Porsche is charging into the future.  Their first pure electric sports car, the Taycan, is wrapping up the final phase of real world testing before entering production.  It’s been a grueling process for this luxury EV.  Test drives have taken place in 30 countries around the world covering close to 4-million miles.  It’s about much more than putting miles of the odometer.  The Taycan has faced a wide range of environments, from the frigid cold just a few miles away from the Arctic Circle to the searing heat in Dubai.  Porsche’s EV has endured temperature swings ranging from -25 to 122 degrees. All that driving means a lot of plugging in.  Porsche says there have been more than 100,000 charging cycles.

When we do get a chance to drive it, Porsche says we can expect a range of 310-miles.  Since it will wear the Porsche badge, they say 0-62 mph will happen in “significantly less” than 3.5 seconds. The Porsche Taycan will be introduced in September, and launched at the end of the year.
