Porsche Taycan EV updated, priced, here from July '24

More power and greater range for updated Porsche Taycan, now up to $15K dearer

7 Feb 2024

PORSCHE has released details of its facelifted Taycan range this week, the all-electric model arriving in Australian showrooms from July with more power, greater range, and a dearer list price.


Updates to the Porsche Taycan centre on chassis, driveline, and technology equipment, the car almost identical physically to the model it replaces. Porsche will continue to offer the Taycan in both sedan and Cross Turismo wagon body styles with up to four grades available from launch.


Pricing for the 2024 Porsche Taycan rises locally by as much as $15,100 with the base-grade variant now beginning at $175,100 plus on-road costs. The current flagship Taycan Turbo S will retail from $375,200 + ORC (full pricing is detailed below).


For the entry-grade Porsche Taycan rear-wheel drive we now find an output of 300kW when using Launch Control mode and 240kW in regular driving. Porsche says the model will accelerate from 0-100km/h in 4.8 seconds, a reduction of 0.6 seconds.


At the other end of the scale, the Taycan S Turbo all-wheel drive boast 570kW of output in regular operation and 700kW in Launch Control mode. Porsche quotes a 0-100km/h acceleration time of 2.4 seconds – a 0.4 second improvement over the outgoing model.


In keeping the Taycan moving longer, Porsche has upped battery capacity from 93.5kWh to 105kWh across all variants while reducing pack weight by 9kg. Depending on the variant, the pack can deliver between 597km and 698km driving range on the WLTP scale.


The battery pack is further improved by a new cooling system that aims to maintain temperature between 15 and 35 degrees Celsius to provide faster charge time. Charging begins more quickly, and now takes a claimed 18 minutes to go from 10 to 80 per cent (320kW DC).


Further, the regenerative braking capacity of the Taycan is now increased to 400kW, up from 290kW. The change joins other efficiency and aerodynamic enhancements – including aero-styled 21-inch alloy wheels – Porsche says adds as much as 40km to the overall range claim.


Adaptive air suspension is now offered as standard on all variants with Porsche Active Ride suspension available optionally on all-wheel drive variants, adding further to the model’s comfort and dynamic abilities. The suspension also rises 55m when the vehicle is parked to make getting in and out even easier.


While the Taycan range is visually similar to the outgoing model, there are subtle changes aimed at separating lower and upper grades. These include a new front bumper, headlights, sill covers, rear bumper, and tail-light graphics, as well as badging in Tubonite grey.


Porsche’s four-point LED headlights now feature matrix technology on all grades with HD lighting a cost option.


Inside, the instrumentation and infotainment arrays score a mild refresh with new-look graphics and all-new Apple CarPlay+ smartphone integration. An optional passenger screen is available.


Other new features include standard LED ambient cabin lighting, a more powerful wireless phone charging pad with built-in cooler, an automated parking system, power-fold mirrors and an online charging location system known as Porsche Intelligent Range Manager that assists in finding a nearby charger.


On the safety front, Porsche has added a driver fatigue monitor to the ADAS bundle alongside a reversing camera and active swerve assist.


The 2024 Porsche Taycan range will arrive in Australian dealerships from July.
