Porsche’s top-of-the-line EV to get the Turbo name and a $130,000-plus price tag



Porsche’so called upcoming Taycan, that is predicted to go on the market next year, will possess three or more versions of this all-electric sports automobile, including an all-wheel drive version. But it’s the Taycan Turbo — the name Porsche is giving its top notch version — that reveals the automaker’therefore approach.

The names — the Taycan for its base version, Taycan 4S for its all-wheel drive version and Taycan Turbo for its functionality variant — as well as prices ranges for each were initially reported by columnist Alex Roy. As Roy notes, however, “turbo” is language used for internal combustion engine .

It seems the performance edition of this Porsche Taycan EV is going to probably be branded “Turbo”.

Since ICE nomenclature is the one that brings clients to EV.

The electric vehicle is observed (in certain circles) as a threat to Tesla, which has dominated the luxury electric vehicle marketplace.  With this much investment directed toward Porsche’s first all-electric automobile, the German automaker is using nomenclature recognizable to its existing customer base, lots of whom have never possessed an EV.
