Porsche Taycan is the production name for the Mission E EV

Extensive modifications and expansion at the Zuffenhausen headquarters At the Porsche headquarters in Zuffenhausen, a new paint shop, dedicated assembly area for the Taycan and a conveyor bridge for transporting the painted bodies and drive units to the final assembly area are now being constructed. The Taycan will have an electric system output upwards of 600hp and a possible range of more than 500km on a full charge. Although the Taycan shares a similar silhouette to the Panamera saloon, the Tesla Model S rival will be more compact and cheaper; entry-level versions priced between £60,000 and £70,000 mean it will carry only a small premium over its main rival. Up until now, the Model S has been without any direct competition since its debut in 2012, although that is changing.

STUTTGART, Germany -Porsche's first electric auto, which has been known as the Mission E during its development, will be called the Taycan (pronounced tie-con), when it goes on sale late next year. Porsche US plans to install 500 such chargers across the US by the end of 2019. In preparation, the vehicle previously operating under the working title "Mission E" has now been given its official name: Taycan.

At Porsche, the vehicle names generally have a concrete connection with the corresponding model and its characteristics.

Porsche say you won't need to spend half an hour "conditioning" the Taycan to get that performance and, as long as you have juice to play with, the Taycan will keep on delivering its power. The production electric vehicle will begin in 2020. Porsche both needs electrification to comply with tougher emissions rules and is embracing the technology because it allows for sporty driving that dovetails with the brand, he said.

Fox News apologizes after Eagles' Zach Ertz blasts national anthem 'propaganda'
The White House held an alternate ceremony without the Eagles, which focused on patriotism rather than the Super Bowl winners. Trump had tweeted on Monday that kneeling or staying in the locker room during the anthem is "disrespectful to our country".

Charging infrastructure and other "smart mobility" expenses will soak up around 700 million euro, Porsche expects.

At the Zuffenhausen HQ, Porsche has a new paint show and dedicated paint shop for the new auto.

Under the hood, the Taycan will have electric motors and a battery pack and practically no noise except for that of the running tyres.
