On the Pingtan Island in Fuzhou, wind turbines are running without stopping.
On the evening of September 5th, Porsche’s first electric car, Taycan’s China conference, was chosen here. I saw these big guys who use wind power, and I’m very open. The Germans from afar are here. It will have far-reaching implications.
In addition to China, Porsche has also selected venues in Germany and Canada. The selected places are also classic landmarks for solar and hydropower.
The next era of Porsche will be opened by Taycan, keyword: Clean energy.
Put the Mission E concept car into reality
Friends who have long been concerned about Taycan must not be unfamiliar with Mission E. A few years ago, Porsche put the Mission E production plan on the agenda. Taking this as a guiding ideology, Taycan was born with the classic 911 as the blueprint.
Four four-door, exquisite four-eye square lamp, slim body, and the large air intake on the front face provide sufficient protection for the heat of the brakes and battery. You don’t have to look at the various visual elements, you can easily see its close blood relationship with Mission E.
Taycan is not a car. The 4693/1966/1378mm measurements and the 2900mm wheelbase are obviously bigger than the 911 model, and the posture is close to the Panamera.
Even in this size, Porsche has clearly defined it as an “electric sports car” from the beginning to the end, rather than a “coupe” that is more cross-border. Throughout the entire family of Porsche, all the civilian cars are in the head, and the “sports car” on the top is also 718 and 911.
Some people say that the four doors can’t be called sports cars, but the sports car seems to have never had the historical rule of “number of heroes”.
Taycan’s four-door shape is still so thin that the chassis of the 911 is too thin to fit enough batteries.
Yes, thanks to Panamera’s MSB platform, Porsche has hatched today’s new Taycan. In order to ensure the coordination of the appearance of the vehicle and to take into account certain practicalities, the Taycan is simply made into a four-door model.
After all, Porsche has always been “energy capable.”
If you have read the article that the Dong Che Club pushed half a month ago “Porsche has spoiled the Taycan interior in advance, how many good games are still there. Behind? “, presumably you have already seen the interior of Taycan.
Yes, it is also a highly restored Mission E, which maximizes the mass production of the four-screen interior of the concept car. In addition to the modern elements, Porsche also retains a consistent “driver-centric” cabin design concept. Regardless of oilStill using electricity, every Porsche sports car must “figh”.
We spent two thousand words on Taycan’s interior design details, and interested friends can flip through previous articles.
Sports car, it’s a bit hardcore
Taycan is currently divided into Turbo and Turbo S versions, with 1.498 million and 1.789 million before the option. How much is it before the optional, Porsche, you know!
Turbo: 460kw, 850Nm, super boosted power 500kw; 0-100km/h time 3.2s, 0-200km/h time 10.6s; speed 260km/h. NEDC has a battery life of 465km.
Turbo S: 460kw, 1050Nm, super boosted power 560kw. 0-100km/h Time is 2.8s, 0-200km/h is 9.8s, and the speed is 260km/h. NEDC has a battery life of 465km.
The difference in performance between the two is all on one S. Turbo here is not a turbo, but a so-called supercharger. Turbo S is higher than Turbo in super-boost power and instantaneous torque of ejection. One cut.
The data is quite boring, and the results are straightforward: New Zealand’s fastest-production electric car, 7 minutes and 42 seconds.
One word, fast, and faster than ever.
Should this time Tesla Model S P100D stand up and have something to say, indeed, in the project of the straight line, the two are equal, even Taycan 0-100km/h is still weak.
But after the track, who is a professional player at a glance. Continuous high output, endurance geometry after 200km/h, and vehicle limits beyond speed, etc., the track is the best place to test sports cars.
Before Taycan debuted, Porsche conducted a series of metamorphosis tests.
“The ejection start” has always been a project that Porsche fans are relishing. The PDK gearbox that is not bad is the magic weapon for Porsche in the fuel age. After electrification?
Continuously 26 times 0-200km/h Ejection starts, the fastest and slowest results are only 0.8 seconds.
24-hour endurance test, running 3,425 kilometers in 24 hours, when you go to charge and change drivers, Taycan only runs on the road, the average speed is about 200km / h.
As we all know, the current trams are often only “fast in the picture”, and it is easy to show fatigue under the condition of continuous limit output. But what is Porsche’s best in 24 hours and decades? Endurance.
Although the electric bike is barely visible on Le Mans’ track, the Porsche 919 Hybrid Evo, which is a hybrid model, won three consecutive championships in 2015-2017. These technical accumulations are significant for Taycan, and trams are also It is definitely not empty talk.
In order to provide Taycan with faster acceleration and higher speed, Porsche has placed a two-speed transmission with a large gear ratio on the rear axle of Taycan. Like the fuel car, the purpose of the transmission is to ensure higher efficiency of the motor. .
Because of the characteristics of the motor, the short-term explosive force is strong but the power will be weak after the high turn. The core problem of the Taycan transmission solution is here.
In the speed range of 100-200km/h, Taycan can guarantee long-lasting explosive power. There are three key factors: 1. High-performance motors before and after; 2, 800V high-voltage battery; 3. Two-speed transmission.
With all of the above, Taycan is just a straight line machine without feelings, and then Porsche injects the family skills into Taycan is the soul of the brand.
1. Porsche Dynamic Chassis Control System:
First of all, you need to explain, this is an option.
The system works by actively compensating for the difference in position between the left and right wheels to minimize the roll caused by lateral acceleration. When the Taycan is fully loaded with lateral acceleration, the roll angle of the body is still close to zero.
Speaking people is to reduce the roll. On the one hand, it guarantees comfort and, more importantly, it can suppress oversteer and understeer in milliseconds.
2. Rear axle steering system:
At high speeds, the rear wheels rotate in the same direction as the front wheels, reducing yaw and side slip angles and rapidly increasing lateral acceleration. At low speeds, the rear wheel rotates in the opposite direction to the front wheel, using a shortened virtual wheelbase to increase vehicle flexibility and reduce steering radius.
The biggest benefit is to make the body more flexible and more stable.
3. New three-chamber air suspension:
The new air suspension has a large adjustable damping and uses a large number of fiberglass and resin components. The body can be lowered by 10 mm at speeds above 90 km and 22 mm at speeds above 180 km.
There is a saying in the refit circle that says “Hundreds of changes will be reduced first”. The original Taycan factory will arrange for you to meet the different scenes of buying food and going down the track through different suspension modes.
4. Powerful braking:
The Taycan Turbo S comes standard with the Porsche Composite Ceramic Brake System (PCCB) with a front disc diameter of 420 mm.The brake disc is 410 mm;
The Taycan Turbo comes standard with the Porsche Surface Coating Brake System (PSCB) with a front disc diameter of 415 mm and a rear brake disc of 365 mm.
The two cars have different brake systems, but the calipers are the first 10 rear and 4 pistons. The appearance is amazing enough.
800V super charge, fast running fast too fast
Difficulties in charging have always been the biggest drawback of trams. Although the Taycan group does not lack the hardware conditions such as parking spaces, the rapid replenishment is still the unremitting pursuit of all tram users. Run fast, you must also charge quickly.
So the 800V charging system is coming, the whole car is charged 93kWh, and it can charge 100km in five minutes.
However, due to the current domestic environment, Porsche’s ultra-high-voltage charging system still has some discounts in China, but the charging power of up to 200kW is still difficult for many manufacturers to reach.
The environment is getting better and better, and the system can continue to achieve 300-500kW with unlimited prospects. In other words, Taycan will not be outdated in the next few years, after all, it is now at the peak of the industry.
But it’s not easy to use 800V charging, you have to look around your home.Is there a Porsche Centre…
According to Porsche’s plan, 80% of Porsche Centres nationwide will be equipped with high-power charging facilities by 2020. At the same time, Porsche will start to build an exclusive parking charging network in Beijing, Shanghai, Shenzhen and Chengdu.
It is expected to lay more than 100 Porsche exclusive parking charging outlets by the end of 2020, including high-power DC charging and fast DC charging services.
At the same time, Porsche will also be the first to open a valet charging service in these four major cities.
Intelligence is not full, but this is a Porsche
It’s so much to boast that it’s necessary to pour cold water on Taycan.
Although the four-screen interior is very stunning, at the level of the car software system, Porsche is obviously not as good at making machinery.
Since the four screens are clear, the UI design technology is also good, but there is not much depth intelligence. At present, it still stays on the telephone, music, navigation, and vehicle settings. The so-called Porsche Connect is also a normal operation.
Although the function is “old”, it is easier to get started. The on-board voice recognition technology seems to solve a lot of problems, but in the country where the dialect is complicated, it still has to go. In this regard, Porsche and BBA companies have always done nothing.
One surprise is that Porsche Taycan and Apple have integrated Apple Music into the car. You can log in to your Apple ID to access all of Apple’s genuine music, which is extremely friendly for heavy Apple users.
Finally, as for autopilot, don’t ask, this is a Porsche, please hold the steering wheel firmly in your hand.
Taycan has no opponents in this position
After the release of Taycan, many people compared it with the Tesla Model S, which is close to the price point, and even made detailed comparisons of the parameters, vowing to separate the two cars and fight for it. Who buys more value.
I think from beginning to end that Taycan has no opponents at this level.
The overlap between Taycan and Model S is nothing more than two points, 1. The same million price range, 2 violent linear acceleration performance.
But don’t forget, Taycan is a sports car, a professional track player. On the other hand, Model S, this is a pragmatic but home player with a little performance. The excellent acceleration is just a by-product of the violent motor.
For pure Porsche powder, there is absolutely no comparability between the two.
In the segment of the pure sports car, Taycan has no competing products. The only thing that can be compared with this is the next Tesla Roadster 2.
Model S The real opponent is Panamera. Model S has snatched a large number of Panamera sneakers with novel technology and outstanding performance, but has never shaken the historical position of 911. The analogy is not difficult to understand.
The same thing is that today’s Taycan is as amazing as the Model S of the year, offering more choices for the rich in the market segment, to buy Taycan for a pure driving experience, or for Home S.
But in any case, as a member of the traditional camp, Taycan’s ecstasy has hurt Tesla, which is beyond doubt.
