Porsche Macan: running costs & insurance

It may be a premium SUV, but the Macan still benefits from the typical EV savings

The Porsche Macan is a high-performance SUV that wears one of the most renowned sporting badges in the business, so it’d be safe to assume that it’s not going to be particularly budget friendly to run.

However, this is still an electric car, so the initial pinch of the near-£70,000 starting price will soon be eased by significantly lower running costs than an equivalent combustion model. As with all EVs, the Macan qualifies for zero VED road tax until 1 April 2025. It’ll also avoid emissions-based charging zones.

If you’re a company car driver, the 2% Benefit-in-Kind tax rate should make things even more appealing. 

Charging up the hefty 95kW battery won’t prove too demanding on your bank account, either, as a 0-100% charge at home should cost around £30 at a typical rate of 30p/kWh. Of course, using a public charger (particularly a rapid one) will drive this price upwards. 

Porsche Macan insurance group

Insurance groups are yet to be allocated to the electric Porsche Macan. For reference, the previous Macan resides in groups 41-47, while the Taycan sits as high as group 50. We expect the new Macan will follow a similar trend, so don’t expect premiums to be very cheap.

Warranty

The Porsche Macan is sold with the same warranty coverage as the Taycan. This consists of a standard three year/unlimited mileage plan for the car itself, plus eight-years of cover for the battery.

Servicing

Porsche recommends that the Macan is serviced every 24 months or 20,000 miles, whichever comes first.

Road tax

The Porsche Macan Electric is rated for zero VED road tax until 1 April 2025.
