The Porsche Macan crossover is the company’s very popular nameplate at the moment. However, the carmaker is still exploiting the first-generation model, and this will change quite soon as the automaker started dealing with the follower. The second-generation Macan will be presented as 2021 MY car and will be all-electric. Yes, the SUV will use electrical power, and there will be no alternative. To be more exact, the automaker will continue to sell the present model together with the EV. Though, the routine Macan with internal consumption engine won’t receive any redesign changes at all.
2021 Porsche Macan EV Platform
The German car producer currently deals with its first electric vehicle that’s going to be understood as a Taycan. The upcoming nameplate will be developed around the J1 platform along with the Audi e-Tron GT. Guess what? This one is not going to underpin the new Macan EV. Instead, the popular compact crossover is going to be based upon Premium Platform Electric (PPE). This one will support some future Porsche and Audi nameplates as well. According to the current reports, the chassis will be highly modular so that it will make no difference in between high-riding cars and regular models, or between various wheelbases and widths.
Fast Charging Stations
Considering that it’s going to be underpinned by the PPE, the 2021 Macan EV will also work on an 800-volt electrical system. That way, the electric crossover will lower charging time to a minimum. For instance, the automaker works on a job called FastCharge, which is essentially a 450-kilowatt charging station. The model of the station underwent a successful test that was including a Porsche mule with a 90-kilowatt-hour lithium-ion battery and capability of 400 kW. After just 3 minutes of charging the car could take a trip 62 another miles. The 800-volt system will be much more amazing given that it’s going to bring back 80 percent of the battery for 15 minutes. Rather impressive!
2021 Porsche Macan EV Powertrain
There’s no information regarding the future powertrain of the 2021 Porsche Macan EV. Nevertheless, despite the reality that the crossover is not going to ride on the same platform as the Taycan, we think that it may get quite much the same drivetrain. Meaning, we expect the topping alternative to be coupled with two electric motors and a battery that supplies approximately 300 miles of the ride. The topping next-gen Macan will most likely deliver a whopping output of around 600 horsepower, which sounds quite remarkable, do not you believe?
