The new 2024 Porsche Macan will be the second generation of the company’s popular crossover SUV. It will feature an electric powertrain and be available in two versions. While the car is still in its prototype phase, a new report reveals some of its key specs. It will use a “double V” magnet arrangement and silicon-carbide semiconductor to provide power to all four wheels.
The new model will use the Porsche Active Suspension Management system. The two-valve shock absorbers will lower the ride height for more comfort, while the mechanical suspension will remain the same for optimum aerodynamics. In addition, the new Macan will ride on wider tires. This means it will have an increased steering angle, which will aid the car’s handling and allow it to be more nimble at high speeds.
The new electric Macan will use the Premium Platform Electric (PPE) architecture, which the Volkswagen Group is developing for their electric vehicles. The new architecture is expected to deliver a more efficient vehicle with better performance and range. The power output from the two electric motors will be 450kW with 1000Nm of torque. That’s almost double the power of the current Macan S. It will also offer ultra-fast charging.
The battery pack in the new SUV will be about 100 kWh, split across 12 modules. The pack is expected to reach 80 percent in about 25 minutes. The car will roll on staggered tires, which will be wider in the rear. The wheels will be up to 22 inches in diameter. The battery pack will have enough capacity to power the vehicle for 314 miles between charges.
The new electric Macan could get up to 700 hp. The new model will be the first on the PPE platform, which is the same platform that underpins future Audi and Bentley EVs. It will also join the MEB mass-market platform, which also powers VW’s ID.4 and Audi’s Q4 e-tron.
Porsche has announced that it’s working on its next generation Macan, which it will officially name the Macan Electric. The new model will be the first electric SUV to ride on a dedicated EV platform. Although Porsche hasn’t nailed down the exact details of the new Macan EV, it has confirmed that it’s range will exceed the Taycan’s.
