Porsche has plans to make more changes in the Taycan model by removing the conservative tag rendered to its power plant. The Stuttgart crew has stated that it has plans to start working on a four-motor powertrain for electric SUVs. This new powertrain is something that the Taycan may have never seen before. The carmakers are not just trying to improve the quarter-mile times but instead designing engines to help gain more control while speeding. The plan is to have one motor each for the wheels to help balance the power distribution based on the needs. The four-motor powertrain will help have extra control on slippery roads or around the corners at the time of speeding. The people carrier should have the agility of a sports car as well as the safety of the driver as the first priority.
The technology does not ask for a complete redesigning or supplementary sensors but instead for a software control update to redistribute power within milliseconds rather than the usual limited-slip differential set up in gas cars. Porsche confirms that it has been testing the software from the past 2 Years. The carmaker has announced that its Macan EV will be having the new system. It would not be surprising if the company plans to have it in larger SUVs whether a Cayenne’s EV variant or a completely new design. The new system will definitely help all the electric SUVs get unrestricted data that the combustion-powered vehicles are not able to provide.
Similarly, Porsche has confirmed that it is planning on going all-electric in the future. According to the luxury carmaker President Klaus Zellmer, the company wants to begin the transition phase in the car industry. The customers expect more sustainability from luxury cars and Porsche confirms that it will have plugs in every car produced in or after 2025. At the second annual The Year Ahead: Luxury summit, Porsche also stated that its legendary 911 will be the last in its line to go electric. The company plans to attract new and younger customers to go green at the Super Bowl ad in 2020.
