Porsche Picks Taycan as Name for Its First Electric Vehicle
Jun 11, 2018, 00:46
Porsche debuted the Mission E conceptmore than two years ago, but when the electric sports vehicle goes into production, it will feature a different name.
The Porsche Taycan will be the automaker's first official battery-electric sedan. Porsche Chair Oliver Blume called it "strong and dependable; it's a vehicle that can consistently cover long distances and that epitomizes freedom". The company says the vehicle can hit 60 mph in "well under" 3.5 seconds and 124 mph miles per in less than 12 seconds. The good news is that the Taycan will also have a driving range around 300 miles, which will pit it directly against the Tesla Model S. Using a special fast-charging battery E Mission can be recharged to 80 percent in 15 minutes. A crossover SUV version, called the Mission E Cross Turismo, was revealed at the Geneva Motor Show earlier this year.
At Porsche, the vehicle names generally have a concrete connection with the corresponding model and its characteristics. With the lack of charging infrastructure, the chances of the Taycan coming to India anytime soon are nearly non-existent.
Tesla CEO Elon Musk's naming strategy is racier in a different way: He was shooting to have the Model Line up read S, E, X, Y, until Ford scuppered his "E". Porsche says that it won't happen here. This will enable 0-100km/h acceleration in "well under 3.5 seconds", Porsche says, with 0-200km/h coming up in under 12 seconds. The expected range is more than 500 km on the somewhat generous NEDC test cycle.
This version of the Taycan is expected to be the flagship model but Porsche has invested a further 500million Euros (£437million) into its electrification strategy to develop additional versions of the vehicle. By 2022, Porsche will invest 6 billion Euros in its electric vehicle programme with 500 million Euros being spent in the development of derivatives of the Taycan.
Power for the Taycan will come from two electric motors that will generate more than 600 horsepower and likely provide all-wheel drive.
