In a groundbreaking world premiere, Porsche is ushering in a new era of electric performance with the 2024 Porsche Macan. A decade after its initial launch, the Macan is undergoing a radical transformation, evolving into an all-electric powerhouse that promises to redefine the SUV landscape. As Jörg Kerner, Vice President Product Line Macan, articulates, "Our aim is to offer the sportiest model in its segment with the all-electric Macan. In many ways, we are taking a very successful SUV to a new level."
Performance that Resonates
The heart of the Porsche Macan's top-class E-Performance lies in its cutting-edge technology. Equipped with the latest generation of permanently excited PSM electric motors on both front and rear axles, the Porsche Macan 4 and Porsche Macan Turbo deliver astonishing power. The numbers speak volumes – up to 402 hp for the Macan 4 and a staggering 630 hp for the Macan Turbo, propelling the vehicles from 0 to 60 mph in 4.9 and 3.1 seconds, respectively.
The electric motors draw their energy from a 100 kWh lithium-ion battery, a central component of the Premium Platform Electric (PPE) with 800-volt architecture. This not only ensures high efficiency but also facilitates fast charging capabilities. With up to 270 kW DC charging capability, the Macan can charge from 10 to 80 percent in just 21 minutes under ideal conditions, setting new standards in convenience.
Driving Dynamics Redefined
Porsche's commitment to quintessential driving dynamics shines through in the Macan's design. With rear-axle steering and two-valve dampers available as options, the Macan combines exceptional maneuverability in urban settings with unparalleled stability at higher speeds. The electronically controlled Porsche Traction Management (ePTM) and Porsche Torque Vectoring Plus (PTV Plus) contribute to a driving experience that is synonymous with the Porsche legacy.
The Power of 800-Volt Architecture
One of the most groundbreaking features of the 2024 Porsche Macan is its utilization of cutting-edge 800-volt architecture. This innovative electrical system, integrated into the newly developed Premium Platform Electric (PPE), sets Macan apart in the electric SUV landscape. With the ability to handle up to 270 kW of DC charging capability, the Macan's lithium-ion battery can be charged from 10 to 80 percent in a mere 21 minutes under ideal conditions. This not only emphasizes the Macan's commitment to efficiency but also positions it as a frontrunner in fast-charging capabilities. The 800-volt architecture not only ensures optimal power output reproducibility through its permanently excited PSM electric motors but also paves the way for a new era in electric driving, where performance and convenience seamlessly converge.
