2021 Porsche Taycan Turbo S electric car unveiledAugust 19, 2020
The German automaker has unveiled the 2021 model year version of the Porsche Taycan electric sedan. As the company assures, the car has become even faster and received increased functionality.
The Taycan was introduced less than a year ago and went on sale at the end of 2019. Nevertheless, the German company is presenting an updated version of the 2021 model year. As stated in a published press release, the car has received many updates both in terms of performance, technology and appearance.
The Taycan’s Turbo S version is said to accelerate from 0 to 200 km / h in just 9.6 seconds with Launch Control off. That’s 0.2 seconds faster than the 2020 Taycan Turbo S.
The 2021 Taycan will be optionally offered with a color head-up display that can be configured to show navigation, power readings and additional driver-selected presets.
The Porsche electric sedan also gets Smartlift, which comes as standard if you order the Taycan with adaptive air suspension. What it does is allow the driver to change the ride height even while driving to maximize the comfort or efficiency of the entire car (during high-speed cornering).
Support for wireless updates allows Porsche to offer what the company calls features on demand. Basically, these are additional features that Taycan owners can get in the form of a monthly subscription. Power steering Plus is also available as a feature on request, but is offered exclusively as an option for € 320.71. All prices are valid for the German market.
Porsche will begin taking orders for the 2021 Taycan from mid-September, with the first vehicles arriving at dealerships in a month.
