Porsche Introduces All-New, All-Electric 2025 Macan

A decade after its introduction, Porsche has unveiled the all-new, second-generation Macan. And in a big evolution for the nameplate, it is switching over to an all-electric powertrain.

Launched globally in Singapore, the Macan—launched in Macan 4 and Macan Turbo guises—use Porsche’s latest-generation electric powertrain. The permanently-excited PSM electric motors, powering the front and rear axles, produce a combined 408 horsepower and 650 Nm in the Macan 4 and 639 horsepower and 1,130 Nm in the Macan Turbo. In terms of performance, the Macan 4 and Macan Turbo can dispatch the 100 km/h mark in just 5.2 seconds and 3.3 seconds, respectively, while top speed is set at 220 and 260 km/h, respectively.

The all-new Macan rides on the Premium Platform Electric (PPE). Its 800-volt architecture equates to ultra-fast charging times—up to 270 kW using a DC charger, topping up the 100 kWh (95 kWh usable) from 10 to 80 percent in just 21 minutes. At 400-volt charging stations, a high-voltage switch can effectively split the battery into two, upping the charging efficiency to 135 kW. AC charging at up to 11 kW is possible using household wall boxes. While driving, up to 240 kW of energy can be recuperated via the electric motors while driving helping achieve up to 613 kilometers of range on the Macan 4 (591 kilometers on the Macan Turbo).

Both the Macan 4 and the Macan Turbo have all-wheel drive. The two electric motors are controlled via the power electronics almost in real time. The electronically controlled Porsche Traction Management (ePTM) operates around five times faster than a conventional all-wheel drive system and can respond to slip within 10 milliseconds. Porsche Torque Vectoring Plus (PTV Plus), an electronically controlled differential lock on the rear axle, also contributes to the traction, driving stability, dynamics of the Macan Turbo.

Macan models with air suspension (also standard on the Turbo) are equipped with the Porsche Active Suspension Management (PASM) electronic damping control. This can be combined with steel-spring suspension. The PASM now also features dampers with two-valve technology. Rear-axle steering is an available option as well, reducing the turning radius to a tight 5.5 meters, while simultaneously enabling exceptional driving stability at higher speeds.

The all-new Macan takes on sharper proportions with styling DNA that’s clearly electric, yet classic. This was achieved thanks to the shallow pitch of the hood and the strongly-pronounced wings. Dimensionally, it’s 4,784 mm long, 1,938 mm wide, and 1,622 mm high. Its wheelbase is 86 mm longer than the previous model (2,893 mm), but is balanced off by shorter overhangs at the front and back. Thanks to active aerodynamics, it has a low co-efficient of drag—0.25. At each corner, up to 22-inch wheels can be fitted in a staggered size.

The headlights are now divided into two parts—a flat upper light unit with four-point DRLs that emphasize the width of the car, while the main headlight module is positioned slightly lower in the front end. The characteristic Porsche flyline forms a unit with the flat rear window. The doors are now frameless resulting in a sleeker and sportier design. Strongly pronounced shoulders give the rear a muscular look with the Porsche crest sitting at the center of the 3D light strip.

The electrification of the Macan has freed up two luggage compartments—one at the front and one at the back. With the rear seats up, it can fit 540 liters at the back. Fold those seats down, it can swallow up to 1,348 liters. At the front, there’s an additional 84 liters of storage.

Inside, the all-new Macan has a lower seat height—down 28 mm, while the rear passengers sit up to 15 mm with increased legroom. The interior is unmistakably Porsche with the width emphasized by an integrated black panel. Though most interfaces are digital—including a free-standing 12.6-inch curved instrument cluster, a 10.9-inch center display, and an optional 10.9-inch screen for the passenger—there are select analog control elements present such as the air conditioning controls. An LED light strip is integrated into the cockpit and doors and this acts as both ambient lighting and a communications light.

The all-new Porsche Macan will be built at the brand’s Leipzig plant where it will be produced in a net carbon neutral way. The new models will be delivered to the first customers during the second half of the year.


  1. Still using LG'S BATTERIES? I wonder when will Porsche offer solid state batteries...

    1. So far, solid state battery tech makes for quick charge times and have higher density. However, in tests, the lifespan of the battery is much shorter. This will likely limit the use of solid state batteries to high-performance cars which would do less mileage. Here's hoping they're able to improve on the tech though.

  2. Wonder how much would it here in Manila?
