2023 Porsche Macan Electric – Porsche was all about sports cars less than 20 years ago. The Cayenne was the next step in Zuffenhausen’s portfolio expansion. This included the Panamera sedan/ Panamera Sport Turismo wagon, and the Macan crossover. Fast forward to 2021 and Zuffenhausen’s German high-end brand sells a fully-electric Taycan sedan, along with a few zero-emission Cross Turismo / Sport Turismo wagons.
The all-electric Macan will debut in 2022. It will likely be renamed to differentiate itself from the combustion-engined model. This model is expected to cease production by 2024. Our spies captured several prototypes of the crossover in their company, a white Taycan.
2023 Porsche Macan Electric Review
The stickers that were slapped on the front to imitate the headlights are irrelevant. The real ones are visible and follow the example of the Taycan as well as the Mission E concept. The prototypes also have an additional set of lights that are mounted lower in their bumpers. This suggests that they are the main clusters, while the upper lights are for daytime running lights. With the unusual mix of old and new parts and extra body cladding, the prototypes aren’t exactly beautiful. The retractable rear spoiler is shown in action. Porsche also has the now-fake exhaust tips that it places on electric prototypes to prove that Germans have a sense of humor. The quarter window is a sticker that hides the rear glass. It appears the Macan EV will have a steeper roofline, as indicated by the angle of the tailgate. This gives it a sportier appearance.
The derriere is covered in a lot more disguise than usual. We are fairly certain that the dotted taillights were not the final arrangement. The position of the third brake light has been changed from the gasoline-powered Macan. It’s now mounted in the roof spoiler, like most cars with a tailgate. These prototypes were riding on large 21-inch wheels wrapped in winter tires.
The Porsche Macan, based on the Premium Platform Electric architecture (PPE), will be a sportier, more expensive option to the Q6 E-Tron. This is part of a partnership between Porsche and Audi to create the new platform. PPE-based electric vehicles, unlike the MEB-based hardware, will have rear-wheel steering, torque vectoring, and support for 350-kW Charging thanks to the 800V setup, like the Taycan GT and E-Tron GT. PPE will not be limited to crossovers. The two brands will also use it for luxury and upper-midsize vehicles, such as wagons. Audi has already shown an A6 Etron Sportback as an option, and Porsche is likely to use the PPE for other products.
