The Porsche Taycan is an exceptional feat of engineering as the brand's first all-electric sports car. This we already know.
However, the award-winning performance car is not only beautifully designed and impressively powerful, but also exceptionally efficient in its ability to recover energy while driving with its unique recuperation management system.
Ingo Albers, Head of Chassis Development at the Porsche development centre in Weissach explained “We incorporate the electric motors we produce in Zuffenhausen into the brake system for the purpose of energy recovery,”
In short, the Taycan's electric motor can generate electrical energy, rather than consuming when slowing down and storing the power generated in the battery.
As one of the most desirable electric vehicles on the planet, being able to recuperate some of its energy through braking is just another reason why the Porsche Taycan is so innovative.
*Data determined in accordance with the Worldwide Harmonized Light Vehicles Test Procedure (WLTP) as required by law. You can find more information on WLTP at www.porsche.com/wltp . For Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicle (PHEV) range and Equivalent All Electric Range (EAER) figures are determined with the battery fully charged, using a combination of both battery power and fuel.
Values are provided for comparison only. To the extent that fuel and energy consumption or CO₂ values are given as ranges, these do not relate to a single, individual car and do not constitute part of the offer. Optional features and accessories can change relevant vehicle parameters such as weight, rolling resistance and aerodynamics which may result in a change in fuel or energy consumption and CO₂ values. Vehicle loading, topography, weather and traffic conditions, as well as individual driving styles, can all affect the actual fuel consumption, energy consumption, electrical range, and CO₂ emissions of a car.
