Miles per gallon-equivalent is how the EPA provides efficiency ratings for battery-electric vehicles in a way that can be used in comparison with gasoline-powered vehicles. Actual mileage will vary depending on driving conditions, driving habits, elevation changes, weather, accessory usage (lights, climate control), vehicle condition and other factors.

EPA-estimated range is the distance, or predicted distance, a new plug-in vehicle will travel on electric power before its battery charge is exhausted. Actual range will vary depending on driving conditions, driving habits, elevation changes, weather, accessory usage (lights, climate control), vehicle condition and other factors.

Charge time estimates are based on using a 240-volt charging circuit charging from empty to 100% battery capacity. Level 2 is the fastest way to charge at home, though charging times can vary and are dependent on factors such as the capabilities of the charging circuit, charging equipment and the vehicle’s onboard charger.

DC fast charging DC fast charging

DC fast charging is the fastest way to charge and only available at pay-for-use public charging stations, though some EVs come with complimentary charging for a limited time. Real-world DC fast charging times can vary greatly, even on the same vehicle, because of this type of charging’s sensitivities to ambient and battery conditions.

Battery capacity Battery capacity

Battery capacity is measured in kilowatt-hours, which is a measure of how much energy is used over time. A 70-kWh battery has more energy capacity than a 50-kWh battery and would result in a longer driving range if all other factors were equal. But more battery capacity doesn’t always mean longer range because of differences in energy consumption from vehicle to vehicle. Battery capacity provided by Chrome Data, a JD Power company.

2020 Porsche Taycan review: Our expert's take

By Jennifer Geiger

We’ve just started getting to know the Porsche Taycan — the automaker’s first-ever all-electric vehicle — and it’s already getting an update. The Taycan debuted for 2020 and is receiving some new features for 2021.

1. Head-Up Display

A new color head up display is now available on the electric sedan. It can project content, such as calls or voice control commands, directly in front of the driver. It’s  also configurable and can be set to project navigation details, the power meter and other info.

2. Programmable Suspension

The new Smartlift function allows drivers to program their Taycan’s suspension to automatically raise in certain locations, like speed bumps or driveways. Note that this feature is only included on models with the adaptive air suspension, however.

3. Over-the-Air Add-Ons

Porsche is also adding some features to its Function on Demand option, which allows drivers to add convenience and assistance systems after purchasing their Taycan thanks to over-the-air software updates. New additions include Active Lane Keep Assist and Porsche InnoDrive, which adapts the speed of the car to the conditions ahead, taking into account speed limits, turns, traffic circles and other traffic situations.

4. Smarter Charging

A new battery preservation feature can regulate the charging capacity (at DC fast-charging stations, for instance) to around 200 kilowatts. Drivers can enable this setting on the Taycan’s central display, and Porsche says the feature can extend the battery’s service life and reduce overall power loss while charging. A charging capacity of up to 270 kW remains available at 800-volt high-power charging stations for drivers who don’t enable the system.

5. Infotainment Options

Updates to the multimedia system include the availability of SiriusXM 360L, the ability to select Apple podcasts as an individual media source, more flexibility in ordering and displaying media preferences, as well as the option to highlight compatible charging locations.

And More …

Other new highlights include a more secure way to pay for vehicle charging at Electrify America charging points, along with seven new exterior colors: Mahogany Metallic, Frozenberry Metallic, Cherry Metallic, Coffee Beige Metallic, Chalk, Neptune Blue and Ice Grey Metallic. Inside, four new interior options are now available: black/Limestone Beige (standard), Blackberry and Blackberry/Slate Grey leather, Graphite Blue/Slate Grey Race-Tex and Basalt Black/Meranti Brown OLEA Club Leather.

The 2021 Porsche Taycan goes on sale in early 2021.

Simply Amazing

The Porsche Taycan is a work of art in terms of comfort, performance and overall driving dynamics. The handling and acceleration are truly something to behold and are just on another level from most other vehicles on the road.


Its not a Porsche, no engine noise, no gear shift

I enjoyed the speed and acceleration, good town car, not a patch on Panamera. The silence is deafening, just not a real Porsche! Not for me!


Automotive engineering is tops, tech is the pits

This car is designed beautifully, is comfortable and sporty. Fast as anything else on the road today. The tech, apps, and associated software is down right awful. Germany needs to fix that part and update its current owners.
