With over 70 years of creating performance cars powered by combustion engines behind them, Porsche have revealed their first ever fully-electric car with a spectacular world premiere.

Roughly translating to “soul of a spirited young horse”, the Porsche Taycan (pronounced tie-kann) promised to be a “true Porsche for the age of electric mobility”. With four doors and claiming to comfortably seat four people, the Taycan offers a unique package; promising the performance that you’d expect from a Porsche, combined with everyday usability.

Available in two different variants: the standard Taycan Turbo and the Taycan Turbo S, which is catered for those craving more performance, the standard Taycan Turbo model is capable of an impressive 0-62mph time of just 3.2 seconds, whilst the Turbo S can achieve this in just 2.8 seconds (making it quicker off the line than any Porsche 911), and both models will reach top speeds of over 160mph.

According to Porsche, the standard Taycan Turbo model can manage up to 279 miles on a single charge and when using a domestic 11kW charger, Porsche claims that the battery can completely charge from flat within nine hours.

As a high-performance Porsche model, the Taycan comes complete with technology designed to aid it in going as fast as it possibly can. Porsche’s 4D Chassis Control system integrates features such as adaptive air-suspension and torque vectoring system, ensuring the optimum steering behaviour, maximum agility and of course, stability. The technology doesn’t stop at aiding the car’s speed and handling, in fact passengers get a 10.9” touchscreen infotainment system.

Both the Taycan Turbo and the Taycan Turbo S are available to order now and customer car deliveries are expected to begin in January of 2020, plus Porsche have confirmed that a “less powerful” version of the Taycan will be expected to join the range later in the year.
