The Porsche Taycan is one of the most desirable EVs on the market, quick and lovely and yet somehow practical, too. But, with less than 250 miles of range on a charge and a starting price of at least $90,000, it’s not exactly a mainstream car.
Porsche’s next EV might get a little closer. Meet the electric Macan, which for a time at least will live along-side the gasoline-powered Macan. Porsche doesn’t have all the details to share yet, but this battery-powered SUV will offer upwards of 600 horsepower in a similar, crossover SUV shell. Range? That hasn’t been determined, but I was told it will go “a lot” farther on a charge than the Taycan.
What it will cost, though, remains to be seen. The Macan is one of Porsche’s most attainable cars, starting at just over $60,000, but the all-electric version is liable to be rather more dear than that. What’s it like to drive? Even though it isn’t finished, it’s already a hoot. Come onboard for a spin.
