Entering a new realm of the automotive world has to be done correctly or it will fail. That is why engineers at Porsche have had their first electric vehicle in testing for years. What began as the Mission E was a warning shot to the industry. Their plans for an 800-Volt charging network along with a 300-mile range are revolutionary, and they are about to become a reality. In a press release this morning, we’ve learned the Porsche Taycan is almost ready for launch.
Lithium Ion batteries have a narrow heat range for optimal performance. That is why the Taycan is being tested on ice in Scandinavia. Simultaneously, teams in Dubai and South Africa are performing the hot weather runs. Prototypes have seen action in over 30 countries, with temperatures ranging from -31 to 122 degrees Fahrenheit. Over 3.7 Million miles have included 1.2 Million of endurance runs around the clock. Over 100,000 tests of the charging system included all standard AC or DC protocols.
Over 20,000 deposits are already on the books, and each customer will reach 62 mph in under 3.5 seconds. The nominal range is 310 miles, and an 800-Volt charge adds 62 miles of range in 4 minutes. If you want to experience the best blend of gas and electric, the Porsche Panamera E Hybrid will blow your mind.
