First Porsche Taycan Deliveries Expected At The End Of 2019

We now know a little bit more about the upcoming Porsche Taycan including planned release date and charging capacity.


The Porsche Taycan EV is getting closer. A few outlets have already had the chance to get behind the wheel of the new Taycan and sample what Porsche’s first fully electric vehicle has to offer. We learned a little bit more about the Porsche Taycan release date and impressive charging setup.

British publication Autocar published a detailed look at the Taycan this morning after testing the EV in northern Sweden recently.

According to Autocar, Porsche confirmed there would be two power outputs initially for the Taycan. The more powerful version will apparently have over 600 horsepower with a second model having about 100 horsepower less. It also appears that two other Taycan models will be developed, although only one of the two is sure to make it to production.

That may explain the Porsche Taycan’s model lineup naming strategy unveiled last year that is said to include a Taycan Turbo variant. Porsche is also expected to develop a Cross Turismo model with a higher ground clearance. There are no plans to develop a two-door Taycan, however. Porsche may be keeping that part for an eventual all-electric Porsche 911. Crazier things have happened in the automotive industry.

Porsche plans to unveil the Taycan in September at the Frankfurt Motor Show and first delivers are expected to happen before the end of the year. That’s surprising considering the Taycan was always believed to be arriving in 2020. Porsche did announce recently that it was planning to increase the Taycan production rate, however.

Lucky first Porsche Taycan owners will benefit for impressive charging times thanks to the incredible 800-volt charging system. When we visited the Taycan production facility back in September, Porsche explained in detail the complexity of engineering that electrical system and making sure it was safe for both factory workers and first responders.

Porsche told Autocar that the Taycan will charge at a rate of 100 kilometers every 4 minutes and go from 10 percent to 80 percent charge in just 20 minutes. Of course, this will require a fast-charging 350-kW charging system of which there aren’t many. Still, the Taycan should charge a lot faster than a traditional EV on our current charging network

Stay tuned for more Porsche Taycan updates as we get closer to launch.
