Porsche gives Taycan name to road-going Mission E Concept

Mission E: Porsche names its first fully electric sports car the Taycan

Porsche AG announced earlier this year that by 2022 the sports auto manufacturer will invest more than 6 billion euros in electromobility, focusing on both plug-in hybrids and purely electric vehicles.

On that note, Porsche is aiming for a range of over 500km between charges, and there are some serious performance claims too.

Powering the vehicle is two permanently excited synchronous motors with a total system output of over 600bhp.

The name Macan is derived from the Indonesian word for tiger, with connotations of suppleness, power, fascination and dynamics.

Elsewhere, the sports auto maker has committed to a €6 billion (£5.3 billion) investment in electromobility - including the Taycan and future variants' development, electrification of its current cars, expanding production sites as well as charging infrastructure.

To prepare for the arrival of the Porsche Taycan, Porsche has set aside a dedicated assembly for the EV model at the Stuttgart-Zuddenhausen headquarters.

In other Porsche news, the company has also revealed a new concept in honour of its 70th anniversary.

Production of the Taycan is creating around 1,200 new jobs in Zuffenhausen alone.

The central location of the batteries and twin-motor set-up will also give the car's technical architecture a better front-rear weight balance than combustion-engined cars, potentially allowing Porsche's engineers to soften the car's anti-roll bars to aid ride without hindering handling.

2019 Porsche Taycan: What does it mean for auto buyers?

Porsche says the bodywork of this concept is drawn from that of the 911 Carrera 4 Cabriolet, though carbon fibre and a mix of silver and white paint, plus 1950s styling brings together old and new. PCNA employs over 300 people who provide parts, service, marketing, and training for 189 dealers. Now Porsche has announced the release of a new Porsche Charging Service app that will help owners find charging stations faster.

Expected to be on the market next year, Taycan is rated at 600 horsepower. He has managed and overseen start ups in Mining, Shipping, Technology and Financial Services.
