Volkswagen's sportscar brand Porsche hopes to make more than 80,000 units of the Macan EV, which is a similar number as the internal combustion engine variant of the SUV. Porsche production chief Albrecht Reimold has told this to Automobilwoche magazine in an interview. Porsche has hinted at an electric Macan for a number of years and, in early 2021, finally confirmed the vehicle. It's due in 2023, meaning it would arrive as a 2024 model.

Reimold reportedly said that Porsche expects to produce as many units of its Macan model in the electric version as the original with an internal combustion engine. "We produce more than 80,000 units of today's generation, and in the long term we also plan to produce as many of the all-electric Macan," Reimold said.

Porsche Macan EV's prototype has been spotted testing several times. Expect the car to come carrying the basic silhouette of the compact luxury SUV. However, being an EV, it will carry some distinctive styling efforts as well. The major among them will be the removal of the front grille and the addition of a body panel in place of that. It could come with a small rear spoiler that is meant to extend from the tailgate at high speeds. The automaker is reportedly relying on both real-world and virtual testing to speed up the development of the Macan EV, especially to sharpen the aerodynamics of the EV.
