We can nearly see it since it’s so close.
The January 25, 2024, date of the Macan EV’s unveiling has been confirmed by Porsche. The company’s webpage prominently depicts the dimmed taillight of the impending EV with the date 01/25/2024 beneath. The firm is getting ready to start taking orders soon, as seen by the landing page to sign up for the Macan EV newsletter that appears when you click the “Electrify Now” link.
After years of teases and spy photos, the much anticipated electric SUV will finally be shown in just two weeks. Tons of detail has leaked out, and we know the main design will pull from past Porsche vehicles like the Taycan and Cayenne, with the overall form having a coupe-like profile. Who are we to question Porche’s confidence when the firm anticipates it will lead the sector when it debuts?
The car aims to be as slippery as possible with its coupe-like appearance and active aerodynamics. The business says the drag coefficient is decreased to 0.25 compared to the combustion Macan’s 0.35. When the EPA tests it, this should have a competitive range of about 300 miles, especially considering that this is a performance-oriented SUV.
On turbo versions, the car may produce up to 603 horsepower and 738 lb-ft of torque thanks to two permanently excited electric motors. A 100 kWh lithium-ion battery powered by the brand’s new 800-volt PPE design will provide power. Partitioning the battery makes it feasible, according to the business, to charge it from 10% to 80% using a 400-volt charging station in less than 22 minutes.
Regarding the inside, the business has already drawn the curtains on that one as well. The dashboard is dominated by three displays, and the driver will see an augmented reality head-up display.
Thankfully, Porsche has acknowledged that drivers prefer the tactile feel of buttons, and as a result, many of them are kept accessible rather than hidden away in menus as some other companies tend to do with their Driver Experience layouts.
It feels like we practically know everything there is to know about the model at this stage; once we have a full view, it will be fantastic to fit the jigsaw pieces together. We anticipate that the firm will open order books in the spring or early summer following its launch this month. Most likely, deliveries will start in this year’s fourth quarter.
