An EV Porsche Cayenne has been confirmed by the Stuttgart carmaker, as part of its efforts to fully electrify 80% of its lineup by 2030. The announcement was made during the company’s annual press conference. At the conference, Porsche also announced the development of an all-electric SUV positioned above the Cayenne.
Moving towards electrification, Porsche is set to make the all-electric Porsche Macan available by 2024. Images of the camouflaged Macan have been teased by Porsche, sporting a Taycan-like headlight setup. After the all-electric Macan, the All-electric 718 is planned for 2025.
The Porsche Cayenne is currently in its third generation and will see a comprehensive update this year, according to the company. The updates to the third-generation model include three further-developed plug-in hybrids with greater ranges. Thanks to a new chassis, there will also be an even wider breadth of abilities, balancing the on-road performance for which Porsche is famous, long-distance comfort and off-road capability.
The full electrification of the Cayenne will take place in its fourth generation, which will follow after the all-electric Macan and the all-electric 718. No further details have been revealed on the EV Porche Cayenne just yet.
Porsche is also planning to expand its portfolio with an all-electric SUV that is positioned above the Cayenne. According to Porsche, the new vehicle concept is designed to offer strong performance and automated driving functions with the typical Porsche flyline, along with a completely new experience inside the vehicle. It will be based on the SSP Sport platform developed by Porsche.
Porsche Chairman of the Executive, Oliver Blume said, “We are thereby underlining and strengthening our sporty luxury positioning. We are observing growing profit pools in this segment, in particular in China and the US.”
Porsche has also set itself ambitious sustainability targets. Within the scope of its strategy, the company is working towards a net carbon neutral value chain for its vehicles in 2030. This also includes a net carbon-neutral use phase for future BEV models (based on an assumed total mileage of 200,000 kilometres per vehicle). The EV Porsche Cayenne will debut after the all-electric 718.
