The 2020 Taycan proves a Porsche can also be electric

The idea of an all-electric Porsche likely ruffled some feathers among fans, but just like the company’s earlier Cayenne and Panamera, the 2020 Taycan easily silenced any doubters. This first EV from Porsche skillfully blended a half-century of sports car heritage into a high-tech sedan with stunning results.

The Taycan has the kind of immediate acceleration that EVs are known for, along with the road-holding handling that makes a Porsche a Porsche. It’s about the same size as the gas-powered Panamera and, besides the lack of engine noise, it delivers a very similar driving experience.

When the Porsche Taycan debuted, its only rival was the Tesla Model S. The Model S could out-accelerate the Taycan and had longer range estimates, but it was at a distinct disadvantage in terms of handling and build quality. The Taycan is a more complete sport sedan, with a significantly nicer interior and fewer technological glitches. It proves that Porsche is indeed ready for the coming electric revolution and has us excited for its next EV.

5 reasons to buy the 2020 Porsche Taycan Electric

What We Like

Sports car performance: While many EVs focus on range and efficiency, the Taycan prioritizes performance, as any Porsche should. Stomp the pedal and the sleek sedan rockets to 60 mph in under 4 seconds and it does so in relative silence. When driven hard, it doesn’t even feel as though you’re putting much stress on the powertrain. Handling is excellent, too, and it's almost as nimble as Porsche’s own 911.

Quick DC fast-charging times: The Taycan has taken measures to keep it future-proof with one of the highest DC fast-charge rates. If you can find a working charger with a rate up to 270 kW, you should be able to get from 5% of capacity to 80% in only 22 minutes. It’s rare for drivers to deplete their batteries that much, so expect even quicker turnarounds in real life.

Luxury-level interior: Sit behind the wheel of the Taycan and you’d be forgiven for mistaking it for any other Porsche. It has the same level of refinement, with an abundance of premium leather and high-quality plastics. It’s also built with a very rigid substructure that feels as though it was carved from a solid chunk of metal. There’s no hint of the creaks that would be easily detectable in an otherwise silent cabin.

What Needs Improvement

Rear seats could be more spacious: The Taycan has very few faults, and if we were to spotlight one, it would be its lack of rear passenger space. That’s not to say people will feel needlessly cramped back there. An average-size adult will have enough space, but other sedans of this size offer more. If this is a deal breaker for you, take heart. Porsche added a more accommodating Cross Turismo wagon variant to the lineup in 2021.
