    In Pro 2.0 it does not appear it is possible to create a new map within the project. Please consider adding a method to the ArcGISProject object with the ability to create a new map with a name from arcpy.

     

    Alternatively a copy map method on the existing Map object would be a workable alternative 

     

    You can copy/paste maps manually in a project so this functionality seems like a necessary addition for additional project automation.
