a comfortable lead on the Taycan, which measures in at the low 200 ends.
Aside from the powertrain, the new electric Macan features a new digital dash, where utility and user-friendliness were the operative design philosophy. It’s similar to the Taycan’s dual-screen setup, in that it strictly delineates driver display and infotainment functions, though the dashboard lacks the secondary touchscreen.
The electric Macan will spearhead Porsche’s and Audi’s new Premium Platform Electric system, expected to boost efficiency and power via:
- 800-volt fast-charging technology
- A “charge banking” function that charges the battery as two separate 400-volt packs on slower fast-charging stations
- 5–80% charge times in under 25 minutes
With equal parts brains and brawn, it appears Macan’s transition to electric will leave a marked impact on the EV industry writ large.
