Porsche Taycan: 270kW charging, first production car to use 800V architecture and intelligent battery

Our coverage of the all-new Porsche Taycan continues with a closer look at the 800V internal and charging infrastructure on-board to streamline and future-proof the Taycan. The Porsche Taycan will launch as the first production car to utilise an 800V operating and charging infrastructure. It's a huge step forward for electric vehicles because it allows faster and higher capacity charging without the need for thicker, heavier cables – good for a weight saving of around 4.0kg.
