Not content with merely evolving Porsche’s signature exterior design cues and shape, the new all-electric Taycan also prompted a rethink of the “standard” Porsche interior.
“Less is more applies here too,” explains Ivo van Hulten, Director Interior Design Style Porsche at Porsche AG. “The Taycan interior combines design elements typical for the brand with a new type of user experience, and impresses with its simple elegance.” Porsche will present the Taycan to a worldwide audience in September 2019.
Inspired by the original 911’s cleanly styled dashboard from 1963, van Hulten reaffirms his belief that the cockpit of this new vehicle signals the start of a new era in interior automotive design, by pushing the boundaries of where analogue, organic and digital instrumentation meet.
The Taycan is the first fully electric production vehicle with a system voltage of 800 volts. This technology enables consistently high performance, reduces the charging time and decreases the weight and the packaging space of the cabling. During recent endurance test drive at the Nardò Technical Center in Italy, 800-volt high-power charging stations by Porsche Engineering Group GmbH were used.
