Porsche just unveiled its first fully electric sports car, the Taycan.
The car has features and specs that aren’t found in any other Porsche or electric vehicle on the market.
For example, Taycan is the first car with a system voltage of 800 instead of the more common 400 volts, allowing the car to charge more efficiently, according to the automaker.
Porsche focused on sustainability in the Taycan. Its interior can be ordered leather-free, instead made from recycled material. The three-location world premiere of the car also emphasized sustainable energy resources.
The unveiling in North America took place at Niagara Falls, New York, to represent hydropower. The European unveiling was on a solar farm. And the unveiling in Asia was on a wind farm in Fuzhou, China.
“We perceive these natural forces with all our senses in exactly the same way as we experience the impressive power delivery of the first all-electric sports car from Porsche,” the automaker said in a prepared statement.
Porsche says it plans to invest more than $6.6 billion in electric mobility by 2022.
