The Taycan will draw power from a 800V battery which can be juiced up for a range of 400km in just 15 minutes
Porsche announced the name of its first ever EV as the Taycan in June 2018. Now, the Stuttgart-based manufacturer has announced the full specs of the Mission E concept-based electric car. The carmaker had already revealed some details of the Mission E concept but now we exactly know what the Taycan will pack.
The two motors of the Taycan draw power from the floor-mounted 800V lithium-ion battery. This battery consists of some four hundred cells, which are connected both in series and parallel to offer optimal performance, claims Porsche. Each individual cell produces roughly 4 volts.
While the production model will be unveiled by 2019, the Taycan is expected to go sale internationally by 2020. Although Porsche has not specifically confirmed the Taycan for India, the carmaker has said that it would launch its first EV in India by 2020. So, we expect the electric sedan to come to India as well.
Porsche currently sells the Panamera Turbo S E-Hybrid in India and plans to launch the Cayenne E-Hybrid here by September 2018.
