After over two years since its global unveiling, the Porsche Taycan electric sports GT has finally arrived in India. It is offered in two trims: Saloon and Cross Turismo, priced from Rs 1.5 crore (ex-showroom).

While the ‘Saloon’ trim has four variants (Taycan, Taycan 4S, Turbo, and Turbo S), the ‘Cross Turismo’ has three (4S, Turbo, and Turbo S).

The Taycan is available in both single- and dual-motor variants; the former gets a 79.2kWh Performance Battery and the latter gets a 93.4kWh Performance Battery Plus, which has 800V system voltage for a peak charging capacity of 270kW. The performance and range varies across versions:

All variants of the Taycan claim a range of more than 400km, with the least powerful one offering the most range. The Taycan’s electric powertrain is also different from most EVs as it has a 2-speed gearbox for better driving dynamics. It also comes with adaptive air suspension as standard with Porsche’s Active Suspension Management (PASM). The Taycan Cross Tourismo is equipped with a ‘Gravel Mode’, which assists driving over rough terrains.

In terms of design, the Taycan, with its taut curves, muscular wheel arches, and sleek cabin, looks like a Panamera straight from the future. The rear is more pronounced and sits low and wide with the sleek connected taillamps, a typical Porsche design trait.

Porsche has also debuted its modern dashboard layout in the Taycan -- a distinctive digital instrument cluster with a cluster display. This display configuration features a three-dial setup that mimics the instrument cluster of a regular combustion-engined Porsche. It has a central 10.9-inch touchscreen infotainment system and a third vertically stacked display in the centre console for the climate controls. The Taycan also has a slim and sporty-looking steering wheel with the ‘mode selector’ dial. You can also have an optional fourth screen in the front with a passenger side display.

Other features include dual-zone climate control, 18-way power-adjustable sports seats (on the Turbo S), an optional 710W 14-speaker BOSE sound system (again on the Turbo S), and a powered tailgate. Safety tech on board includes eight airbags as standard (with optional side airbags), Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS), and ISOFIX child seat anchorages.

The Porsche Taycan’s only rival is the Audi e-tron GT. The Taycan Cross Turismo doesn’t have any direct competitor.
