Over the course of more than 80 years of history, Porsche has now become one of the most successful luxury car manufacturers in Europe, with a range of quality products. The first Porsche sports electric car named Taycan will be sold by the end of 2019. The four-door electric car with Porsche’s sporty appearance was first released to the public at the Frankfurt Motor Show in 2015 called Mission E.
Now this model will be officially named Taycan. According to Porsche, this name is derived from Turkey, which means “active young horse” similar to the logo of the automaker.
Thanks to two sets of electric motors that produce more than 600 horsepower, Taycan can accelerate to 96km / h in less than 3.5 seconds. If other electric cars can’t speed up many times because the battery is too hot, then Taycan, Porsche promises continuous acceleration is possible. The maximum speed that the car can reach up to 250km / h.
Porsche also added that, with just one full charge, Taycan could travel about 480 km. With 15 minutes of fast charging, the distance that Taycan can travel is 385km.
Porsche is now working with several partners to build 500 fast charging stations on national highways throughout the United States. In addition, Porsche also collaborated with other automobile manufacturers, including BMW and Ford, to build more charging points across Europe.
Porsche executives say that following Taycan, there will be many other electric cars in the future. Porsche now plans to invest $ 7 billion from now until 2022 for electric cars, doubling its original investment. Taycan sports electric car will be sold at the end of 2019, with the expected price of 80,000 USD to 90,000 USD.
