2025 Porsche Taycan Proves Impressive Increase in Range Through Real-World Testing Results

Porsche Estimates Used for Evaluation, Not EPA Data

Porsche recently revealed that the updated 2025 Taycan successfully completed a real-life endurance test in America, covering an impressive distance of 587 km (365 miles). This is a significant improvement of over 100 miles compared to the previous model’s EPA-certified maximum range of 246 miles.

Initially, it’s important to note that the reported maximum number is an approximation provided by the Stuttgart car company. Therefore, there is a possibility that this figure may alter once the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) conducts their own tests on the four-door electric car (EV). This statistic was released after members of the press test drove four EVs on Interstate Highway 405 and 5 over a period of three days.

Porsche has announced that the newly updated Taycan will come with notable enhancements, a promising development given its recent accomplishments.

The test was conducted at the Electrify America Charger in LA, with the vehicles equipped with the larger Performance Battery Plus. During the trial, the drivers maintained a top speed of 75 mph and the range was evaluated under “everyday conditions.”

The newly released Porsche Taycan will not only have an impressive range, but it will also feature “shorter and more robust charging processes.” This electric vehicle boasts a maximum charging rate of 300 kW, which is approximately 30 kW higher than its predecessor. This means that the Taycan can go from 10% to 80% in less than 20 minutes, a slight upgrade from the average 22.5 minutes seen in the previous model.

The utilization of an 800-volt electric vehicle (EV) framework from its parent company Volkswagen has made this achievement possible, as evidenced by the Audi e-tron GT. This advanced technology, in contrast to a traditional 400-volt EV system, generally allows for significantly quicker charging times.

“We are extremely pleased with the outcome. The recent range test conducted in Southern California showcased the remarkable efficiency of the updated Taycan. Our main priority remains our ‘fast travel’ approach to electric mobility, combining short charging stops with exceptional real-world ranges made possible by our highly efficient drives,” stated Kevin Giek, the vice president of the model line.

According to reports, there are plans for performance improvements in the works. Giek has previously stated that the upcoming EV will surpass its predecessor in terms of speed, height, and distance with the promise of being “faster, higher, further.”

Porsche is set to unveil the 2025 Taycan in just a matter of weeks. Along with the rest of the line-up, a new high-end version that has already eclipsed the Tesla Model S Plaid’s lap record at the Nurburgring, even before going into production, is anticipated to make its debut.
