About the Porsche Taycan

Expertly engineered with groundbreaking technologies that have been perfected on both public roadways and the racetrack, the Porsche Taycan is a stunning interpretation of an all-electric performance vehicle. Initially developed as the Porsche Mission E concept, the Taycan pushes the boundaries of electric driving thrills. As the first purely electric vehicle in the storied history of the Porsche brand, the Taycan offers a total system voltage of 800V, a combined max system output of 938 horsepower, and jaw-dropping acceleration capabilities.

Its poise at high speeds and stability through the corners is made possible by motorsports-inspired aerodynamics that help it slice through the air. Cleverly located within the vehicle’s underbody, the battery of the Taycan further contributes to its optimized center of gravity. Step inside the interior and you’ll be greeted by a stunning fully digital curved display that’s tailored to the quintessentially Porsche design of the cabin. Sophisticated connectivity features help you track your efficiency, charge status, and key performance data with a simple glance at one of up to three individual displays inside the Porsche Taycan.


What the Critics Say

“With a striking appearance as well as a highly customizable and high-tech interior, Porsche’s electrified four-door lives up to its premium pricing. The Taycan also does a remarkable job of reminding its pilot that they’re driving a Porsche thanks to its lively steering, stoic composure, and refined ride. Stomping the accelerator is like firing a missile, except it can be done repeatedly.” — Car and Driver

“Let’s get the big question out of the way: Can Porsche make an electric car feel like a Porsche? The answer is a resounding yes. Driver engagement doesn’t falter a bit, and the Taycan feels lighter than its weight would suggest. Bump up to the Turbo trims, and you’re treated to brutally quick acceleration. The Taycan is a looker, too.” — MotorTrend

What’s New for 2025

There are a wide range of key updates to the all-electric Porsche Taycan for the 2025 model year. Perhaps the most notable headline involves larger battery capacities, increasing both total performance output and maximum driving range ratings for the Taycan. Visual changes are highlighted by various new alloy wheel options, updated LED headlights, and a brand-new front fascia design. Last but not least, updates to the interior of the 2025 Taycan include new leather-free upholstery along with several new interior color configurations as well.

Porsche Taycan Performance

Thrilling Performance & Horsepower

Powering the Porsche Taycan is a pair of permanent synchronous motors along with a 105 kWh performance battery plus paired with an advanced two-speed transmission. Maximum power outputs for the Taycan model range span from 402 HP (Taycan), 536 HP (Taycan 4S), 871 HP (Taycan Turbo), or 938 HP (Taycan Turbo S) using Overboost Power with Launch Control. The range-topping Taycan Turbo S has the ability to rocket from 0 to 60 MPH in a remarkable 2.3 seconds using Launch Control on its way to a top speed of 161 MPH. Examples of Porsche Active Aerodynamics include adjustable cool air intakes and an adaptive rear spoiler, working in tandem to enhance both performance and efficiency. Available Porsche Ceramic Composite Brakes (PCCB) provide maximum stopping power for the all-electric Porsche Taycan.

Porsche Taycan Charging

Charging Innovations

Charge times and electric range remain two of the most essential components of the future of electromobility. Revolutionizing the way you view the concept of driving an EV, the Porsche Taycan delivers double the charging capacity of many electric vehicles on the market. Thanks to a maximum of 800V charging capabilities, the Taycan offers reduced charge times and lower unsprung weight thanks to the use of thinner-gauge copper wires in its charging system. As a matter of fact, you’ll have the freedom to travel over 200 miles on a single charge. Its range of charging solutions helps make the Taycan an even more practical option for making the switch to the EV lifestyle. Along with its home charging capabilities, the Taycan also includes access to Porsche Turbo Charging across a growing network of Electrify America 800V DC fast charging stations and at authorized Porsche dealers nationwide.
