Porsche is upgrading its Tycan, all-electric fleet. The 2022 Porsche Taycan and 2022 Porsche Taycan Cross Turismo are receiving a number of technology and personalization enhancements for the new model year.
Chief among those improvements is the ability for the vehicles’ batteries to heat to a higher temperature allowing fast charging to occur earlier and at a higher level than before. This reduces the time it takes to charge. A feature standard on all Tesla vehicles.
Remote Park Assist technology allows a driver to remotely park the Taycan and Taycan Cross Turismo using their smartphone. Users can move the vehicles in and out of parallel and perpendicular spaces both on the street and in parking garages.
There are additional upgrades designed to improve technology that has already been integrated into the vehicles. Voice Pilot has been enhanced to recognize more natural speech. The satellite navigation system now computes information more quickly. The car’s operating system has had its menu layout switched around for more top-level options.
Porsche has integrated Android Auto into the company’s Porsche Communication Management (PCM) system. The operating system already has Apple CarPlay compatibility. Android Auto and Apple CarPlay work when tethered to the car’s USB-C connection.
Buyers can customize their electric vehicle from Porsche more than ever before starting with the new model year. Customers will be able to choose from 17 standard paint colors. The new Paint to Sample and Paint to Sample Plus programs allow clients to choose from an expanded offering of exterior paint jobs, 65 and unlimited selections, respectively.
The Porsche Charging Service offers access to the worldwide charging points of numerous networks, with central billing being handled by Porsche. There are currently almost 200,000 charging points in more than 20 countries across Europe, including nearly 6,500 50 kW-plus DC charging stations.
Porsche Taycan range
Entry level Taycan offers 5.4 seconds to 60, 143 mph top speed and range of 195 miles. Yours for £72,850 before options. Top of the range gives you the Taycan Turbo S Cross Turismo for twice the price or £140,360 and offers 2.9 to 60 and 155 mph with a range of 211 miles.
Porsche make range comparison difficult as they like to quote electrical consumption in the same way as a petrol car shows fuel consumption. The Taycan offers 26.4 to 24.4 KWh per 100Km. This makes it very hard to determine the cars real range. First you have to know the battery size and then estimate if consumption is linear and how much of the battery power or charge level range is available. The Specs state: Battery capacity 93.4 KWh with 83.7 KWh as useable. So all you have to do is divide battery size 83.7 KWh by power consumption, say 25 Kwh / 100 to get range of 319 Km or around 200 miles.
Porsche understand this and try to make things easier with a nifty range calculator. This lets you select type of driving, temperature and wheels to give an estimate of the range.
