The new Porsche Macan has gone all-electric. Which is big news. Some are going to love the idea, some are going to hate it – you can probably guess which side of the fence Electrifying sits.

The basics are that there will be two models; the £69,800 Macan 4 and a £95,000 grand Macan Turbo. And yes, it is weird calling a car with no engine a turbo. Both are dual-motor and four-wheel drive, both get the same usable 95kWh battery.

The Turbo is the really quick one with 635bhp and 0-62mph in 3.3 seconds, a 162-mph top speed and 367 miles of range. The 4 gets a ‘measly’ 400bhp, hits 62 in 5.1 seconds, but a touch more range at 380 miles. So overall that’s a bit more sensible.

In terms of design, the Turbo doesn’t look a lot different to the 4. There are different wheels and a few trim pieces, and there are a couple of vents on the back bumper, but it’s not night and day.

Inside, there’s a 12.6-inch curved driver’s info screen plus a massive head-up display projected onto the view, then a 10.9-inch touchscreen. There’s also an optional passenger screen, so that your passenger can play at being a DJ, watch tv or change the sat-nav. It’s directional so you won’t be tempted to take a peek while driving. But that’s still a lot of screen.

Passengers sit a little lower than in the Macan with an engine, which makes a change for an EV as you usually sit higher because there’s a battery stuffed under your feet. The rear bench is lower, too. Plus, there’s more legroom back there, and a bigger boot, plus a frunk. It’s not the biggest ever, but it’s enough to get by for most people.

The big news is that the New Macan is now a bespoke electric car, with a whole new skeleton of tech which will also sit under things like Audi’s Q6 e-Tron and the new A6 e-Tron, and it’s full of good news, especially around charging. The 800-volt architecture will allow for a maximum charge rate of 270kW, giving 10-80% charge in just over 20 minutes on a big enough charger. Porsche reckons 60 miles of range every four minutes.

The Macan can also bank charge – essentially splitting the battery into two parts for 400-volt charging stations – which means more efficient charging and better heat management. And don’t forget, that time spent at the charger is actually putting in decent range because it’s efficient – the official figures are 380 miles for the Macan 4 and 367 for the Turbo. That’s 4.2miles per kWh for the Macan 4 – and anything over 4 is pretty good for this class of car.
