‘We would like to offer you a job. You get paid more than with your current employer, really. We don’t say how much. It could be a tenner, or a rug. Remains a surprise.’ Would you take this offer? It’s a bit crazy. The range of the Porsche Taycan has changed due to a number of interesting technical interventions, but the brand does not want to say by how much. The technical interventions are for both the Taycan and the Taycan Cross Turismo.
‘The renewed Porsche Taycan will not be homologated again, so there will be no new WLTP values. But with daily use, the actual range of the new versions has increased,” says Porsche. On paper, the range is therefore unchanged, but in practice the Taycan comes a little further. The press release also does not reveal what kind of figures we should think about. Keep it exciting, shall we say. According to the statement, the range of the Taycan is approximately 350 to 450 kilometers, depending on the chosen version.
Why is the range of the Porsche Taycan increasing?
In Normal and Range driving modes, the front electric motor is now decoupled. As a result, there is no frictional resistance. Residual heat from electrical components is also used more efficiently to regulate the temperature of the battery. Another change concerns the preheating of the battery. To charge faster, you could already preheat the battery in the Taycan, but the temperature is now slightly higher.
More colors, parking assistant and Android auto
The redesigned Taycan can now park itself without a driver. Via your smartphone you can instruct the Taycan to park in a space or in a garage. In addition, Android users can now officially use Android Auto. In addition to the seventeen standard colors, Porsche will add 65 additional exterior colors, including the Rubystar red you see above. This color was on the Porsche 911 964 Carrera RS.
