The Porsche Taycan is the first electric sedan to seriously challenge the Tesla Model S, and comes with a seductive design and fine interior.
Standard features include a curved digital instrument display, and a 10.9″ infotainment screen. A secondary screen in front of the front passenger is optional.
Despite the Turbo name, neither car has a turbo because they’re full electric vehicles.
The Taycan Turbo S has two electric motors making a total of 560kW (751hp) on overboost, and 1,050Nm (774 lb-ft) for 0-100km/h time of 2.8s, and an electronically limited top speed of 260km/h.
Its 93.4kWh battery has a WLTP range of 388km (241mi).
The Taycan Turbo only has 500kW (671hp) and 850Nm (627 lb-ft) from its two electric motors. Its 0-100km/h time is 3.2s.
Both cars are the first electric cars to use a 800V system, and on the fastest charger can be topped up to 80% within 22.5 minutes.
A 2-speed transmission is standard on both Taycan Turbo variants, and allows for the car to repeatedly go at high speed without overworking the battery.
