Porsche unveiled the new Taycan, first purely electric Porsche. The series production is set to begin next year. The “Mission E” concept study, the name currently used to describe Porsche’s complete electric offering, will be now known as the Taycan.
Two permanently excited synchronous motors (PSM) with a system output of over 600 hp (440 kW) accelerate the electric sports car to 100 km/h in well under 3.5 seconds and to 200 km/h in under twelve seconds. This performance is in addition to a continuous power level that is unprecedented among electric vehicles: Multiple jump starts are possible in succession without loss of performance, and the vehicle’s maximum range is over 500 km in accordance with the NEDC.
