a week Ago I we reported on the possibility that Porsche finally threw the mud and bring it to the world a SUV below the current Macan. If we analyze friamente the situation, a priori, it seems rather far-fetched one hundred percent and more when the firm already have violated certain lines red. However, it seems that in the mark are not willing to reduce even more cache premium car and luxury.
According to Detlev von Platen, head of global sales of the brand, Porsche is a sports car manufacturer and very exclusive. According to Platen, to create an SUV below the current Macan would provide very good benefits, but they would be diluting the image of exclusivity that has the signature and therefore they would be moving away from its positioning in the market.
For the signature belonging to the Volkswagen Group what is important is the quality manufacturing of their cars and not the total amount sold by at the end of each financial year. In addition, the management also took the opportunity to confirm that the possibility of launching to the market a sport more accessible below the current 718 Boxter and Cayman not fit into the plans of the brand.
that has clarified and confirmed is that the firm, like the rest of brands of the Volkswagen Group, is working on the launch of its next electric car. This model should reach the market in the year 2020 and you should be able to go with a single recharge of its batteries is about 500 kilometers.
finally, another aspect that also took advantage Platen to clarify is about the Panamera and its variants of bodywork. Porsche would be working on other versions although for now no is a priority and we do not know precisely on what concepts they would be working.
Will have to see how Porsche is facing the future after the Dieselgate and the restructuring that lives in the Volkswagen Group. We are aware of.
