Tesla faces stiff competition as Porsche plans to boost Taycan production

Porsche Taycan production model confirmed for September debut

Porsche Taycan production version set for September unveiling

More than 20,000 people worldwide have placed reservations to show "serious interest" in buying the Taycan, Porsche has confirmed.

If we are to count that all the 20,000 paid the deposit, the total amounts to about Euro 50 million raised from registration fees alone.

Porsche is parent Volkswagen's most profitable brand and its success is vital for the group to pull off the industry's most aggressive push into electric vehicles.

Porsche has said the Taycan will have a range of over 300 miles, produce over 600 horsepower, and accelerate from 0-60 mph in under 3.5 seconds.

That could include the loan of a different vehicle.

In 2018, Porsche's head of electric vehicles, Stefan Weckbach, said the Taycan will be able to sustain its performance better than the Model S. The Taycan "will offer reproducible performance and a top speed which can be maintained for long periods", he said. If there are waiting times, we might take the opportunity to gently introduce customers to the Taycan; so for example, we could make a Panamera plug-in hybrid temporarily available to customers before they receive a Taycan.

The great interest has led to Porsche increasing its production capacity from 20,000 to 40,000 electric cars per year this January.
