We’ve been eagerly awaiting the arrival of Porsche’s second fully electric vehicle, the Macan EV. Well unfortunately we have to wait a bit longer, since Porsche has confirmed that launch of the Macan EV has been delayed until 2024.

According to Autocar, software development is being blamed for the delay, specifically the E3 1.2 software platform by Cariad, which is the software division of the Volkswagen Group. Porsche confirmed the delay in the shares prospectus that was issued last month, as part of its IPO. The delay of the Macan EV could also mean that electric versions of the Porsche Boxster, Cayman and Cayenne could also be delayed.

The Macan EV is one of the first vehicles to get the new Premium Platform Electric (PPE) platform that will be used by Porsche and Audi. Porsche is also working on a performance version platform called SSP Sport, which will be used by the next Panamera and Taycan, in addition to a new electric SUV. Porsche estimates that 50 percent of its sales in will be electrified cars in 2025, which will increase to 80 percent by 2030.
