SIt was a model value before and after the Porsche, the gateway to what will be the future of the automotive industry: Taycan, the first 100% electric hatchback signature Stuttgart is already in the final test before the presentation is scheduled for September this year.
It was on his own brand, who made a statement, with images showing a variety of tests that are experiencing the product known in the concept stage as the mission of E and in the most extreme conditions out & # 39; I, to ensure adequate adaptation to the many markets where it It will be sold. In fact, there are more than 20,000 firm orders from potential buyers who have made an advance and began to build the device.
As a sport with internal combustion engines, it has been tested Taycan scenarios as diverse as severe winter -a km Scandinavian Arctic circle at 35 degrees below zero; South Africa's hot summers and unforgiving desert of Dubai with more than 50 degrees Celsius. These tests have to stress load and check the battery performance or control of engine temperature and salon. characteristics of the circuit, some acceleration and versatility for everyday use were also evaluated.
In this regard, Stephen Weckbach, vice president of Taycan project, said: "After the computer & # 39; computer simulation and extensive testing bench early stage, we have reached the last stage of this comprehensive testing program. Before you start Taycan market we have already covered about six million kilometers this year worldwide. We are already very happy with the current situation where there are vehicles. Taycan will be a real Porsche ».
Being electric sedan of the German mark was evaluated not only in the real world, but in practice: as noted in the official statement, the testers were able to use a vast experience in the process of testing a computer using Digital Prototyping. Currently, computers are used for the body design, the drive unit, chassis, electronics and, ultimately, the entire vehicle, if it is a new model; In addition, to mimic their function and how they all work together. In general, virtual prototypes have completed more than 10 million digital kilometers.
Using this technology, the Taycan on & # 39; went almost midnight Nürburgring to test their effectiveness in the track and check the management of electrical energy, with the & # 39 is a key factor, so if you run the actual tests, the vehicle can lose eight minutes ago on the road 20.6 kilometers, in which Porsche has several entries.
According to the company, the first Taycan units will begin shipping at the end of the year, and promises a range of more than 500 kilometers according to the NEDC cycle) thanks to its lithium-ion battery 800, and a system that will allow to accumulate enough energy to travel 100 kilometers in just four mintues.
