Porsche has confirmed the next-generation of the Macan SUV will feature a fully-electric powertrain option to be sold alongside petrol variants.
Due to start rolling off the assembly line in Leipzig at the start of the next decade, the Macan EV will be the brand’s first all-electric SUV.
In terms of electric models, Porsche will begin its expansion into the EV market with the Taycan later this year which will be followed by the Taycan Cross Turismo.
Like the Taycan, the Macan will be built on Porsche’s PPE architecture (Premium Platform Electric) which was developed in collaboration with Audi.
Porsche is yet to announce any drivetrain details for the second-generation Macan, however, it will use the 800-volt technology from the Taycan.
Oliver Blume, Chairman of the Board of Management of Porsche AG said: “By 2022 we will be investing more than six billion euros in electric mobility, and by 2025 50 per cent of all new Porsche vehicles could have an electric drive system. Nevertheless, over the next ten years we will focus on a drive mix consisting of even further optimised 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.”
