Tesla faces stiff competition as Porsche plans to boost Taycan production

2019 Porsche Taycan electric orders

The 20,000 reservations "is a significantly higher figure than we expected", Blume confirmed, explaining that "we usually only see ordering peaks after the first driving reports are available, when the vehicle is presented, and when customers have been able to sit in the auto in real life".

The first units are scheduled to be delivered before the end of the year.

With production of the final version of the model set to begin in September, we can conclude that the Taycan production version will likely make its in-the-flesh debut at the Frankfurt auto show in the fall. Porsche has said that should cut the 0-60 miles per hour time to under 3.5 seconds, but hasn't given a specific figure.

To meet strong demand and cut waiting times, Porsche is already taking the necessary measures to boost series production even before actually starting it.

Porsche has already registered more than 20,000 potential buyers for its first electric vehicle, the Taycan. While that was nothing more than a rumor, Porsche has since confirmed plans to boost Taycan production, though the company didn't disclose exact figures. Therefore, we are increasing our production capacity. According to NEDC, the maximum range is over 500 kilometres, and thanks to the vehicle's 800-volt architecture, charging energy for 100 kilometres takes about four minutes at a corresponding high power charging station. Porsche says it will be building the cars to order, not simplifying production by making a single specification. In the interview, he also reaffirmed that interest is well above what was initially expected and more so before anybody has seen the electric auto.
