Porsche Electric Car – level 2

04-10-2019 15:00

Recently, car company Porsche showed its first fully electric sports car called the Taycan. It is competition to the Tesla Model S.

Porsche’s CEO explained that the car drives very fast and completed a race track in less than 8 minutes. He said that the car runs about 300 miles while it carries luggage. He added that the battery charges from 5% to 80% in 22 minutes with quick-charging technology.

Difficult words:  competition (when people or companies work to get someone’s attention to buy something), sports car (a car which people can drive as their daily car, but the car can drive very fast and work very well), quick-charging (a way to charge batteries very fast).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.
