Base Porsche Taycan EPA Range Revealed: 200 To 225 Miles

But the AMCI independent range test shows 252 miles and 282 miles of range.

Porsche has recently revealed expected EPA Combined range numbers for its new, entry-level Taycan model, announced in January.

Depending on the battery version, the least expensive Taycan will get 200 miles (322 km) with a 79.2 kWh battery or 225 miles (362 km) with a 93.4 kWh battery. Porsche calls the smaller battery the “Performance Battery” and the larger battery the “Performance Battery Plus.”

Those results are very similar to the Taycan 4S version (all-wheel drive), while we expected slightly higher values (just like in the WLTP test cycle, in which the standard Taycan is the top in terms of range).

EPA vs AMCI

The EPA range numbers for the Porsche Taycan model are often much lower than in the real-world range tests, which prompts the company to supplement the EPA ratings with additional info about AMCI independent range test results.

In the case of the entry-level model, the AMCI results are 252 miles (405 km) and 282 miles (454 km). The all-wheel-drive version – Taycan 4S – is rated at 247 miles (397 km) and 272 miles (438 km).

The Taycan Turbo and Taycan Turbo S have a range of 275 miles (442 km) and 278 miles (447 km) according to AMCI tests.

AMCI test results:

  • 2021 Porsche Taycan (79 kWh): 252 miles (405 km)
  • 2021 Porsche Taycan (93 kWh): 282 miles (454 km)
  • 2021 Porsche Taycan 4S (79 kWh): 247 miles (397 km)
  • 2021 Porsche Taycan 4S (93 kWh): 272 miles (438 km)
  • 2021 Porsche Taycan Turbo (93 kWh): 275 miles (442 km)
  • 2021 Porsche Taycan Turbo S (93 kWh): 278 miles (447 km)

And to gather all the numbers in a single place, here are WLTP range ratings:

  • 2021 Porsche Taycan (79 kWh): 431 km (268 miles)
  • 2021 Porsche Taycan (93 kWh): 484 km (301 miles)
  • 2021 Porsche Taycan 4S (79 kWh): 408 km (254 miles)
  • 2021 Porsche Taycan 4S (93 kWh): 464 km (288 miles)
  • 2021 Porsche Taycan Turbo (93 kWh): 452 km (281 miles)
