The electrical details of the 2024 Porsche Macan have been confirmed

Porsche is planning big things for its next electric car.

The German brand has revealed details of its upcoming Macan electric SUV, which will be launched in 2024.

It will be built on the new Premium Platform Electric (PPE) architecture of the giant Volkswagen Group, which will underpin a wide range of vehicles.

This platform debuted in the Audi A6 e-tron concept in 2021 and brings some massive advances in performance and range.

Two electric motors, one on each axle providing traction on all wheels, produce 450kW and more than 1000Nm. That’s almost twice as much as the Macan S which comes with a twin-turbocharged V6 petrol engine.

Porsche hasn’t confirmed 0-100km/h times, but it’s likely to be extremely quick.

By comparison, the 560 kW/1050 Nm electric Porsche Taycan Turbo S can reach 100 km/h from a standstill in 2.8 seconds.

The electric Macan will have a huge 100 kWh battery. Its range is not yet known, but the A6 e-tron concept has a range of more than 700 km with the same size battery and electrical configuration.

A range of over 700km is better than most petrol cars and beats all electric cars currently on sale in Australia.

It will be equipped with the latest 800V charging technology, which will be able to accept more than 270 kW of power using high-performance chargers.

According to the English publication Autocar, the Macan’s battery will have a special ability. You can increase the charging speeds of slower chargers by splitting your 800-volt hardware into two 400-volt units.

The Macan is also expected to offer a crisp driving experience thanks to the adaptive suspension and steering that require fewer turns, making it easier to tackle tight roads.

Porsche has also been spied testing its new Cayman and Boxster electric sports cars.

The brand has announced that its small performance cars will be moving away from petrol for good from 2025.

“By the middle of the decade, we want to offer our mid-engine 718 sports car exclusively in fully electric form,” Porsche boss Oliver Blume said earlier this year.

Porsche introduced electric sports cars in 2021 with its basic Mission R concept that had 800 kW of power and a top speed of more than 300 km/h.

An electric version of the large Porsche Cayenne SUV is expected soon after, then a zero-emissions version of the Panamera sedan in 2026.
