The artists presented their vision of what the Porsche Macan crossover could become in an all-electric version. The debut of the new 2022 model year will take place next year.

The electrification of the Porsche range began last year with the presentation of the all-electric Taycan sedan. However, this won’t be the automaker’s only electric vehicle. Later this year, we expect Porsche to introduce the Taycan Cross Turismo station wagon. It will be followed by an electric version of the Macan crossover – the debut is slated for 2021. We haven’t seen Porsche even test this version of the model yet, but these new images show what an electric crossover might look like when it arrives.

The above image shows the smooth front end of the crossover, which was clearly borrowed from the Taycan electric sedan without the Macan-branded false radiator grille.

The bottom panel opening and air intakes are pushed out towards the outside of the front bumper, which is also similar to the Taycan’s design. At the bottom of the doors is a deep scallop with a charging port on the front fender. Everything on the Macan’s front is slightly taller than the Taycan.

While we expect the Macan and Taycan to be similar in appearance, they will not have a common platform. The Taycan is built on the J1 platform, and the Macan will use the new Premium Performance Electric architecture, which is a development of the J1 and will be used by other automakers of the German VW Group. Details of the propulsion system, range per charge, and specifications remain unknown; however, crossover size, weight and aerodynamics are to be expected to play a vital role in these metrics.

While Porsche is preparing an all-electric Macan for its launch next year, the automaker is also preparing an updated version of the Macan with an internal combustion engine. These two models will actually coexist in the market together. Rumors suggest that Porsche will only sell an electric version of the model in the future – this should happen by 2024.

Not so long ago, AutoTimesNews wrote that a photo of the interior of the restyled Porsche Macan appeared on the network. The Carscoops portal on Thursday, September 17, shared pictures of the updated Porsche Macan cross.
