Porsche Picks Taycan as Name for Its First Electric Vehicle

Porsche 911 Mission E Rendering

The German automaker announced today (June 8) that its first all-electric supercar, which was called the Mission E in development, will be known as the Taycan, an Eurasian name which roughly translates as "lively young horse".

The news follows the release of the the first official drive footage of the Taycan last month, which showed the electric sports vehicle being driven at pace by Mark Webber around the brand's Weissach test track. The new sedan promises to race from 0-100km/h in under 3.5 seconds, and hit 200km/h within 12 seconds.

Porsche makes different versions of all its cars, ranging from from fast to extremely fast, and it's expected to do the same with the Taycan.

All of them reported eating pre-cut cantaloupe, watermelon, or a fruit salad mix with one or both of them. Elderly people, infants and anyone with weak immune systems are more likely to have a severe illness.

Like it? Love it?

This version of the Taycan is expected to be the flagship model; Porsche has invested a further 500million Euros (£437million) into its electrification strategy to develop additional versions of the auto.

The company has previously been talking about a 0 to 60 miles per hour acceleration in 3.5 seconds and earlier this year, a Porsche executive said that the Mission E will be able to go long distances at high-speed, like traveling on the German autobahn, or to complete a few laps on the race track.

This week will be the ultimate test to see whether Sharapova is ready to return to the summit of women's tennis . Videos showed that Williams was facing difficulties carrying her bag off the court after the match on Sunday.

Previewed in our exclusive images, the Taycan will bear a close resemblance to the concept in shape and style, but the rear-hinged back doors and matrix LED headlamps will be adapted for production. As we've seen in the past, something that resonates positively with potential buyers can be enough to persuade a auto company not to go ahead with a rebranding at all.

We'll have more, including a first drive of the Taycan, as soon as we get it. The engine plant is being expanded to manufacture electric motors. Porsche also says that it has "a continuous power level that is unprecedented among electric vehicles".

Porsche plans to invest more than six billion Euros in electromobility by 2022, doubling the investment that the company had originally planned. Porsche is likely to follow its current strategy for gas and hybrid cars with is all-electric models, though, and offer varying degrees of performance under badges like "S" and "GTS" in the future.
