All-new Porsche Taycan available in the UAE
Porsche’s first all-electric car – which was teased by its Mission E concept back in 2015 – has finally arrived in the UAE.
The car is being dubbed the future of performance EVs, and is expected to re-write the rule book on what electric vehicles are capable of.
The new motor is now up for order today, at Porsche Center Dubai and Northern Emirates, Al Nabooda Automobiles.
The Taycan arrives in two variants: the Turbo and Turbo S model. Both are powered by Porsche’s innovative 800-bolt system, that can deliver 750-horsepower and go from zero to 100kph in just 2.8 seconds.
Range is expected at around 450-kilometres on a single charge.
The exterior is undeniably Porsche, which the inside panels have been replaced with a single, curved, freestanding digital instrument cluster and a 10.9-inch ‘infotainment’ display.
“Today marks the beginning of the future for Porsche in Dubai and Northern Emirates, as we start taking orders for a car that redefines motoring,” said K. Rajaram, CEO, Al Nabooda Automobiles.
“The all-new Taycan is a sports car in the purest form but one which ticks every green credential box. With a driving performance on the level of a super car and reproducible acceleration without loss of power, it presents a real performance solution in an age of electric mobility,” said K. Rajaram, CEO, Al Nabooda Automobiles.
He added: “Unlike a car with a combustion engine, the Taycan is able to deliver its full torque instantly and with the lowest centre of gravity in the brand’s model range, this car feels like a real Porsche sports car, true to its badge on the bonnet.”
