  • 39;Taycan' is Porsche’s new electric sedan

In February, Porsche's head of electric vehicles, Stefan Weckbach, said the Taycan will be able to sustain its performance better than the Model S.

"Our new electric sports auto is strong and dependable; it's a vehicle that can consistently cover long distances and that epitomizes freedom", Oliver Blume, Chairman of the Executive Board of Porsche AG, explains. We'll re-visit the Mission E's specs shortly, but for now you should know that Porsche's upcoming EV will not, in fact, be called the Mission E when it becomes available for purchase in 2019. The expected range is more than 500 km on the somewhat generous NEDC test cycle. Although the Taycan shares a similar silhouette to the Panamera saloon, the Tesla Model S rival will be more compact and cheaper; entry-level versions priced between £60,000 and £70,000 mean it will carry only a small premium over its main rival.

Porsche's first all-electric vehicle has been known so far as the Mission E, but the company made the announcement today that the production version of the vehicle will be called the "Taycan". With this system, the car's battery pack will take only 4 minutes to get charged up to the capacity required for a 100 km range.

"At Porsche, the vehicle names generally have a concrete connection with the corresponding model and its characteristics", the automaker points out. Porsche says that it won't happen here.

The future of mobility is another step closer: Series production of the first purely electric Porsche is set to begin next year.

The Taycan is now tested in prototype form and shouldn't be much different from the Mission E concept, at least performance-wise. There'll also be an outlay on ramping up production. It's also expanding an existing engine plant to build electric drivelines.

Safeguarding Porsche's cachet and healthy profit margins as the company makes huge investments in electric cars and new digital services is vital for parent Volkswagen AG.
