2020 Porsche Taycan Proves High-Performance Reliability
Porsche is one of the world leaders in innovative sports cars. The new 2020 Porsche Taycan is the automaker’s response to the growing need and demand for electric vehicles. There is no better company to build a fully electric sports car than the one with a tradition of reliable performance balanced with stable handling and interior comfort. The fully electric Porsche Taycan brings that stability along with reliable and repeatable high performance, and with no gasoline.
Earning an A+ in the Launch Test
In order to test the reliability of the Taycan’s performance, Porsche has done countless tests and driven thousands of miles. One of the most recent tests was a Sprint Challenge where the Taycan was driven from 0 to 200 kilometers per hour (about 125 mph) 26 times in succession. Porsche partnered with the “Fully Charged” automotive blog and YouTube Channel to document the tests.
The Sprint Challenge was performed at the Lahr airport, a former French and Canadian military airfield located a few hours outside of Stuttgart, Germany. Driver Jonny Smith tested the ability of the newest fully electric Porsche to accelerate over and over again. The Taycan performance was exceptionally consistent with average acceleration times just under 10 seconds, and the difference between the fastest and the slowest attempts was just 0.8 seconds.
To be capable of repeatedly pulling the power needed for this scale of launch control acceleration from an electric car power pack is a testimony to the engineering behind the new Porsche Taycan. With the new Taycan, Porsche engineers sought to design a vehicle that balanced repeatable high performance with extended range. The Taycan uses innovative motor and drivetrain features to achieve that goal, making it one of the most innovative and one of the best performing electric vehicles on the market today.
Performance Better Than Most Gas Vehicles
In the past, electric cars were limited in their range, heavy with battery packs and under-powered. Porsche has changed all of that with the new 2020 Porsche Taycan. Porsche says that the new 2020 Taycan will have a range of 300 miles per charge with all-wheel drive. The Taycan comes with twin electric motors based at the front and rear axles that will make the equivalent of 600 hp and be capable of doing 0 to 60 mph in just less than 3.5 seconds. The top speed of the Taycan is said to be about 155 mph. The Porsche Taycan has proven that electric vehicles can also be high-performance sports cars.
