The Porsche Taycan is a vehicle that inspires. An all-electric vehicle with inspired by motorsport and with unmatched performance.
Electric vehicles continue to be one of the fastest growing segments of the automotive industry and the Porsche Taycan is leading the charge. Battery Electric Vehicles (BEV) drivers and even average drivers are getting curious about what sets the Taycan apart, which is why Porsche teamed up with the world’s foremost expert in un-complicating the complicated: Bill Nye The Science Guy.
Throughout the five-part series, Nye breaks down complex topics for the viewers at the Porsche Experience Center in Los Angeles. Using simple terms, Nye walks viewers through the innovative technology behind the Taycan as well as the one-of-a-kind design and performance features that make it exceptional to drive.
As a well-known engineer and science educator, Nye’s years of putting scientific principles into terms people can easily understand, and his sense of humor, came in very handy as he highlights what sets the Taycan apart. Nye covered such features as the 800-volt battery, clever aerodynamics, the added-value of its regenerative braking, and repeatable performance.
For example, in under 2 minutes, Nye summarizes why the Taycan comes equipped with two gears. Most electric vehicles have only a single gear but through Nye’s succinct explanation, he enlightens that a sports gear helps get the car up to speed faster and is easier on the battery.
Bringing his own ‘Bill Nye’ touch and signature enthusiasm for science, Nye also set up a track demonstration to help explain how the kinetic energy can be converted and then stored into a Taycan battery. Here again, Nye points out how the Taycan differs from other BEV, as most vehicles regenerate up to 80 kW while the Taycan achieves up to 265kW.
As consumer interest grows and the percentage of BEV vehicles on the road continues to increase, drivers should be educated on the technologies that make them work. If you have any questions regarding the all-electric Taycan, please contact Porsche Centre Kelowna or ask Bill Nye the Science Guy!
