Porsche, it is known, is preparing a all-electric version of the Macan. This, if the rumors are confirmed, should reach us in 2023. From the first announcements concerning it, there was talk that it coexists with the gasoline variant. Well, according to the latest information circulating, that would be the case, but not for a long time.The Porsche Macan that we know would bow out at the end of the year 2024. It must not be easy for the company to take this step, because the SUV is an excellent seller. Yet it will be so.
The news about the withdrawal of the known Macan was confirmed by Sebastian Staiger, head of product line at Porsche, in an interview with Autocar magazine. He mentioned that the model would likely be discontinued within three years.
When asked when the Macan will switch fully to electric propulsion, the leader replied: “Today, no final decision has been made, but we assume it will be in 2024.” He also explained that Legislation plays a major role in the life of a vehicle, adding that “emissions laws are another limiting factor. »In 2025, the new Euro 7 standards will come into force on the Old Continent. This is why Porsche is stepping up its electrification efforts by focusing on vehicles that will not emit polluting emissions.
The electric Macan will be the brand’s first model to benefit from the Premium architecture jointly developed with Audi. The latter division is currently working on the Q6 e-tron, also scheduled for next year. The firm is also preparing an A6 e-tron based on this architecture.
Things will change at Porsche over the next few years, that’s obvious. Yesterday, we reported to you the information circulating concerning the switch to electric for the 718. Definitely, we will no longer recognize the range in a few years.
