Taycan: Porsche's first all-electric car

Recently at the Porsche’s 70th-anniversary celebration, Chief Executive, Oliver Blume announced that the production version of the Porsche’s all-electric concept vehicle, Mission E will be named as Taycan (pronounced tie-con) when it goes on sale late next year.

Porsche Taycan

The Taycan will be a CUV - Crossover SUV based on Porsche's all-electric concept sports car Mission E. The name “Taycan” which is derived from Turkish means “lively young horse” and is an appropriate title for the latest model in the Porsche’s lineup.

Porsche, the Stuttgart based company had been using Mission E as the codename for its all-electric concept sports car, which was first unveiled at the Frankfurt Motor Show back in 2015. But at the Geneva Motor Show held earlier this year, a crossover SUV version of Mission E, called the Mission E Cross Turismo was revealed.

Set to be released in 2019, the Taycan looks and feels like a real Porsche. It has two electric motors (one at the front and one at the rear), which give it more than 600 horsepower. Taycan can go from 0 to 100 km/h in less than 3.5 seconds and can easily hit a top speed of 250 km/h. Taycan has a range of more than 300 kilometers in a single charge.

According to Porsche, the Taycan’s fast charging system might be the game-changing feature for the company. Taycan's charging system is an 800-volt system that can charge the car up to 80% in only about 15 minutes.

Apart from production of the vehicle, the Porsche is planning to set-up thousands of charging stations all across Europe and the United States.
