The ideal size: what should the battery be according to Porsche


Porsche is committed to achieving carbon neutrality by 2030. The company plans to refine its battery technology to increase range, performance and stability.

RBC-Ukraine Auto reports this with a link to CarBuzz.

According to Porsche, the battery accounts for about 40 percent of the carbon dioxide produced in a single Taycan. Porsche believes that most potential electric car buyers are concerned about range. The balance between performance and range is paramount. According to Porsche statistics, the majority of its customers drive less than 80 km per day, and 80 percent of the journeys in a week do not exceed 450 km.

Porsche also claims there is a common misconception that the larger the battery, the better the performance. Through rigorous testing, Porsche has calculated that the Taycan Turbo S, equipped with an 85.1 kWh battery, drives the Nordschleife in 7:39.5 minutes. The same electric vehicle with a smaller battery, 70 kWh, only goes around seven-tenths longer. More energy and productivity are offset by more weight.

Ideal size: Porsche has calculated the optimal battery capacity for electric cars At the same time, the lighter weight allows the lighter electric vehicle to accelerate from 0 to 100 km / h in 2.9 seconds, which is 0.02 seconds faster than in a car with a large battery. The smaller battery really loses out when it comes to top speed.

After a series of tests, Porsche has found that a battery with a capacity of around 100 kWh provides the best balance between charging time, range and performance, especially when combined with an 800 Volt DC charging system.

Earlier, we reported how the shortage of microchips will change the entire auto industry. Automakers are forced to open up a new sector for themselves – the development and production of precision electronics.
