Porsche Taycan Passes Final Tests Before Launch Into Production
Porsche’s first all-electric sports car, the Taycan, is undergoing final road tests in diаferent parts of the globe at temperatures from -35°C to +50°C.
For checking driving dynamics in snow and ice, the Porsche Taycan is being tested in Scandinavia near the Arctic Circle. At the same time, in South Africa engineers of the company are conducting performance tests. In Dubai they are carrying out hot-climate endurance runs testing how the battery charges under extreme conditions.
The Porsche Taycan covered 6 mln km, of which 2 mln km were endurance runs. The tests were made in 30 countries, including the USA, China, the UAE and Finland, at temperatures from -35°C to +50°C and air humidity of 20-100%, altitude from 85m below to 3,000m above sea level.
Charging cycles: over 100,000 using various charging technologies across the world. Around 1,000 test drivers, technicians and engineers took part in testing.
At an early stage they drove the Taycan around the Nürburgring Nordschleife in a driving simulator during digital tests with the help of digital prototypes.
The 2020 Porsche Taycan has been already pre-ordered (down paid) by more than 20,000 customers. The carmaker will present it in September and launch onto the market at the end of 2019.
