The Taycan will compete against Tesla's Model Ssedan. The closest rival will be the Tesla Model S P100D, although, being a Porsche, driving dynamics will be much higher in its set of priorities.
Porsche say you won't need to spend half an hour "conditioning" the Taycan to get that performance and, as long as you have juice to play with, the Taycan will keep on delivering its power. The Taycan will be powered by twin electric motors with a system performance of more than 440 kW, and can accelerate to 100 km in "considerably less than three seconds". Range will reportedly be over 500km under the NEDC testing scheme, although we're holding our breath to hear how that range looks under WLTP. The existing engine plant is being expanded to manufacture electric drives and the body shop will also be developed.
The Taycan is the start of a broader electrification strategy at Porsche.
Porsche plans to invest more than six billion euro in electromobility by 2022, doubling the expenditure that the company had originally planned.
