The new electric Porsche Taycan was the big star in this year’s “World Car of the Year” award. The winners were announced during the live online conference by WCOTY.
The Porsche Taycan is the German company’s first pure electric sports car. It is a four-door sports saloon, offering Porsche’s high performance and connectivity in everyday use. Takes first place in two categories : winning as World Luxury Car and World Performance Car of the Year.
At the same time, taycan’s highly advanced production methods and characteristics set new standards in the areas of sustainability and digitisation. The first models in the new series are the Taycan 4S, Taycan Turbo and Taycan Turbo S.
Michael Steiner – Member of the Executive Board, Research and Development said about Porsche Taycan World Car of the Yea award :
This double win in the categories World Performance Car and World Luxury Car underlines what we wanted to achieve when we developed the Taycan. We wanted to create a driver-focused, fully electric sports car that can take on any Performance Car. At the same time we focused on uncompromised everyday-usability and contemporary, digital luxury and comfort for four passengers. We are delighted that the WCOTY jury rewards these efforts
All versions of the Taycan feature two electric motors, one front and one rear, giving real character all-wheel drive to the two cars. The two-speed gearbox also on the rear axle is a Porsche innovation where the first gear offers maximum acceleration while the second is used on motorways and long distances to conserving energy.
