Porsche’s Biggest Seller in November was the Taycan
Porsche has revealed the brand’s biggest seller in the UK throughout November was the full-electric sports car, the Porsche Taycan. This meant the Taycan even outperformed the Porsche Macan SUV, which is usually the brand’s sales champion. So, what makes this a highly desirable electric car? Read our full review below to find out.
What’s the Taycan like?
With prices starting from £83,580 incl. VAT, the Porsche Taycan is bursting with amazing elements. The name “Taycan” translates to “lively young horse” which we think is perfect for this powerful and performance-oriented car.
In particular, we like the design of this car, as it offers the high quality and look of a traditional Porsche whilst appealing to the increasing demand for electric cars. The Taycan takes the form of a luxurious four-door saloon but it also incorporates coupe design cues. Highlights of the exterior include four-point LED headlights, the lateral air intakes and two roof options - one contoured made from light aluminium, the other panoramic glass. Meanwhile, the interior features a fantastic 16.8-inch curved digital screen, advanced climate control, as well as front and rear luggage compartments. In terms of features, we especially like the assistance systems on this car. This includes Active Lane Keep & Traffic Jam Assist, as well as Lane Change Assist and Night Vision Assist, just to mention a few. In addition, Porsche Connect enables an array of innovative services to enhance your driving experience.
Our excitement for this car continues when we look at the performance and range capacity available. The Taycan is stylish, sporty and extremely rapid. It’s reported that the Taycan Turbo S can achieve 0-62mph in as little as 2.8 seconds and has a top speed of 162mph! These figures are very impressive! Furthermore, the electric performance of the Taycan is superb as it can achieve up to 62 mile (WLTP) of range in only five minutes (under optimum conditions). A charging range of 241-256 miles (model range) is excellent.
The Porsche Taycan has everything you can want from an electric car and deserves a rating of 4.7/5 stars from GB Vehicle Leasing. This electric car combines excellent range, in-car technologies and superior performance, making to easy to see why it’s proving very popular on the EV market. The only drawback we can really think of with the Taycan is the hefty price tag.
