Porsche’s Taycan EV could start around US$90,000, get ‘Turbo’ trim

first_imgIt’s official—the Porsche Taycan’s name is pronounced ‘Tie-Kahn’ Porsche has not said exactly how many pre-orders it has received, but has said worldwide production targets for its first year were about 20,000 cars, before announcing early December 2018 that strong demand will likely drive that number upwards. Trending in Canada advertisement Maybe old habits just die hard. Or maybe the company is hoping that sort of nomenclature will make the car more appealing to the traditional purchasers of Porsche’s gasoline-engined cars.One demographic Porsche is not shy about appealing to is Tesla Model S owners. The CEO of the company’s North American arm, Klaus Zellmer, recently told CNET the flood of pre-orders its received for the Taycan so far may mean the car’s first year of production is sold out.Most of those pre-orders, made via a US$2,500 deposit, came from current Tesla owners, Zellmer said.

Porsche’s much-anticipated electric sedan, the Taycan, could start around US$90,000, near US$100,000 for a mid-grade AWD “Taycan 4S” and top out at US$130,000 for the performance model when it goes on sale late 2019, according to new reports.Perhaps confusingly, that top-of-the-line trim may be dubbed the “Taycan Turbo,” TechCrunch quotes an email from Porsche sent to journalist Alex Roy.The German automaker has long positioned its turbocharged Turbo models at the top of its model lines, but of course a battery-powered car like the Taycan can’t be turbocharged in any traditional sense of the word.
