2022 Porsche Taycan electric Engine and Performance

8.0/10

"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 has a 79.2 kWh Performance Battery that electrifies 321 hp of power. This figure takes a surge to 402 hp when operated through Overboost Power with the Launch Control. It is hitched with a 2 -speed automatic transmission in an RWD layout for a perfect rear mass transfer acceleration. Alongside the former, comes the 93.4 kWh Performance Battery Plus that can kick a power performance of up to 469 hp and 263 lb-ft of torque.  

The Porsche Taycan has got the agility and command to guide the power with its Porsche Active Suspension Management and Porsche Traction Management. These two maintain the grip at the contact patches of the wheel and make the mechanical adjustments while speeding through Sport, Launch, and Range modes. Based on the aforementioned modes, one can prefer to bring about the power output changes and make upshifts in driving dynamics.

The 2022 Taycan accelerates from 0-60 MPH in 5.1 seconds and can hit the track with its top speed of 143 MPH. In order to restrict such performance curve, it is given 6-piston in the front and 4-piston aluminum monobloc fixed brake calipers in the rear with vented disc rotors. The Warn and Brake Assist and Regeneration System have been integrated as well for reducing the undesirable severity and waste energy conversion respectively.

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

Some of the other notable features have been listed:

  • Summer performance tires

2022 Porsche Taycan electric Safety

9.0/10

"while the rigidity of the Taycan may mean a more stable cabin, we've seen how passengers benefit in crashes where certain parts of the car around them actually give way or crumple" - BusinessInsider

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 mentioned 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)

2022 Porsche Taycan electric Competition

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

The 2022 Porsche Taycan has slightly better performance and acceleration than the 2022 Audi e-Tron. For range coverage, both are at par with each other but cabin management inside an Audi is altogether a different premium. The Audi e-Tron is seemingly less expensive too. Therefore, Audi gets the preference here. 

2022 Porsche Taycan Vs. 2022 BMW I4

The 2022 Porsche Taycan has an edge in performance dynamics while the BMW I4 is a range phenomenon. I4 also receives an opulent and tech-loaded interior that is exceptional in this class. Considering the seating comfort, both can be placed at the same level but the BMW badge is far less investment compared to the Porsche. 

 

2022 Porsche Taycan electric 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 it is that overhyped price tag that might dent its image against the rivals that are relatively way less expensive and offer almost parallel assets and values.
