There are more ways than one to pronounce words. Take tomato and tomato, for example, you read that two different ways eh? Well, Porsche is adding to the list of mispronounced car names because apparently, the Porsche Taycan is not pronounced as “Tay-kan”, it’s “Tai-kan”.

The name Taycan is composed of two terms of Turkic origins which can be roughly translated as “soul of a spirited young horse”, exactly what this 600 hp all-electric Porsche is. The Taycan is motivated by two permanently synchronous motors, one on each axle, which allows it to sprint from 0 to 100 km/h in under 3.5 seconds and 0 to 200 km/h in under 12 seconds.

Porsche has also designed the 800-volt lithium-ion battery pack to feature fast-charging compatibility which will allow the car to gain 400 km of range in 15 minutes. The maximum real-world driving range is expected to hover around the 500 km mark. The Porsche Taycan is expected to hit the market in 2019.

Now, Porsche, where’s the video on how to pronounce the Porsche Cayenne?
