Yowza.By this time next week, we’ll finally have seen Porsche’s long-awaited Taycan electric sedan. Ahead of time, there are new details still spilling out about the electric car, and this tidbit is one for the power-hungry driver.Per a drive preview from Autocar, the range-topping Porsche Taycan supposedly sports an overboost function that will help the car produce over 700 horsepower for a period of time. That’s Dodge Challenger Hellcat territory, minus any engine emissions. Reportedly, this range-topping car will be split into Taycan Turbo and Taycan Turbo S designations — a goofy nomenclature considering there are no turbos onboard, but I digress.The overboost function activates for 2.5 seconds to unlock 700-plus horsepower and supposedly helps send the electric car from 0 to 60 mph in under 3 seconds. Porsche has long been keen to point out the Taycan will absolutely house the company’s spirit and performance, and so far, the German marque appears to be delivering.It’s likely the overboost function played a key part in the car’s 7:42 Nurburgring Nordschleife run. While the lap time didn’t set any overall lap records, it is the fastest four-door electric car around the 12.8-mile circuit. Porsche also showcased the fact its upcoming electric sedan can go from 0 to 124 mph and back in just 10 seconds — multiple times in a testament to the battery-electric powertrain’s grunt.Without the overboost, we’re likely looking at around 600 hp for the range-topping Taycan along with a 300-mile range. Expect other models to fill the lineup with less performance and shorter ranges. We’ll have the full details when Porsche is ready to show the car off in September.

Sono Typically, if you had moss in the interior of your car, that would be considered a bad thing. That’s not necessarily the case for this small, solar-powered electric vehicle from German startup Sono.The Sono Sion uses the moss, which is covered with a transparent panel, thankfully, and according to a report Thursday by Electrek, it’s part of the Sion’s cabin air filtering system. Unlike the moss inside Goodyear’s Oxygene tire concept, this moss has kicked the proverbial bucket, but because of its structure, it’s still a good filter.The Sion was conceived as a low-cost EV and debuted back in March with a 35 kilowatt-hour battery and a body covered in solar panels, but this is the first we’re seeing of its interior. The rest of the passenger cabin is pretty sparse, with a small digital instrument binnacle in front of the driver and a Tesla Model 3-like central screen sprouting from the dash.sono-motors-sion-side-profile-frontEnlarge ImageIn addition to the mossy dash, the Sono Sion is slathered in solar panels to help keep its 35 kWh battery topped up. Sono The Sion was initially marketed for the low, low price of $18,000 but — and this might be a little shocking (pun intended) — the battery pack costs extra. That is estimated to cost an additional $10,500 if bought outright, or there would be a monthly fee. I know that sounds weird, but it’s not unheard of in Europe — the Renault Zoe is sold this way.It’s unlikely that we’ll ever see the Sono Sion on our roads here in the US, but the company says it should enter production for Europe sometime in the latter half of 2020.
