Porsche finally released some more details on its next-generation Premium Platform Electric (PPE) platform. The PPE will first appear on the Macan SUV, with additional models debuting on the platform later in 2024.

Per the release, here is what we know:

  • The platform is being built on 800-volt architecture.
  • The powertrain will be around 450 kW or 611 horsepower with a torque of about 738 pounds. It will support both all-wheel drive and rear-wheel drive.
  • The battery will be charged from five to 80 per cent in twenty-five minutes.
  • New chassis with a ‘performance rear axle’. This new axel design shifts the weight by two per cent to allow for better performance and acceleration.
  • Vehicles with PPE will also have: Porsche Torque Vectoring Plus, Porsche Traction Management, and Porsche Active Suspension Management to improve the performance of the Macan and future models.

The PPE is the focal point of Porsche’s goal to have half of Porsche cars sold to be electric by 2025. According to the Porsche Roadmap, the company has a further goal of 80 per cent of new car deliveries being electric by 2040.

The goal of the PPE is to provide Porsche with a high-volume electric platform that can maintain the high technical standards the brand is known for in the auto world. Porsche also shared some new images showing off the testing of the Macan in prototype form.
