The Porsche Macan is late, but also 37,000 euros cheaper

The fact that the electric Porsche Macan is more than a year late will certainly not hinder its success. Not at all in the Netherlands, where it benefits from a 37,000 euro (!) lower starting price.

Prices of the new Porsche Macan start at 88,900 euros for the Macan 4 and 121,000 euros for the Turbo.

The Turbo is on a completely different level, which, with its 639 hp and 1,139 Nm, reaches 100 km/h in just 3.3 seconds. Its top speed is 40 km/h higher than that of the Macan 4.

No car has ever climbed higher than this Porsche!

The Porsche Macan has an 800 Volt on-board network, which, like the Audi E-Tron GT and Porsche Taycan, allows it to reach a maximum DC charging speed of 270 kW.

What does that mean in practice? With the Macan you need about 21 minutes on the fast charger to get the battery back to 80 percent.

Split battery

Interestingly, at a 400 Volt charging station, the Porsche Macan splits its 800 Volt battery into two batteries, each with a nominal voltage of 400 Volts. This makes charging with a maximum of 135 kW possible, without having to use an extra voltage booster.
