Porsche Traykan or brand’s first electric pickup

Porsche Traykan or brand’s first electric pickup

March 26, 2020 0 By autotimesnews

What would happen if an electric German Porsche Taycan car was presented in a pickup truck? It was this question that the author of this render tried to answer.

Electric trucks will soon become a wildly popular segment of the automotive market. The Rivian R1T, GMC Hummer, Lordstown Motors Endurance and, of course, the controversial Tesla Cybertruck – all of these machines will go on sale soon. So why does the German automaker not create something like this in order to compete in this part of the market?

 The Porsche Traykan is an electric truck built around the Taycan sedan. Render created by artist Adele Buras. The project is a promising electric pickup for the German brand, in the model line of which there have never been such models.

Obvious similarities, such as four-beam LED headlights, an elegant front panel and narrow taillights, can be seen with the Taycan sedan.

 The truck even visually has much in common with the large Cayenne crossover. But the rest of Traykan’s style is unique.

One piece of glass is both a windshield and a roof. There is an element in the form of a blade that connects the flowing elements of the front cab with a more angular base, the wheel wells have plastic linings, and if you look at the wheels themselves, they are not similar to what Porsche currently offers. The two-tone black and yellow trim, however, is very cool.

   Porsche will probably never create such an electric pickup. We already know that the Taycan Cross Turismo – a kind of station wagon – will appear next year.
