New entry-level Porsche Taycan 4S revealed

Porsche is offering the Taycan 4S with two battery pack options & some subtle visual changes, to differentiate it from the more powerful Turbo & Turbo S.

Less than six weeks ago, Porsche had formally taken the wraps off its first-ever all-electric offering, the Taycan. The car, however, had been revealed in Turbo & Turbo S guises, which happen to be the most powerful derivatives in the line-up. Now though, Porsche has introduced the third, entry-level variant in the form of the Taycan 4S. Like its more powerful siblings, the Taycan 4S retains a majority of the mechanical bits like the twin electric motors (the rear motor on the Taycan 4S is 80mm shorter than the corresponding motor on the Turbo/Turbo S), a two-speed transmission & the world-first 800V electrical system that supports lightning-quick charging speeds.

The Taycan 4S comes equipped with a 79.2kWh single-deck Performance battery as standard, However, Porsche will also offer the bigger, 93.4kWh two-deck Performance battery Plus on the 4S as well. The latter is the same battery that powers the Taycan Turbo & Turbo S. With the former, the Taycan 4S has a power output of 523bhp & with the latter, the power goes up to 563bhp. Irrespective of the battery option though, the Taycan 4S hits the 100km/h mark in 4.0 seconds flat & goes up to a top speed of 250 km/h. With the Performance battery, the Taycan 4S can drive up to 407km on a single charge and with the Performance battery Plus, the range goes up to 463km.
