New shock absorbers and 22-inch wheels will be included in the 2024 Porsche Macan EV.
The top-tier models will include an electronically controlled rear-axle differential lock as standard equipment.
With the launch of the Macan EV, Porsche will expand its electrification initiatives. It is essential to the company’s objective of having more than 80% of new car deliveries be entirely electric models by 2030 and will start to reach customers sometime next year. Before the new crossover makes its official appearance, the carmaker is revealing information about it to give consumers a preview of what to anticipate.
Porsche will make the Performance rear axle available with the Macan EV, “depending on the model,” when it goes on sale. The crossover will thereafter have the 48:52 weight distribution that the firm had revealed in November along with further powertrain information. This will increase the EV’s agility coupled with dual-motor all-wheel drive and rear-axle steering, both of which are firsts for the Macan.
The double-wishbone front suspension with separate strut level and the multi-link rear suspension on the electric crossover will both be fully redesigned. Porsche fastens the rear electric drive unit to the structure and uses an elastically placed subframe to connect the rear suspension to the body. Porsche Torque Vectoring Plus, an electronically controlled rear axle differential lock, will be standard on top-tier models.
The two-valve shock absorbers for the Porsche Active Suspension Management system are one of the new features coming to the Macan EV. They are available with steel or air suspensions, independently adjustable, and will provide better damper characteristics. The front and rear tyres will have different widths to enable the rear-biased weight distribution, and wheel sizes will go up to 22 inches.
The new information aids in giving the Macan EV a more complete picture. In its most powerful configuration, the crossover will have up to 603 horsepower (450 kilowatts) and more than 738 pound-feet (1,000 Newton meters) of torque. In addition, it will have the technology, features, and suspension needed to harness it.
The electric vehicle (EV), which is supported by the jointly created PPE platform, will be powered by a lithium-ion battery pack with a capacity of roughly 100-kilowatt hours. It will have an 800-volt design and a 25-minute recharge time from 5 to 80%. The Macan EV’s range is still unknown, and it will probably stay that way until it is officially unveiled, which may come this year. Issues with the software division of the Volkswagen Group prevented the electric crossover from being on sale in 2023 as planned.
