    Porsche has spent at least three years deliberating what it should do about the Macan. It all started with a rumor that the Macan EV would kill the gas-powered Macan in 2021. But, that never happened.

    Fast forward to 2020, and there was word of what we called the “dual-Macan strategy” in which the current Macan would be sold alongside the Macan EV. The idea was to ease the transition to EVs but also give customers a choice.

    That dual-Macan strategy seemed like it might be short-lived, though, as a rumor said Porsche may just drop the gas-powered Macan and sell only the Electric Macan as early as 2024 - A brave move indeed.

    He was quick to point out, that it’s not just Porsche’s desire to speed up the electrification process. “Emissions laws are another limiting factor” in regard to how long the gas-powered Macan can survive.

    As of now, we believe the Macan EV will be revealed sometime in mid-2022 and will go on sale in 2023, which means the current Macan will only be sold along side its new EV counterpart for a year or a little more at best.
