Porsche to Increase Taycan Production to 40,000 Cars a Year
Porsche is increasing the production of their upcoming Taycan electric car as they received over 20,000 pre-orders already for the vehicle.
While presenting at the Geneva Motor Show Detlev von Platen, Member of the Executive Board for Sales and Marketing at Porsche AG, made a comment:
“The overwhelming interest in the Taycan shows us that our customers and fans are just as excited about the first Porsche electric athlete as we are – and we’ve therefore increased our production capacities. The Taycan will be the most sporty and most technically advanced vehicle in its segment – a true Porsche.”
This follows a recent German report which stated that Porsche was planning on increasing its production to around 40,000 cars per year.
Following all this information Porsche announced that customers in Norway had placed close to 3,000 reservations with deposits alone. This is surprisingly high for the country as traditionally Porsche only sells around 600 vehicles a year in that market.
The Taycan could prove to be a great seller for Porsche in the coming years. The first version of the car is expected to have a 250-mile range and a new fast-charging system built in. This system will allow the vehicle to charge up to 80% in just 15 minutes.
