High Voltage – Porsche electric motors explained

With the pioneering drive of the Porsche Taycan, Zuffenhausen continues its tradition of innovation. This is how electric motors work in detail.

The driver and passengers are pressed into the upholstery in a manner that almost takes their breath away when the top model of the electric sports car unleashes its collective torque of 12,000 Nm on all four wheels at once (Taycan Turbo S: CO2 emissions combined 0 g/km, Electricity consumption combined 28.5 kwh/100 km).

The concentrated power is discharged in full without any delay—and the thrust from the two electric motors on the front and rear axles remains virtually unchanged up to top speed.

This dose of adrenaline is the active ingredient in Porsche’s unique drive technology. It’s no coincidence that the renowned Center of Automotive Management (CAM) declared the Taycan the world’s most innovative model of 2020. At Porsche, innovation has always meant pushing technologies to the extreme.

In this case, that means nothing less than exploiting the potential of the electric drive in a way that no one has ever done before.
