Porsche Macan Can Be A Hybrid
Porsche plans to increase the number of rechargeable hybrids in its model lineup to the maximum. Simply put, a hybrid modification will sooner or later get all the family, including the sports car Porsche 911. But the main candidate for hybridization is now considered the Macan crossover.
The company attributed the active development of the use of hybrid power plants not only with the tightening of environmental standards, but also with the ability to provide for their sports cars more power while reducing fuel consumption. The final decision on the launch of the Macan hybrid has not been made, but, by and large, it's only a matter of time.
Director of Porsche sales Julian Baumann said the Motoring publication that the company is ready at any moment to start the development, if required by the market need to either change the legislative standards.
Most likely, this crossover will receive the traditional name Macan S E-Hybrid - with this prefix already sold hybrid Cayenne and Panamera. It is not excluded that they crossover borrow and power unit. In its composition involves three-liter V6 rated at 333 HP and a 95-horsepower electric motor, developing collectively 416 horsepower. The most powerful petrol Macan has today 400 "horses".
Representative Porsche also noted that the company has no plans to release a three-door version of the Macan, as it most likely will not justify even the cost of its development. As an example, Julian Baumann led Range Rover Evoque: according to him selling three-door modifications are only 20% of the total sales of the British crossover.
