Porsche Taycan Employs Two High-Tech Electric Motors

Post by Rob » Tue Jul 31, 2018 11:06 am

Porsche recently confirmed the production version of the Mission E would be called the Taycan, and now the automaker has released additional information about its upcoming electric vehicle.


Set to debut next year, the Taycan will have an 800 volt electrical system and two electric motors that produce a combined output in excess of 592 HP (441 kW / 600 PS). This will enable it to accelerate from 0-100 km/h (0-62 mph) in less than 3.5 seconds and 0-200 km/h (0-124 mph) in less than 12 seconds. Furthermore, the model will have a range in excess of 500 km (310 miles) in the New European Driving Cycle.

While the company has previously confirmed those numbers, the automaker noted the Taycan will have two “permanently excited synchronous motors, like those deployed in the Le Mans–winning 919 Hybrid.” Billing them as the “turbos of the electric motor milieu,” the motors generate a permanent rotary motion that can be applied at any time without needing to be started. Porsche says they were able to achieve this by have a “permanently magnetized rotor forced into a rotary motion by the magnetic field of the stator.”
