Porsche confirmed today it plans to introduce an electric version of the Cayenne SUV in 2026, and an all-new flagship electric SUV in 2027. Porsche CEO Oliver Blume announced the timeline of their electric strategy on Monday after sharing the automaker’s 2022 financial results.
Other than confirmation that an electric Cayenne is being developed, something what has been rumoured to be happening for a quite a while, not many other details were provided by Porsche or Blume. What we do know is that it will be part of their electric strategy, which aims to have 80% of their sales be electric by 2030, and arrive after the introduction of an electric Porsche Macan in 2024 and Porsche 718 in 2025.
Porsche of course already offers one pure electric vehicle (EV), the Taycan, which first debuted in 2020.
The German automaker isn’t stopping with there as Blume also announced on Monday that after the Cayenne will come an all-new flagship electric SUV. According to Porsche the new electric SUV will be built on the Scalable Systems Platform or SSP Sport, with Blume saying it will “offer strong performance” and “automated driving functions.”
As we have previously reported this upcoming EV, codenamed K1, is going to be larger than the Cayenne and offer seating for seven. Porsche expects the new electric SUV to be popular, and profitable, in North America and China, both of which have large markets for SUVs.
