The Porche Taycan is the first-ever electric vehicle from Porsche which is based on the Mission E concept. This is one of the many electric cars which will mark its debut in India under the Skoda Auto Volkswagen India Pvt. Ltd. The vehicle will be produced at the new factory in Zuffenhausen and it will be introduced in Indi via the CBU route when it arrives later this year.
Mechanically, the Taycan is powered by a high-voltage lithium-ion battery pack with a capacity of 93.4kWh. Porsche claims a range of 280 miles (412km) in Turbo and around 256 miles (approx. 340km) in Turbo S under WLTP cycle. The 800-volt architecture allows quick charging from 5 to 80 per cent in around 22 minutes. In true Porsche fashion, the Taycan is fitted with active air suspension (PASM), chassis Control (PDCC), rear-axle steering, torque vectoring (PTV Plus) and much other hardware and software to make it precise yet accessible. There’s also an affordable trim with 390kW (523bhp) and a range of 250km from 79.2kWh battery pack.
