Porsche’s new Macan SUV is set to hit dealerships in April. Built at the newly expanded Leipzig production facility, Porsche has slowly been releasing information about its future plans for the vehicle platform.
CEO Matthias Meuller says the company is developing a wide range of variants, mostly including performance upgrades, but a few others are expected like a plug-in hybrid edition, and a cheaper entry-level model.
The Macan S Diesel is headed for US markets, and will produce 240 horsepower and 428 lb-ft of torque, with fuel efficiency slightly above the 30 MPG mark! Also available is a Turbo model with 400 horsepower and 406 lb-ft of torque.
Porsche has not given any details or time-frame on the Macan Plug-in Hybrid, other than to say they are working on it.
