Dealers predict it’ll be a plug-in hybrid, at least initially. A full-on battery-electric version is expected to come at a later date. There’s a decent possibility the unnamed new Porsche could utilize various mechanical and technical aspects from parent company Volkswagen Group’s new Landjet project. That electric flagship vehicle is being developed for VW, Audi, and Porsche.
We still don’t know whether Landjet-based models will be SUVs, sedans, or a mix of both. Porsche’s need for a three-row vehicle, regardless of powertrain type, is quite necessary. Without one, it’s simply missing out on even greater sales. Next year, a pure EV version of the Macan compact crossover will arrive, though it may not utilize the Macan name.
