Porsche updates the Taycan. The EV has become a bit faster in terms of both acceleration and charging.
It has been almost a year since Porsche pulled the curtain off the Taycan. Is everyone a bit used to the combination of Porsche and electric? And the meaningless term Turbo? Great, now is the time for a model year update.
Porsche has made small improvements in various areas. To begin with, the Turbo S is made even faster than it already was. This allows an acceleration from 0-200 km / h in 9.6 seconds. With that, the Germans have managed to eat 0.2 seconds of the already not sick acceleration time. And that without turbo.
Improvements have also been made in the charging process. Charging with a regular charger is now possible with double power, thanks to the new optional 22 kW AC charger. By default, the Taycan about an 11 kW charger. Charging is also easier with Plug & Charge. You only have to plug in the plug without the need for a card or app. Small side note: this currently only works with Ionity in a limited number of countries, including Germany. The Netherlands will probably follow early next year.
Furthermore, the charging power can also be limited to around 200 kW when fast charging. If you are not in a hurry, you can spare the battery a bit this way. Again, you must be at the correct charging station. These include Ionity’s fast charging stations.
Porsche has also expanded the options list with a number of novelties. These include a new head-up display and a Smart Lift function, with which the car automatically rises at thresholds and the like. Porsche now also offers the option of retro-ordering comfort and assistance functions and having them installed over-the-air. These options are also available in the form of a monthly subscription.
As icing on the cake, Porsche has updated the Taycan’s color palette. Colors such as Cherry Red, Neptune Blue and Coffee Beige are now also possible. This could make for some welcome variety, as so far we’ve seen about as little variation as with Tesla.
You can order from mid-September. A month later, the updated Porsche Taycan will then be available at dealers. The 22 kW option will be available at the end of this year.
Where is that Turbo actually?
He secretly makes you greedy.
Firm car. The new head up display also looks nice. Do you also immediately have an excuse for the police because you really seem to be in a racing game
Plug and Pay, uhmm, Charge.
Will the current models currently driving around the air get this option?
22kw charging can be useful, as can charging up to 200kw …
@ louisvdd76: From an 11kW onboard charger to 22 kW does not seem possible to me. The limiting function to load 200kW DC, however. As well as the Plug & Charge fast charging.
