Porsche names its first electric car

Porsche's first all-electric car is to be called the Taycan, writes Brian Byrne.

Targeting the Tesla Model S, Jaguar's I-Pace, and the Audi e-tron, the car is expected to be unveiled later this year, and be on sale next year.

The dual electric motor will have the equivalent of 600hp on tap, and is expected to have a real-world range in excess of 320km.

The new sport sedan has been concepted as the Mission E.
