Porsche’s 718 Models Set to Go All-Electric In Mid-Decade

Porsche’s 718 models are set to become all-electric by the mid-decade, marking a major milestone in the German automaker’s electrification strategy. Porsche will be rolling out the electric versions of the 718 models in a staggered release, with the Cayman and Boxster versions to be released first, followed by the GTS and Targa versions.

The 718 models are part of a larger plan to make Porsche a fully electric brand by 2025, a key component of its “Strategy 2025” initiative. The initiative also calls for the launch of the all-electric Taycan sports car, which is scheduled to go on sale by the end of this year.

In order to meet its 2025 goal, Porsche is making significant investments in electric technology. The company has committed to investing €6 billion (about $7.2 billion) into electric powertrain and battery technology over the next five years, and is also investing in the expansion of its electric charging infrastructure.

Porsche’s electric 718 models will come equipped with electric motors and lithium-ion batteries, and will feature a range of up to 300 kilometers (186 miles). The vehicles will also have a top speed of up to 250 kilometers per hour (155 miles per hour).

In addition to the performance benefits of electric power, the 718 models are also expected to offer improved fuel economy. Porsche expects the electric vehicles to have a range of up to 500 kilometers (310 miles) per charge, and the company is aiming for the vehicles to have a fuel efficiency rating of around 100 kilometers per liter (235 miles per gallon).

The 718 models will be the first all-electric vehicles in Porsche’s lineup, but they won’t be the last. The company is planning to launch a number of all-electric vehicles in the coming years, including a hybrid version of its iconic 911 sports car. Porsche is also working on a fully autonomous driving system that it plans to launch in 2021.

With the launch of its electric 718 models, Porsche is showing that it is serious about its commitment to electrification. In a few short years, the company will be able to offer a full range of all-electric vehicles, from the performance-oriented 718 models to the luxury Taycan. It’s an exciting time for Porsche, and for electric vehicle enthusiasts.
