I was shocked when rumors said Porsche would make the forthcoming Macan redesign a full EV. CUVs/SUVs are used for different purposes than most sedans, when tend to just be commuter cars. Families buy CUVs and take them on getaways outside the city, road trips, etc. It makes zero sense to completely kill off the ICE version.

I think there was enough negative feedback from customers to pressure them into offering a gas version alongside it at least for a few years, but from what I remember the gas version will just be the current model.

Regardless, for us enthusiasts a full-EV Macan would be a blow. My father bought a new Macan S about a year ago and I absolutely love rowing through my own gears, seeing those aggressive quad pipes, and listening to the exhaust note in that thing.
