Porsche’s Mission E sports car has become the Taycan, with the German manufacturer having confirmed the official name of its first all-electric vehicle.

The name, which translates to “lively young horse” in German, was revealed as part of the “70 years of Porsche Sports Cars” ceremony on Friday.

“Our new electric sports car is strong and dependable; it’s a vehicle that can consistently cover long distances and that epitomizes freedom,” said Porsche AG chairman Oliver Blume.

The Taycan, which features a total output of 600 horsepower and more than 300 miles of range on a single charge, will go into production next year.

Multiple variations of the car, including a sports utility version, are planned to be produced.

Porsche plans to invest more than €6 billion into electromobility by 2020, €1 billion for the electrification and hybridization of its existing product range.
