About Porsche Taycan
GENERALThe Porsche Mission E Cross Turismo previewed the Taycan Cross Turismo, and was presented at the 2018 Geneva Motor Show. The design language of the Mission E Cross Turismo more closely resembles the Taycan than the Mission E. It combined the fully electric Mission E J1-platform with a 5-door estate body similar to the Panamera Sport Turismo, raised suspension, and off-road tyres and cladding to form a crossover utility vehicle. Porsche Chief designer Michael Mauer said the concept "shows possibilities of the future lineup." On October 18, 2018, the Supervisory Board of Porsche AG approved series production of the production-ready Porsche Taycan Cross Turismo.E-Performance, Porsche style. Integrated in a harmonious overall concept. Porsche Taycan sets the stage for tomorrow. With its design and its technology, it provides answers to the question of the sports car of the future.
DESIGN Compact electric motors, no combustion engine, no exhaust system, no transmission tunnel. Plenty of opportunities to question and rethink previous forms. Result: a flow-through body, totally geared towards performance.
EXTERIOR The fast roofline, together with the side window line in typical Porsche style, render Taycan undeniably Porsche in profile. Counter-opening doors provide an unimpaired view of a monocoque-like structure and allow easy entry.
INTERIOR The absence of a transmission tunnel opens up cabin space and imparts a lighter, more generously proportioned ambient feeling. The four individual seats are inspired by bucket-type racing seats, thus saving weight and giving all passengers the appropriate lateral support to match the driving dynamics of the car.
CHARGINGThe system voltage: 800V. Uncommon. 400V would be common. But what’s common about a Porsche? With Porsche Turbo Charging, charging with 800V at DC charging stations is considerably faster than usual – 80% of the maximum charge level in less than 15 minutes.
