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 maximum system output of 938 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. Inside the cabin, drivers will have access to a fully digital curved display adapted to suit the interior design that’s quintessentially Porsche. Advanced connectivity features help you monitor efficiency, charge, and performance with a quick glance at one of up to three different display screens inside the Porsche Taycan.

The Taycan also does a remarkable job of reminding its pilot that they're driving a Porsche thanks to its lively steering, stoic composure, and refined ride. Stomping the accelerator is like firing a missile, except it can be done repeatedly.” — Car and Driver

“When the road turns into track, however, the Taycan turns into a Porsche. At our test facility for this story, the magnificent Atlanta Motorsports Park, the Taycan proved itself 100 percent worthy of the crest on its hood.” — Road and Track

Charging Innovations

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 350 miles on a single charge. Revolutionizing everyday practicality for an electric vehicle, the Taycan offers a variety of charging solutions while helping to eliminate range anxiety. In addition to home charging capabilities, you’ll have access to Porsche Turbo Charging at authorized Porsche dealers along with an expanding network of Electrify America 800V DC fast charging stations.

Iconic design features have been re-imagined and brought into the digital age inside the Porsche Taycan. Simplistic elegance and minimalism are two instantly recognizable aspects of the cabin design. An innovative instrument cluster consists of a curved 16.8-inch screen with a rounded look that’s typical of Porsche. Drivers can choose between four display modes – Classic, Map, Full Map, and Pure to personalize the way they view critical information. “Race-Tex” material is used in place of leather for the seat upholstery, offering a high-quality microfibre material partially consisting of recycled polyester fibers. Another sign of the future, interior airflows are now controlled both digitally and fully automatically via Virtual Airflow Control. Features such as Porsche Active Suspension Management (PASM) can quickly be accessed on the central screen.
