Porsche's latest announcement brings forth the evolution of its iconic Macan model into the electric realm, joining the current only electric model, the Taycan . Introducing the 2024 all-electric Macan 4 and Macan Turbo. These vehicles promise a seamless blend of progressive design, Porsche performance, and the practicality expected from an SUV.


Both the Macan 4 and Macan Turbo boast a sporty and dominant appearance, staying true to Porsche's design DNA. The sharpened proportions, flat sloping bonnet, and pronounced haunches contribute to a dynamic visual impression. The new Macan's elongated wheelbase, paired with short overhangs and sleek headlights, emphasises its sporty and modern appeal. The Porsche Active Aerodynamics (PAA) not only enhances aesthetics but also improves the SUVs' efficiency, with an impressive air resistance coefficient of 0.25.

In terms of technology, both models have undergone a complete make-over, featuring the latest generation display and operating concept, offering up to three screens. Notably, the Macan introduces a 12.6-inch curved instrument cluster and a 10.9-inch central display. A unique addition is the front passenger's optional 10.9-inch screen, allowing them to engage with infotainment and streaming content. The head-up display with augmented reality technology is an extremely exciting feature that Porsche has added, which enhances the driving experience by seamlessly integrating virtual elements like navigation arrows.

Performance, Suspension and Driving Dynamics

Both Macan models are equipped with air suspension and incorporate the Porsche Active Suspension Management (PASM) electronic damping control. Optionally available with the steel-spring suspension, the PASM now integrates dampers with two-valve technology. This enhancement broadens the spectrum between comfort and performance, accentuating the distinctions between various driving programs. For the first time in the Macan lineup, an optional rear-axle steering system has been introduced, offering a maximum steering angle of five degrees.

This innovative feature not only enables a compact turning circle of 11.1 metres in urban traffic and during manoeuvres, but also ensures exceptional driving stability at higher speeds, complemented by the consistent and precise front-axle steering characteristic of the Porsche brand.

The Macan 4 and Macan Turbo not only excel in electric performance but also showcase cutting-edge advancements in battery technology, charging capabilities, and driving dynamics, reinforcing Porsche's commitment to innovation and the electrified future of its iconic SUV lineup.

Battery and Charging

The electric motors of both the Macan 4 and Macan Turbo derive their energy from a lithium-ion battery situated in the underbody. This battery, with a gross capacity of 100 kWh, employs the newly developed Premium Platform Electric (PPE) featuring an 800-volt architecture – a first for Porsche in the Macan lineup. With a DC charging output of up to 270 kW, the battery can be efficiently charged from 10 to 80 per cent in approximately 21 minutes at suitable fast-charging stations.

Notably, at 400-volt charging stations, a high-voltage switch in the battery facilitates bank charging, effectively splitting the 800-volt battery into two 400-volt batteries. This enables remarkably efficient charging, reaching up to 135 kW. Additionally, AC charging at up to 11 kW is supported at household wall boxes.
