Porsche Taycan 4S Cross Turismo Luxury Electric
The Porsche Taycan offers an exhilarating driving experience that sets it apart from all other luxury electric vehicles. Electric vehicles have traditionally focused on efficiency and smooth performance in the past. But Porsche delivers a thrilling ride that feels like a high-end sports car, paired with the unbeatable efficiency of a fully electric motor. That is why the 2022 Porsche Taycan is one of the most exciting luxury electric vehicles available right now.

2022 Porsche Taycan Models

The fully electric Porsche Taycan is available in two body types: the standard Taycan sedan, as well as a Taycan Cross Turismo wagon. Each is available in five trim levels. In addition to the base trim, drivers can choose between the 4S, Turbo, Turbo S, or GTS.

For this 2022 Porsche Taycan review, all details will refer to the base Taycan unless otherwise stated.

Porsche Taycan Performance

As one might expect from Porsche, the Taycan is noted for its exceptional performance. The baseline model gets 402 horsepower from its fully electric motor and generates 254 lb.-ft. of torque. The Taycan can go from 0 to 60 in 5.1 seconds and has a top speed of 143 MPH. With that power comes 227 miles of range from the Taycan’s electric battery.

But where the Taycan really sets itself apart is in its acceleration and handling. The Taycan drives like a powerful sports car, unmatched by most other EVs on the road. The Taycan handles with more precision than most other electric vehicles thanks to its aerodynamic design, race car-inspired steering, and low center of gravity.

Drivers looking to experience the best that Porsche has to offer should check out the Taycan Turbo S model. This extra-powerful sedan offers 750 horsepower and can go from 0-60 MPH in just 2.6 seconds, topping out at 161 MPH.

Taycan DesignThe interior of the new Porsche Taycan 4S Cross Turismo

The Porsche Taycan is unmistakable from the outside. Its low-arched body is sporty and dynamic and looks exhilarating even when you are not behind the wheel. That design is both functional and stylish, as it helps the Taycan reach faster speeds without sacrificing control.

Inside, the Taycan continues to deliver elegance and luxury. Porsche has equipped its signature EV model with many of its best gadgets and technologies. Multiple digital displays light up the dashboard, from the 16.8-inch curved informational display to an 8.4-inch center console touchscreen.

True to its form, the Porsche Taycan uses deep, sporty seating arrangements. Owners can choose between OLEA club leather or a leather-free interior. For full customization, LED ambient lighting is available in some models.

Taycan Technology

The Porsche Taycan offers a full range of wireless technologies. From Apple CarPlay and Android Auto to built-in navigation and weather updates accessible from your touchscreen center console. Higher trim levels also have voice recognition software, allowing for a hands-free navigational experience.

The Taycan is also equipped with an array of advanced safety and driver assistance features. Adaptive cruise control, lane keep assist, surround view monitors, and Porsche’s own Intelligent Range Manager all provide the driver with safety and support on the road.
