Porsche's smaller SUV will not be powered by an internal combustion engine in the most powerful version will have more than 600 horsepower and 1,000 Nm of torque. Apparently, Porsche was forced to correct earlier plans according to which the electric Macan SUV should be available to customers from next year, and the reason is known problems with the delivery of microchips, which, unfortunately, spoil the plans of most car companies.
Anyway, Porsche's smaller SUV that will be driven only by electric motor(s) should be available to customers from 2024, and while intensive testing continues in Zuffenhausen, they have revealed some technical details of their second electric model on a new platform that is the result of a joint venture Porsche and Audi.
The most powerful electric Macan will be powered by two electric motors that will combine to produce more than 600 horsepower and 1,000 Nm of torque. Batteries with a capacity of 100 kWh are responsible for power supply, and electric motors will drive both axles.
In addition to the aforementioned platform, the Macan will also be offered in combination with one electric motor that is located at the back and will be responsible for driving only the rear wheels. The mass of the car was not disclosed, but it was revealed that in combination with two electric motors, 48 ??percent of the total power will go to the front axle, and 52 percent to the rear axle.
The range that Macan's batteries (lithium-ion) will provide has not been revealed either, but it has been said that 25 minutes will be enough to charge them from five to 80 percent on adequately powerful chargers. The electric Macan will also have a smaller turning circle and will be able to steer through both axles at speeds of up to 80 km/h and Porsche will offer it in parallel with the current versions of the Macan powered by internal combustion engines that are currently available.
