Natural in its instinct to sway towards the likes of the Tesla Model S, Lucid Air, and Audi e-Tron GT, the Porsche Taycan 2022 can be a step up in its game with its agility to available 469 hp drive. That being said, a peak range stamina of 225 miles is also certain for this silent beast just after having a complete 100% charge within 9.5 hours through a 9.6 kW AC source. Alongside such a phenomenon, we have been blessed with 4S and Turbo Cross Turismo for diversified throttling.

Expert Review, Pricing Analysis and Buying Guide

The 2022 Porsche Taycan has been engineered to be fearless at its pedaling thanks to its unmatched Porsche Active Suspension Management and other dynamics attachments such as the $ 1,500-priced Porsche Torque Vectoring Plus. Not just that, its top speed of 143 MPH does not seem to be traded off irrespective of the fact whether the 200 miles Performance Battery has been synced or the 225 miles Performance Battery Plus Management. 

Designed to be a performance demon, the Porsche Taycan maintenance cost of merely $4,000 justifies its build quality. And further bolstering its stance is the optional packages that extend its appeal by margins including the inspiring Sport Chrono Package and Premium Package which have been priced at $1,320 and $7,310 respectively. Apart from these, we have got a destination fee of $1,350 as well that is there in its financial summary.  


Buying Advice

Though the 2022 Porsche Taycan is a single trim model, its standard features along with available customization are simply one of a class in such a development stage. The driving pursuit and the command over it are also generous for any enthusiast. Its stature could have been elaborated even more if it would have gone a little more on its range but one can avoid that for now considering such assets on offer. 

Features
9.0/10

The 2022 Porsche Taycan features at $82,700 with standard assets like heated front seats, a 10-speaker audio system, and Direct Touch Control Center Console on the inside. While the Porsche Active Aerodynamics and Porsche Active Suspension Management have been integrated from a handling perspective.

The Porsche Taycan 2022 hosts a 16.8-inch instrument panel and Porsche Communication Management as well along with the pairs of 19-inch Aero wheels to ride on. Apart from these, the other specs include the functionality of Porsche Recuperation Management and adaptive rear spoiler too which come as inherent to it.

The 2022 Porsche Taycan sedan isn't the perfect electric vehicle, but its combination of driving verve and performance stamina make it the most engaging one - Car And Driver

The 2022 Porsche Taycan Electric boasts an exemplary 321 hp powered by its base 79.2 kWh Performance Battery that is in tandem with a 2-speed direct drive transmission in an RWD layout. Moreover, it goes even more blistering in its thrill through Overboost Power with the Launch Control that upscales the power curve to 402 hp. This gets a little more to handle for amateurs as we incline to own the 93.4 kWh Performance Battery Plus which supports a performance of  469 hp and 263 lb-ft of torque.

Considering the dynamics front, the Porsche Taycan 0 60 MPH timing of 5.1-seconds 0-60 MPH while having a top speed of 143 MPH is simply desirable. It has the ability to bash the ground with its quarter-mile run of 13.7 seconds as well. And, to complement such thrust under its Sport, Launch, and Range modes, Taycan fits in Porsche Active Suspension Management and Porsche Traction Management along with Porsche Active Aerodynamics beside the duo of Warn and Brake Assist and Regeneration System.

Interior
8.0/10

"The Taycan is a comfortable four-seater with individual rear seats." - CarsDirect

The 2022 Porsche Taycan interior is a package of partial/fully leather upholstery for its 8-way power-adjustable front seats. Being enshrined in Black, Grey, and Black/Limestone Beige accents, these seats are not just premium touches but a highly cushioned heated nestling for you that can upgrade to 18-way Adaptive Sport Seats after spending an additional $1,930. And so do the ventilation function for an investment of $850 and 3-stage heated front and rear seats with distinct controls at $530. 

The interior Porsche Taycan 2022 has been incorporated with 7-interior ambient LED lighting as well that can enlighten that blacked-out ambiance, however, it comes optional for this electric drive at an extra $500. Speaking of other optional extensions for the Taycan highlights the Slate Gray and Blackberry seating shades besides the RaceTex trims in Black and Graphite Blue at $4,100 each, and Club Leatherette in Basalt Black($6,570) and Truffle Brown($6,570) along with a cargo capacity of 14.3 cu-ft

Bodywork that includes distinct styling features, still with an overall Porsche-ness yet different enough to stand on their own merits - Kelley Blue Book

The 2022 Porsche Taycan flatters you with its engaging design philosophy that now fashions in infinite color options including the Neptune Blue and Carmine Red, kudos to its all-new "Paint to Sample". And the Porsche Taycan 19-inch aero wheels keep that flamboyant appeal at its best that can be switched to the available 20-inch and 21-inch wheels too. While that adaptive rear spoiler along with a rear diffuser adds that slight touch to its sportiness from the back. 

Moreover, the Porsche Taycan 2022 front fascia has been sculpted to get you at it with its active air intake flaps that are in flow with those Automatic Activated LED headlights integrated with 4-point DRLs. On top of that, it has vertical air curtains as well further embraced by the lower valence black inlays. In addition to these, Porsche has equipped Taycan with optional virtues such as the $9,560 priced SportDesign Package in Carbon Fiber.

As per data, the 2022 Porsche Taycan weighs nearly 500 lbs less than the Audi e-Tron GT which tends to help it in its braking performance when decelerating from a high speed. Apart from this, there is no major gap in their dimensions which is why they exhibit a parallel handling control on both straights and corners. Some of the notable exterior features have been mentioned below:

  • Summer performance tires

Safety
9.0/10

The 2022 Porsche Taycan has got no safety rating simply for its low volume high price stature. But its fully galvanized steel-aluminum hybrid lightweight bodyshell along with Integrated Porsche 4D Chassis Control is a cornerstone of structural integrity and impact resilience in its own right. And to further expand its safety prowess Porsche has armed the Taycan with the mentioned safety assets:

  • Forward collision mitigation
  • Lane-keeping assist
  • Front and rear parking sensors
  • Auto-dimming mirrors
  • Adaptive headlights
  • Blind-spot monitoring (optional)
  • Surround-view camera system (optional)
  • Adaptive cruise control (optional)
  • Night vision (optional)

2022 Porsche Taycan Vs. 2022 Tesla Model S

The 2022 Tesla Model S has got both performance and range economy that is far superior to the 2022 Porsche Taycan. In terms of tech-ends as well, Tesla is one of class in its own senses. Even the cabin spaciousness is pretty generous inside the Tesla. So, Tesla is the easy pick between the two.  

2022 Porsche Taycan Vs. 2022 Audi e-Tron GT

The 2022 Porsche Taycan struggles to keep up against the 2022 Audi e-Tron GT in performance dynamics. Though the variation is manageable between the two in terms of their range but e-Tron GT has the advantage here as well just like its technology. All in all, the Audi fulfills the likes of this segment with its better virtues altogether. 

2022 Porsche Taycan Vs. 2022 Lucid Air

The 2022 Porsche Taycan has a lot to improve when it comes to its electric powertrain and corresponding return, especially when compared to the Lucid Air. Double the range and exceptional performance orientation are two of the most recognizable leads that Air has over the Taycan. In their cabin technology and involvement, nothing much can be made out to be different. So, holistically speaking, it has to be Lucid Air for now. 

 

Final Verdict

The 2022 Porsche Taycan is one of the extremes in the segment with impressive performance, handling, safety, and tech features. The accents inside the interior and exterior outlook are also exemplary of its status. But when you pit the rivals against it, these same figures seem meager and need an upgrade. Hence, it is surely not a pick for now.
