In single propulsion, the new Porsche Taycan is available in two battery configurations. The fourth variant of the German electric sports car, it will arrive in dealerships in mid-March.
At the start of the year, the Taycan family is growing. After the Turbo S, the Turbo and the Taycan 4S, Porsche offers a fourth variant to its first electric car. While we spoke yesterday of the name of Taycan 2S, it is quite simply by “Taycan” that Porsche designates its new model.
Two batteries to choose from
Unsurprisingly, the Taycan inherits the battery configurations of its big sisters. In its basic version, Performance, the electric sports car from Porsche incorporates a battery of 79.2 kWh of gross capacity for a range of 431 km. In Performance Battery Plus, the capacity of the pack climbs to 93.4 kWh for a range of 484 kilometers.
Under load, the performance differs slightly between the two models. In direct current (DC), count 225 kW for the basic version and 270 kW for the long-range version. This means that both batteries can be charged from 5 to 80% SoC in 22.5 minutes. As for the other variants, it will be possible to integrate an optional 22 kW charger for AC charging.
On the engine side, both versions are configured for propulsion. Here, too, the values differ depending on the size of the battery. While the Performance climbs to 300 kW in overboost mode with Launch Control, the Performance Plus climbs to 350 kW. The performance of both versions is at the same level. The 0 to 100 km / h is ensured in 5.4 seconds while the top speed climbs to 230 km / h.
