Porsche Taycan is the production version of the Mission E

Porsche Taycan is the name for the production Mission E

Chris Jordan, head of public relations for Porsche Australia, confirmed the Taycan will be here in 2020. Using a special fast-charging battery E Mission can be recharged to 80 percent in 15 minutes. The new sedan promises to race from 0-100km/h in under 3.5 seconds, and hit 200km/h within 12 seconds. Arguably more important, the automaker points out, is that the Taycan will be able to do that over and over again.

Porsche has billed the Taycan as a track-capable EV, created to support multiple jump starts in quick succession without power loss due to battery overheating.

That, if you haven't been paying attention to EVs, is some direct snark at Tesla.

Previously, the manufacturer has released pictures of the build pre-production copies Taycan, where you can see individual elements of the model, for example, headlamps.

Power is only one part of the EV equation: range is the other.

Stay tuned for more updates on the Porsche Taycan. Between its two premium trims, the Model S has a maximum range of 335 miles and can accelerate from 0-60 mph in 2.5 seconds. That means the vehicle will be able to add as much as 100 km of range in as little as four minutes. We'll come back with a report from Zuffenhausen regarding Porsche's plans for the next decade.

Porsche Mission E Concept

STUTTGART, Germany -Porsche's first electric vehicle, which has been known as the Mission E during its development, will be called the Taycan (pronounced tie-con), when it goes on sale late next year. They'll be swapped out for regular side mirrors on the Taycan.

In terms of specs, we're still stuck with what Porsche's mentioned in the past. Porsche may well decide to follow suit in countries where that's permitted. "The special exhibition will be accompanied by interactive experiences, such as an augmented reality application for the Mission E. As visitors view the concept study, AR glasses display further information about the technology behind the Mission E".

Finally, Porsche's fancy new butt design language is a lock-in. About $612 million of the investment will be used to develop variants of the Mission E battery-powered sports vehicle, Automotive News reported in February.

Meaning "lively young horse", in a reference to the animal on the company's crest, the Taycan will become Porsche's first electric sports vehicle when it enters production next year. The electric sports auto is expected to go on sale at the end of 2019. Porsche will begin production of the Taycan later this year. And Taycan will arrive in 2019. Our own Tim Stevens took a spin in the Mission E Cross Turismo prototype recently, and even though it's not exactly the same vehicle, as you might expect, it's pretty swell.

Porsche said it's planning to spend €6 billion on electromobility by 2022. Today, it has announced that it's doubling that investment. Of the additional three billion euro, some 500 million euro is claimed to be used for the development of Taycan variants and derivatives.
