Fully Charged gets a first look at the Porsche Taycan EV
If there’s one car that’s got everyone buzzing these days it’s the Porsche Taycan. It’s a new battery electric vehicle from the German automaker, a production version of the Mission E electric concept we first saw in 2015. Deliveries of the car start for some lucky customers before the end of this year, and that means Porsche is starting to open up about the new car.
Ars has an in-depth look at the tech inside the Taycan in the works, but you’ll have to wait until September and the car’s official launch before we can share that with you. In the meantime though, a few more details have emerged about the car thanks to a new video from the Fully Charged crew.
Fully Charged got an exclusive invite to test Taycan, and they sent Jonny Smith to an airstrip near Stuttgart to check the car out. Smith is no stranger to fast EVs, having turned a 1970s city car into the world’s quickest EV. And after repeatedly demonstrating the Taycan’s launch control—which won’t be quite as quick as a Tesla P100D—he seems pretty impressed with the power delivery from the Porsche’s permanent synchronous motors.
