Porsche is planning to expand its electric vehicle (EV) portfolio with the addition of an all-electric Panamera as part of a plan to have six electric models available for sale by 2030.
According to a report by Autocar, the German automaker will base the Panamera on Volkswagen Group’s Scalable Systems Platform (SSP), which is currently being developed in-house by Porsche.
The report states the SSP architecture will be used with other high-volume electric models from VW, but for Porsche will be known as the SSP Sport structure with “Porsche specific modules.”
Details are still being finalized, but the electric Panamera will reportedly be of a similar size to that of the long-wheelbase Panamera sold in China (3100mm and 5199mm). It will also feature 800V architecture, but have “energy-efficient cell technology and a higher-silicon-content anode than that used by Porsche today,” reports Autocar.
The Panamera won’t be the only Porsche EV to built on this platform, as it will reportedly be launched alongside a second-generation Taycan in 2026 or 2027.
Before that happens however, Porsche will launch its recently announced seventh model line on the SSP, a seven-seat SUV codenamed ‘K1’ that is set to debut around 2025.
