EV spotlight – Porsche Taycan

What are some of the highlights?                                                                                        

Range

Even long distance destinations are within easy reach for the Taycan. A range of up to 301 miles is achievable due to the performance battery that the car comes with… reducing the need to stop and charge often, allowing long distance travel to be effortless.

Porsche advanced cockpit

The interior of the Taycan leaves a lasting impression. The cockpit offers up to four displays and is distinguished by pioneering technologies. The 16.8 inch digital curved display is the drivers main focus, surrounded by control panels with direct touch control for chassis functions and lighting.

In addition, there is a centre console control panel which provides the access to the media settings, telephone, navigation and Apple Carplay. Charging flaps and boots can also be opened and closed from this point.

Power

This model offers two battery options; the standard performance battery delivers nominal power of 240kw and up to 300kw with launch control known as ‘over-boost mode’, this is fitted as standard and has a gross capacity of 79.2kWh. Whereas the optional performance battery plus will deliver nominal power of 280kW and up to 350KW, which has a gross capacity of 93.4kWh but this battery is an add on option.
