Home and Destination Charging (0 -> 100%)

Charging is possible by using a regular wall plug or a charging station. Public charging is always done through a charging station. How fast the EV can charge depends on the charging station (EVSE) used and the maximum charging capacity of the EV. The table below shows all possible options for charging the Porsche Taycan. Each option shows how fast the battery can be charged from empty to full.

Type 2 (Mennekes - IEC 62196)

Rapid Charging (10 -> 80%)

Rapid charging enables longer journeys by adding as much range as possible in the shortest amount of time. Charging power will decrease significantly after 80% state-of-charge has been reached. A typical rapid charge therefore rarely exceeds 80% SoC. The rapid charge rate of an EV depends on the charger used and the maximum charging power the EV can handle. The table below shows all details for rapid charging the Porsche Taycan.

  • Max. Power: maximum power provided by charge point
  • Avg. Power: average power provided by charge point over a session from 10% to 80%
  • Time: time needed to charge from 10% to 80%
  • Rate: average charging speed over a session from 10% to 80%
Combined Charging System (CCS Combo 2)

This vehicle supports Plug & Charge

† = Limited by charging capabilities of vehicle

Autocharge: allows for automatic initiation of a charging session at supported CCS charging stations.

Plug & Charge: allows for automatic initiation of a charging session at supported CCS charging stations in accordance with ISO 15118.

Actual charging rates may differ from data shown due to factors like outside temperature, state of the battery and driving style.

All about the Porsche Taycan

Pricing

The Porsche Taycan has an On The Road Price (OTR) of £86,500. The OTR Price includes VAT, first year of VED, vehicle first registration fee, number plates and delivery.

Drivetrain and Performance

The Porsche Taycan is a full electric vehicle (BEV). The maximum power of the Porsche Taycan is 300 kW (402 hp). The maximum torque is 302 lb-ft. The Porsche Taycan is rear wheel drive and can accelerate from 0 to 62 miles per hour in 4.8 seconds. The top speed is 143 mph.

Battery and Charging

The battery of the Porsche Taycan has a total capacity of 89 kWh. The usable capacity is 82.3 kWh. An estimated range of about 300 miles is achievable on a fully charged battery. The actual range will however depend on several factors including climate, terrain, use of climate control systems and driving style.

For example: sustaining high speeds in cold weather could result in a range of around 220 mi. However, driving at low speeds in mild weather will increase the range to around 425 mi.

Charging is done using a Type 2 connector and the on-board charger has a maximum power of 11 kW. This charges a fully depleted battery back to full in around 9 hours. However, a 3-phase grid connection is needed to achieve this. The majority of homes and charge points currently do not have this connection. In most cases the maximum charging power will be 7.4 kW, allowing for a charge time of 13 hours 15 minutes and a charge rate of 23 mph. An optional on-board charger with a maximum power of 22.0 kW is available. This charges a fully depleted battery back to full in around 4 hours 30 minutes. Charging the car using a regular wall plug will take around 42 hours 15 minutes.

Rapid charging is possible through a CCS connection. The maximum rapid charge power is 270 kW. The battery can't be charged continuously at this power. In an average rapid charge session the average charge power will be around 195 kW. This charges the battery from 10% to 80% in around 20 minutes. A rapid charge like this will add about 210 miles of range.

Energy Consumption

The estimated combined (motorway and city) energy consumption of the Porsche Taycan is about 274 Wh per mile. By comparison, this energy consumption is the equivalent of a fuel consumption of 147 mpg in a traditional petrol car.

The actual energy consumption will depend on several factors including climate, terrain, use of climate control systems and driving style. For example: sustaining high speeds in cold weather could result in an energy use of around 374 Wh per mile. However, driving at low speeds in mild weather will increase the efficiency to about 194 Wh per mile.

CO2 Emission

The Porsche Taycan emits no CO2 during driving. This only includes direct emissions from the vehicle itself. The energy needed to charge the battery might have been (partly) generated by the use of fossil fuels. Vehicles with an internal combustion engine will always emit CO2 during driving. Additionally, CO2 is emitted during the production and transport of fossil fuels.
