This month pupils from Canon Slade School came to visit us with their project car the 'Taycanon' to show us how far they've come since we last saw it, as it is now almost complete!
The aim of the project is to promote and influence students to consider a STEM (Science Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) career.
In partnership with GreenPower, this electric vehicle has been built and developed by the school and, once finished, will be raced on the track against other schools, colleges and universities. The car has come on a long way and Porsche Centre Bolton is very impressed with the team from Canon Slade School. We'll keep you posted with updates on their race results.
*Data determined in accordance with the measurement method required by law. Since 01 September 2018 all new cars are approved in accordance with the Worldwide Harmonized Light Vehicles Test Procedure (WLTP). You can find more information on WLTP at
. From 01 January 2019, all fuel consumption figures are shown as determined in accordance with WLTP. CO₂ figures will be shown as NEDC-equivalent values, as CO₂ based taxation will continue to be based on an NEDC value (derived from WLTP) until 06 April 2020. For Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicle (PHEV) range and Equivalent All Electric Range (EAER) figures are determined with the battery fully charged, using a combination of both battery power and fuel.
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.
