In addition to confirming its upcoming Cajun compact crossover for the US market, Porsche has announced that it will also offer a diesel variant of its larger Cayenne SUV. The Cayenne diesel will be Porsche’s “first compression-ignition car in the USA.” The engine is a 3.0-liter V6 that produces 242 horsepower and 406 lb-ft (550 Nm) of torque, allowing the sporty SUV to accelerate from 0 to 62 mph (0-100 km/h) in 7.6 seconds and to a top speed of 137 mph (220 km/h).
The Cayenne diesel, along with the Cajun, will go on sale later this spring.
Porsche Is Working On An All-Electric Macan
The German automaker is electrifying its smallest SUV.
Porsche has announced work on an all-electric version of the Macan that it plans to release a few years after the Tesla Model S-rivaling Taycan sedan and its slightly higher-riding sibling, the Taycan Cross Turismo, go on sale. The company approved the project at the end of 2018 in hopes to bringing the crossover to market by 2022.
“Electromobility and Porsche go together perfectly; not just because they share a high-efficiency approach, but especially because of their sporty character,” Porsche CEO Oliver Blume stated. “By 2022 we will be investing more than six billion euros in electric mobility, and by 2025 50 percent of all new Porsche vehicles could have an electric drive system.”
An electric Macan would likely be positioned as the Porsche’s volume-seller in the electric car arena, seeing as the current Macan outsells the Panamera by a ratio of three-to-one. It will be built on Volkswagen Group’s Premium Platform Electric (PPE) architecture, sharing its DNA with Audi’s upcoming Q4 e-tron compact electric crossover.
The announcement coincides with the company’s plan to have half of its lineup to be available with electric powertrains by 2025.
Porsche Taycan Owners Get Three Years Of Free Charging
The German luxury electric sedan will charge for free on Electrify America network at a quick pace.
Porsche has announced that the Taycan, it’s first-ever all-electric vheicle, will come with three years of free charging on the Volkswagen Group’s Electrify America network.
Created as part of VW’s emissions violations settlement, Electrify America plans to build more than 300 highway charging locations and even more community sites across the United States, offering DC fast charging at rates up to 350 kilowatts for a wide range of electric vehicles from various automakers. Porsche’s 191 dealerships will also have DC fast charging installed onsite.
The German automaker claims the Taycan has the fastest charge rate of any EV, capable of adding 60 miles *96 km) of range in just four minutes via a 350-kilowatt connection and 800-volt vehicle battery architecture.
“Together, Electrify America and our Porsche dealer network will provide a national infrastructure for DC fast charging that frees future Taycan owners from range anxiety,” said Klaus Zellmer, President and CEO of PCNA. “And Porsche home charging technology will turn the customer’s garage into the equivalent of a personal gas station.”
Porsche is so confident in the success of its first-ever electric car that it doubled output from the initial target of 20,000 units per year to 40,000 units annually.
Porsche Doubles Taycan Production To 40,000 A Year
The company expects to sell as many of its electric car as the Tesla Model S.
An optimistic Porsche has doubled its planned annual production volume for the Taycan, its first-ever all-electric vehicle.
In anticipation of strong demand, the German automaker has increased output from the initial target of 20,000 units per year to 40,000 units annually.
“We had been ready for it,” Porsche spokesperson Andrew Lennon told . “We had the ability to increase capacity from the beginning, and executives recently made the decision to go ahead.”
Porsche likely expects Taycan sales to match or exceed demand for the Tesla Model S. In 2018, Tesla delivered more than 99,000 Model S and X vehicles, with the Model S accounting for approximately half of that combined total.
The Porsche Taycan goes on sale by the end of 2019. Pricing hasn’t been announced, but it will reportedly start between the Cayenne and Panamera, suggesting a price of around $80,000 in the United States.
