Porsche has released new information about the PPE platform, a platform that will be used in its future electric cars.
Porsche’s success in this incipient electric era is more than evident, and the Porsche Taycan has exceeded all expectations of the brand where its most diehard customers have welcomed with open arms its first 100% electric model.
But Porsche does not stop and is already finalising the launch of the new Porsche Macan, the successful mid-size SUV that will become an all-electric model in 2024, which will use the new PPE (Premium Platform Electric) platform for the first time.
Porsche is also working on a new development platform called PPE, the brand’s next-generation electric car platform, which will offer significant advantages and benefits over the current platform.
One of the benefits of the new PPE platform developed jointly by Porsche and Audi will be the possibility of a rear-wheel drive or all-wheel drive configuration, i.e. one or two electric motors, which will initially deliver around 450 kW of power (612 kW) with a maximum torque of 1,000 Nm.
In addition, like the Porsche Taycan, this platform can be fitted with an 800-volt electric system, one of the advantages of an 800-volt system being the possibility of allowing higher charging capacities than vehicles equipped with a 400-volt electric system.
According to the brand, it will be possible to charge the Macan’s 100 kWh capacity battery from 5 to 80 per cent in just 25 minutes, and it will allow charging powers of over 270 kW, which will exceed the power currently offered by the Porsche Taycan.
In addition, the PPE platform will be able to integrate Porsche technology, such as the PTM (Porsche Traction Management) system or the PASM (Porsche Active Suspension Management) system, with which the brand will provide its vehicles with absolutely brilliant and excellent driving and vehicle control.
