Performance in the New Electric Porsche Taycan
The electric-Taycan is powered by two efficient electric motors located in the front and rear. With this placement, the Taycan offers all-wheel drive and traction control for better handling. In fact, with this system, if one of the wheels has more slip, the electric motors are able to correct and regulate it in just a fraction of a second.
