The Macan has been a top seller for Porsche since its 2013 introduction, so it was safe to assume they’d bring it with them into the electrified era, and now they have with the 2024 Porsche Macan Electric.
After our First Drive through southern France we can loudly proclaim that, yes, while it is all electric, it’s still all Macan; and that means all Porsche.

Destined to be sold alongside internal-combustion Macans for now, the Electric will launch with two trims: the Macan 4 and Macan Turbo. Both are built on Porsche’s Premium Platform Electric and use a dual-motor design.

The 4 provides up to 402 horsepower and 479 lb-ft of torque. But if its 0-60 time of 4.9 seconds isn’t enough, how about 2.9? That’s the Macan Turbo, up to 630 horsepower and 833 lb-ft in Launch Control. The Turbo’s punchier rear motor feels incredible, but the Macan 4 is no slouch either.

“Now I spent a lot of my morning with the Macan 4. It’s the base, all electric Macan, and it’s pretty much all the Macan that most people need. It has what I would refer to as the perfect amount of power for a daily driver. It can get you in and out of places quickly, but for the most part, that power is just on tap and you’re not really accessing it until you really need it.”

And not just the power, but the 48% front and 52% rear weight distribution gives this SUV an amazingly balanced and sporty feel. The weight is carefully spread around by the 95-usable kilowatt-hour battery pack; 800-volt architecture and 270 kilowatts of charging means 10-80 percent top-offs in about 21 minutes. No EPA figures yet, but we estimate around 300 miles of range.

The 2024 Porsche Macan Electric will start around $80,000, working up to nearly $107,000 for the Turbo when they arrive later this year.
