2020 Porsche Taycan Overview
Porsche has finally taken the wraps off their first electric vehicle which was showcased at the Frankfurt Motor Show. This car was first showcased as the Porsche Mission E in 2015, but this time the car is in its final production process. This EV has given Porsche a new direction towards the future as this is their first full electric sedan to come out of Stuttgart and has given a new definition to the new era for Porsche. Moreover, this car competes against the likes of the Porsche Panamera, Tesla Model S, etc.
Porsche Taycan Design
2020 Porsche Taycan Exterior
The Toucan's design has been inspired from the Porsche 911 and the 918 and resembles the elements of the Panamera in its overall silhouette. The porsche has introduced many new features in their new production unit and thanks to those muscular shoulder lines and fenders. However, for the aerodynamic efficiency, the Taycan bears a very minimalistic, bold and clean design. In addition, the aerodynamically optimised design makes some contribution to low energy consumption resulting in a long range.
From the front, the Taycan gets a quad-LED headlamps setup which is sculpted inside a C-shaped housing that doubles up as an air inlet just for cooling the brakes. Apart from that, the car definitely looks elegant from the front. On the rear, the car misses the tail pipes but gets LED light band which makes it look more like a conventional Porsche.
2020 Porsche Taycan Interior/Features
Apart from a strongly-built exterior, the Taycan gets luxury interior design too. Which includes features such as-
- Huge screens.
- 16.8-inch curved digital instrument cluster behind the steering wheel.
- Five-dial layout what we've already seen in many models of Porsche, but the analog tachometer is gone.
- Two touch-screens on the dashboard, one that functions as the infotainment screen and the one on the center console houses vehicle settings and climate controls.
- Optional fourth display for the passenger.
The dashboard design of the Toucan has been inspired from the 911 of 1963 and then given a modern touch which includes the analog clock on top of the dashboard.Says, Porsche.
The dashboard gets a better structure. Thanks to the minimalist and ultra-modern design, now you can operate the controls free from distractions and are clearly driver-focused.
