Porsche Taycan Overview & Charging Options

The Taycan is one of Porsche’s most popular electric sellers, and it’s no surprise as to why! Released in 2020, the Taycan has taken the EV world by storm. Admittedly, it may not be an affordable vehicle to some – but arguably it lives up to the price tag (starting £83,580). Boasting a WLTP range of 254 miles & a staggering 0-62mph speed of 4 seconds – the Taycan is certainly a spectacular EV.

When it comes to charging the Taycan – it features a Type 2 and CCS charging port. Offering a maximum charge rate of 7.4kW using a one-phase fast charging cable – and a maximum charge rate of 11kW using a three-phase cable. Both cables to be used with a standard charging unit or public charge point – the cables can be purchased from 4EV. The rapid charge option of CCS allows for a maximum charge rate of 225kW, and CCS chargers can be accessed at select public charge points. 22kW on-board chargers are optional for the Taycan - which would allow for the maximum of 22kW charging, using a three-phase cable.

If you don’t have access to a standard charging unit at home/work – then you could always opt for the slow charging method – which utilises an EVSE cable (3-pin domestic plug). This cable can be used with your typical household plug and allows the Taycan to be charged at a slower rate from the comfort of your own home. Again, this cable can be purchased from 4EV.
