Porsche's first all-electric sports car, the Taycan, will celebrate its world premiere on 4 September from 2 pm GMT – on three continents at the same time.
The premiere locations stand for three forms of sustainable energy and are located in the most important sales markets of the new electric sports car: Niagara Falls at the border between the US state of New York and the Canadian province of Ontario represents hydropower. A solar farm in Neuhardenberg near Berlin represents solar power. The wind farm on Pingtan Island, around 150 kilometres from the Chinese city of Fuzhou in the province of Fujian, represents wind power.
The global event lasting about half an hour will be moderated by long-standing Formula 1 driver and Porsche brand ambassador Mark Webber from Berlin. The live stream will be broadcast in five languages (English, Mandarin, Spanish, French and German) on NewsTV and in the Porsche Newsroom allowing fans and interested people around the world to witness the spectacular reveal. The world premiere will be available as a video on demand on afterwards.
You can also join us at our Centre where everyone is welcome to watch the Live Stream on a cinema screen display, enjoy some refreshments and have the chance to chat to our team about this exciting development for Porsche.
* Data determined in accordance with the measurement method required by law. Since September 01, 2018 all new cars are approved in accordance with the Worldwide Harmonized Light Vehicles Test Procedure (WLTP), a more realistic test procedure to measure fuel consumption and CO₂ emissions. You can find more information on WLTP at www.porsche.com/wltp. From 01 January 2019, all fuel consumption figures are shown as determined in accordance with WLTP. CO₂ figures will be shown as NEDC-equivalent values, as CO₂ based taxation will continue to be based on an NEDC value (derived from WLTP) until 06 April 2020. Fuel economy and CO₂ emission figures are only intended as a means of comparing different types of vehicles tested under the same test cycle. New WLTP homologated vehicles are therefore not directly comparable with any vehicles tested under NEDC.
Values are provided for comparison only. To the extent that fuel consumption or CO₂ values are given as ranges, these do not relate to a single, individual car and do not constitute part of the offer. Extra features and accessories (attachments, tyre formats etc.) can change relevant vehicle parameters such as weight, rolling resistance and aerodynamics which may result in a change in fuel consumption and CO₂ values. Additionally, weather and traffic conditions, as well as individual driving styles, can all affect the actual fuel consumption, electricity consumption, and CO₂ emissions of a car.
