Engine and Performance of the 2022 Porsche Taycan Electric

The 2022 Porsche Taycan will be seen in three different trim levels with different configurations. The three different trim levels are Base, 4S, and GTS. Opting for any trim level you will be greeted with a long list of unique and fully-charged features. But, we will be talking about the Base version of the Porsche Taycan Electric.

Under the hood of that beautiful body lies a highly powerful AC Permanent Synchronous Motor or electric engine. The engine of the model is capable of producing 402 horsepower. Unfortunately, we do not have the value for its torque output. Still, with that heavy and powerful engine, the torque output by the model would surely be enormous.

The power outcome of the Taycan is equally distributed to its rear wheels only. But, we do have to give its superior 2-speed direct-drive transmission credits for its overall better pickup and performance. Additionally, the engine of the Taycan helps it reach from 0-60 MPH in just 5.1 seconds and finishes quarter-mile run in just 13.7 seconds run.
