It will be the third new model to roll off the assembly line after the Macan EV, which will be launched in 2024, and the all-electric 718, which is expected to be launched by 2025
Porsche recently held its annual press conference in Wolfsburg. One of the biggest announcements the automaker made here was the all-electric Cayenne SUV. This electric vehicle (EV), according to the company, will be launched in 2026. This means it will be the third new model to hit the production line, after the Macan EV, which will launch in 2024, and the all-electric 718, which is expected to launch in 2025. The all-electric Porsche Cayenne will be the premium Share the Platform Electric (PPE) architecture of the upcoming Macan EV.

Otherwise, not much is known about the technical data of the all-electric Cayenne. Autocar anticipates that the luxury vehicle will carry a larger unit than the Macan EV’s 100 kWh battery pack. The SUV will have a brief reign on Porsche’s flagship SUV, ending once the Porsche K1 is launched. The new vehicle will offer “strong performance and automated driving functions with the typical Porsche flyline, along with a completely new experience inside the vehicle,” according to the company.
The all-electric Porsche Cayenne will be sold alongside the current Cayenne models with internal combustion engines (ICE). By the time the Cayenne EV is launched, the ICE range will also receive a number of important updates. Porsche promises an extensive update with three further developed plug-in hybrids. They’ll flaunt longer ranges, better on- and off-road performance, and more comfortable long-distance rides.
Porsche’s all-encompassing focus on expanding its SUV offering is backed by strong earnings numbers. Last year alone, the Macan sold 86,724 units and despite its popularity, it couldn’t beat the Cayenne as this SUV posted sales of 95,604 units. The Italian carmaker sold a total of 3,09,884 units last year. Macan and Cayenne together accounted for over 50 percent of the company’s total sales. “We are seeing growing profit pools in this segment, particularly in China and the US,” said CEO Oliver Blume.
The all-electric Cayenne is likely to continue its role as a favourite. It will play a critical role in bringing the company closer to its goal of having 80 percent of sales from the electric vehicle segment by the end of this decade.
