The German brand officially announces the countdown to the unveiling of the new electric Macan by releasing the first official image of its interior, which of course has many common features from the recent Panamera and Cayenne.
Its premiere is expected to take place around the middle of next year, with the Macan EV being Porsche’s second purely electric model after the Taycan.
The first image of the interior reveals the same driver-centric concept that governs all the latest Porsches with the digital instrument panel being the highest point of the dashboard with the exception of course of the classic chronograph which is part of the optional options and the Sport Chrono package.
The central infotainment screen with a diagonal of 12.3 inches hovers lower, which benefits from Porsche’s newest software, which promises more ease of use, but also new applications such as the intelligent navigation system that includes charging points, live traffic information conditions and dynamically calculates the appropriate route.
Behind the familiar steering wheel the digital instrument panel is fully customizable allowing the driver to choose what information they want to see from the full screen navigation system to a digital display of the Porsche ‘analogue’ instruments.
A third infotainment screen for the front passenger that is not visible to the driver when the car is in motion is also available as an option. Among the Macan’s neologisms is ambient lighting, which until now at least has been more subtle in the case of Porsches than the habits of premium German manufacturers.
Lower on the central console is the familiar Cayenne and Panamera control surface for the air conditioning system, however, in the absence of a conventional transmission system and the associated tunnel, the space between the two front seats has an additional storage space.
