Component of the “futuristic” Porsche Taycan produced at MCG

The 100% electric car segment is about to receive a new icon, and MCG is proud to contribute to the production of the concept that that will give rise to the first purely electric sports car in Porsche’s history. The new Taycan (former name Mission E) is the that the German…

…luxury brand claims to be a true “tribute to tomorrow”, and for which MCG has developed and is producing a component that belongs to an air suspension system that integrates the structure of the vehicle.

 

This component is designated as the Exterior Guide to an air suspension system

…of the Porsche Taycan and can be identified in the image below. MCG does not supply Porsche directly, since the part in question is assembled on the suspension system before integrating the vehicle, but it is of great importance for the company to be part of a project of this magnitude…

…and in the context of a car as disruptive as the new Mission E.

 

“Ambition” is what the new Porsche Taycan does not miss, both in performance and in the propulsion system, a car based exclusively on “clean” energy. A pair of permanently synchronized magnetic motors generate power…

…above 600 hp and make it possible to accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in only 3.5 seconds. Porsche’s estimated range of autonomy for the new Taycan is close to 500 km, and the German manufacturer also guarantees that 15 minutes of electrical charge is sufficient to accumulate 80% of the…

…capacity of the installed batteries.

 

Get to know everything about the component manufactured by MCG for the Porsche’s prototype – and find out all about the fantastic Taycan, which is expected to go into production as early as 2019 – through the complete Case Study we prepared on the subject.

At the official session at MCG mind for metal were all the project managers from each company that take part in the consortium as well as several business partners and all the MCG’s technicians and collaborators involved…

…in the process, from development to production.

 

By taking part in the project, MCG mind for metal strengthens several technological partnerships that impact on the railway market and help the development of recycled synthetic cores for the application in flooring systems, reinforcing product design and solutions.

 

On the other hand,

The CoMMUTe project triggered 21 coordination meetings, a submitted patent and the creation of three prototypes and conceptual mockups. This included over…

…5,000 hours of structural modelling and calculation, 770 hours of development and design of the manufacturing facilities, 2,500 hours of electronic assembly and 1,270 hours of manufacturing of the various prototypes. There were 25 operational technicians involved in 356 tests, in which 15 new methods and three new equipment were used.
