Michael Steiner, member of the executive board, research and development commented on the awards saying “This double win in the categories World Performance Car and World Luxury Car underlines what we wanted to achieve when we developed the Taycan. We wanted to create a driver-focused, fully electric sports car that can take on any performance car. At the same time, we focused on uncompromised everyday usability and contemporary, digital luxury and comfort for four passengers. We are delighted that the WCOTY jury rewards these efforts.”
Oliver Blume, Chairman of the Executive Board of Porsche AG further speaking said “We are so happy to have been awarded these accolades. They reflect the positive feedback from our customers and are a great incentive for our future work,” says. “We see ourselves as pioneers of sustainable mobility and have brought an emotive as well as highly innovative sports car to the road with the Taycan – fully electric and 100 percent Porsche.”
