In a surprising turn of events, images of the highly anticipated Porsche Macan EV have leaked just hours before its scheduled official debut. Porsche enthusiasts have been eagerly awaiting the electric SUV since 2019, and the latest leak provides a sneak peek into what the automaker has in store.
Porsche Macan EV Details
Initially slated for a launch last year, the Porsche Macan EV faced delays attributed to software issues. Despite the setback, Porsche has persisted in building anticipation for the electric SUV, which will join the Taycan as the second all-electric vehicle in the brand’s lineup.
The Macan EV is built on the new Premium Platform Electric (PPE), a platform co-developed with Audi. This platform will not only underpin the Macan EV but also the upcoming Audi Q6 e-tron. Porsche has consistently teased the electric SUV, sharing design sketches earlier in the week that hinted at a “quintessentially Porsche” look with modern elements.
