Home and Destination Charging (0 -> 100%)
Charging is possible by using a regular wall plug or a charging station. Public charging is always done through a charging station. How fast the EV can charge depends on the charging station (EVSE) used and the maximum charging capacity of the EV. The table below shows all possible options for charging the Porsche Taycan. Each option shows how fast the battery can be charged from empty to full.
NOTE: Porsche has not released details about the on-board charger of the Taycan. The information below is based on estimatation of the most likely on-board charger.
|Type 2 (Mennekes - IEC 62196)|
|Charging Point||Max. Power||Power||Time||Rate|
|Wall Plug (2.3 kW)||230V / 1x10A||2.3 kW||46h15m||6 mph|
|1-phase 16A (3.7 kW)||230V / 1x16A||3.7 kW||28h45m||9 mph|
|1-phase 32A (7.4 kW)||230V / 1x32A||7.4 kW||14h30m||18 mph|
|3-phase 16A (11 kW)||400V / 3x16A||11 kW||9h45m||27 mph|
|3-phase 32A (22 kW)||400V / 3x32A||22 kW †||5 hours||53 mph|
† = Limited by on-board charger, vehicle cannot charge faster.
Rapid Charging (10 -> 80%)
Rapid charging enables longer journeys by adding as much range as possible in the shortest amount of time. Charging power will decrease significantly after 80% state-of-charge has been reached. A typical rapid charge therefore rarely exceeds 80% SoC. The rapid charge rate of an EV depends on the charger used and the maximum charging power the EV can handle. The table below shows all details for rapid charging the Porsche Taycan.
Porsche has not released details about rapid charging the Taycan. The information below is based on estimated values of the most likely rapid charging capabilities.
- Max. Power: maximum power provided by charge point
- Avg. Power: average power provided by charge point over a session from 10% to 80%
- Time: time needed to charge from 10% to 80%
- Rate: average charging speed over a session from 10% to 80%
|Combined Charging System (CCS Combo 2)|

All about the Porsche Taycan
This electric vehicle is a concept: data marked with * are estimates and other data might not be officially confirmed. The text below is written as if the Porsche Taycan would be available today. Please note that data for the final production version might differ significantly from the concept. The purpose of listing this concept vehicle is to give an insight in upcoming vehicles and EV trends.
The Porsche Taycan has an estimatedn On The Road Price (OTR) of £123,500. The OTR Price includes VAT, first year of VED, vehicle first registration fee, number plates and delivery. The Porsche Taycan is eligible for a Plug-In Car Grant (PICG) of £3,500. The grant will be applied to the invoice of the car. The OTR Price including the PICG for the Porsche Taycan is £120,000.
Drivetrain and Performance
The Porsche Taycan is a full electric vehicle (BEV). The estimated maximum power of the Porsche Taycan is 440 kW (590 hp). The estimated maximum torque is 664 lb-ft. The Porsche Taycan is all wheel drive and can accelerate from 0 to 62 miles per hour in an estimated 3.5 seconds. The estimated top speed is 155 mph.
Battery and Charging
The battery of the Porsche Taycan has an estimated total capacity of 96 kWh. The usable capacity is 90 kWh (estimate). An estimated range of about 265 miles is achievable on a fully charged battery. The actual range will however depend on several factors including climate, terrain, use of climate control systems and driving style.
For example: sustaining high speeds in cold weather could result in a range of around 195 mi. However, driving at low speeds in mild weather will increase the range to around 380 mi.
Charging is done using a Type 2 connector and the on-board charger has a maximum power of 22 kW. This charges a fully depleted battery back to full in around 5 hours. However, a 3-phase grid connection is needed to achieve this. The majority of homes and charge points currently do not have this connection. In most cases the maximum charging power will be 7.4 kW, allowing for a charge time of 14 hours 30 minutes and a charge rate of 19 mph. Charging the car using a regular wall plug will take around 46 hours 15 minutes.
Rapid charging is possible through a CCS connection (expected). The maximum rapid charge power is 250 kW. The battery can't be charged continuously at this power. In an average rapid charge session the average charge power will be around 175 kW. This charges the battery from 10% to 80% in around 25 minutes. A rapid charge like this will add about 185 miles of range.
The estimated combined (motorway and city) energy consumption of the Porsche Taycan is about 335 Wh per mile. By comparison, this energy consumption is the equivalent of a fuel consumption of 119 mpg in a traditional petrol car.
The actual energy consumption will depend on several factors including climate, terrain, use of climate control systems and driving style. For example: sustaining high speeds in cold weather could result in an energy use of around 460 Wh per mile. However, driving at low speeds in mild weather will increase the efficiency to about 235 Wh per mile.
The Porsche Taycan emits no CO2 during driving. This only includes direct emissions from the vehicle itself. The energy needed to charge the battery might have been (partly) generated by the use of fossil fuels. Vehicles with an internal combustion engine will always emit CO2 during driving. Additionally, CO2 is emitted during the production and transport of fossil fuels.
