Smith shared footage to his YouTube channel from the promotional stunt for his latest movie.

The car gives a maximum speed of 162 MPH (Miles per hour) and can reach up to 100 km/h speed in 2.8 seconds. Porsche Taycan has been equipped with an 800-volt system, suggesting it can be charged quickly. The car has four-point LED headlights, lateral air curtains and a 16.8-inch curved display as well.
