This may come as a real shocker–heh–for Porsche fans, however, the company has confirmed the next-generation Macan will be a totally electric SUV. Before you rush off to place a deposit know that production is guaranteed to kick off “early in the next decade so it ll be a few years until you can wheel a silent Macan. (EV fans not fond of waiting, here’s your sad trombone. Fans of the extremely excellent and decidedly not electrified present-day Macan, here’s one for you, too.) Porsche also stated that the model will be constructed on the Leipzig, Germany, assembly line that handles the model. For people who want an all-electric Porsche earlier, the Taycan will start later this year, closely followed by the Taycan Cross Turismo (a prototype of which is pictured below).
“Electromobility and Porsche go perfectly; not simply because they share a high-efficiency strategy, but especially because of their sporty personality,” Porsche CEO Oliver Blume said in a statement. “By 2022 we will be investing more than €6 billion [$6.8 billion] in electrical mobility, and by 2025 50 percent of all new Porsche vehicles could have an electrical drive system. Over the next 10 years we will concentrate on a drive mix consisting of further optimized engines hybrid versions, and only operated sports cars. ”
