Porsche is primed to launch an all-electric Cayenne SUV in 2026, with a platform shared with its Macan EV, the Transcontinental Times has learned.
The German automaker has long sought to move away from the traditional internal combustion engine-powered vehicles, and this latest move is the next step in Porsche’s journey toward an all-electric future.
The Cayenne EV is expected to be based on the brand’s Premium Platform Electric (PPE) architecture, which is set to be shared with the Macan EV. The platform is designed to allow for a wide range of electric vehicles, from a compact SUV to a large saloon.
The Cayenne EV will feature two electric motors, one for each axle, with a combined power output estimated to be around 500 horsepower. The batteries are expected to have a range of up to 500 kilometers (310 miles).
The Cayenne EV will feature a number of advanced driver-assistance features, including lane-keeping assist, adaptive cruise control, and automated parking. It will also feature a suite of connected services, such as over-the-air software updates and remote diagnostics.
The Cayenne EV is expected to be priced at around €100,000, which is roughly the same as the current top-of-the-range Cayenne Turbo S.
Porsche has yet to officially confirm the launch of the all-electric Cayenne, but the company’s CEO, Oliver Blume, recently said that the company is “working intensively” on the project.
The introduction of the all-electric Cayenne in 2026 will mark a major milestone for the brand, as it continues its journey toward an all-electric future.
