Porsche is accelerating toward a greener future with the arrival of its first electric crossover — a battery-powered Macan that may pack an enormous battery and output.
The greater than 600 hp electric Macan might be the “sportiest model in its segment,” Porsche says.
Software supplier-related issues have delayed the compact luxury crossover by a few 12 months. Production of the electric Macan will begin at a plant in Leipzig, Germany, in early fall 2023, analysts say, with U.S. deliveries expected in the primary quarter of 2024.
The Macan EV — the sports automobile maker’s second all-electric model, after the Taycan — is critical to Porsche’s goals to generate greater than 80 percent of new-vehicle sales globally from EVs by 2030.
The combustion engine variant is Porsche’s best-selling U.S. model, accounting for nearly a 3rd of sales in the primary nine months.
