The day has come that many expected. We already knew what the first one was like Electric porsche, but the highly anticipated has been officially presented Porsche Taycan. Porsche's new vehicle, its first electric car, has already been officially unveiled.
There is no mystery in the car, since as we say Porsche had already revealed almost every detail; We could even see it in an extensive video accelerating from 0 to 200 in a clear confrontation with Tesla. But now, it has become completely official.
Porsche thus pulls chest presenting what is today its first 100% electric car. How could it be otherwise, Porsche has highlighted its innovations, which come under the arm with this new step of the car firm.
The first electric Porsche no longer has any mystery: "the Porsche Taycan are born"
Porsche has put everything in its hand to show the importance of the birth of the Porsche Taycan; He has shown in a spectacular presentation the assembly process that they have carried out with the Porsche Taycan in their different factories. In addition, they have reviewed the history of Porsche, how they have reached the Taycan and have taken off the chest boasting to use renewable energy in the factories where they have manufactured the car.
Some relevant data about the presentation of its new sports cars is Porsche's millionaire investment to give life to these electric companies: nothing more, nothing less than 1 billion dollars In its development. This obviously entails great features of a supercar of this caliber.
The Taycan does not come in a single model: it comes in 2 very differentiated variants, the Porsche Taycan Turbo and Turbo S. The prices are exorbitant but nothing strange in the case of Porsche; while the Turbo starts in the 155,648 euros Starting, the Turbo S ascends to 189,528 euros according to the Porsche website. Deliveries will begin to be made from next year,
The standard Taycan Turbo has an acceleration from 0 to 100 in 2.8 seconds, while the Turbo S improves that figure by 0.2 seconds. If we think of 0 to 200, the Porsche Taycan Turbo takes "only" 9.8 seconds. Both models have full traction and will be accompanied by a Cross Tourism crossover that Porsche has shown conceptually and versions with reduced power with rear-wheel drive.
Regarding autonomy, Porsche has spoken that in the European version we will see between 381 and 450 kilometers with a full load. The Taycan will enjoy a double electric motor that will generate the equivalent of 616 horsepower, but they won't stay there; the standard Turbo will reach 670 with a special mode called "launch control" and the Turbo S will rise to 750.
For both models, the front axle motor has a power between 175 or 190 kW (235 or 255 hp) and 300 or 400 Nm, and the rear axle engine only generates 335 kW (450 hp) on both models and 610 Nm of torque. The front has a gear and the rear two and together reach a potentia up to 500 kW (670 hp) and 850 Nm of torque or 560 kW (750 hp) and 1,050 Nm.
This energy will come from a battery pack of lithium ions 93 kWh. Focusing on fast loading, an especially important issue for Porsche for the presentation, we are talking about a technology 800 volts which, on paper, can charge battery packs from 5% to 80% in just under 25 minutes (connecting, yes, to 270 kW chargers). Fortunately, Porsche has announced that it will build fast-charging stations in its dealerships capable of charging 350kW.
Other details to keep in mind is, as we saw a while ago, the interior that will have touch screens everywhere. Porsche offers the Taycan as supercars without giving up anything in clear nod to Tesla and his speed limitation on some of his vehicles. In addition, the Porsche Taycan will be the first car with an integrated app for Apple Music
The thing gets even more interesting, since Porsche has promised to offer more versions of the Taycan but more "economic", that lower of the 100,000 dollars. This does not mean that it is automatically the favorite electric of the masses; It is still a luxury car that will have to compete in that segment with Tesla, the pioneer in the sector.
