The Porsche Taycan, like many other EVs from other luxury carmakers, comes with a high price tag.
Pure-electric Taycan will begin at Rs. 1.50 crore, followed by the Taycan Cross Turismo at Rs. 1.70 crore and the refreshed 2022 Macan at Rs. 83.21 lakhs (Ex-Showroom Price, India).
Porsche Taycan & Taycan Cross Turismo
Available in standard, 4S, Turbo and Turbo S variants, the trendy electric car comes with full LED lights, a stunning design and a cabin that brims with technology.
For example, in the cabin, Porsche offers a 16.8-inch driver’s display, 2 10.9-inch touchscreens, and an 8.4-inch screen for controlling the cabin temperature.
Also, there are touch-sensitive panels instead of standard buttons, smartphone connectivity, over-the-air updates, and several other features. As one moves up the variant ladder, more kits like 18-way powered seats, matrix LED headlights, among others, will be offered.
Taycan Cross Turismo estates are available in India in 4S, Turbo, and Turbo S grades. The more rugged Taycan has a higher ground clearance (30 mm), making it more practical.
Taycan RWD has a 79.2 kWh battery, 408 horsepower, and a claimed range of 484 km. The Taycan 4S has the same battery pack, but it has an all-wheel-drive (AWD) system with 530 horsepower.
The Turbo and Turbo S also have AWD, a larger 93.4 kWh battery, and 680 HP and 761 HP power outputs. Unsurprisingly, the Turbo S with 1050 Nm of torque is the fastest of the bunch, being able to accelerate from 0-100 km/hr in 2.8 seconds.
For the Taycan Cross Turismo, the 4S model has 571 horsepower, while the Turbo and Turbo S have the same output as the 4-door coupe. In addition, the entry-level Cross Turismo can only travel 456 km in one go.
EVs can be charged at speeds of up to 350 kW, and Porsche claims their superchargers can recharge battery packs from 5 to 80 percent in 20 minutes. The battery can be recharged in 9 hours using a 11 kW charger.
2022 Macan facelift
Although the German automaker will sell the Macan in standard, S, and GTS grades, only the base model’s asking price has been revealed so far.
The crossover will receive cosmetic and mechanical upgrades for model year 2022 (MY22). A new radiator grille, LED headlamps, a ‘Sport Design’ ORVM, larger wheels, and a revised diffuser have been added. The GTS variant will be distinguished from the regular variants by sporty elements.
There is a new gear selector and a touch-sensitive panel in place of normal buttons on the center console.
The 2022 Macan has Porsche Dynamic Light System (PDLS) and Sport Chrono package and a 10.9-inch infotainment touchscreen and Apple CarPlay.
As of now, the Macan 2022 is powered by a 265 HP, 2.0-litre turbo-petrol engine. The 2.9-liter twin-turbo V6 making 380 HP and 440 HP will be available in the upcoming Macan S and GTS models. Standard features include a 7-speed dual-clutch transmission and all-wheel drive.
