The Taycan is ready for the future, thanks to its innovative total concept. It is characterised by the features that have always been decisive for any Porsche: pure emotion and maximum driving pleasure.
Porsche Taycan: CO2 emissions combined 0 (g/km); Electricity consumption combined 28,0 (kWh/100km); CO2 emissions from the fuel and / or the power supply 19.0 (g/km); gasoline equivalent 2.9 (l/100km); Efficiency category: A*

A battery that stores goosebumps.
The Taycan carries a legacy that is reflected by performance. The latest drive technology ensures that its performance can be repeatedly reproduced: two permanent-magnet synchronous motors (PSMs) catapult the Taycan Turbo S with up to 560kW (761PS) overboost with Launch Control from 0–100km/h in 2.8 seconds.
A cable with the power to fuel dreams.
The Porsche soul stands for performance. In every respect. As demonstrated by the Taycan, even when charging: its 800-volt architecture produces charge power of up to 270kW. In five minutes, the vehicle can be charged to enable a range of up to 100km (WLTP) under optimum conditions¹ and is always ready for what its driver is thinking about the whole day: driving.
¹ Optimum conditions: CCS fast-charging pedestal with >270kW, >850V, battery temperature 30°C to 35°C and initial charge status 5%.
A display that portrays emotions.
The Porsche Advanced Cockpit in the Taycan is characterised by pioneering technologies and offers up to four displays. The fully digital curved display is the driver’s main focus. But what really distinguishes the Taycan is the feeling behind the wheel: the familiarity of a Porsche coupled with the irresistible beating of your heart.
Puristic, expressive, timeless. Three attributes that describe every Porsche – and especially this one, which takes our DNA into a new automotive era.
Mechanical buttons have been almost entirely replaced by digital ones. Making the interior look extremely tidy. The same principle of tidiness also applies to the displays, of which there are up to four – intuitive, distraction-free and easy to use.
16.8-inch curved display
The arrangement is also driver-focused, as is typical of Porsche: the instrument cluster is the centre of attention, consisting of a 16.8-inch curved display and surrounded by control panels with Direct Touch Control for selecting lighting and chassis functions.
Your central control unit for audio, navigation and communication: redesigned Porsche Communication Management (PCM) including online navigation. The PCM display on the 10.9-inch central display on the dashboard can be individually configured, allowing direct access to the most important functions.
8.4-inch centre console control panel
This provides access to navigation, media, telephone, settings and Apple CarPlay via a menu bar which can be disabled. The luggage compartment and charging flaps can also be opened and closed from here. The charging display and battery charge status can also be viewed.
The key to designing an outstanding drivetrain was the systematic continuation of the purpose-design approach: no compromises with the perfect interaction of drive components.**
Permanent Magnet Synchronous Motors
Two Permanent Magnet Synchronous Motors are installed in the Taycan Turbo and Taycan Turbo S – one on each axle – and the performance battery is integrated deep into the underbody. The effect: superior driving dynamics and all-wheel drive that can be optimally adjusted to the fluctuation between efficiency and dynamics in the various driving modes.
Switching two-speed transmission
The concept of the permanent magnet synchronous motor provides high power density, high continuous output and high efficiency in a compact design. A newly developed, automatically switching two-speed transmission on the rear axle ensures noticeably improved dynamics.
The interaction of the drive components produces impressive performance figures, both technically and emotionally: with up to 560kW (761PS) overboost is activated with Launch Control, both machines accelerate the Taycan Turbo S from a standstill to 100km/h in 2.8 seconds. And this can be repeatedly reproduced: consecutive acceleration is possible, up to a top speed of 260km/h.
This is due to the performance battery, among other things, which is based on 800-volt technology instead of the usual 400 volts. The effect: improved charging and drive performance with smaller cable cross-sections, which has a positive impact on the overall weight.
The Taycan is fitted with the Porsche Active Aerodynamics system, consisting of an adaptive rear spoiler and adjustable cool air intakes, specifically for dynamic driving. Depending on the situation, the rear spoiler extends in three stages: at 90km/h, 160km/h and 200km/h, it demonstrates where an electric vehicle becomes a sports car and a sports car becomes a Porsche.
Thanks to the Porsche Surface Coated Brake (PSCB), your Taycan decelerates with optimised responsiveness. Or choose the extremely lightweight Porsche Ceramic Composite Brake (PCCB) – standard on the Taycan Turbo S. Our highperformance brake has its origins in motorsport and enables short braking distances in even the toughest conditions.
Porsche Recuperation Management (PRM) works innovatively and can regenerate up to 90% of braking energy. This means, during active braking, recuperation is enabled first and the mechanical brake is only engaged when stronger braking is required – intelligently controlled by a braking system that is capable of blending. With an outstanding recuperation output of up to 265kW, energy can be fed back into the battery in the Taycan. Or to be more precise: during sporty, everyday driving, for example, you will achieve up to a third of your range exclusively from recuperation. With recuperation braking from 200km/h to 0, electrical energy can be recovered for a range of up to 4km.
In terms of charging time and range, the Taycan also demonstrates what makes a genuine Porsche. Because we believe that a sports car should be ready to set off at all times, we do our utmost to facilitate simple charging that is integrated into everyday life.
Our charging concept starts with the vehicle: the Performance Battery Plus with the latest lithium-ion technology is based on 800-volt architecture and, therefore, on a similar system to our endurance race car, the 919 Hybrid. Higher voltage means not only perceptibly more power and less weight, thanks to reduced cable size, but above all shorter charging times.
Charging at home and on the road
Because we not only think about the product, but also about the environment in which it is used, Porsche is involved in the development of a nationwide charging infrastructure: both with its own solutions and together with partners – along motorways, for example.
For an initial assessment of your personal charging options, we recommend our charging pre-check. Your Porsche Centre will be happy to answer any questions about your results.
Driving a Porsche Taycan is a unique experience. And to make it even more personal, we offer an array of innovative services with Porsche Connect. For example, you can access all relevant information for your vehicle, your surroundings, or the entire world in real time. Using your voice or by smartphone, you can also control many features inside and outside of your Porsche. A real digital co-pilot, you could say.
The Taycan comes with Apple Music built-in seamlessly. Simply tap on Apple Music on the Taycan touchscreen display to stream 50 million songs ad-free and access playlists for any mood. You can even create your own custom radio station from any song played while you drive. And new owners get up to 6 months free.
An intelligent sports car speeds up your life - even digitally. With a host of features such as the read-aloud function to keep you informed of all the latest news from all over the world. The services from Porsche Connect help you get more out of every day.
