How much can a Porsche Taycan Turbo S charge on a single charge?January 15, 2020
According to measurements, the Porsche Taycan Turbo S electric car can travel up to 309 km on a single charge – tests were conducted according to the standards of the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). It is noteworthy that this result is significantly lower than the originally stated.
About a month after the publication of the “fuel” performance indicators for the German electric Porsche Taycan sedan in the Turbo version, the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) announced the official ratings for the more powerful model performance – Turbo S. And they are a little disappointing.
The total range of the electric vehicle on fully charged batteries is 309 kilometers, which is slightly less than that of the Taycan Turbo, for which the EPA certified cruising range is 323 km.
Again, this figure is well below the 452 km figure that the California Air Resources Board (CARB) reported earlier this year.
We are wondering if anxiety over the range of the Taycan electric sedan will affect the choice of customers, but the truth is that this model was never intended to have a large supply of energy and drive a huge amount of km from point A to point B. This is a sports car in every sense, for which dynamic performance is important – the Turbo S can accelerate to the first hundred in just 2.6 seconds thanks to its electric installation with a capacity of 751 horsepower.
It will be very interesting to see the official EPA figures for the less powerful Taycan 4S. There is no doubt that higher EPA ratings combined with its lower price can make it one of the most coveted Taycan versions on the market.
Not so long ago, our publication wrote that Porsche has patented the appearance of its flying electric car. The German company Porsche and the American aviation concern Boeing plan to unite to create a premium electric flying car.
