The upcoming Porsche Taycan will be able to receive over 60 miles of range from a 4-minute charge, Porsche said Monday in a press release.

Porsche plans to release the Taycan by the end of 2019.

That charging time would be the fastest available today, the automaker said, exceeding Tesla's supercharging stations, which can charge a vehicle's battery to about 80% of its capacity in around 30 minutes. (Tesla's vehicles have a range of between around 265 miles and 334 miles, depending on the model and trim.) The Taycan's proposed maximum charging speed would be possible when using DC fast-chargers that support charging rates of up to 350 kilowatts, which will be available at 120 of the 191 Porsche dealers in the US, as well as charging stations operated by Electrify America.
