For its 70th birthday, the Stuttgart-based company, introduced the Taycan, the first ever full electric Porsche.
The car will be powered by two PSM permanently excited synchronous electric motors, capable of delivering a maximum power of 600 hp. It has projected performances of 0-100 km/h in 3.5 seconds and 0-200 in less than 12 seconds. Maximum speed will be limited to 250 km/h. Its autonomy range will be over 500 km and, Zuffenhausen claims, the battery is charged to 80% in just 15 minutes.
From now to 2022, Porsche will invest six billion dollars – twice of the originally planned amount – on the production of Taycan electrified variants, on the update of the production lines and on the installation of infrastructures dedicated to re-charging and smart mobility. Taycan’s development will create 1200 new jobs.
