If you love going fast and speeding (safely) away in the hottest cars, then this is for you. Porsche Drive and Canada’s largest car-sharing platform Turo have launched a collab that’s bringing the ultimate Taycan experience to Montréal this month.
The collab of our dreams
The Porsche Taycan launched in September 2019 in Niagara Falls, Ontario and it’s a four-door sports sedan that has the Porsche performance that we’ve come to know, love and expect. The Taycan’s features are also raising the bar when it comes to sustainability and digitization as it’s the first production vehicle that offers an 800V charging architecture, meaning it takes just 22.5 minutes to go from five to 80 percent state of charge.

“The Porsche Drive subscription and rental program was originally launched in Toronto in 2019 and has recently expanded to Vancouver,” said Marc Ouayoun, President & CEO, Porsche Cars Canada, Ltd. “We believe that the unique collaboration with Turo serves as the perfect trial model as we plan to launch the full program in Montreal in the future.”
Turo launched in Canada back in 2016 and to date, over one million people have been using the service and more than 44,000 cars have been listed on the platform. It’s a fave not only because the platform is easy to use, but it’s a great way for anyone to use or test-drive electric vehicles.
“This collaboration is not only a fantastic opportunity for Porsche to reach a new group of potential buyers in our vast community of members, but it also diversifies Turo’s electric vehicle offering,” said Cedric Mathieu, VP and Head of Turo Canada. “We’re seeing more and more people come to Turo to try an electric vehicle for the first time, and it really allows them to see how a specific car could fit into their daily life. We believe car sharing can be used as an adoption tool for electric vehicles in Canada, so we’re really excited to be able to showcase these incredible new vehicles to some of our guests.”
Get Behind the Wheel
Want to get behind the wheel of a Taycan? The Taycan models will be available for Turo members in Montréal who are aged 30 and above and can be booked for anywhere from one to 30 days through two of Turo’s top hosts. These individuals have been handpicked for their electric vehicle knowledge, passion for Porsche, and to help guide guests through everything that the Taycan has to offer.
Prices start at $365 per day and if you go on to purchase a Taycan at a Porsche Centre in Canada, that cost will be refunded in full.
