The demand for the Taycan is growing

The Porsche Taycan can now be painted in the ‘90s classic Rubystar Red or in bright Acid Green.

Which would be your preference?

“The latest generation of Taycan impresses with seamless smartphone connectivity, which now includes Android Auto,” said Kevin Giek, the vice president of the Taycan model line. “Our all-electric Taycan range is growing and thriving. The new Cross Turismo, which was added to the line-up in spring, is proving extremely popular with our customers, as has been shown by the excellent number of orders being taken for it.”

The sixth generation of Porsche Communication Management (PCM) has been fitted to the Taycan since its introduction. Android Auto is now also integrated in the PCM, along with Apple CarPlay support for iPhone. This means that smartphones with the Google Android operating system are now also supported. Selected phone functions and smartphone apps that do not adversely affect driving safety can therefore now be operated via PCM 6.0 or the Google Assistant voice commands.

The layout and operating system have also been revamped slightly: there are now five menu options instead of three on the left side of the central display and the icons can be arranged individually.

A further highlight is Porsche Destination Charging. With this exclusive service, customers can charge their electric or plug-in hybrid Porsche models free of charge at particularly popular destinations. It already offers more than 100 AC charging points in 12 countries across the Middle East, Africa and India, at locations such as selected hotels, restaurants, airports, shopping malls, sports clubs and marinas – and further expansion of the network is in full swing.

The demand for the Taycan is growing with no fewer than 20 000 vehicles being delivered in the first half of 2021.
