Dubai. Porsche Middle East and Africa FZE officially kicked off its regional launch for the all-new Taycan with a special animation on the side of the Burj Khalifa , the largest single display surface in the world.
A visually exciting light show, covering a total area of 33,000 square metres, portrayed the brand’s most important milestones from the Lohner-Porsche revealed in 1900 to the cutting-edge Taycan. Standing at 828 metres high, the iconic tower is the tallest building in the world and provided a unique setting to announce the long-awaited arrival of the first fully electric vehicle from Porsche.
Dr Manfred Braeunl, Chief Executive Officer at Porsche Middle East and Africa FZE, said: “Electricity has been running through Porsche veins from day one and the brand is a pioneer in shaping the mobility of tomorrow with innovative products setting the benchmark for the industry. The all-new Taycan is a culmination of over 70 years of experience building sports cars, merged with incredible new driving technologies. But first and foremost, it is a true Porsche offering pure emotion and extraordinary driving pleasure.”

Values are provided for comparison only. To the extent that fuel and energy consumption or CO₂ values are given as ranges, these do not relate to a single, individual car and do not constitute part of the offer. Optional features and accessories can change relevant vehicle parameters such as weight, rolling resistance and aerodynamics which may result in a change in fuel or energy consumption and CO₂ values. Vehicle loading, topography, weather and traffic conditions, as well as individual driving styles, can all affect the actual fuel consumption, energy consumption, electrical range, and CO₂ emissions of a car.
