It’s been close to two years since the electric Porsche Macan was first spied testing, but the latest spy photos suggest its reveal is imminent.

    Up front, it appears tape is partially concealing the electric SUV’s lighting.

    The front bumper air intakes appear to be closed and there are slight tweaks to the grille compared with previously spied prototypes.

    Porsche appears to still be covering up some details of the Macan’s rear, with some tape strategically placed on the tail lights.

    Spied images from the Macan EV’s Nurburgring testing revealed an interior that borrows plenty from the Taycan911, and Cayenne.

    There’s a simple digital instrument cluster with a design that mimics five analogue dials, and a large touchscreen integrated into the dashboard.

    In a briefing given to overseas media late last year, Porsche confirmed the model will feature all-wheel drive and up to 450kW of power and 1000Nm of torque.

    The model will reportedly use a lithium-ion battery pack with around 100kWh of capacity.

    The Premium Platform Electric underpinning the Macan EV and the upcoming Audi Q6 e-tron supports both rear- and all-wheel drive configurations.

    At launch, however, the Macan EV will be offered with only all-wheel drive powertrains, capable of switching off the front motor when coasting to save battery power.

    Like the Porsche Taycan, the Macan EV will have an 800V architecture that allows for charging at up to 270kW, allowing for a 25-minute charge from five to 80 per cent.

    Although range figures haven’t been confirmed, it’s expected the electric Macan will improve on the 500km figure of the Taycan.

    Porsche has confirmed the petrol-powered Macan will continue to live alongside its electric stablemate, at least for a few years, acknowledging that some customers aren’t ready to make the switch to all-electric.
