There are a host of electric cars and SUVs expected to launch in India this year. We take a look at the EVs that are set to reach our shores soon.
Porsche’s first crack at an all-electric four-door sportscar, the Taycan, is the first car to use an 800-volt electrical system, enabling charging at 350kW, which can provide 100km of range in a mere five minutes, and rapid-charging from 5 percent to 80 percent in roughly 20 minutes.
Its two electric motors produce a combined 625hp and 850Nm in the Turbo, resulting in a 0-100kph time of 3.2sec. In range-topping Turbo S form, the Taycan’s motors make a colossal 761hp and 1,050Nm with an overboost function, which helps it go from 0-100kph in just 2.8sec. It is set to be offered in our market in 4S, Turbo and Turbo S forms.
CLAIMED RANGE: 383-463km
