The interior matches that of the current Cayenne in terms of style and layout. It features up to three digital displays: a standard 12.6in curved instrument cluster and 10.9in infotainment touchscreen, plus an optional separate 10.9in touchscreen for the passenger, which allows them to stream videos and adjust various controls.
The infotainment set-up is based on an Android Automotive operating system, which offers a ‘Hey Porsche’ voice assistant as well as a new Porsche App Centre, where occupants can directly access and download apps from third-party providers.
As with the Cayenne, the gear selector has been moved from the centre console to a higher position on the dashboard, providing additional space for two cupholders and a smartphone charging pad within the centre console.
The longer wheelbase enables greater leg room in both rows, while boot space is claimed to be 540 litres, 43 litres more than in the petrol Macan, despite the new model’s coupé-style roof. There is an 84-litre ‘frunk’ too.
The first two electric Macan models use dual permanent synchronous motors with a single-speed gearbox on each axle. The front motor is supplied by Bosch, while the rear motor is produced by Porsche at its manufacturing base in Zuffenhausen, Germany.
