New Delhi: The first electrically powered sports car from Porsche, the Taycan, is expected to be showcased in September this year. The company had earlier said at the 2019 Geneva Motor show that 20,000 people have already registered to join a list of prospective buyers – and registration are already underway in Europe.
The Porsche Taycan will have a range of more than 500 kilometres. The new Porsche Taycan will sport two permanently excited synchronous electric motors that are capable of churning out max power of 600 bhp and will give a travel range of more than 500kms with its high voltage lithium-ion batteries.
Speed of Taycan
The two permanently excited synchronous motors, like those deployed in the Le Mans-winning 919 Hybrid, generate a permanent rotary motion that can be applied at any time without needing to be started. The vehicle will be able to accelerate from 0 to 100 kmph in considerably less than 3.5 seconds.
Detlev von Platen, Member of the Executive Board for Sales and Marketing at Porsche AG says “The overwhelming interest in the Taycan shows us that our customers and fans are just as excited about the first Porsche electric athlete as we are – and we’ve therefore increased our production capacities. The Taycan will be the most sporty and most technically advanced vehicle in its segment – a true Porsche.”
Porsche will foray into the electric car segment with the Taycan, and according to the company, by 2025 every second Porsche car sold will be with an electric motor. The Taycan will be the flagship electric product from Porsche and yes, the car will make it to India too by 2020.
