Very happy to find my exact car at number three :D
Mrs D’s ideal SUV, I’ve had a hybrid loaner a couple of time but never had the opportunity for any meaningful experience. Tell me, how do you find the hybrid system in terms of everyday usability and overall mpg? Do you charge at home or do you simply harvest the regen? Mike

The hybrid system is brilliant, seamless in every way, fast slow and everything in between. I cant fault it at all. Its a pity Porsche hasn't managed to put this drive train into a Macan as the only down side for some would be the size. I charge at home with the 32a Porsche charger supplied with the car. This takes about three hours so often if I've been out in the morning somewhere and plug it back in I can make it back and forward to the golf club in the afternoon on electric alone. Unless I have some distance to go I can run about on electric for days on end. A high speed 150 mile run last week averaged 33mpg which I thought wasn't bad at all given its size and weight. Around town even with the battery discharged it is even better usually settling at over 40mpg.

And if home charging was not possible...? Are there public charging options and can regen top-up meaningfully?

I haven't tried to charge it from a public charger but it shouldn't be an issue. It doesnt have a fast charge capability so will still take three hours from a public charger I think. Even without charging I think 30mpg should be possible as long as you don't have too heavy a right foot. You can use the engine to charge the battery while driving but this is bound to increase fuel consumption so not worth doing unless you need battery to enter a no emissions area.

I bought my Macan Turbo partly because of the good residuals, my previous car AMG C63s dropped 50% off new value in just under 2 years
