The second-generation Macan, Porsche's cutting-edge battery-electric SUV, has made a groundbreaking world premiere in Singapore, showcasing its dual-motor power options of 300kW (Macan 4) or an impressive 470kW (Macan Turbo). Beyond its radical exterior and sporty interior, the all-new Macan marks a pivotal moment as the first international production model to debut globally in Singapore, streamed to a connected audience worldwide.
For Porsche, this launch is pivotal, considering the Macan's decade-long success as a best-seller, contributing significantly to the brand's success alongside the Cayenne. With over 800,000 Macans delivered to date, the transition to an all-electric Macan reflects Porsche's commitment to automotive electrification and environmental sustainability.
The 2024 Macan places emphasis on its electric powertrain, offering two variants at launch: the Macan 4 with 300kW and the Macan Turbo with an impressive 470kW. Both models feature a dual-motor setup, all-wheel drive, a single-speed gearbox, and a 100 kWh high-voltage battery, supporting ultra-rapid charging at up to 270 kW. Despite Singapore's current charging infrastructure limitations, the Macan's charging capabilities remain impressive.
In terms of driving range, the Macan 4 boasts up to 613 kilometers, while the Macan Turbo reaches up to 591 kilometers on the WLTP combined cycle. The car's aerodynamic design, with a low drag coefficient of 0.25, contributes to enhanced mileage, aided by features such as active cooling flaps, air curtains, and an adaptive rear spoiler.
The Macan's exterior and interior design enhancements, coupled with its innovative technology, position it as a contemporary electric vehicle for today's digital era. The streamlined cockpit integrates a 12.6-inch curved instrument cluster, a 10.9-inch central display, and optional features like a front passenger's infotainment display and head-up display with augmented-reality features.
For enthusiasts who value performance, the Macan's sporty driving position, excellent forward visibility, and Porsche's Sport Chrono package make it an enticing choice. Technological features like ePTM, PASM, adaptive air suspension, rear-axle steering, and PTV Plus contribute to its impressive sport-utility equation.
Despite its weight, the Macan delivers high performance, with the Macan 4 reaching 100 km/h in 5.2 seconds and the Macan Turbo achieving 0-100 km/h in 3.3 seconds. Practicality is not compromised, with 540 liters of boot space in the Macan 4, expandable to 1,348 liters by folding the backseat.
As for pricing, the all-new Macan starts from $254,888 for the Macan 4 and $388,088 for the Macan Turbo in Singapore, excluding COE but including applicable EV tax rebates. Deliveries are expected to commence by the end of December 2024, marking a new era for Porsche's electric lineup.
