A new variant of Porsche’s electric sports car with rear-wheel-drive and all the Taycan attributes is now on sale in the United States. Simply called the Taycan, the new model joins the Taycan 4S, Taycan Turbo, and Taycan Turbo S.
The Taycan has the same rear power unit and battery architecture as the Taycan 4S, and uses a permanent magnet synchronous electric motor with a rotor diameter of 245 mm and length of 130 mm, as well as a 600-amp pulse inverter. The new model benefits from a two-speed transaxle to ensure seamless acceleration, with efficient highway cruising.
Two battery configurations are available. The Performance Battery features a gross capacity of 79.2 kWh and can charge at up to 225 kW. The larger Performance Battery Plus weighs approximately 170 pounds more, features a gross capacity of 93.4 kWh and can charge at up to 270 kW. Both take just 22.5 minutes to charge from 5% to 80% when the appropriate battery state of charge and temperature are met, and the car is connected to a compatible high-speed DC fast charger.
