Frankfurt Motor Show 2019: Porsche Taycan has a Turbo in its name, not in powertrain

Frankfurt Motor Show 2019: Porsche Taycan has a Turbo in its name, not in powertrain

-        First-ever pure electric Porsche.

-        Powered by an electric motor capable of 0-100kmph in 2.8 seconds. 

After a long wait and endless speculation, Porsche has publicly debuted the all-new Taycan. The first-ever electric Porsche isn’t just a Panamera with electric motors but an electric 911 with four doors. 

Available in two variants at the moment – the Turbo and Turbo S – the Taycan is powered by a pair of electric motors (placed on each axle) producing a combined output of 616 horsepower. But Porsche has provided the Taycan with something called as ‘Overboost Power’ which bumps the output up to 500kW (around 680 horsepower) in Turbo and 560kW (around 760 horsepower) in Turbo S. The former can hit 0-100kmph in 3 seconds, while the latter is capable of doing the same acceleration in mere 2.8 seconds. 

Powering the motors is a high-voltage lithium-ion battery pack with a capacity of 93.4kWh. Porsche claims a range of 280 miles (412km) in Turbo and around 256 miles (approx. 340km) in Turbo S under WLTP cycle. The 800-volt architecture allows quick charging from five to 80 per cent in around 22 minutes, according to the German carmaker. In true Porsche fashion, the Taycan is fitted with active air suspension (PASM), chassis control (PDCC), rear-axle steering, torque vectoring (PTV Plus) and many other hardware and software to make it precise yet accessible. 

After showcasing the Taycan at the 2019 Frankfurt Motor Show, Porsche has commenced the production of the electric sedan at a new factory in Zuffenhausen. As is the custom, more affordable models of the Taycan are also expected to arrive in due course of time.
