Porsche‘s upcoming all-electric Macan SUV has been spied inside and out ahead of its expected reveal in the second half of 2023.

    The dash is clearly inspired by the all-electric Taycan and features a curved digital instrument cluster.

    There’s a knobby, electric shaver-style gear selector, like that of the Taycan and the upcoming Panamera which has recently been spied.

    On the centre console there are climate control toggles and touch-capacitive switchgear. This looks like an evolution of the current petrol-powered Macan.

    We can make out the touchscreen infotainment system, but a lot of the interior is still covered with camouflage and there are emergency buttons, wires, cameras and computers all around.

    Two different front bumper designs were spied in the convoy of Porsche Macan EVs, pointing to slightly different front-end styling for the regular Macan EV and the more powerful Turbo model.

    At the front both prototypes have a bi-level headlight design, with an upper block comprising four strips of LED daytime running lights, and a lower set containing the main low- and high-beam lights.

    There’s also a large lower air intake at the bottom of the front bumper.

    The main differences between the regular and Turbo model are the side air intakes. The regular model has trapezoidal side air intakes and the sportier model has more triangular units.

    Around the side, there are prominent shoulders and a sharply raked tailgate, the latter reminiscent of the Cayenne Coupe. The third side window and rear pillar remain camouflaged.

    Down back there’s a full-width light bar, an active rear spoiler and faux exhaust outlets.

    It’s still unclear what the power and torque figures will be for this upcoming all-electric Macan, nor what the range figure will be like. The digital instrument cluster reads out a range of 281km on one of the spied prototypes although this most likely isn’t with a full battery.

    Under the skin, the all-electric Macan is based on the new Premium Platform Electric (PPE) architecture jointly developed by Porsche and Audi. It will also be used in the Audi Q6 e-tron, which was recently spied in prototype form.

    As previously reported, the current petrol-powered Macan will remain on sale alongside this new all-electric Macan for a few years, at least until 2024.

    The updated 2022 Porsche Macan arrived locally in mid-2022, and is available with either a 2.0-litre turbocharged four-cylinder in the base model, or a 2.9-litre twin-turbo V6 in the S and GTS models.
