Porsche has announced the upcoming arrival of a third version of the Taycan, its first electric vehicle. After launching the Taycan Turbo and Turbo S, it was now the turn of the Taycan 4S.
It becomes, in a way, the entry-level version of the Taycan family. Slightly less powerful than the two Turbo models, the Taycan 4S also has a much lower starting price than the latter two.
The starting price of the Taycan 4S suggested by Porsche is $ 119,400, while the Taycan Turbo and the Taycan Turbo S start at $ 173,900 and $ 213,900.
The Taycan 4S is offered with two choices of batteries of different capacity. There is the standard 79.2 kWh Performance battery and the optional Performance Plus battery (93.4 kWh), the same battery found in the Taycan Turbo S and Taycan Turbo.
Power and autonomy vary depending on the choice of battery. The Performance battery allows the Taycan 4S to develop up to 522 hp (390 kW) in maximum power, while the Performance Plus battery will produce up to 562 hp (420 kW).
The Taycan 4S can complete 0 to 100 km / h in 4 seconds and reach a top speed of 250 km / h. Equipped with the Performance battery, the Taycan 4S can cover 407 km and its autonomy increases to 463 km with the Performance Plus battery, according to the data provided.
The other characteristics of the Taycan 4S are essentially the same as those of the Turbo versions, in terms of exterior and interior look, the drive system and new features specific to the Taycan range.
