The Porsche Taycan is a battery electric saloon and shooting brake produced by German automobile manufacturer Porsche. The concept version of the Taycan, named the Porsche Mission E, debuted at the 2015 Frankfurt Motor Show. The Taycan was revealed fully production-ready at the 2019 Frankfurt Motor Show. As Porsche’s first series production electric car, it is sold in several variants at different performance levels, and may spawn further derivatives in future models. More than 20,000 Taycans were delivered in 2020, its debut sale year, representing 7.4% of the total Porsche volume. The name “Taycan” roughly translates from Turkish tay+can as “lively young horse”, in reference to the steed of the Stuttgart coat of arms on the Porsche crest. The Taycan’s interior features Porsche’s first fully digital instrumentation, with up to four digital displays, including a curved, free-standing 16.8-inch configurable driver’s display. A 280 mm (10.9 in) screen to the right of the instrument cluster is the car’s infotainment center.
