The Australian arrival of the entry-level Porsche Taycan expands the local range to five versions of the all-electric sports sedan, and joins the recently released Taycan Cross Turismo variants.

The arrival of the Taycan also adds further weight to Porsche’s systematic drive towards sustainable mobility.

Australian model range

The Australian Taycan model range is summarised below.

  • Taycan 
  • Taycan 4S
  • Taycan GTS
  • Taycan Turbo
  • Taycan Turbo S

Powertrain: Porsche E-Performance

A key difference in the new Taycan is its powertrain. It’s fitted with a single electric motor at the rear axle and uses rear-wheel drive.

All other model variants in the current Taycan range are fitted with dual electric motors (one at the front axle, one at the rear axle) and all-wheel drive.

The Taycan’s compact power module (which comprises its electric motor, pulse-controlled inverter, and two-speed transmission – each detailed below) is fitted parallel to the rear axle, ensuring maximum space capacity for the rear luggage compartment.

All in all, this power module has one of the highest power densities of any electric vehicle powertrain on the market today.

800-volt system architecture:

As with all Taycan models, this new rear-wheel-drive variant uses Porsche’s innovative 800-volt electric drive system which provides impressive driving range, fast recharging, and Porsche sportscar performance.

The Taycan was the first production car to use a voltage system of 800 volts (the voltage range is 610-835 volts) instead of the usual 400 volts for electric cars.

Porsche’s 800-volt system allows consistently high performance, reduced battery recharging times, decreased weight, and requires less space for cabling.  

Choice of two batteries:

The new Taycan is fitted with Porsche’s Performance Battery as standard equipment. It has a gross capacity of 79.2 kWh. This highly efficient unit delivers impressive performance in the new Taycan:

  • Maximum power: 240 kW / 326 PS*
  • Overboost power for Launch Control: 300 kW / 408 PS*
  • Maximum torque: 345 Nm
  • Electric range**: 369 km
  • Recharging time^ (AC, 11 kW, 0% to up to 100%): 8.0 h (Performance Battery)
  • Recharging time^ (DC, 50 kW, 5% up to 80%): 93 min
  • Rechanging time^ (DC, maximum charging power, 5% up to 80%): 22.5 min

Porsche’s Performance Battery Plus package is available as an option. It increases gross battery capacity to 93.4 kWh, delivering even greater performance:

  • Maximum power: 280 kW / 380 PS*
  • Overboost power for Launch Control: 350 kW / 476 PS*
  • Maximum torque: 357 Nm
  • Electric range**: 434 km
  • Recharging time^ (AC, 11 kW, 0% up to 100%): 9.0 hours
  • Recharging time^ (DC, 50 kW, 5% up to 80%): 93 minutes
  • Rechanging time^ (DC, maximum charging power, 5% up to 80%): 22.5 minutes

The battery, whichever is specified in the Taycan, is located in the vehicle’s underbody, providing a low centre of gravity for agile handling.

The battery is also a load-bearing structure in the Taycan and accommodates cooling and electronic components. It sits in a waterproof housing and uses sophisticated thermal management to maintain it at an optimum temperature range.  

Innovative electric motor:

A key part of the new Taycan‘s Porsche E-Performance powertrain is its exceptionally efficient permanently excited synchronous electric motor, which is located at the rear axle.

Permanently excited synchronous motors use a rotor of high-quality permanent magnets that generate a natural magnetic field. The rotor moves synchronously with the magnetic rotating field of the stator, which is why it’s called a permanently excited synchronous motor.

The frequency of the rotating field inside the stator is determined by the pulse-controlled inverter (see next section), which helps ensure high levels of motor performance.

Another feature behind the electric motor’s exceptional performance is its hairpin winding design. The stator coil’s copper wires are rectangular, rather than round, and they’re bent into the shape of a hairpin before they’re inserted into the stator’s laminated core, hence their name.

This hairpin design means the wires can be packed in more densely, increasing the amount of copper in the stator.

Conventional electric motor winding processes have a copper filling factor of 45 to 50 per cent. Porsche’s hairpin winding design is just under 70 per cent in the Taycan. This means greater power and torque outputs for the same volume and more efficient cooling.

The power-dense electric motor on the Taycan’s rear axle is extremely compact: it’s 130 mm long and has a diameter of 245 mm.

Pulse-controlled inverter:

The Taycan’s electric motor is controlled by a pulse-controlled inverter.

This unit it mounted with the electric motor and converts the direct current (DC) supplied by the battery to alternating current (AC) to drive the electric motor.

This high-performance inverter has a maximum current of 600 amps and has an exceptional efficiency of 98 per cent.

Two-speed transmission:

Mounted to the rear axle is a two-speed transmission, a special innovation by Porsche fitted to all versions in the current Taycan range.

First gear gives the Taycan breathtaking acceleration from a standing start. In this gear, around 15 revolutions of the electric motor represents on wheel revolution, which means a very high wheel torque.

First gear is used mainly in Sport and Sport Plus driving modes (where Launch Control is available to use).

Second gear delivers high efficiency and power reserves, even at high speeds. It has a gear ratio of around 8:1 (eight electric motor revolutions for one wheel revolution). This means the Taycan has a top speed typical of a Porsche sport car and acceleration reserves at higher speeds.

Recuperation: replenishing battery charge on the move:

Vehicles with internal combustion engines (powered by petrol, diesel, gas) convert their kinetic energy into heat when their brakes are used during driving.

An electric vehicle, however, can recover a large part of its kinetic energy. It can do this by using its electric motor as a generator during deceleration and then sending this newly generated electrical power to its onboard battery. This is known as recuperation.

The Taycan uses the Porsche Recuperation Management (PRM) system, a high-performance design that uses its own approach:

  • The Taycan’s maximum possible recuperation capacity is 265 kW, significantly more than its competitors.
  • Maximum deceleration during recuperation is 3.8 m/s2.
  • The Taycan’s available kinetic energy is reserved for keeping the car moving on the road; when the driver releases the accelerator pedal, the Taycan is designed to always roll and coast as far as possible, which means it doesn’t suddenly feel like the brakes have been applied as soon as the driver lifts their right foot.  
  • Only when the driver presses the brake pedal does recuperation occur, and it does so with a very high level of energy recovery.

The Taycan’s Porsche Recuperation Management (PRM) means the driver experiences predictable and reproducible deceleration behaviour regardless of battery charge level or temperature.

Driving tests have shown that up to 90 per cent of everyday braking activities in the Taycan are done by its electric motors, not its brakes – leading to less brake pad wear. Because of this, the Taycan’s brake pad replacement schedule is now time-specified: they need to be replaced every six years.

Driving modes

Four separate driving modes are available in this new Taycan model variant: Range, Normal, Sport, Sport Plus. There is also an individual mode, where individual system options can be configured by the driver.

Each Drive Mode applies different vehicle settings to make optimum use of the Taycan.

Please note: the Sport Plus and Individual drive modes are available only with the optional Sport Chrono Package, which includes the GT multifunction sports steering wheel and an integrated driving mode rotary switch.

Range:

This driving mode is about maximising the Taycan’s efficiency to obtain the longest permissible driving range available from the battery’s state of charge.

Various functions within the car, such as the air conditioning, hydraulic pumps, and headlights, operate in their most efficient configurations.

Top speed is limited to be between 90 and 140 km/h but can be over-ridden by depressing the accelerator pedal. 

Normal:

This is the Taycan’s basic setting. Power is delivered in a linear manner and the vehicle’s functions operate without restriction.

Sport:

The Sport and Sport Plus driving modes deliver the highest performance from the Taycan’s powertrain.

Sport mode applies driver requests more dynamically. The optionally available adaptive air suspension (which is fitted with Porsche Active Suspension Management, PASM) lowers the Taycan depending on speed. And the chassis, including the optional rear-axle steering – if specified – is adjusted to a sporty setup. The adaptive cruise control is also more dynamic, allowing more powerful acceleration.

Sport Plus:

Driver requests are delivered even more dynamically. The Taycan’s battery cooling and heating strategies are tailored for maximum performance. The chassis’ various systems, depending on the options fitted, are optimised for maximum racetrack performance. For example, when the adaptive air suspension (optional feature) is fitted, the chassis remains in its lowest position.

Launch control

Launch control is standard fitment on the Taycan. When engaged, it delivers maximum acceleration from a standstill by using an overboost function for 2.5 seconds, which supplies extra power to the electric motor.

This results in a 0-100 km/h time of 5.4 seconds in the new rear-wheel-drive Taycan.

Chassis

The rear-wheel-drive Taycan sports sedan delivers the precise handling of a sports car with long-distance comfort.

The Taycan’s chassis includes a suspension layout typical in sports cars:

  • Front: a double-wishbone suspension design (that uses forged aluminium wishbones and hollow-cast lightweight swivel bearings)
  • Rear: multi-link rear axle with forged upper aluminium wishbones and hollow-cast lower aluminium wishbones.

The suspension design uses steel coil springs with Porsche Active Suspension Management (PASM, see below). Adaptive air suspension with PASM is available as an option.

Porsche 4D Chassis Control:

This is the centrally networked control system for the Taycan chassis. It analyses the current driving situation in all three acceleration dimensions (longitudinal, lateral, and vertical) and calculates the vehicle’s status. The fourth dimension comes about by the real-time sharing of these data with the Taycan’s chassis systems. This means the Taycan’s systems can respond to the imminent driving situation.

Porsche Active Suspension Management (PASM):

Porsche’s electronic shock absorber control system is fitted as standard to the Taycan. The system makes lightning-fast adjustments to each single-tube damper at each individual wheel by monitoring road-surface conditions and the current driving style. PASM ensures improved driving stability, performance and comfort.

Adaptive air suspension (optional):

Three-chamber adaptive air suspension is optionally available on the rear-wheel-drive Taycan.

Its design allows a wide variety of spring rates in a fraction of a second, from optimum comfort to maximum sports performance. It also has a self-levelling function.

The system’s Smart Lift function automatically adjusts the Taycan’s ride height on motorways to give the best compromise between efficiency and driving comfort.

The Smart Lift function can also be programmed to lift the suspension at recurring locations, such as garage driveways.

Porsche Torque Vectoring Plus (PTV Plus):

This optional feature comprises an electronically controlled differential lock on the rear axle to vary the drive torque between the rear wheels.

It controls the torque applied to each wheel by selectively braking each rear wheel (such as the inner wheel on the bend to enhance agility) and by selectively locking the differential to improve traction when accelerating out of corners.

Rear axle steering:

The optional rear axle steering feature enhances the Taycan’s steering precision and maneuverability.

At speeds up to about 50 km/h, the rear wheels steer up to 2.8 degrees in the opposite direction to the front wheels. This has the effect of shortening the wheelbase, making steering response more dynamic and lower-speed maneuvering much easier.

At speeds above approximately 50 km/h, the rear wheels steer in the same direction as the front wheels, virtually lengthening the wheelbase and increasing stability when, for example, changing lanes on a motorway.

Power Steering Plus:

Power steering Plus is fitted as standard equipment to the Taycan.

It provides firm steering feel and good feedback on road surfaces and driving conditions at higher speeds

It also provides greater steering forces at lower speeds, making parking and low-speed maneuvering easier.

Brakes

The rear-wheel-drive Taycan uses cast-iron brake discs front and rear. The braking system’s key dimensions are:

Front brakes:
360 mm diameter discs (36 mm thickness)
6-piston aluminium fixed monobloc calipers

Rear brakes:
358 mm diameter discs (28 mm thickness)
4-piston aluminium fixed monobloc calipers

The brakes calipers are black in colour. 

Wheels and tyres

The Taycan is fitted with 19-inch Taycan Aero Wheels. Their dimensions are:

  • Front: 8.0 J x 19 ET50 with 225/55 R19 tyres
  • Rear: 10.0 J x 19 ET47 with 275/45 R19 tyres

Optionally available are 20-inch Taycan Aero Wheels and 21-inch Mission E Design wheels.
 

Driving performance

The rear-wheel drive Taycan’s performance figures underline the capabilities of Porsche E-Performance. Its key figures are:

  • 0 – 100 km/h: 5.4 seconds
  • Top speed: 230 km/h
  • Standing-start quarter mile: 13.7 seconds
  • Electric range**: 369 km (434 km with Performance Battery Plus)
     

Recharging the Taycan in Australia

Two recharging ports are fitted to the Taycan: one on each side of the car, just forward of the front doors.

The Mobile Charger Connect, which provides intelligent charging functions, including wall mount and 2.5-metre cable, are included as standard.

A 150 kW onboard DC charger for recharging at public stations with a voltage of 400 volts is also included as standard.

The following recharging cable connections are also included:

  • Supply cable for domestic electrical sockets
  • Supply cable for red industrial electrical outlets (400 V, 32 A, 5 pin)
  • Supply cable for blue industrial electrical outlets (230 V, 32 A, 3 pin)
  • Charging cable (mode 3) for charging at public AC charging pedestals with 4.5-metre length

The Porsche charging dock and Home Energy Manager are also included.

Taycan owners in Australia have several ways to recharge. They include High Performance Charging, Home Charging, and Porsche Destination Charging.

    -- High Performance Charging:

Taycan buyers receive a complimentary three-year subscription to Australia’s Chargefox& Ultra-Rapid DC charging network (with recharging units up to 350 kW) and selected Chargefox&-managed Fast DC charging sites (mostly 50 kW).

Their subscription starts on the day they take delivery of their new Taycan.

Owners can download the Chargefox& app via Google Play or the Apple App Store.

Home charging:

Taycan buyers can have their home recharging installation requirements assessed by Jet Charge. This can be arranged by Porsche Centre sales consultants at time of purchase.

The Home Energy Manager (standard inclusion) can optimise vehicle recharging in terms of performance, time and costs by continually monitoring the available power output supply and the power requirements of the Taycan.

Porsche Destination Charging:

The Porsche Destination Charging Network in Australia continues to grow across metropolitan and regional sites. Taycan owners can use these complimentary charging facilities when they’re on the road. Porsche owners can find charging locations by visiting the Porsche Destination Charging network online.

Charging the Taycan

Charging an electric car, such as the Porsche Taycan, is simple. But some of the numbers and terms involved will be new to many people. Watch Kate Reid explain what it all means.

Porsche Electric sport sound

Every fan knows the unmistakable sound of a Porsche flat-six-cylinder engine. But electric cars have their own quiet soundtrack.

The optional Porsche Electric Sport Sound for the Taycan has been skillfully composed to produce a sportscar sound to match the Taycan’s personality and driving status. It emits a vehicle driving sound that’s more emotionally charged and richer, with an innovative character inside and outside the car.

When fitted, the optional Porsche Electric Sport Sound can be activated and deactivated by the driver.

The Taycan’s inbuilt Acoustic Vehicle Alerting System (AVAS), however, cannot be switched off at low speeds. This system emits sound for the safety of other road users, such as pedestrians.

Exterior design

Because the Taycan sports sedan was designed as a fully electric vehicle from the outset, it opened up new freedoms for Porsche’s designers.

Despite breaking new ground both technically and aesthetically, it’s still immediately recognisable as a Porsche.

The Taycan’s silhouette is defined by Porsche’s signature ‘fly line’, its sporty roofline that slopes downward to the rear.

Other signature Porsche styling features include its sleek cabin, the drawn-in C-pillar, and the pronounced shoulders of the wings. They produce a sharply emphasised rear, typical of Porsche sportscars.

The Taycan’s pure and clean design approach features various innovative elements, such as the glass-effect rear light bar, which contains the Porshe logo. Together they signal a new era is underway.

The Taycan’s stance appears low and wide thanks in part to its compact technical components. They allow a sloping bonnet, giving the signature Porsche frontal styling.

They also allow space for two luggage compartments: one in the rear and one at the front (under the bonnet.)

The cooling air intakes are smaller than those used in a vehicle with a similar-output combustion engine. They direct air for the cooling and air conditioning systems as well as the brakes in a targeted manner.

Short overhangs front and rear emphasise the sedan’s sporty proportions with a lean and muscular look.

Taycan - Interior

Interior design

The cleanly styled dashboard of the original 1963 911 was the inspiration behind the Taycan’s cockpit. Its design is clear and driver-focused and signals the start of a new era.

The innovative instrument cluster consists of a 16.8-inch curved display using the rounded form made famous by Porsche. Its style resembles the slim and modern appearance of high-quality smartphones and tablets.

Five different display modes can be chosen for the instrument cluster: “Power Meter”, “Map”, “Extended Map”, “Reduced”, and “Night View”.

The instrument panel includes external touchscreen control panels for operating the light and chassis functions.

The wing-shaped upper and lower sections of the dashboard stretch across the entire width of the car.

A central 10.9-inch infotainment display and an optional passenger display are combined to form an integrated glass band in a black-panel look, which blends in visually with the interior.

All vehicle configurations for the Taycan, such as Porsche Active Suspension Management (PASM), can easily be set up on the central screen via direct access.

The driver can quickly access all apps via a clearly structured and customisable home screen. Apps include navigation, telephone, media, comfort and Porsche Connect. With the optimised voice control function, drivers can access the required function even faster.

The elevated centre console in the partial-leather interior intensifies the feeling of a low, sporty seating position, as you would expect from a Porsche. It features a large 8.4-inch touch panel with haptic feedback.

14-way electric Comfort seats with memory package (including steering wheel with electric height and fore/aft adjustment) are standard fitment, as is the advanced two-zone climate control system.

Thermally insulated privacy glass is also fitted.

Every detail of the Taycan’s interior has been reduced to the essentials. Like the Porsche 918 Spyder, the Taycan has a compact direction selector switch in the instrument panel instead of the classic gear lever. This gives the centre console a tidy look and creates storage space.

Porsche Communication Management (PCM)

The entry-level Taycan is fitted with the latest Porsche Communication Management (PCM) and Porsche Connect.

They’re operated via the Taycan’s inbuilt high-resolution 10.9-inch full HD touchscreen.

The Taycan’s audio and communication system includes an LTE communication module with embedded SIM card and internet access.

They Taycan’s Porsche Connect services include:

  • Online navigation

What the press say

"The Porsche Taycan has been an unmitigated success for the hallowed German sportscar brand." Feann Torr, Carsales.com.au

"Attracting new customers and rusted-on Porschephiles alike with a unique design and more than a sprinkling of pragmatism, Porsche’s first EV unequivocally also delivers trademark Porsche performance. But now there’s an entry-level variant that lowers the entry price, putting it within striking range of arguably the reason for it’s being: the pioneering Tesla Model S."

Feann Torr, Carsales.com.au (Full review here)

 

"A new version of the this luxury brand’s electric car has just hit the road and surprisingly it trumps its siblings. Rear-wheel drive means a purer sporting drive experience, and for most, it has all the performance you need."

Iain Curry, news.com.au (Full review here)

 

"Porsche’s most affordable Taycan contrasts its older siblings but shines as brightly.Spending some time in the new entry-level Taycan has enabled me to better understand its more capable and more expensive siblings and perhaps explore a little more of their bountiful breadth, but now I’m ready for the training wheels to come off, I don’t think I want to graduate after all."

Daniel Gardner, Wheels (Full review here)

 

"The new Taycan looks and drives like a 21st century Porsche. It has the looks, the dynamism, and the style you’d expect. And I reckon it’s better value than the 4S, once outfitted with a few well-chosen options."

Glenn Butler, DRIVE.com.au (Full review here)

 

"Porsche is one of the most iconic car manufacturers in the world, however what it’s often not given enough credit for is the amazing product planning. If you want an awesome electric vehicle for daily use that carries all the essential credentials of what is arguably Germany’s best automaker, the rear-wheel drive Taycan will absolutely not disappoint."

Alborz Fallah, CarExpert.com.au (Full review here)

 

"The new Taycan variant is designed to appeal to people that like the characteristics of a rear-wheel drive vehicle. It retains all that is great about the Taycan but just adds a playfulness to the drive experience that's very appealing."

Tim Nicholson, CarsGuide.com.au (Full review here)

 

"Our first impression as we thread our way through Noosa’s many multi-lane roundabouts is that like all entry-level Porsches, the base Taycan has more than enough power and plenty of dynamic appeal."

Haitham Razagui, GoAuto.com.au (Full review here)

 

"It feels more playful and engaging than its more powerful siblings on a twisty country road. I’d say the Taycan RWD might just be the pick of the range."

Stephen Ottley, Speedcafe.com (Full review here)

 

"Unlike traditional large sedans the Taycan showcases a sporty profile. It’s an ideal cocktail for those looking to immerse themselves in the Porsche experience for the first time."

Brett Davis, PerformanceDrive.com.au (Full review here)

** The published consumption (l/100km and Wh/km), emissions (g/km) and kilometre (km) range figures are determined by Porsche AG testing in accordance with ADR 81/02 on test vehicles. Actual figures will vary as they are dependent on many factors, including without limitation: individual driving style, road and traffic conditions, environmental conditions, fuel quality, a vehicle’s or battery’s condition, load and use. Extra features and accessories (eg: equipment, wheels or tyres used etc.) can change relevant vehicle parameters such as weight, rolling resistance and aerodynamics and can also affect the consumption, emission, range and performance values of a vehicle. CO₂ emissions can also be generated at the power source when vehicles are being recharged, unless 100% renewable energy is used. Generally, consumption, emissions, kilometre range and charging times will vary from the published figures in real world Australian driving and charging conditions.

^The specified charging outputs and times (hour/minutes) are dependent on various factors: in general, the charging output and time can vary due to physical and chemical limits, depending on factors such as the available output of the country-specific energy infrastructure, the customer's own domestic installation, the temperature, interior pre-conditioning and charging status, as well as the age of the battery. Charging times may therefore be significantly higher than those specified. To achieve the optimum value of the specified DC charging time (DC = direct current) for a charge status increase from 5 to 80%, a CCS (combined charging system) fast-charging pedestal with > 270kW and > 850V is required, as well as a battery temperature of 30°–35°C. The charging status when commencing charging must not exceed 5%. For physical and chemical reasons, the charging speed decreases as the battery approaches its full capacity. Therefore, it usually makes sense to use fast DC charging to charge the battery up to 80% or up to the required range. The predominant use of CCS fast charging pedestals leads to a long-term increase in charging times. For regular fast DC charging, we recommend a maximum charging output of 50kW. When charging in a domestic environment, AC charging (AC = alternating current) is recommended. Using an (AC) industrial electrical outlet will result in improved efficiency and a much shorter charging time compared to using a household socket.

Published figures should only be used for the purpose of comparison between vehicles. Please contact an Official Porsche Centre to obtain specific information about vehicles and features
