The second generation of the Porsche SUV takes things to a completely new level with all-electric powertrains, timeless design and sportscar performance
The launch of the new Macan is an important moment for Porsche. The two models that are initially available (as of February 2024) – the Macan 4 and Macan Turbo – mark the first-ever all-electric Porsche SUVs in a range that eventually will be exclusively fully electric. There are, of course, plenty of other headlines being made by the Macan too, from its sportscar-like performance to coupé-like Porsche exterior design, high-quality interior to cutting-edge infotainment technology.

What is the new Porsche Macan?The first Porsche Macan was launched in 2013 and has since become the biggest-selling Porsche model. The challenge with the new Macan has been to build on that success, continue to be innovative and yet remain not just quintessentially a Macan, but a Porsche too. It’s why the proportions of the new car typify what a sportscar in the segment should look like. “The design has been sharpened both inside and out,” says Michael Mauer, Vice President Style Porsche. “The new model has an even sportier and more dynamic vibe. And driving pleasure is definitely reflected in the design.”Here’s why the new all-electric Macan is turning heads with its looks, technology and performance.
How much does the new Macan cost?Customers in certain markets can already order the new all-electric Macan (as of February 2024) with deliveries expected to begin in the second half of 2024.

Is the new Macan an EV?With the launch of the Taycan in 2019, Porsche introduced its first-ever all-electric sportscar. It is now being joined by the new Macan which, for all second-generation models, will only be available in all-electric form. The aim is to offer the sportiest models in the segment – something that the performance figures of the new Macan clearly confirm. It sees the Macan 4 accelerate from 0-100km/h in 5.2 seconds, while the Macan Turbo hits the 100km/h mark from standstill in just 3.3 seconds.The new Macan 4 produces up to 408 PS when combined with Launch Control. Meanwhile, the new Macan Turbo has up to 639 PS available to it in combination with Launch Control – a phenomenal figure that truly underlines its status as a high-performance sportscar.The new Macan is the first Porsche to feature a newly developed 800-volt architecture called Premium Platform Electric. It allows the battery of the Macan to be charged from 10 to 80 per cent in around 21 minutes when using a fast-charging system, with its highly efficient technology allowing it to charge up to 135 kW. AC charging at up to 11 kW is also possible when using a household wall charger. The electric motors can also recuperate up to 240 kW of energy while driving. The combined range for each car is up to 613km in the Macan 4 and 591km in the Macan Turbo.

What are the design highlights of the exterior of the new Macan?As the man who has led the Porsche design team since 2004 – which means he’s been involved in the development of every one of the current Porsche models – Michael Mauer is in a unique position to explain the opportunities and challenges of designing the new Macan. One of the biggest challenges, as well as opportunities, for the design of the new Macan was its transition from being powered by an internal combustion engine to all-electric. A Porsche, Michael says, always has to remain a Porsche. The Macan maintains its classic Porsche proportions but its appearance is even more sporty, modern and dynamic-looking. A sportscar that, as you walk up to it, gives you strong hints of the driving pleasure that awaits.In specific terms, the pitch of the bonnet is shallower and, as a result, even more sporty looking than before, with strongly defined wings and shoulders for a real muscular look. The wheelbase of the new Macan is 86mm longer than the previous model at 2893mm, with short overhangs both front and rear. It comes with 22-inch wheels as standard, while the headlights of the new Macan are divided in two parts – an upper unit with four-point daytime running lights embedded in the wings and a lower-positioned main headlight module (with optional LED matrix technology).The new Macan is also one of the most aerodynamic SUVs on the market – something which helps benefit the range and power consumption. Its Porsche Active Aerodynamics includes an adaptive rear spoiler and active cooling flaps on the front air intakes. Additionally, the design of the rear of the car features lateral tear-off edges and a louvred rear diffuser which both contribute to a drag co-efficient of 0.25. This is sporty design that significantly aids sporty performance.

What are the design highlights of the interior of the new Macan?The Macan has always been built on its everyday SUV practicality – and the new models help advance this to a new level of quality. Driving pleasure is certainly reflected in the interior, with increased legroom for rear passengers, who now sit up to 15mm lower than in the previous model. Large windows make the interior feel a comfortable, spacious and bright area to spend time in. The controls mix modern digital interfaces with a number of analogue controls, such as for the air vents and air conditioning.The performance focus of the new Macan is reflected in the fact that the driver and front passenger now sit up to 28mm lower, coupled with a low, rising centre console. The LED strip that runs along the interior door trim and across the cockpit has a dual purpose – both as an ambient light but also as a communication light. This works with the information system to provide warnings and information for the driver, like during the charging process.The new Macan features high levels of customisation, while the Turbo variant also incorporates the new Turbonite accent colour – reserved for Turbo models across the Porsche range – which was first seen in the new Panamera and again, recently, in the new Taycan. A metallic grey colour, this strong look was created by the Porsche Colour and Trim experts. Finally, the interior of the new Macan was designed from the outset to incorporate more ecological materials in the car.What is the new Macan like to drive?With its low centre of gravity and sporty Porsche seating position, the new Macan 4 and Macan Turbo – which are both all-wheel drive – are SUVs that deliver an authentic sports car feeling when driven. The addition of Porsche Torque Vectoring Plus on the Macan Turbo, which electronically controls differential lock on its rear axle, helps aid stability and driving dynamics. And Porsche Traction Management operates about five times faster than a conventional all-wheel drive system to give you the added confidence you need on twisty routes or in challenging conditions.

What is the infotainment system like in the new Macan?The very latest in Porsche in-car technology is on offer in the new Macan. As well as a 12.6-inch, curved-design instrument cluster and the 10.9-inch central display, there is also an optional 10.9-inch passenger display available for the first time in the Macan. It allows front passengers to view information like maps, adjust the infotainment system settings and even stream video content (which is designed in such a way not to distract the driver). For the driver, the Porsche Driver Experience features a head-up display with augmented reality technology. This sees virtual elements, like sat-nav arrows, integrated seamlessly into the real world, and appears to the driver at a distance of 10 metres.The new-generation infotainment system in the new Macan features the high-performance Porsche Communication Management. Using the ‘Hey Porsche’ voice assistant, it can quickly suggest routes, including to the nearest charging stops. And the new Porsche App Centre allows passengers to directly access third-party apps and install them in the new Macan.How big is the new Macan?While the new Macan boasts dynamic performance, it is also a practical SUV that’s perfect for everyday use. The electrification of the Macan means more luggage space, including a ‘frunk’ under the bonnet with a capacity of 84 litres. With everything taken into account, the new Macan has 136 litres more luggage space than the previous model. The maximum luggage compartment volume of the Macan 4 (with its seats retracted) is 1348 litres while the Macan Turbo checks in at 1288 litres. The length of both the new Macan 4 and Macan Turbo is 4784mm with a wheelbase of 2893mm and a width of 1938mm (mirrors folded) and 2152mm (including mirrors). The Macan 4 is very slightly taller at 1622mm compared to 1621mm for the Macan Turbo. The new Macan can also tow up to 2000kg.

How fast is the new Macan?Both the new Macan 4 and Macan Turbo benefit from the sharp acceleration that all-electric power offers. The Macan 4 produces 408 PS with Launch Control engaged, accelerates to 100km/h in 5.2 seconds and can reach a top speed of 220km/h. With up to 639 PS available to drivers, the Macan Turbo is even faster. It has 0-100km/h acceleration of just 3.3 seconds and can hit 250km/h. It’s a reflection of the aim of Porsche for the new Macan to be the sportiest model in its segment.
