Porsche Gives Taycan Name To Road-Going Mission E Concept

Porsche Gives Taycan Name To Road-Going Mission E Concept

The tail-light strip across the rear is the new Porsche signature which stands out thanks to the diffused lighting. That's an huge improvement over current electric vehicles and this should help to make the model more appealing to consumers. Porsche claims a 0-60 time of "well under 3.5 seconds" and a range of more than 300 miles based on the New European Driving Cycle.

Porsche has announced its first all-electric model, previewed by the Mission E, will be known as the Taycan when it enters production next year.

The name, which is derived from Turkish, according to Porsche, and translates as "lively young horse", is a reference to the prancing steed at the center of Porsche's shield-shaped logo.

When the battery is depleted, it can be rapidly recharged in just a matter of minutes.

Two permanently activated synchronous motors (PSM) generating a system output of over 600 horsepower accelerate the electric sports vehicle to 60 miles per hour in well under 3.5 seconds and to 124 miles per hour (200 km/h) on the track in less than twelve seconds. Now, the Mission E has been given an official name: Taycan.

"Our new electric sports auto is strong and dependable; it's a vehicle that can consistently cover long distances and that epitomizes freedom", Porsche chief Oliver Blume said in a statement.

The situation resulted from the fact that Iran had stored billions in Omani rials, a currency that's notoriously hard to convert. Richard Blumenthal's (D-Conn.) warning that Iran would receive " an economic windfall " if Congress rejected the deal.

"At Porsche, the vehicle names generally have a concrete connection with the corresponding model and its characteristics", the automaker points out.

Porsche's original goal had been to spend three billion euro ($3.53bn) on electromobility by 2022.

Porsche has constructed a new factory specifically for electric vehicles at its Stuttgart campus.

At the Zuffenhausen HQ, Porsche has a new paint show and dedicated paint shop for the new auto.

The all-wheel-drive Taycan use two electric motors - one on each axle - drawing their power from lithium ion batteries mounted in the floor.
