ავტომობილები & ტრანსპორტი

The 2021 Porsche Taycan 4S can do 0-60 in 3.7secs & 0-100mph in just 8.5secs but what’s it like to live with Porsche's first production electric car and what happens when you try to charge it away from home on one of the new generation pay as you go Instavolt fast chargers? Find out here..

    No EV for me yet, I’d sooner spend £40k on a nice Cayenne 4.2d V8, over 600lb/ft of torque, nearly 400bhp and 40mpg not to mention I can refuel from empty to brim in 15 minutes. What’s not to like?

    Will never charge at full rate unless low on charge and at right temperature... Also it’s far too low, small inside for a 5m By 2m wide when the x is the same size, faster, bigger and better charger infrastructure That noise is also stupid

    The battery pack needs to be at the correct temperature to take the higher charge rate. So to begin with it is using power to hear rather than charge. Once up to the correct temperature the battery can take the full 125kW. If it is set up to work the same as a Tesla if you put in the charge station to the sat nav, byt the time you get there the battery is pre heated to charge temp and then they charge straigh away at the headline rate.

    I continue to be surprised how wearing the brand Hugo Boss, can have the effect of diminishing the wearers credibility and integrity. It is well documented that the company’s founder was an active and life long supporter of the Nazi party. After the war he was fined, stripped of his right to vote in Germany and barred from running a company, although this was appealed a lesser charge of Nazi follower. However, in 1999 the company, was forced to apologise for using 140 Polish and 40 French concentration camp detainees as slave labour. Why anybody would openly wear such an offensive brand is beyond many of us. But am sure Harry is spot on with the car and today’s already won 4dr vs SUV thing.

    Is that whine the optional electronic sound? If so, it can be turned off. But why pay extra for the milk float sound? And if the whine is how the standard car sounds, then surely that's a bit of a misstep by Porsche. And finally, why do all motoring journalists pronounce the first syllable of Taycan to rhyme with 'pie'? Maybe that's how the Germans think it should be pronounced, but imho it should rhyme with 'say', as in the River Tay.

    The "stylists" who created the front half should be executed...the back half of the car is wonderfully sleek & aerodynamic. The front is all wrong, & "dorky" looking. Firstly, we have droopy looking "eyes", then to add insult to injury, we have what appears to be "running tears" from those "eyes". If indeed the car needs fresh-air, there are dozens of alternate ways & locations , and are far more descreet. If any car needs to return to the pop-up headlights, this is that car. This "air intake" theme is carried over past the wheel as an "extractor"...but I think it is more likely an esthetic excercise to tie into the concave door-skins. Note this concave shape vanishes rather quickly. It's almost as if two separate designs, one in the front and another in the back, a bipolar car.

    For the range, Nyland tested both the 2020 Model S Long Range and the 2020 Taycan 4S at 75mph, and the Tesla got 294 miles while the Taycan got 264 miles, so not a huge difference.

    the reason it wasn't charging at 125KW was because the battery was already half full. Its an exponential relationship, so the more charge the battery has, the slower it will charge up.

    18:30 £2.80 for 26 miles? Where's the massive electric financial advantage? My guess is charge from home(a plug!) is 50p? I've got a nasty feeling electric cars are putting up my electricity bill - "they" don't want you getting 'car juice' that cheap.

    I test drove the 4s and agree with Harrys comment about the electric wine noise "Jubalee Line" while accelerating and coasting. It definitely turned me off. He says couldn't they come up with a better sound? Not much mention of it except with Harry.They did its called artifial exhaust. The dealer immediately turned it on but I shut it down to listen to the Jubilee. Is it a real issue and annoyance. Great handling, power etc, but I did not like the wine.

    54% and 1 hour 11 minutes to charge it. I have driven many cars and even large trucks, but no matter how many litres I put in the tank, it never took over an hour to do it . And for the price of that car, I would rather listen to a V8 or V12 than a porsche with a bad diff noise.

    Great video Harry, thanks for this!! Does it route you via chargers automatically on longer routes Harry? That regen sounds annoying. Everytime you tweak the suspension or sport, it throws away your regen setting. That's what flappy paddles are for!! Coast mode sounds very un EV. Not sure I like that at all. I know they've added a fake pedal to have regen on the first inch of the brake pedal travel but sounds like a nuisance when one pedal is so easy (and so much fun for reading ahead!) You're probably at 82kW (NOT kWh!) charge rate due to high-ish SOC (62%) and cold battery (assuming short drive from home in Autumn).... Packaging looks rubbish, wonder if the Sport Turismo (estatey-thing) will be better?

  • 7S POWER

    19:07 It was charging at 82 kWh rather than the 125 kWh because the battery was already 50% > full. The lower charging rate was to protect the battery from degradation.

    so the electricity cost 10p per mile . and it took approximately 10 minutes to put the equivalent 3/4 of a gallon of petrol into the car. From what you are saying then if all the bays had been full it would have taken even longer to charge the car. So has this really improved since Clarkson et al tried to drive a long distance in electric cars a few years ago. Then if you go to Jay leno's page and look at his video on the 1900 Baker electric car and the 7000 charging points in new York at that time and i think you would cry. I also think that they should pay royalties to the designer of the 1960's Panhard CT 24 for various aspect of the car

    What gets me is nobody knows how long the batteris will last. I know my Audi and VW will be capable of 300,000 hassle free. i bet you will be replacing the batteries before 200,000 which will probably cost 70% of the vehicle. I'll stick with my A4 S line and Tiguan R diesels until I'm forced to change. In 10 years the technology will be 10 years more mature and mileage per charge much much greater and on par with current petrol/diesl cars and will charge in minutes rather than hours.

    Peak 125kW only available at lower state of charge. For anyone interested there is a lot of analysis on speed of charge (across whole SoC) on other channels. Its got to do with the heat generated when you push the chemistry harder and harder as the battery gets fuller.

    EV range doesn’t matter unless you drive for Uber. I would take a hit in range/efficiency any day to own a nice car instead of paying the same money for Tesla garbage. Besides, Taycan actually hits EPA range at 75 mph compared to Tesla which takes a 100-mi hit from advertised range. Coasting is more efficient than regen so Audi/Porsche have the correct approach and Tesla is wrong with one-pedal driving. One of many reasons why real-world difference in range is so much less than in EPA or WLTP figures.

    Nice video. The seat being tucked behind the B pillar is for safety, the low roof line opens up with the panoramic roof, and the charging speed didn’t reach 125 kw because the battery wasn’t low enough. All chargers slow as you pass ~80% and approach 100% to preserve battery health. Best charging behavior for better “fast charging” to to charge between ~20%-80% then you’d get that 125 kw. Great stuff. New subscriber hoping for more EV content.

    The Tincan, sorry Taycan would appear to be a great drivers car compared to other EVs. The handling and performance seem really excellent. However, I agree with you Harry, the packaging is a little odd. Maybe it is aimed at ageing 911 drivers who just need a "little" more room, but still want that Porsche feel. Personally, I'm happy with my Tesla Model S which is much more practical, has far superior range and comparative acceleration, but maybe slightly less driver feel. It's horses for courses, but I'm happy with my choice.
