Built on the new Premium Platform Electric (PPE) with 800-volt architecture, the Macan Turbo EV SUV draws power from a 100kWh battery pack, offering a WLTP-claimed range of up to 591km. With a 270kW DC fast charger, the battery can be charged from 10-80 percent in approximately 21 minutes. The dual-motor setup on both axles delivers an impressive 630bhp and 1130Nm of torque, propelling the SUV from 0-100kmph in just 3.3 seconds.
