The first all-electric Porsche will be unveiled to the world on Wednesday, 4th September, at 3pm (CEST). The 2020 Porsche Taycan will have its live world premiere held simultaneously in three continents. The live event – to be held in Germany, China and Canada – will be presented by the former professional racing driver Mark Webber.
The Taycan has a top speed of over 250 km/h. It accelerates from 0–100 km/h in significantly less than 3.5 seconds and its lithium-ion battery has a gross capacity of around 90 kWh. The Taycan will be launched onto the market at the end of the year.
Talking earlier this year about testing of ther Taycan, Porsche’s vice president of the model line, Stefan Weckbach, explains: “After carrying out computer simulations and comprehensive bench tests early on, we have now reached the final phase of this demanding testing programme.”
He adds: “Before the Taycan is launched on the market at the end of the year, we will have covered approximately six million kilometres across the globe. We are already very happy with the current status of the vehicles. The Taycan is going to be a true Porsche.”
Porsche say, across the globe, there are already more than 20,000 serious prospective buyers for the Taycan.
