Those anticipating the arrival of Porsche’s first all-electric vehicle will have a bit more to be jazzed about. The automaker announced that it has teamed up with Apple Music to create the first-ever fully integrated music-streaming experience in a vehicle, and it’ll launch with the 2020 Taycan.
From the vehicle’s touchscreen, Apple Music subscribers will be able to stream more than 50 million songs — ad-free — as well as thousands of curated playlists, and the Beats 1 global livestream with three-year complimentary in-car internet data. Users will also be able to use custom voice controls to request songs, albums, playlists or radio stations on Apple Music, as well as create their own custom station on Apple Music from any song you find while listening to broadcast radio.
According to Porsche, the Taycan will have a zero-to-62-mph time under 3.5 seconds, with the ability to hit 124 mph in about 12 seconds. It uses an 800-volt electrical system and has an anticipated range of 310 miles. Porsche says the all-wheel-drive sports car will make its debut in September and go on sale at the end of 2019.
