This video shows us that the EPA rating for the Porsche Taycan Turbo of just 201 miles might not be all that accurate. This test driver went 295 miles on a charge.
The driver of the Taycan Turbo featured here is Alex Roy. A name that most of us likely know by now. Roy is accustomed to electric cars and has lots of experience with long-distance driving in EVs. Alex is a Tesla owner too and he says:
“…there’s no universe in which a Tesla can approach its EPA ratings in real-world driving. Every Tesla I’ve ever driven displayed wildly optimistic range projections.”
This is why he also doubted the 201-mile range rating for the Taycan Turbo. However, his doubt here was that the EPA figures were way too low, so a test drive was lined up to find out if the Taycan could outdo that EPA number.
