Jerryis here to take you from the present to the future with Porsche and their EVs to ensure you've got all the known details.
Porsche’s current EVs and plug-in hybrids
Currently, Porsche has one purely electric vehicle on their lineup, the Taycan. This all-electric vehicle takes 22 minutes to go from 5% charged to 80% charged in ideal conditions and runs on an 800-volt electrical system with a max of 161 mph. The cheapest trim in this family of Taycan cars runs at $86,700 MSRP.
The plug-in hybrids offered by Porsche have an electric motor and battery like the EV has, but with a combustion engine that can go up to 192 mph. Two plug-in hybrids areavailable, the
Cayennee-hybrid and the Panamera e-hybrid. The starting MSRP for the
Panamera 4E-hybrid is $109,000, while for the Cayenne e-hybrid, it’s $86,500.
Compared to their internal combustion engine cars Porsche’s EVs and plug-in hybrids are quieter while still maintaining the sporty stylings and racecar handling Porsche excels at.
What we know about the Porsche, EV SUV, and their electric future
Early in July, Porsche announced plans for an upcoming EV SUV. It’s supposed to take the technology from the Mission R race car and be produced in Leipzig.
The Mission R is envisioned as an all-electric motorsports vehicle and is still a prototype with two electric motors, one in the front offering 429 horsepower and one in the rear offering 644 horsepower in tandem with the 80.0-kWh battery.
The unnamed Porsche EV SUV plan is to have a 900-volt system and the ability to charge from 5% to 80% in 15 minutes. It’s also expected to be a luxury car rather than Porsche’s usual luxury sports cars and to be above the
Macanand Cayenne in the Porsche lineup, meaning a much heftier price tag.
Porsche is planning for electricity to become its future with hopes that by 2030 80% of its sales globally will be in electric vehicles. Including, by 2035, making the 718 Cayman sports car only available in EV.
