The World Premiere of the Porsche Taycan
The first fully-electric Porsche model, the Porsche Taycan, was officially premiered during the 2019 Frankfurt Motor Show on September 12th. Car enthusiasts were taken on an in depth tour of the Taycan and all of it’s specifications. The car boasts of a consistently powerful electric battery, a four-door fastback design, and outstanding performance that will change the future of electric vehicles. The entire premiere was recorded live and published online. Let’s take a look at some of the highlights!
Visionary Design Inside and Out
The Porsche Taycan is truly one-of-a-kind. The design features are true to Porsche styling, like the sloping nose and the 911-like body lines. However, the Taycan has features of its own like four-point LED headlamps, vertical air intakes for efficient airflow through the body, and a full width LED taillights. The Taycan has available exterior colors, interior colors, and wheels that are exclusive to the Taycan. There was not a single design feature left out on the Taycan.
The interior of the Taycan is designed around the driver. The new freestanding, fully digital driver display is an entirely new design for Porsche. The dashboard and control center are minimalistic in design but futuristic in functionality. The dash features two seamlessly connected touchscreen displays, one for the driver and one for the passenger. The climate controls are displayed on an additional touchscreen. Available safety and driver assist features include ParkAssist, Porsche InnoDrive Adaptive Cruise Control, Night Visit Assist, Lane Change Assist, and more.
The New Standard for Performance
Traditionally, electric cars are compact, practical, and not performance driven. The new Porsche Taycan is far from that traditional stereotype. The 2020 Porsche Taycan comes in the Taycan Turbo and Taycan Turbo S. The Taycan Turbo makes the 616 horsepower (460 kW) and can do 0 to 60 mph in 3 seconds flat. The Taycan Turbo S comes with up to 750 horsepower (and is capable of going 0 to 60 mph in 2.6 seconds.
The electric engine can be charged at home from 0% to 100% in 10.5 hours. If you are at charging station with direct current or have a direct current setup at home, you can charge the Taycan from 5% to 80% in just 22.5 minutes using a 270-kilowatt direct current quick charger. The range of the Taycan is about 300 miles on a single charge. These performance and range numbers are not typical of today’s electric vehicles. The Porsche Taycan is setting a new standard for better electric vehicle performance. For more information about the Taycan, watch the live recorded world premiere below!
