Besides driving at the speed limit, the team kept the climate control and the sound system on at all times to make the test as relevant as possible for the average user. After all, most people do not want to trade comfort for driving range.
So, how many miles did the Taycan 4S cover until its battery ran completely dry? That would be 259.2 miles (417.1 kilometers), which is bang in the middle of the official estimate of 242–288 miles (389–463 km) for the Taycan 4S with the optional Performance Battery Plus. It’s essential to note that the trip’s average speed was a respectable 57 mph (92 km/h), which means the test took place mostly outside the city.
What’s more interesting is the time it took for the battery to be replenished to 80% using a 350 kW fast charger: 21 minutes!
