Pfaff Automotive Partners recently invited partners and customers to celebrate Pfaff Porsche's launch of the Taycan – Porsche’s first production all-electric vehicle, and the fastest-accelerating street car it has ever made. The event took place at the Ontario Science Centre.
With room for four, up to 750 horsepower, all-wheel-drive, and an all-touchscreen interior, the Taycan is a technical tour-de-force and the most advanced sedan on the market.
The flagship Turbo S version of the Taycan can generate up to 560 kW (761 PS; Taycan Turbo S: combined power consumption 26.9 kWh/100 km; combined CO2 emissions 0 g/km) overboost power in combination with Launch Control, and the Taycan Turbo up to 500 kW (680 PS; Taycan Turbo: combined power consumption 26.0 kWh/100 km; combined CO2 emissions 0 g/km). The Taycan Turbo S accelerates from zero to 100 km/h in 2.8 seconds, while the Taycan Turbo completes this sprint in 3.2 seconds. The Turbo S has a range of up to 412 kilometres, and the Turbo a range of up to 450 kilometres. The top speed of both all-wheel-drive models is 260 km/h.
The Taycan is the first production electric vehicle to use a two-speed transmission and an 800-volt electrical system, which allow for quicker acceleration and shorter recharge times, respectively.
