Two battery options, significantly lower price

( – Porsche really does not waste time. Less than six weeks after the launch of the Taycan and Turbo S turbines, the sports car manufacturer has expanded the family of its sedan and remains true to the type designation. Say hello to the new Taycan 4S Porsche.

The new debut in the electric Porsche world is based on the same ingredients as Turbo and Turbo S. It has an electric motor by axle (and thus four-wheel drive), a two-speed transmission on the rear axle and an architecture of 800 volts, the very fast charging possible.

The new 4S comes standard with a 79.2 kWh lithium-ion battery, with the optional 93.4 kWh battery pack called Performance Battery Plus from Taycan Turbo and Turbo S. With the standard battery, the Taycan 4S reaches 530 hp, the more powerful battery option allows 571 hp.

Whatever the choice of battery, the Taycan 4S reaches a top speed of 250 km / h and an acceleration from 0 to 100 km / h of 4.0 seconds. The range according to the WLTP protocol goes up to 407 kilometers with a high-performance battery and up to 463 kilometers with a high-performance battery. The maximum charging power is 225 kW or 270 kW (with Performance Battery Plus). Ideally, the car should charge in 22.5 minutes from 5 to 80%.

On the visual side, the Taycan 4S is distinguished from its strong brothers and sisters by new 19-inch wheels and brake calipers painted red. There is also a modified front bumper, black side skirts and a black rear diffuser.

LED lights with Porsche Light Light Plus System (PDLS Plus) are standard. In the same way, an adaptive air-bag suspension and partial leather seats with eight electric adjustments.

In terms of price, the new 4S is well below the two previously available Taycans. With a starting price of 105,607 euros, it is 46,529 euros cheaper than the Taycan Turbo and even 79,849 euros cheaper than the Taycan Turbo S. Currently, Tesla offers its model S only with a battery of 100 kWh and a autonomy of 610 kilometers WLTP. 86 800 euros.

The Porsche Taycan 4S can be ordered now. The market launch will take place in January 2020.
