The Taycan sedan is available in four variants – Taycan RWD, 4S, Turbo and the Turbo S.
Porsche introduced the Taycan sedan in India on 12 November 2021.
Taycan models use synchronous motors (one at each axle). Unlike regular electric vehicles, the Taycan features a two-speed automatic transmission. The first gear provides improved acceleration while cruising or at higher speeds and the transmission shifts to the second gear for higher efficiency. The first gear activates only in Sport and Sport Plus modes.
Porsche offers two different battery packs across the Taycan lineup: 79.2kWh and 93.4kWh. The range and power output vary depending on the variant and the battery sizes. When it comes to charging, the Taycan can be charged using AC and DC chargers. It is claimed that the Taycan is the first EV to support 800-volt super-fast charging.
Exterior and Design
The Taycan sedan is a very low-slung four-door electric sports car. In terms of the design, the Taycan features Porsche signature four-pointed daytime running lights, matrix LED headlights, rear lights with an LED light bar and charging ports on either side of the fenders. Meanwhile, it also has a coupé-style sloping roofline.
Interior and Features
The Taycan’s cockpit is inspired by the original 911 from 1963. However, this interior features ultramodern elements such as three displays: a 16.8-inch instrument cluster, a 10.9-inch infotainment touchscreen and an 8.4-inch climate control touchscreen. Additionally, it also comes with an optional co-passenger display. Apart from the displays, Porsche offers a variety of interior upholstery and colour choices. What is more, the upholstery is made of sustainable materials.
The electric sports car gets a host of features such as electronically adjustable air inlets, three-stage adaptive rear spoiler, up to 270kW charging capability, intelligent range manager, adaptive air suspension, rear-axle steering, dynamic chassis control Sport, torque vectoring plus, active suspension management, ADAS and night vision assist.
