The Taycan interior design: Digital, simple, sustainable

09/11/2020

With the all-electric Taycan being the newest member of the Porsche family, the designers needed an interior which matched both the driver's needs and the futuristic design of the car. This was based around the three core elements being Digital, Simple and Sustainable.

The original 911's cleanly styled dashboard from 1963 was the inspiration. The stated goal was to bring it into the present day. The cockpit signals the start of a new era with its clear structure and 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. It is focused on the driver and ensures that everything that is needed for driving is in view.

The innovative instrument cluster consists of a curved 16.8-inch screen with the rounded look that is typical of Porsche. Drivers can choose between four display modes for the instrument cluster:

  • Power meter - This display delivers the information, allowing for fast readability. A power meter replaces the rev counter in the middle instrument. 
  • Map  mode - Replaces the central power meter with a map layout.
  • Full Map mode - Intentionally omits the round instruments. In favour of a navigation map displayed across the full display.
  • Reduced - Is limited to the essential driving information such as speed, road signs and navigation instructions using a minimised arrow.

There are also small, touch-control fields at the edges of the screen for operating the light and chassis functions. The instrument cluster is, therefore, wider than the steering wheel and reminiscent of the original 911.

The wing-shaped upper and lower sections of the dashboard stretch across the entire width of the car. A central 10.9-inch infotainment display and an optional passenger display are combined to form an integrated glass band in a Black-panel look, thereby blending in visually with the interior.

Interior materials are typically Porsche with high-quality leather and various colour options. However, for the first time, Porsche now offers a leather-free interior with the state of the art Race-Tex material made from recycled polyester fibres. Its production has 80 per cent less Co2 than traditional materials.
