Porsche Celebrates 100,000th Taycan EVs Produced
Porsche surpassed 100,000 Taycan electric vehicles (EVs) produced since it launched in 2019, as detailed in a press release shared by the automaker on Wednesday.
The 100,000th vehicle produced was a Neptune Blue Taycan Turbo S assembled at Porsche’s main Zuffenhausen, Germany plant, and it’s destined for delivery to a customer in the United Kingdom.
“We are very pleased to have reached this milestone in production history so quickly – despite the recent challenges posed by the semiconductor shortage and the volatile Covid situation,” said Vice President of the Taycan Model Line, Kevin Giek. “With the Taycan, we have made a decidedly successful start in the electric age.”

Currently, the largest three markets for the Porsche Taycan are the U.S., China and the UK/Ireland. Porsche offers the vehicle in three different body styles: the base-level Taycan sports sedan, the Taycan Cross Turismo and the Taycan Sport Turismo.
In August, the Porsche Taycan Turbo S set a new lap record for electric vehicles (EVs) at the Nürburgring Racetrack with driver Lars Kern behind the wheel.
The Taycan has been spotted in drag races with the Tesla Model S Plaid, both debuting the impressive acceleration and speeds EVs can reach amidst a larger transition away from internal combustion engines (ICEs).
