presented its first fully-electric sports car to the public with a spectacular
world premiere held simultaneously on three continents.
first models in the new series are the Taycan Turbo S and Taycan Turbo. They
are at the cutting edge of Porsche E-Performance and are among the most
powerful production models that the sports car manufacturer currently has in
its product range. Less powerful variants of these all-wheel drive vehicles
will follow this year. The first derivative to be added will be the Taycan
Cross Turismo at the end of next year. By 2022, Porsche will have invested more
than six billion euros in electromobility.
flagship Turbo S version of the Taycan can generate up to 761 hp (560 kW)
overboost power in combination with Launch Control, and the Taycan Turbo up to
680 hp (500 kW). The Taycan Turbo S accelerates from zero to 100 km/h in 2.8
seconds, while the Taycan Turbo completes this sprint in 3.2 seconds. The Turbo
S has a range of up to 412 kilometres, and the Turbo a range of up to 450
kilometres (according to WLTP in each case). The top speed of both
all-wheel-drive models is 260 km/h.
Taycan is the first production vehicle with a system voltage of 800 volts
instead of the usual 400 volts for electric cars. This is a particular
advantage for Taycan drivers on the road: in just over five minutes, the
battery can be recharged using direct current (DC) from the high-power charging
network for a range of up to 100 kilometres (according to WLTP). The charging
time for five to 80 percent SoC (state of charge) is 22.5 minutes for charging
under ideal conditions, and the maximum charging power (peak) is 270 kW. The
overall capacity of the Performance Battery Plus is 93.4 kWh. Taycan drivers
can comfortably charge their cars with up to eleven kW of alternating current
(AC) at home.
