The Porsche brand continues to advance the automotive industry with the production of the first purely electric Porsche. Originally named the “Mission E” concept study, the Taycan is set to be produced this year.

 

The name of Porsche’s new vehicle holds a strong significance to the brand. Porsche is known for providing its vehicles with meaningful names that showcase their car’s best features, and the Taycan is no exception. With linguistic roots in the East, “Taycan” can be translated to “spirited young horse,” which is a reference to Porsche’s signature crest that has featured a leaping horse since 1952. The announcement of the name of Porsche’s first electric vehicle was an exciting part of the “70 years of sports cars” ceremony held by the company. According to Oliver Blume, Chairman of the Executive Board of Porsche, “Our new electric sports car is strong and dependable; it’s a vehicle that can consistently cover long distances and that epitomizes freedom.”

 

The Taycan exudes power unlike any other sports car. In addition to being purely electric, the Taycan will include two permanently excited synchronous motors with a system output of over 600 hp that provides the sports car with the ability to accelerate to 100km/h in under 3.5 seconds and to 200 km/h in under twelve seconds. Multiple jump starts are possible in succession without the loss of performance. The vehicle will also have a maximum range of over 500 km.

 

The production of the Porsche Taycan will not only provide the first electric Porsche to the public, but it will also support economic endeavors. The production of the Taycan will create 1,200 new jobs at the Porsche headquarters in Zuffenhausen alone. It will require the creation of its own factory complete with a new paint shop, assembly facility, and conveyor bridge. The production of the Porsche will provide six billion euros in eletromobility, as well as 500 million euros for the development of Taycan variants and derivatives. The Taycan will completely revolutionize the car industry both technologically and economically.

 

The Porsche Taycan will launch the Porsche brand into the future with the implementation of its new technology. Customers can look forward to the same quality they’ve come to expect from Porsche with advancements that support not only the environment but also the economy.
