Porsche Prepares To Start Production Of All-New Fully Electric Taycan
Porsche prepares to start mass production of an all-new fully electric Porsche Taycan model.
The company has already invested about $6.94 billion and hired 1,200 employees to assemble the car at the plant in Zuffenhausen.
The manufacture will be completely climate-neutral (free of CO2 emissions) to comply with environmentally friendly status. Over time, Porsche plans to zero impact on invironment.
Porsche’s flexible production line will be the first to use unmanned technology in mass car production.
The Taycan is one of biggest creators of jobs in the history of Porsche,
Andreas Haffner, Member of the Executive Board says.
1,200 employees will be involved in production of electric vehicles. Some of them will participate in building of a two-door sports car. Most likely, it’s about a new-generation 911. The automaker plans to create a team that would combine new employees and experienced staff.
As for the electric car itself, Porsche says they have developed lithium-ion batteries of unprecedented density for the Taycan. They can be charged in 4 minutes for a run of 100 km.
By the way, the Taycan got the 22-kW Porsche Mobile Charger Connect which is a quick and convenient way to charge the vehicle at home overnight.
Together with BMW, Daimler and Ford, Porsche will build 400 high-power charging stations with a capacity of 350kW per charging point across Europe by the end of 2019.
Moreover, the VW Group has the ‘Electrify America’ project in the USA: installation of charging infrastructure (capacity of up to 350kW) at 300 motorway stations from 2019.
