Even with 2,300 kg, Porsche Taycan Turbo S is agile in curves, even on narrow roads.

In the more expensive versions, Turbo and Turbo S, the Taycan has 625 hp. The difference is that the start-up mode increases the power to 680 hp on Turbo and 761 hp on Turbo S. The range is 450 km and 412 km, respectively.

In this last configuration, the model is able to accelerate from 0 to 100 km / h in 2.8 seconds, with a maximum of 260 km / h. G1 evaluated this version in Germany a month after launch.

Unlike its competitors, which entered the electric SUV market, Porsche chose a 4-door sedan. It is 4.96 m long and 2.90 m wheelbase.

The entry-level version, Turbo S, is the closest to rivals. Its 435 hp makes it more powerful than Audi E-Tron, Jaguar I-Pace and Mercedes-Benz EQC. The autonomy, without considering the extra battery pack, is shorter.

With the exception of EQC, the other models have already been evaluated by G1 (see the videos below). Of the trio, the Porsche is the one that most delivers driving pleasure, precisely because it is shorter.

The Taycan also looks inspired by the sporty 911 and the Panamera sedan. Its technological interior can have up to 4 screens, including a fully digital instrument panel.

No equipment information

Porsche has not yet released the equipment for each version, but said that those who buy the Taycan still carry a homemade 11 kW charger, as well as the installation in any city in Brazil.

The manufacturer will also provide a technical team to indicate the most appropriate configuration for the device.
