The next-generation Porsche Cayenne will offer a pure electric version that assumedly arrives in 2024 or 2025.
The information, still unconfirmed officially, has come from a source in Stuttgart, Autoweek reports.
So, the larger Cayenne will follow the way of the smaller Porsche Macan which goes all-electric in 2022. Both models ride on the PPE platform co-developed with Audi and designed for all future Porsche EVs. Those new arrivals are part of the company’s plan to offer over 80 percent of its fleet with electric engines by 2030.
Currently, the Porsche Cayenne is quite good in terms of electrification. The model has already had efficient plug-in hybrid versions. The Cayenne’s list of powertrains is decent: it ranges from 335 hp to 670 hp, includes V6 engines, hybrid and plug-in hybrids variants, and even a 460-hp twin-turbo V8 on the GTS model.
If the next Cayenne shares powertrain options with the Porsche Taycan, it will possibly offer up to 750 hp on the top of the range, and the larger battery packs than those 71.0-kWh and 83.7-kWh ones of the Taycan. Expect the standard all-wheel-drive setup to be available for the Cayenne EV.
