The electric Porsche Macan is delayed, and you’ll never guess why.

The German carmaker has to delay the launch of the new Porsche Macan by at least a year because of the Volkswagen Group.

Porsche is finalising the development of its next 100% electric model, the Porsche Macan EV, the next generation of which will be all-electric.

The Porsche Macan is very important to the brand, as it is one of its best-selling models.

After the success of the Porsche Taycan, the first pure electric car launched by the brand a few years ago, it was obvious that the brand would continue to move towards new electric models and this is the perfect model to do so.

However, Porsche has announced that its launch will be delayed by at least a year and the Porsche Macan EV will not be on sale until at least 2024.

The Porsche Macan is also a very special car, as it will be one of the first to use the new PPE (Premium Electric Platform) development platform developed jointly by Porsche and Audi.


Software to blame for Porsche Macan delay

Far from thinking that Porsche might need more time to develop the vehicle, the brand itself has given details of the reasons why it has been forced to delay its launch.

Porsche is pointing directly to the software being developed by Cariad, a company belonging to the Volkswagen group, which is in charge of developing all the software for future VW group cars.

Software is seen as key to the future of the automotive industry and the Volkswagen group is committed to developing its own software in-house, but it seems that things are not going as well as expected.

It is not the first time that Volkswagen has had such an incident, as with the launch of the Volkswagen ID.3, many functions had to be postponed to a later date in order to be able to deliver these vehicles on time.
