Porsche hat ein neues Basismodell in China mit mehr Reichweite, dafür aber nur mit Hinterradantrieb, vorgestellt.
The new base Taycan costs 888,000 RMB ($125,404 US) priced $36,823 below the Taycan 4S, which costs 1.148 million yuan ($162,227 US) in China. In the US, the Taycan 4S has a base MSRP of $103,800 (excluding destination charge). The new base Taycan has the same battery offerings as the 4S. A 79.2 kWh battery pack is standard, compared to the standard 93.4 kWh pack in the Turbo and Turbo S.
The larger 93.4 kWh „Performance Battery Plus“ can be ordered as an option for the new base Taycan just as it is for 4S. In the US, the cost for the Performance Battery Plus adds an additional $6,580. The 4S has a dual-motor powertrain which puts out 523 hp and 472 lb-ft of torque.
The new base Taycan’s range, according to the liberal NEDC rating is up to 256 miles with the 79.2 kWh „Performance Battery“, and 303 miles with the 93.4 kWh Performance Battery Plus, giving the base model the longest driving range of any Taycan.
