The highly anticipated Porsche Macan EV has officially debuted in two options – the Macan 4 and Macan Turbo. And with the configurator now up and running, we can explore various color choices, finishes, and costs. In order to test the limits, we have customized ours using the more expensive Turbo model, starting at $106,950.

There are a total of thirteen exterior paint choices offered on the electric Macan configurator. Interestingly, ten of these options come at no additional cost, which is not common for Porsche. Our personal favorites include Provence (the striking purple color used for the launch) and Frozen Blue Metallic. For an added cost of $2,490, buyers can select from the ‘Legends’ range, which features unique shades such as Oak Green Metallic Neo, Aventurine Green Metallic, and Copper Ruby Metallic. Of course, Porsche also offers a Paint to Sample service for those looking for a truly customized look.

Consumers have a variety of options when it comes to selecting the perfect set of wheels for their vehicle. They can choose from a total of twenty-one and twenty-two-inch sizes, including the Offroad Design priced at $1,900 and the RS Spyder Design coming in at $3,890. The most expensive option is the Exclusive Design alloys with carbon fiber aeroblades, costing $7,410. These wheels can also be personalized even more with various finishes for an extra charge. Standard summer tires are included, but for those with 22-inch wheels, there is an additional fee of $630 for Performance summer tires.

Let’s delve into the inner features of the vehicle; Porsche offers multiple trim choices to accommodate different preferences and budgets. The default option is black leather, however, there are other options such as Black/Chalk, Black/Bordeaux Red, and Black/Night Green at an additional cost of $220. Moreover, there are choices for stitching, trimming, and embossing as well.

Purchasing a complete leather interior will require customers to spend anywhere from $2,320 to $2,570. For those seeking the most luxurious option, the Club Leather interior in Truffle Brown will come at a premium price of $2,870. Optional add-ons such as heated rear seats ($570), ventilated front seats ($650), and a combined massage and ventilation function for the front seats ($1,300) are also available.

The Macan EV can be enhanced with the $1,300 Premium Package which includes features like heated rear seats, ventilated front seats, and a four-zone climate control system. For a more rugged appearance, you can opt for the $1,410 Offroad Design Package. Additionally, various exterior trim pieces such as side mirrors, door handles, side blades, and roof racks can be personalized to your liking.

In terms of performance, the inclusion of rear-axle steering comes at a high cost of $2,040. However, it is still more affordable than the Sport Chrono Package with the Porsche Design Subsecond Clock, which adds an extra $2,090 to the price tag. For those seeking a more athletic sound from their Macan Turbo, the option to include the Porsche Electric Sport Sound box is available for an additional $490.

Some less riveting components include a back windshield wiper ($370), a warmed front window ($450), and thermally and noise insulated windows ($920).

In total, a fully equipped model would cost approximately $153,000. Although this may seem like a high price for a small electric SUV, it is the first of its kind from Porsche and will surely boast exceptional craftsmanship and an impressive driving experience. It should also be noted that the Mercedes-AMG EQE SUV, while slower and less powerful than the Porsche, is actually more costly in comparison.
