New 2024 Porsche Taycan: Price, specs and release date
The new Porsche Taycan aims to build on the success of the firm’s acclaimed electric car with more performance, more tech and more range.
The new Porsche Taycan now has up to 35% more battery range, with the longest-range version now travelling for more than 420 miles on a single charge.
The new Porsche Taycan is even faster as well – the fastest now offers 0-62mph performance in a barely-believable 2.4 seconds.
The new Porsche Taycan continues to be offered as a regular saloon, along with the versatile new Porsche Taycan Cross Turismo and the new Porsche Taycan Sport Turismo all-rounder.
The new Porsche Taycan’s 2024 enhancements mean it will provide an even sterner challenge to models such as the new BMW i5, the Mercedes-AMG EQE and, at the lower end, the Jaguar I-Pace. The upcoming new Audi A6 e-tron will be an interesting new rival too.
