Porsche Confirms 600hp and 500km Range for 2019 Taycan EV



Porsche recently confirmed a few details for the upcoming Taycan, the production version of the Porsche Mission E. The Taycan is due to be released in 2019 and will be Porsche’s first attempt at a pure EV.

The Porsche Taycan is expected to sell around 20,000 units per year. It is expected to take from the 919 Hybrid project, using two permanently excited synchronous motors (PSM) and a permanently magnetized rotor. Together, the two motors are expected to generate over 600 hp and are fed by batteries that give 500 km of range.

Performance will be electrifying. 0 to 100 km/h in just 3.5 seconds with a 200 km/h sprint in under 12 seconds. The system is 800 volts, meaning that once the range is depleted, it will take just 15 minutes to charge another 400 km.

Sounds great! What will it cost? From the looks of it, I'm guessing not under a 6 figure sum?

Guessing 90k in euros. Full electric means no road taxes though, which is pretty neat. (A Ferrari costs €10k/year)
