News Porsche Taycan Charging Times are Insane

Porsche Taycan Charging Times are Insane

We already know the Porsche Taycan will be a special vehicle, there’s no doubt about that. As we learned last month, it’s already reshaping Porsche’s production methods and facilities, and early specs tell us it will be quite the performance machine. 

From what we learned recently, it appears the Taycan will be as quick to charge as it will to reach its top speed. In an interview with German newspaper Welt am Sonntag over the weekend, Porsche CEO Oliver Blume indicated that the 800V electric system in the Taycan would give the new EV 400 kilometers of range (250 miles) in 20 minutes.

If your calculator is nearby, it will confirm that that’s about 100 kilometers or 62 miles in 4 minutes using a 350 kWh charging station that Porsche has begun installing. Although these charging behemoths aren’t yet common place, Porsche expects to install 500 of them in North America in time for the Taycan’s launch. 

5 Surprising Facts About the Porsche Taycan’s Production

Given the fact that they provide the Taycan with useful range in less time than it takes to fill a tank of gas, that’s good news.
