Wayne Gerdes – CleanMPG – March 18, 2022 Porsche Taycan Turbo S at Niagara Falls Here is a ridiculous thought experiment about power, energy, and how far you can drive an electric vehicle on it. Please check my math at your earliest convenience to make sure. Niagara Falls generates a total of 4.9 GW of Power between the US and Canadian Power Stations There are 8,760 hours in a year Over a year, 42.924 TWh of Energy is generated 42.924 TWh = 42,924 GWh = 42,924,000 MWh = 42,924,000,000 KWh A Porsche Taycan takes 85 KWh to charge from flat to full and provides 225-miles of range Niagara Falls 42.924 TWh output over a full year could charge a Taycan 505 million times or enough to drive 113 billion miles The distance from the Sun to Pluto is 3.7 billion miles A Porsche Taycan could be driven from the Sun to Pluto and back 15 times with the energy generated in just one year from Niagara Falls Stuttgart, Germany -- Over the past year, Porsche has again become one of the world’s most profitable automobile OEMs with new all-time high sales revenue and operating profit.
