An Electric Version Of The Porsche Cayenne Is Coming: Report

A fully electric version of the Porsche Cayenne could be part of a massive update for the SUV


  • Currently, the Cayenne is offered with PHEV technology.

  • We know the next Macan will be electric and this move makes sense.

  • It might arrive in 2024 or 2025.


With the Volkswagen Group’s well-known intentions of electrifying its entire lineup, offering a fully electric version of the best-selling Porsche Cayenne is a no-brainer. Porsche will launch a fully electric Macan by 2022 and the Taycan has proven its mettle in more ways than one.

The current-generation Porsche Cayenne dates back to 2018. The prior generation was launched for 2011 while the original Cayenne was introduced in 2003. With this in mind, a 2024 or 2025 launch year makes sense for a fully electric Cayenne as it would likely coincide with the arrival of the 4th coming of the sporty SUV.

As far as the platform and powertrain are concerned, Porsche and Audi essentially already have it all figured out. According to Car and Driver, the Cayenne EV would sit on the PPE platform from the Taycan and e-tron GT. A dual-motor AWD configuration along with any one of the three battery sizes could indicate a complete trim offering, including a Cayenne Turbo S EV with up to 750 horsepower.

Most likely, the Cayenne EV will be sold alongside current powertrains. By the end of the decade, however, electric power may very well take over for good.
