Porsche extends electric model range with the Taycan 4S
It was only in September that the new electric sports car from Porsche celebrated its premiere. Now, the company is already presenting the third version of the sports saloon with the Taycan 4S. The new model is available with two battery sizes and delivers with the Performance battery up to 530 PS or with the Performance battery Plus up to 571 PS.
Following the Taycan Turbo S and the Taycan Turbo, the Taycan 4S is therefore the new entry-level model in the series.
A single-deck Performance battery with a total capacity of 79.2 kWh comes as standard. The two-deck Performance battery Plus familiar from the Taycan Turbo S and Taycan Turbo is optionally available. The total capacity here is 93.4 kWh.
The power output and range therefore vary correspondingly. In both variants, the Taycan 4S accelerates from a standing start to 100 km/h in 4.0 seconds. The top speed is also 250 km/h in both cases. The range is up to 407 kilometres with the Performance battery and up to 463 kilometres with the Performance battery Plus, the highest value of the current Taycan range. The maximum charging capacity (peak) is 225 kW (Performance battery) or 270 kW (Performance battery Plus).
Distinguishing features of the Taycan 4S compared with the Turbo and Turbo S include the aerodynamically optimised 19-inch Taycan S Aero wheels and the red-painted brake callipers. The front apron with new geometry, side sills and rear diffuser in black ensure further visual differentiation.
LED headlights including Porsche Dynamic Light System Plus (PDLS Plus) are equipped as standard, like the Taycan 4S comes with a partial leather interior as well as front comfort seats with eight-way electrical adjustment as standard.
With the Taycan, Porsche offers an entirely leather-free interior for the first time. Interiors made from innovative recycled materials underscore the sustainable concept of the electric sports car.
The Taycan 4S can be ordered immediately and will arrive in European dealerships in January 2020. Prices in Italy start at 109,115 euros.
