High voltage: Porsche electric motors explained


With the pioneering drive of the Porsche Taycan, Zuffenhausen continues its tradition of innovation. But many people wonder exactly how the electric motor in the Porsche Taycan actually works...

If you fully depress the accelerator pedal of a Porsche Taycan Turbo S, you will experience 12,000 Nm of torque on all four wheels at once. This concentrated power is discharged in full without delay and the thrust from the two electric motors on the front and rear axles remains virtually unchanged up to top speed.

At Porsche, innovation has always meant pushing technology to the extreme. In this case, that means exploiting the potential of the electric drive in a way that no one has ever done before. Why not find out more about the history of the Porsche electric motor and the Taycan.
