Porsche which unveiled its first ever fully electric car three years ago formerly known as the Mission E concept car finally has a name— ‘Taycan’ (tie-con), a Turkish-derived name meaning “lively young horse”.
According to a report by CNN Tech, the four-door car will be able to go 60 miles an hour under 3.5 seconds with its two electric motors that produce more than 600 horsepower.
Porsche said that Tycan with a top speed of 155 miles an hour will offer a “level of continuous power that is unmatched by any other electric vehicle.”
The electric car is also said to go 300 miles on a single charge, and 240 miles for a 15-minute fast charging.
It is expected that Porsche will be making different versions of the electric car raging from fast to extremely fast just like how it does with all of its cars.
The company is also working with partners to create 500 fast charging stations along high ways and Porsche dealers in the United States.
Through working with other automakers such as BMW and Ford, the company is also set to build charging points in Europe.
Tycan will be on sale late next year with a starting price of $80,000 to $90,000.
