The Taycan features the latest generation of the Porsche Driver Experience with display and control systems that have been improved in many respects. The instrument cluster, central display and optional passenger display feature an optimised user interface with additional functions.

The driver can choose from a total of six views on the instrument cluster. The 3D driving assistance view is a new feature: it shows a 3D model of the surrounding area with the route, up to three lanes and a maximum of six other road users. A configurable battery display was also added to the left-hand display. This provides information about the current state of charge, the battery temperature, and the current charging power and target SoC during the charging process. The central display can now be configured with even more individuality. Each app can be moved to a desired location and saved as a direct access shortcut.

On the multifunction Sports steering wheel, the Skip Button replaces the recuperation switch. The mode switch on the steering wheel now comes as standard. Through the pop-up menu in the PCM, any driving mode other than Normal can be configured according to personal preferences. With this extensive customisation option, Individual mode is no longer required. The Taycan driver can place the recuperation function on the freely configurable diamond button.

For Taycan models equipped with the Sport Chrono package and the Performance Battery Plus, there is also a special push-to-pass button on the mode switch (see chapter Drive). Also new is the revised operating method of the control lever on the left behind the steering wheel, which can be used to adjust the driver assistance systems. It can be moved in all four directions. To change the speed of the cruise control, the driver can simply tap the lever lightly or more firmly up or down. The preselected speed then changes in increments of one or 10 km/h, respectively. If the mode button integrated into the control lever is pressed, settings for the assistance systems can also be adjusted directly in the driver or central display via pop-up menus.

The Taycan Cross Turismo has an additional gravel driving mode for light off-road terrain. This driving programme can now be directly selected via the mode switch.

The optional Head-Up Display (HUD) displays driving-relevant information above the steering wheel, helping the driver stay informed, concentrated and focused at all times. With the new Porsche Driver Experience, the Taycan features an optimised HUD. Several displays have been redesigned in terms of the layout, including the power meter and the Sport Chrono display. For the first time, functions such as push-to-pass, Porsche Intelligent Range Manager (PIRM) and the charging station icon are also on display here.

The optional HomeLink® (garage door opener) includes an interior mirror with newly integrated buttons for remote control. This allows garage or property gates, alarm systems, and exterior and interior lighting to be controlled at the touch of a button.

Deep integration of Apple CarPlay and, for the first time, in-car video

The scope of Apple CarPlay has been further improved and more deeply integrated in the vehicle displays and functions. The Phone service and others can now be displayed in the instrument cluster. My Porsche in Apple CarPlay also makes it possible to control vehicle functions directly from the Apple CarPlay ecosystem. It can be used, for example, to change radio stations and adjust the air conditioning and ambient lighting. Android Auto™ is also available, enabling the functions of Android™ smartphones to be used intelligently and securely in the vehicle.

The new In-Car Video function enables video streaming on the central display and the Passenger Display. A special film ensures that the screen cannot be seen from the driver’s seat. This means videos can be streamed on the passenger display without distracting the driver. The In-Car Video service is available through the third-party provider Screenhits.[1] Depending on the market, different streaming platforms are also integrated.
