About the Porsche Taycan
Meticulously perfected with innovative technologies developed on the racetrack and on the roadways, Porsche sets its vision towards the future with the Taycan — a striking exhibition of an all-electric sports sedan. Originally imagined as the Porsche Mission E concept, the Taycan pushes the limits of electric driving possibilities. Making history as the first purely electric sports car for the Porsche brand, the Taycan boasts a total system voltage of 800V*, a combined system output of 600 horsepower*, and blistering acceleration. Motorsports-inspired aerodynamics help the Taycan cut through the air and deliver sublime handling through the corners. A cleverly-positioned underbody battery gives the Taycan an optimal center of gravity and helps make its groundbreaking inductive charging capability possible.
Porsche Taycan Features
Two of the most vital aspects of electromobility are charge times and range distance. In an effort to revolutionize electric driving, the Porsche Taycan doubles the standard charging voltage to 800 volts*. As a result, the Taycan delivers shorter charge times and lower vehicle weight thanks to the use of thinner-gauge copper wires in its charging system. In fact, you will have the ability to travel more than 300 miles on a single charge and only 15 minutes are needed to recharge for another 250 miles of range*. Revolutionizing everyday practicality for an electric vehicle, the Taycan will debut with an innovative inductive charging capability. Using a coil installed within the garage floor, all the driver has to do is park the car over it for power to be seamlessly transferred wirelessly to the coil’s counterpart located in the underbody.
Each element of the exterior design of the Taycan has been carefully crafted to be instantly recognizable as a Porsche. Iconic qualities of Porsche sports cars were used in the design of the Taycan such as a low-slung roofline to help give the vehicle an unmistakable presence on the road. Eye-catching air intakes and outlets on the front, sides, and rear highlight the body’s comprehensive flow-through design. At the front, dynamic matrix LED headlights with Porsche’s signature four-point design hover within the air intakes. The Porsche Taycan offers a confident stance which hints at the potent performance capabilities of this astonishing all-electric sports car.
Development & Innovation
At Porsche, vehicle names have a visceral connection with the corresponding model and its characteristics. Using linguistic roots from the East, the name “Taycan” means the equivalent of “spirited young horse”. This references imagery found at the heart of the Porsche crest, first introduced in 1952.
Porsche aims to invest more than six billion Euros in electromobility by 2022, doubling the amount which had originally been planned. The Taycan will be constructed inside a dedicated assembly area at Stuttgart-Zuffenhausen. Portions of the original engine plant will be converted to produce electric drivetrains. As a result, the Taycan will create around 1,200 new jobs in Zuffenhausen alone.
