With Performance as standard, the new model has up to 408 hp in overboost mode and with Launch Control activated. That power is increased to 476 hp with the optional Performance Plus battery. The rated power is 326 hp and 380 hp, respectively. The new rear-wheel drive Taycan, which becomes the entry-level model, will hit dealerships in mid-March 2021. Its final price in Spain is 85,710 euros.
The youngest member of the Taycan family includes from the beginning the new elements introduced in the other versions with the improvements made for 2021. One of them is the Plug & Charge function, which allows a comfortable charge and make payments without using an app or authentication cards. The moment the cable is plugged in, the Taycan establishes encrypted communication with the Plug & Charge compatible charging station. At that moment the process starts automatically. Payments are also made automatically.
As in the other versions, the optional equipment includes the color head-up display and an on-board charger with a capacity of up to 22 kW. With Features On Demand (FoD), Taycan drivers can shop whenever they want different items or safety assistants. If they prefer, they can also simply purchase them for a specified period of time. Once these new acquisitions are delivered, they function the same as the rest of the ones that the vehicle carries in its original configuration. Online activation means there is no need to go to the workshop. Currently, this can be done with the Porsche Intelligent Range Manager (PIRM), with Power Steering Plus steering, with Active Lane Keeping Assist, and with the Porsche InnoDrive function.
Two batteries to choose from
As standard, the Taycan comes with the single-layer Performance battery, which has a gross capacity of 79.2 kWh. The two-layer Performance Plus battery is available as an option. Its gross capacity is 93.4 kWh. The autonomy, according to the WLTP homologation cycle, is up to 431 or 484 kilometers, respectively. You loved can charge from 5 to 80% in 22 and a half minutes. In addition, a charge to travel an additional 100 kilometers is done in just five minutes.
Some of the details that distinguish the Taycan from its range siblings are the aerodynamically optimized 19-inch Taycan Aero wheels and the black anodized brake calipers. The front apron, side steps and rear diffuser in black are the same as the Taycan 4S. LED headlights come standard.
