During his rather long journey, the electric sedan averaged speeds from 194 to 215 km / h. The serial version of the model will be shown this fall.

Porsche decided to celebrate the opening of its test center in Italy, deciding to test the prototype of the Taycan all-electric sedan in a 24-hour endurance race. The former factory of the Italian brand Fiat, originally built in 1975, has over 20 test tracks.

Six Porsche test drivers took turns driving a sedan and drove a total of 3,225 kilometers.

This is a pretty significant day for an electric car that covered this distance by constantly charging your batteries. What is most remarkable about Taycan is that it is compatible with 800-volt charging stations. This means that the time required to recharge the battery is significantly reduced, and it takes only 15 minutes to charge to reach a range of 400 km. And if you fully charge the lithium-ion battery at 90 kWh, the car will be able to travel more than 804 km.

The prototype with its funny fake tailpipes was equipped with all-wheel drive – two electric motors with a total capacity of more than 600 hp. During the endurance run, the speed of the sedan ranged from 195 to 215 km / h on the track, which had a peak temperature of 54 degrees. Porsche confirms that the electric car will accelerate to 100 km / h in less than 3.5 seconds.

3,425 kilometers in Nardo is nothing compared to the number of kilometers that the Porsche Taycan electric sedan prototypes covered: more than 6 million kilometers reported.
