Porsche has formally unveiled the new Taycan. The sports car maker noted that the refreshed Taycan sports sedan, Taycan Cross Turismo, and Taycan Sport Turismo have been improved in almost every discipline. A look at the new vehicles’ specs and features suggests that Porsche’s comments are accurate. 

In a press release announcing the refreshed vehicle, Porsche noted that four powertrain options are available for the Taycan sports sedan, Taycan Cross Turismo, and Taycan Sport Turismo. Kevin Giek, head of the Taycan line, shared some thoughts about the new vehicle. 

“We ushered in the new era of e-mobility with the Taycan at the end of 2019. It immediately proved to be a game changer and innovative pioneer in the e-vehicle segment. We are now continuing this success story with the extensively updated Taycan. The model line has reached new heights in terms of performance, with exceptional driving dynamics and driving pleasure. At the same time, we were able to significantly improve efficiency, range, day-to-day usability and comfort,” Giek said.

A look at the refreshed Taycan would reveal some exterior changes that Porsche has rolled out to the vehicle. These include new front and rear-end styling with new headlights and tail lights, as well as Turbonite accent colors for the Taycan Turbo and Taycan Turbo S models. 

Porsche also noted that all refreshed Taycan models feature better acceleration than their predecessors. Moreover, the automaker also rolled out a new “Push-to-Pass” function in the Sport Chrono package, which provides a boost of up to 70 kW depending on the trim for up to 10 seconds. By activating “Push-to-Pass,” the base Taycan could deliver a boost of 60 KW. And in the Taycan Turbo S, the feature offers an additional 140 kW with Launch Control.

The sports car maker noted that the refreshed Taycan offers over 35% more range than its predecessor, with the vehicle’s WLTP range being increased to up to 678 km (421 miles). At 800-volt DC charging stations, the new Taycan can charge at up to 320 kW, which should provide drivers and passengers with short charging stops during long road trips. 

Other improvements that were rolled out to the Taycan include a new active chassis, standard adaptive air suspension for the entire line, an advanced powertrain with a new rear-axle motor with up to 80 kW more power than its predecessor, and a weight reduction of up to 15 kg (33 lbs). The new Taycan’s instrument cluster, central display, and optional passenger display have also been optimized with more features.
