Porsche is releasing the EPA-rated range numbers for its Taycan lineup, and nearly every trim sees an increase. Porsche utilized software updates to eek out the extra range, and the beauty of all of it is that current Taycan owners also receive the software updates. That means every Taycan out there goes farther per charge than it did a year ago. We like that.
The only Taycan that didn’t get a range increase was the GTS sedan and Sport Turismo. When those cars reached U.S. soil earlier in the year, they already had the updated software installed that improved the overall range.
Here’s how it all breaks down:
|Variant||EPA est. range 2022||EPA est. range 2023||Improvement|
|Taycan sedan w/ Performance Battery Plus||225||242||7.5%|
|Taycan 4S sedan||199||206||3.5%|
|Taycan 4S sedan w/ Performance Battery Plus||227||235||3.5%|
|Taycan GTS sedan||246||246||n/a|
|Taycan Turbo sedan||212||238||12.2%|
|Taycan Turbo S sedan||201||222||10.4%|
|Taycan 4 Cross Turismo||215||235||9.3%|
|Taycan 4S Cross Turismo||215||230||6.9%|
|Taycan GTS Sport Turismo||233||233||n/a|
|Taycan Turbo Cross Turismo||204||233||14.2%|
|Taycan Turbo S Cross Turismo||202||222||9.9%|
It’s also worth noting that outlets like Edmunds far exceeded the EPA-range number in its independent testing. It appears Porsche likes to overdeliver, which is something we can appreciate. We also applaud Porsche for making these updates available to older cars, for free, because it’d be easy to make it a paid upgrade.
More range for no more money sounds like a good deal to us, but what say you?
