Recently, Porsche has confirmed its first pure electric car, which was known previously as Mission E and now, it will be called as Taycan. However, its technical specs remained a mystery to many until now.
Porsche released technical specs for the car production because it will be on sale next year and the good news about it is that they match the specs closely to the original concept of Mission E from year 2015. Porsche Taycan will use 2 permanent synchronous motors like the ones found in Le Mans-winning 919 Hybrid with one for front axle and the other is the one driving rear wheels, which generates a combined output of over 600hp.
Such 2 electric motors generate permanent rotary motion, which may be applied any time without the need to be started. Many have opted for excited synchronous motor in Taycan, according to the drive unit project leader named Heiko Mayer. He also added that they combine high energy density with maximum efficiency and strong sustained performance. Lithium-ion batteries that are high voltage will provide about 310 miles even if the testing cycle in which its range was based has not been specified.
Porsche Taycan will also deliver a performance level that is almost the same with the brand. The car manufacturer claims 0 to 62mph will take well under 3.5 seconds while 124 mph would take less than twelve seconds from the standstill. Porsche estimated that they will ship about 20,000 units every year.
