Porsche has finally launched the Taycan EV in India at a  price of ₹1.5 crores. With the kind of performance that the Taycan offers, it is easily the fastest EV that you can buy in India. It is also quicker than its distant cousin, the Audi RS E-Tron GT. Deliveries for the Taycan will start next year. Let’s take a look at the Taycan:

Exterior

The Taycan’s design is clean and had it not been for the wheels, it’s difficult to tell if it’s an electric car. From the front, it looks particularly wide and flat with highly contoured wings. The silhouette is shaped by the sporty roofline sloping down to the rear. The sculpted side sections are also characteristic and the pronounced shoulders of the wings result in a sharply emphasized rear, typical of the brand.

There are also innovative elements such as the glass-effect Porsche logo, which has been integrated into the light bar at the rear. With a Cd value from 0.22, the aerodynamically optimized basic shape makes a significant contribution to low energy consumption and thus a longer range.

Interior

Inside, the cockpit follows a completely new architecture. The free-standing, curved instrument cluster forms the highest point on the dashboard. A central, 10.9-inch infotainment display and an optional passenger display are combined to form an integrated glass band in a black-panel look. The number of classic hardware controls such as switches and buttons has been greatly reduced.

Instead, control is intelligent and intuitive – using touch operation or the voice control function, which responds to the command “Hey Porsche”. With the Taycan, Porsche offers an entirely leather-free interior for the first time. Interiors made from innovative recycled materials underscore the sustainable concept of the electric sports car. Recesses in the battery in the rear footwell – ensure sitting comfort in the rear and allow the low vehicle height typical of sports cars. Two luggage compartments are available: the front compartment has a capacity of 81 liters and the rear 366 liters.

Powertrain

Since the Taycan is a performance vehicle, the numbers do justify its credentials. The flagship Turbo S version of the Taycan can generate up to 761 hp overboost power in combination with Launch Control, and the Taycan Turbo up to 680 hp. The Taycan Turbo S accelerates from zero to 100 km/h in 2.8 seconds, while the Taycan Turbo completes this sprint in 3.2 seconds. The Turbo S has a range of up to 412 kilometers, and the Turbo has a range of up to 450 kilometers. The top speed of both all-wheel-drive models is limited to 260 km/h.
