Porsche Taycan to go into production in September

Porsche Taycan to go into production in September

Porsche's first electric vehicle - will debut in production guise in September, with more than 20,000 orders before its starts. Harbinger Porsche Taycan was a concept electric auto, Porsche E Mission, and the company needed four years to prepare it for serial production.

To meet strong demand and cut waiting times, Porsche is already taking the necessary measures to boost series production even before actually starting it.

The Porsche Taycan will be only presented in September and is scheduled for launch shortly after.

Despite not seeing the road-going model yet, more than 20,000 people have already lined up to claim one by placing a down payment (of €2,500 in Europe).

In a statement earlier today, Porsche's Detlev von Platen - the company's chief of sales and marketing - said the following: 'The overwhelming interest in the Taycan shows us that our customers and fans are just as excited about the first Porsche electric athlete as we are. Porsche has said that should cut the 0-60 miles per hour time to under 3.5 seconds, but hasn't given a specific figure.

Porsche is increasing production of its upcoming Taycan electric vehicle due to high demand, the automaker said on Friday. In the interview, he also reaffirmed that interest is well above what was initially expected and more so before anybody has seen the electric vehicle.

The Taycan will compete against Tesla's Model S sedan.

So far there is still a question mark about the battery capacity, with rumours circulating at the end of January that the series Porsche Taycan will have a power pack holding about 90 kWh and a 22 kW charger for AC charging on board.
