    Default Porsche Taycan

    Now that the name has been officially announced it's time for its own dedicated thread. The first all-electric Porsche, the Taycan.

    Previously known as the Porsche Mission E Concept:

    Going into production next year.

    The name is said to translate loosely as "lively, young horse" from a Eurasian dialect- a nod to the firm's crest, which has featured a leaping horse since 1952.


    This name’s Taycan: Porsche names electric sedan

    Porsche has now given an official name to its upcoming electric sedan that has until now been known as the ‘Mission E’.

    The Tesla-chasing electric sedan will be named Taycan, according to Porsche, and it’s set to go into production next year.

    The name essentially means “lively young horse”, referencing the image in Porsche’s own crest and Porsche board chairman Oliver Blume explains it like this:

    “Our new electric sports car is strong and dependable; it’s a vehicle that can consistently cover long distances and that epitomises freedom.”

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

    Porsche reckons the car’s two electric motors will produce a system output of over 447kW, and accelerate the sedan from zero to 100km/h in under 3.5 seconds.

    The Taycan is just one part of Porsche’s future electrification strategy, to which it is investing over 6 billion euros (around R92bn) between now and 2022. This also includes the creation of hybrid and electric versions of existing products in the Porsche portfolio.

    New Electric Porsche Taycan Coming

    Porsche is developing its first fully electric vehicle and it’s based on the Mission E Concept. The production version is expected to make its debut in 2019 and will be called the Taycan, meaning "lively, young horse".

    The announcement of the new electric Porsche Taycan follows the Stuttgart-based firm's 70th-anniversary celebrations and in South Africa, Porsche lovers from across the country descended on Kyalami Grand Prix Circuit to celebrate the milestone this past weekend. Porsche marked the occasion with the reveal of the 378 kW, 911 Speedster Concept which pays homage to the 1948 356 ‘No. 1’ Roadster.

    Taycan in the making

    The Tesla-rivalling Taycan is currently in development and if Porsche’s history is anything to go by, it’s destined to be a special electric car.

    The new electric sedan will share design cues with the 2015 Mission E Concept and the range-topping Taycan is expected to offer in the region of 447 kW from its electric motors while the base model will have at least 300 kW. The sprint from zero to 100 kph will take less than 3.5 seconds and the Taycan will have a range of about 500km on a single charge using an 800-volt charger that can recharge 80% in just 15 minutes.

    The Taycan will be built at Porsche’s Stuttgart manufacturing facility. Official images of the Taycan have yet to be revealed but we will keep you updated as soon as more information becomes available.

    Porsche tells us how to say ‘Taycan’, promises it has soul

    Porsche recently announced that its first pure-electric vehicle, based on the Mission E concept, would be called the “Taycan”. But anyone not actually at the “70 years of sports cars” ceremony in Stuttgart where the name was revealed may be wondering exactly how to pronounce it.

    Well, wonder no more. The Stuttgart-based automaker has released a short promotional video, which features both early and current models in the brand’s line-up, as well as glimpses of the new Taycan (with an example of how to pronounce it).

    In the clip, the automaker also promises that the Taycan will retain the “soul” of all the Porsche-badged models that preceded it.

    The new Taycan is expected to feature two permanently excited synchronous motors with a system output of more than 440 kW, resulting in a claimed zero to 100 km/h time of “well under 3,5 seconds” (the 200 km/h mark is expected to be breached in under twelve seconds). Maximum range? More than 500 km, Porsche claims.

    The word “Taycan” can be roughly translated as “lively young horse”, a reference the imagery at the very heart of the Porsche crest. Watch the video below to learn how to pronounce the new moniker (hint: it doesn’t sound like “taken”)…
