2022 Porsche Taycan 4S vs Audi e-tron GT
The market for luxury sport EV’s is slowly starting to grow more and more. Making the choice between a Porsche Taycan 4S and an Audi e-tron GT might be a bit tricky but we’re here to help break it down for you. Most car brands tend to focus on one or two main aspects like performance, technology, and style. None of these brands can do it quite like Porsche can.
Now when it comes to performance and agility, electric vehicles face no struggles with these two topics, the Porsche Taycan 4S instead thrives with them. As proof to that statement, take this quote from Reese Counts at Edmunds, “We expected a lot from the Taycan, and in common Porsche fashion, it overdelivers. We thought it’d be quick and it is. At Edmunds’ test track, our 4S test car ripped from 0 to 60 mph in just 3.6 seconds. Did we mention this car weighs over 5,100 pounds? That’s as much as a Ford F-150. You wouldn’t know it from the way it goes around corners either. There’s the effortless balance and ease of a rear-wheel-drive sports car, but with ridiculous amounts of traction and thrust exiting corners. It kind of feels like cheating. The brakes feel and perform amazingly, offering ample stopping power and none of the artificialness that’s common among today’s EVs and hybrids.”
In the world of electric vehicles, range and charging times are important factors to consider. Martin Padgett from The Car Connection says, “We give the Taycan a 10 for efficiency, for its electric driving range of between 199 and 227 miles. With available 19.2-kwh charging, the Taycan does refuel quickly—especially on 800-volt-compatible CCS fast chargers like those at some Electrify America stations. There it can charge its battery from 0 to 80 percent in about 20 minutes. On a home-grade Level 2 charger it takes more like 9 hours. Off the latest-and-greatest 800-volt fast-charge hardware, it can be faster to charge if your Taycan has the 400V/150-kw onboard auxiliary charger.”
So there you have it, the Porsche Taycan checks off all the boxes on what is needed for a successful luxury electric vehicle. We’ll wrap things up with a quote written by Willis Kuelthau from Motortrend that says “The Porsche Taycan is the marque’s first stab at an all-electric model. In most ways, it’s a winner. It’s as brilliant to drive as it is to look at, and it provides a promising look at the future of performance cars.”
