The electric Porsche Taycan will be released in three versions: the initial Taycan, all-wheel drive Taycan 4s and the top-end Turbo prefix. In addition, from a representative of the brand in the North American market, it became known that the price of the car will be from 90 to 130 thousand dollars.

Porsche will use the Turbo designation characteristic of the ICE models to bring the electric car closer to traditional sports cars, and also to attract current customers to Taycan. According to rumors, the “turbo” version will receive a twin-engine installation with a capacity of 600 horsepower and will be able to accelerate to 100 kilometers per hour in 3.5 seconds, and up to 200 in 12 seconds.

Younger versions will be less powerful: the base Taycan – 400-horsepower, all-wheel drive Taycan 4s – 500-horsepower. In this case, all variants of electric vehicles will be equipped with a two-stage transmission and charging system with a voltage of 800 volts and a power of up to 350 kilowatts. Although now Porsche, together with BMW, is testing a 450-kilowatt terminal, which can provide an additional 100 kilometers in three minutes.

In addition to the Taycan, which Porsche engineers are testing on the virtual Nurburgring, an electric cross-station wagon based on the Mission E Cross Turismo prototype will appear in the German brand lineup. The product version of the machine will be assembled at the Porsche plant in Zuffenhausen.
