Hi,

do you think the new MACAN EV will be looking like this on the photo?

No. Lazy render, pasting a generic EV front on a Macan.

It's pretty much in-line with how I expect it to look. The designers at Porsche aren't going to completely re-invent the wheel, just update and tweak the design accordingly.
With a few nips and tucks, it'll be a decent looking SUV. I'd expect it'll have flush door handles, and the charge port in the render looks awkward (should continue the line from the door handles, like on the current Taycan). I doubt it'll have Mission-E wheels, too.

for those of you waiting for porsche to bring an EV macan to market I have just picked up an awesome EV SUV from Jagaur.
this is the I-pace and if you want a top notch EV SUV seek this rare bird out.

No thanks ? and not rare in UK
In my opinion it is a fantastic car, it's tech is far superior to the Taycan's, it's ride is great as is the fit and finish.
regardless of it's availability in the UK in the US it is a rare bird.
in my opinion it is a very viable option for those who are awaiting the Macan EV.

I just can’t get past the naming. There is both an I-Pace and an E-Pace (similar in appearance) but some idiot at JLR thought electric was spelt with an "I” and the E is an ICE vehicle.

Doesn’t say Porsche either so that will hold many folk back.

it has the benefit of a refresh and a much enhanced entertainment system - was criticised originally (sound familiar?).

Enjoy!

so you're po-pooing a car based on it's naming?

it may not say porsche but it is available NOW.

I have only driven a base macan loaner, the IPace blows that macan away in every aspect.

yes, the tech has been upgraded to what is a very good system replacing what was a very poor system, this is something porsche needs to get going on in their taycan and future EV offerings.

In this case yes and also the Landrover Discovery because of its off centre rear number plate placement. JLR are in denial on both of these faux pas.

Actually I’m not a Jag fan is the truth of it and worry about the long term stability of JLR. Perhaps the gorgeous new Range Rover will save the day.

In the UK, that "bird" is about as rare as a Taco Bell drivethrough. You can even subscribe to JLR and for £1000 a month, get the latest IPACE HSE that is replaced every six months with a brand new vehicle.

Audi e-Tron SUV is more interesting.
