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.
Taycan Turbo S: CO2 emissions combined 0 g/km, Electricity consumption combined 28.5 kwh/100 km
*Data determined in accordance with the Worldwide Harmonized Light Vehicles Test Procedure (WLTP) as required by law. You can find more information on WLTP at www.porsche.com/wltp . For Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicle (PHEV) range and Equivalent All Electric Range (EAER) figures are determined with the battery fully charged, using a combination of both battery power and fuel.
Values are provided for comparison only. To the extent that fuel and energy consumption or CO₂ values are given as ranges, these do not relate to a single, individual car and do not constitute part of the offer. Optional features and accessories can change relevant vehicle parameters such as weight, rolling resistance and aerodynamics which may result in a change in fuel or energy consumption and CO₂ values. Vehicle loading, topography, weather and traffic conditions, as well as individual driving styles, can all affect the actual fuel consumption, energy consumption, electrical range, and CO₂ emissions of a car.
