Porsche introduce the new all-electric Macan 4 and Macan Turbo.

A decade since its debut, the Porsche Macan is stepping into its second generation with an all-new electric form.

The new Macan 4 and Macan Turbo redefine the SUV segment with their progressive design, outstanding Porsche performance, exceptional long-distance range and high everyday practicality.

On the occasion of the world premiere in Singapore, Oliver Blume, Chairman of the Executive Board of Porsche AG, said: “We are taking the Macan to a completely new level – with exceptional E-Performance, the new driver experience and a very impressive design.”

Porsche exclusively uses the latest generation of PSM electric motors on the front and rear axles to achieve excellent efficiency. The Macan 4 produces up to 300kW (408 PS) when used in conjunction with Launch Control, while the Macan Turbo soars up to 470kW (639 PS). The cars produce maximum torque of 650Nm and 1,130Nm, respectively.

The Macan 4 boasts acceleration from 0-100km/h in 5.2 seconds, while the Macan Turbo takes just 3.3 seconds. The two models achieve top speeds of 220km/h and 260km/h, respectively. The models are powered by a pioneering 800-volt Premium Platform Electric architecture. The electric motors draw their energy from a lithium-ion battery in the underbody, with a gross capacity of 100kWh, of which up to 95kWh can be actively used. With a DC charging output of up to 270kW, the battery can be charged from 10% to 80% in approximately 21 minutes at a suitable fast-charging station. At 400-volt charging stations, a high-voltage switch in the battery enables bank charging by effectively splitting the 800-volt battery into two.

Up to 240kW of energy can be recuperated via the electric motors while driving. The Integrated Power Box (IPB) also contributes to the efficiency of the new Macan models, while also saving weight and space. The combined WLTP (Worldwide Harmonized Light Vehicles Test Procedure) range is up to 613km in the Macan 4 and up to 591km in the Macan Turbo.

Michael Mauer, Vice President Style Porsche, said: “The new Macan is clearly recognisable by its brand identity as part of the Porsche product family. The classic Porsche proportions have been further developed and optimally adapted to the challenges of an electric vehicle. This has further heightened the sporty, modern and dynamic appearance of the Macan.” ✤
