Porsche showed off the “affordable” variation of the Taycan model

At a motor show in Los Angeles, the German corporation showed the Porsche Taycan electric sports car in a 4S variation.

At first, the brand showed Taycan exclusively in the most productive and expensive versions: Turbo (680 hp) and Turbo S (761 hp), now the brand has shown a variation of 4S, outwardly different in the presence of a different shape of the front air intake, another diffuser, exclusive 19-inch wheels and red brake calipers.

  The new model has an all-wheel drive system and has 2 electric motors, but the main technical feature is a more compact synchronous power unit on the rear axle, which has a length of 130 mm. At the same time, the 2-speed gearbox is saved.

 The maximum performance of the Taycan 4S, with a Performance battery of 79.2 kW / h, is 530 hp. In addition, a battery of 93.4 kW / h is proposed, in which case the peak power will increase to 571 hp.

Charging performance changes depending on the battery: 225 kW for the standard version and 270 kW for the Plus variation. Mileage on a single charge will also vary: 407 and 463 km according to the WLTP standard, respectively. But the choice of the battery does not affect the dynamic characteristics: the novelty can accelerate to the first 100 km/h in just 4 seconds and accelerate to 250 km / h as much as possible.

 The new product will appear on the market in January 2020, while at the same time, the price has been announced exclusively for America: at least 104,000 dollars against 151,000 dollars for the Turbo variation

Also at the Los Angeles Auto Show, an electric Lexus LF-30 was shown. The prototype has an unusual design and is designed to show the brand’s vision in terms of electric vehicles.
