Porsche Taycan vs. Tesla Model S


  • When it comes to luxury EVs like the Porsche Taycan and the Tesla Model S, you must consider range numbers flexibly. The new base Porsche Taycan 4S is officially rated to deliver 203 miles of range, although there are others who have suggested the range could be as high as 300 miles. The Tesla Model S has achieved a higher range than that over the years, but it's worth asking yourself how often your trips will exceed 200 miles.
  • Charging for both vehicles can easily be done at home. The Taycan uses a 220V system at home, taking anywhere from 9.5 to 10.5 hours to charge, allowing you to plug-in when you get home, get a good night's sleep and be ready to hit the road in the morning. If you upgrade your charging system or use a 440V charger while you're on the go, charging time allows you to reach near a full charge in around 1.5 hours. Using a 220V charger at home will charge the Tesla Model S in 12 hours, with slightly under 1.5 hours of charging time using a 440V charger.
  • Both vehicles offer impressive acceleration and top speed numbers. The base Porsche Taycan model can reach a top speed of 155 mph, as can the new Tesla Model S base model, but that's the top speed for all models. The new Porsche Taycan Turbo S models pack in 750-horsepower and can reach up to 161 mph, with a 0-60 mph time of just 2.6 seconds.

Interior and Technology

  • Both the Porsche Taycan and the Tesla Model S feature a large touchscreen display for you to control various features while you're on the go. However, in the Tesla Model S, the touchscreen controls all, while the Taycan gives you easier control and access through traditional buttons and knobs, giving you select control of the features you want without having to access menus and settings.
  • The new Porsche Taycan also offers standard Apple CarPlay, allowing you to enjoy seamless integration of your compatible smartphone device. The Tesla Model S doesn't offer Apple CarPlay.

Why Choose the New Porsche Taycan?

When it comes down to what you want out of an electric sports car, you have to ask yourself whether you want maximize the electric technology and range, or you want to enjoy the experience of driving day in and day out. The new Porsche Taycan excels in its electric vehicle engineering, but it also does well to remain a vehicle that makes every outing behind the wheel more enjoyable.
