Porsche Upgrades Taycan for MY22, Equips EVs With More Range

The 2022 Porsche Taycan will also feature remote parking.
Porsche has updated the Taycan for model year 2022, making significant improvements to the widespread electric car.

Despite sales of approximately 20,000 Taycans in the first half of 2021, sales of the Electric Vehicle (EV) are on par with the 911, the automaker has decided to spice things up.

With improvements to the drivetrain, the 2022 Porsche Taycan will have a better range in real life. Now, in Normal and Range modes, the front electric motor is almost completely decoupled. Also, while coasting, no drive is sent to either axle.

According to the German firm, the battery can now be heated at a slightly higher temperature than before to assist fast charging at a higher charge level.
There are more features on offer for the model year 2022 too. The car also comes with a new infotainment layout and operating system, upgraded satellite navigation system and Voice Pilot assistant, and Android Auto. Up until now, it was only available with Apple CarPlay.
Porsche says it operates almost 2 lakh chargers, including about 6500 fast chargers, across Europe
Moreover, there is a new Remote Park Assist function (the car can be parked using a smartphone!) which can be accessed through the Porsche Connect app on offer as well.

Porsche has also decided to bring back the vibrant colors with its cars in the ’90s for the 2022 Taycan.

Though there are 17 standard colors on offer, through Porsche Exclusive Manufaktur, a customer can access ‘Paint to Sample’ and ‘Paint to Sample Plus’ services.

The first option brings 65 additional colors to the table, including Acid Green and Rubystar Red, while the Paint to Sample Plus gives a customer the freedom to choose any color they may like.

The EV remains unchanged mechanically. Despite its base model’s 408 PS, the Turbo S has 761 PS. The car with a larger battery can travel up to 484 kilometers (claimed) on a single charge.
