Porsche has just announced a new Taycan variant named the “Taycan 4S.”
This variant a bit more affordable and perhaps aims to give a tougher time to Tesla Model S sales now that Porsche Taycan production is in full swing at the company’s purpose-built Zuffenhausen factory.
Porsche Taycan 4S is launching with 2 battery pack options. The standard Taycan 4S has a 79.2 kWh battery pack, and then there’s the 93.4 kWh battery size option.
The Taycan 4S with the smaller battery size ( “Performance Battery” ) has an estimated range of 407 km (252 miles), while the larger battery pack (Performance Plus) delivers 463 km (287 miles) of range.
The Taycan 4S has a smaller battery pack and a smaller rear motor when compared to the Turbo and Turbo S.
The price is expected to be around $100,000 to counter the Tesla Model S Performance (formerly called the P100D), which is available for just under $100,000.
