When the EPA released its official range estimate for the new Porsche Taycan Turbo S, the sub-200-mile figure wasn’t very impressive in light of competitors’ numbers. Porsche announced that the more modestly priced Taycan 4S is joining the Turbo and Turbo S models at dealerships, and its range is slightly better at 203 miles, slotting just above the regular Turbo model’s 201-mile range.

That’s still way below many other electric competitors in the luxury market. The EPA ratings for the current Tesla S performance and long range variants span from 326 to 373 miles. Another upscale rival, the Jaguar I-Pace, offers more with 234 miles of range. The Taycan Turbo 4S’ range nearly matches the Audi Audi E-Tron’s 204-mile rating, however.  

The 4S model is the “base” version of the Taycan. It’s still priced in the six figures, but is a lot cheaper and offers all the style with only slightly dialed-back performance. It starts at $105,150 with the standard 79.2-kilowatt-hour battery (available in late 2020, according to Porsche) and $111,730 with the optional 93.4-kwh battery from the Taycan Turbo and Turbo S models. The Taycan Turbo starts much higher at $152,250 and the Turbo S at $186,350 (all prices include a destination charge).

Porsche started taking orders for the 4S model in the winter and said customers can, in states where it’s feasible, collect their cars in person — or if required or preferred amid the ongoing COVID-19 coronavirus crisis, receive their new Taycan via contactless home delivery.
