Porsche’s ‘basic’ Taycan 4S retails at 110.500 euros
Only a few weeks after launching its full-electric top version of the Taycan, German sports carmaker, Porsche, opens up ordering for the ‘basic model’ 4S, available from January 2020. It has a 79,2 kWh battery promising a range of 407 km (WLTP). Prices start in Belgium at 110.553,50 euros, VAT included.
407 to 463 km range
The Taycan 4S costs in its basic version some 47.000 euros less than the Turbo version (157.844,50 euros) and more than 80.000 euros less than the top model Turbo S (191.724,50 euros in Belgium).
It will be available with the double-deck Performance Plus 93,4 kWh battery of the top models as an option too, promising a range of 463 km on paper. This battery can be charged at the peak of 270 kW, the standard battery at 225 kW if you can find a fast charger capable of this.
The ‘small battery’ gives the Taycan 4S a boost performance capacity of 390 kW (530 pk), beefed-up to 420 kW (571 pk) with the ‘large one’. In both cases, the Taycan 4S accelerates from 0 to 100 km/hour in 4,0 seconds, and top speed is limited to 250 km/hour.
In exterior looks, the 4S doesn’t differ that much with the top models, except for 19-inch Taycan S Aero-rims and red brake calipers and slightly redesigned bumpers.
