The launch of the new Porsche Macan electric SUV has been delayed by a year because software development within the Volkswagen Group has been slower than expected.

The Macan electric car will be one of the first production cars to use Porsche and Audi's PPE pure electric platform, and Porsche has now confirmed that the car will be delayed until 2024. Issues surrounding the E3 1.2 software platform of Cariad, the software arm of the Volkswagen Group, contributed to the delay.

Porsche confirmed the news in its stock prospectus for its IPO last month, in which Porsche warned that the delay could also make "BEV models of the 718 (Porsche Boxster and Porsche Cayman) and Porsche Cayenne in particular." The launch schedule was delayed. However, a specific timetable for the launch of these cars has not been given.

In the prospectus, Porsche also warned that Cariad's simultaneous development of a separate E3 2.0 software stack means that it "may allocate more development capabilities and resources to the E3 2.0 version to the detriment of further development of the E3 1.2 platform."

Porsche has said in the past that it is not bound by the Volkswagen Group's future platform strategy, particularly the Scalable System Platform (SSP) for electric vehicles, which will eventually replace PPE.

Porsche said it will lead the development of a performance version of the platform called the SSP Sport, which will be used in the next-generation Panamera and Taycan, as well as an unnamed "new all-electric luxury SUV model."

Porsche has said it expects more than 50 percent of cars delivered in 2025 to be electrified, rising to 80 percent fully electric by 2030. Electric vehicles (both Taycan models) accounted for 14 percent of Porsche sales last year, while plug-in hybrids made up 11 percent.

Porsche says the Macan EV will use a similar 800V electrical architecture to the Taycan, with improvements in range. IT Home has learned that Porsche has started testing the SUV in May 2021 and will be built at its Leipzig plant, where the gasoline version of the Macan is produced.
