Bill Nye The Science Guy

Bill Nye, The Science Guy, explains the tech behind the Porsche Taycan in a new video series


A five-part series highlights what sets the Taycan apart – its battery, clever aerodynamics, regenerative braking, two-speed transmission and repeatable performance.

As consumer interest and market share in battery electric vehicles (BEVs) continue to grow, many are intrigued by the Porsche Taycan and how it differs from other BEVs. To satisfy that curiosity, Porsche teamed up with the well-known engineer and science educator, Bill Nye, The Science Guy, at the Porsche Experience Centre Los Angeles, to explain the technology behind the sports car manufacturer’s first all-electric vehicle. Building upon its release of the film, Going The Distance, Porsche Cars North America released a five-part video series called “Bill Nye Explains The All-Electric Taycan” on the Porsche YouTube channel.

The Taycan Turbo S is the flagship of the Taycan model line: capable of accelerating from a standstill to 100 km/h in just 2.8 seconds with Launch Control. It’s equipped with all-wheel drive and, through its twin electric motors, can generate up to 750 hp.
