The new Porsche Taycan - Purist exterior design with Porsche DNA
With its purist design, the Taycan signals the dawn of a new era. At the same time, it unmistakably bears the Porsche design DNA. From the front, the electric sports car appears particularly wide and flat, with strongly curved fenders. The silhouette is defined by the sporty roofline, which slopes down toward the rear. The side section with its strong sculpting is also characteristic. The slim cabin, a strongly indented C-pillar and the pronounced shoulders of the fenders result in a strong emphasis on the rear end that is typical of the brand. Added to this are innovative elements such as the Porsche lettering in glass look. It is integrated into the light strip at the rear.
An array of sensors integrated on the vehicle make the CUPRA Formentor e-HYBRID one of the easiest and safest to live with in daily life. Highlights include Travel assist, Side and Exit assist, Emergency assist, Predictive ACC and exit warning. The technology mix delivers high levels of safety, but systems are integrated to bring convenience without the feeling of control being taken away from the driver. An important consideration in a CUPRA, a brand where the driver’s needs are a central priority. The result is a vehicle that can meet the dynamic needs of the CUPRA brand, while providing the safety standards demanded by the market.
