an 800-volt electrical architecture enables a maximum charging capacity of 225 kw for the performance battery or 270 kw for the performance battery plus. with either battery, and under ideal circumstances, charging from 5% to 80% state of charge can occur in as little as 22.5 minutes. porsche customers can go to amazon for convenient installation of a 240v home charging plug or charging device.



the taycan 4s features 19-inch aerodynamically optimized wheels and brake calipers painted in red, typical of porsche’s two-door sports cars. for the first time, porsche is offering an entirely leather-free interior, made from recycled materials that underscore the sustainable concept of the electric sports car.
