- the porsche cayenne suv will offer a fully electric version within the next few years, according to a report from autoweek.
- it will use the same ppe electric platform as other future porsche and audi evs.
- we can expect the ev version of the cayenne to arrive in 2024 or 2025.
porsche's upcoming electric-vehicle offensive will include an ev spinoff of the cayenne suv, according to a report from autoweek. it will follow the upcoming electric version of the smaller macan suv, which will start production in 2022. the cayenne ev (illustrated above) would likely arrive a few years later, possibly in 2024.
both electric suvs will share the same ppe underpinnings that will be used for many future porsche and audi models (the current taycan and audi e-tron gt use a platform called j1). we think that the electric cayenne will be sold alongside the current gasoline-engine and plug-in e-hybrid models. the arrival of the ev model may correspond with a larger update to the cayenne and cayenne coupe that could introduce new exterior and interior styling.
if the cayenne ev shares powertrain specs with the taycan, it could offer up to 750 horsepower in its top-spec model. because of its larger size, it's likely to offer larger battery packs than the current taycan's 71.0-kwh and 83.7-kwh packs. an all-wheel-drive setup with front and rear electric motors will likely be standard.
look for more information to come about these future porsche electric vehicles within the next few months as we learn more about what's in store.
