Digital, clear, sustainable: the interior of the new Porsche Taycan
Porsche is entering a new era with the new Taycan and the brand’s first all-electric sports car is setting standards in interior design. Classic design features have been reinterpreted and brought into the digital age. The cockpit signals the start of a new era with its clear structure and a completely new construction. It is clearly driver-focused.
The instrument panel has a clean, minimalist and ultra-modern design, and operating the controls is quick and free from distractions. The free-standing, curved instrument cluster forms the highest point on the dashboard. The innovative instrument cluster consists of a curved 16.8-inch screen with the rounded look that's typical of Porsche.
All user interfaces have been completely re-designed for the Taycan. The number of traditional hardware controls, such as switches and buttons, have been greatly reduced. Instead, control is intelligent and intuitive – via touch operation or a voice control function that responds to the command “Hey Porsche”.
The elevated centre console intensifies the feeling of a low seating position, as you would expect from a Porsche. It features a large 8.4-inch touch panel with haptic feedback. This allows the air-conditioning settings to be altered directly. A reduction to the essentials and a clear approach are also evident for the air vents. These have been fully modernised and can be operated intuitively.
Integrated handwriting recognition also allows quick address inputs.
Every detail has been reduced to the essentials.
Like the Porsche 918, the Taycan has a compact direction selector switch in the instrument panel instead of the classic selector lever.
