About the Porsche Taycan
Initially imagined through the vision of the Mission E concept, the Porsche Taycan marks the next step in the brand’s vision of an electrified future. Using perfected technologies developed at the racetrack and on the roadways, the first purely electric Porsche sports car boasts a total system voltage of 800V. This results in a combined system output of 600 horsepower along with an astounding top track speed of 155 MPH. Slicing through the air and staying firmly planted during high-speed cornering, the Porsche Taycan offers perfected aerodynamics for unrivaled handling. Ingeniously placed in the underbody of the vehicle, the battery of the Porsche Taycan contributes to an optimally-balanced center of gravity and allows for its convenient inductive charging capability.
Porsche Taycan Features
Two essential components of electromobility are short charge times and generous range capability. Revolutionizing the way you’ll view the concept of all-electric driving, the Porsche Taycan doubles the traditional charging voltage to 800 volts. The end result is shorter charge times and reduced vehicle weight thanks to thinner-gauge copper wires used in the charging system of the Taycan. As a result, you’ll have the capability to drive more than 300 miles using a single charge and only 15 minutes are required to restore another 250 miles of range. Changing the perception of the practicality of an electric vehicle, the Taycan will launch with an innovative inductive charging capability. A coil can be installed within your garage floor to access this capability. As the driver, all you have to do is park the car over the charging coil for power to be wirelessly transferred to the coil’s counterpart found in the underbody of the Porsche Taycan.
Striking Exterior Styling
When designers crafted the exterior style of the Taycan, every element was carefully constructed to be instantly recognizable as a Porsche. Signature qualities of sports cars were implemented on the Taycan, including a low-slung roofline which gives the vehicle its iconic appearance. Striking air intakes and outlets on the front, rear, and sides emphasize the body’s seamless flow-through design. Up front, dynamic matrix LED headlights with the Porsche signature four-point design float within the air intakes. For a confident stance and exceptional handling, boldly styled alloy wheels are found on the Taycan.
With the driver taking center stage of the action, every aspect of the interior of the Porsche Taycan was developed with a strong emphasis on ergonomics. With the use of a groundbreaking eye-tracking system, an assortment of camera sensors always know exactly which instrument the driver is looking at. A total of five OLED round instruments are vertically arranged on a free-standing panel and mirror the movements of the driver with what’s known as a parallax effect. Translating interior elements from the very first 911 into the Taycan, a broad holographic display can be activated with a simple wave of your hand. You can use Porsche Car Connect with Over the Air and Remote Services to monitor or charge the Taycan.
At this time, every indication points to a 2019 release for the Porsche Taycan. Stay in touch with Porsche of Ann Arbor for continued updates, news, and events surrounding the launch of the Porsche Taycan.
