News Porsche will sell an electric crossover above the Cayenne

Porsche will sell an electric crossover above the Cayenne

  • This futur crossover will be very sporty.

  • It will benefit from the technology introduced with the Mission R concept.

  • Porsche is also working on electric versions of Cayenne, Macan and the 718 Boxster/Cayman tandem.


Every car manufacturer has its own idea of what is coming to its fleet in the upcoming years. And the brand from Zuffenhausen is no exception to this rule. In fact, Porsche is already involved in an electric shift, with a current range of pure electric Taycan models.

In addition to the highly anticipated Macan EV 2024 – which has not been released as of yet –, Porsche is also working on electric versions of the 718 Boxster and Cayman for the “middle of the decade”. But there’s more, as Porsche is also working on an electric version of its other popular SUV, the Cayenne, which could arrive as early as 2026.

But that’s not all, as the brand’s strategists also intend to tackle the segment above the Cayenne, the utility model that could likely adopt a three-row seating configuration.

As Porsche CEO Oliver Blume reminds us in the release: “We are thereby underlining and strengthening our sporty luxury positioning. We are observing growing profit pools in this segment, in particular in China and the US”.

This new model will be based on the new SSP Sport Platform (for Scalable Systems Platform). And with that larger future crossover still a few years away, the 911 automaker’s engineers still have time to include the technology shown in the stunning Mission R prototype.

Described by the brand’s CEO as a very sporty interpretation of an SUV, the new model is expected to inherit a new high-performance battery, as well as a 920-volt electrical system, which should reduce recharging times, much like the Taycan did when it first arrived on the market.

What’s clear is that the brand’s image has changed greatly since the arrival of the very first Cayenne in 2002, when Porsche was exclusively a sports car brand.
