The 2020 Porsche Taycan Turbo has the lowest MPGe rating of all current 2019 and 2020 model year electric cars in the United States according to the EPA. For gasoline supercars, efficiency doesn't really matter, and fuel economy is often pitiful. However, with today's current battery technology, electric car efficiency is extremely important regardless if it's an economy car or a supercar.
Porsche enthusiasts may not be worried about the energy bills or even the 201 mile range of their brand new electric car, but there are metrics about inefficiency that are hard to ignore for any enthusiast. This video will also compare the Porsche Taycan's battery strategy to the Tesla Model S. Differences in battery strategy also lead to differences in brake pedal, accelerator pedal, and regenerative braking strategies between the two cars, which will be discussed in the video.

    If your immediate thought is "no one buying a supercar cares about efficiency" take a moment to watch the video. I agree with you. For gasoline cars it doesn't matter. For electrics, it does. The video explains why. Merry Christmas, happy new year, and happy holidays everyone!

    There many points that aren’t included in this video. 1.- The overheat in the batteries of the Tesla that produces a terrible driving experience, if you make a launch control only 3 times, the car tells you that you have to let it rest meanwhile in Porsche you can do it a lot of times and the batteries will never overheat. 2. One of the main reasons of Porsche’s weight is because of its 2 speed transmission rather than the 1 speed Tesla’s transmission, you can watch the Taycan vs Model S in carwow and see how even Tesla has more power and less weight Porsche leave it behind. Your analysis must include all parameters not only those you want or believe, for example Porsche’s PASM or the PCCB plays an important role too. You need to see that Porsche Taycan it’s for another market segment, luxurier and sportier.

    Mar I see Car and Driver made an article about how the Tesla was good for 222miles and the Porsche 209. But the epa says 348 vs 201. Car and driver also didn’t run the batteries down to zero. I think the difference isn’t quite as stark as the epa but also not quite as close as cad and driver. Sometimes in phones laptops and cars they’ll show you slightly different percentages than there actually is maybe it’s the software tinkering with the numbers. Would have been nice to see them run it into the ground and then compare how far each car got. The Porsche is significantly heavier with a smaller battery so I think both numbers are wrong epa and the magazines I think it’s somewhere between the two in terms of the difference in mileage.

    Engineering Explained the taycan to reach model s ranges would need to be even heavier than 6321lbs since with more weight you need more juice to move the vehicle. So it’d be like 6500lbs I’m pretty sure that’s close to how much an F250 weighs. An industrial heavy duty truck. This really shows Tesla’s technological superiority when a powerhouse like VW fails miserably to come close, even while costing near double.

    13:50 Uhh NO! Driver does not understand their vehicle really well, otherwise we wouldn't be watching this video. You may understand the vehicle... or do you???... but clearly, the driver does not understand their vehicle really well. This is the strategy that most reasonable engineers take, leave room for driver error and you leave reliability in place. Porsche clearly went for reliability, and longevity as a manufacturer, who cares about the reputation of their vehicles and their brand... where as Elon Musk and all his companies could care less about longevity about anything, specifically Tesla. Tesla are unreliable for a reason, this is why. Porsche is reliable for a reason, this why. Don't believe me, pickup a consumer reports annual auto issue that comes out in February (the April Edition). Tesla is near the bottom, Porsche is number one for "How the brands stack up" on "strong performing and problem-free vehicles" (Overall score is a composite of: road-test scores, predicted reliability, owner satisfaction, key safety features and crash test results).

  • Copper Key Racing

    2:48 You took the car and driver article out of context [and only took what you liked, and left out what you didn't]. You get a thumbs down. Specifically: "Porsche is not happy with the EPA's result, so it hired its own team to get a better "real-world" range number." which is right under the Title... Then, immediately after the sentence you quoted it states, "The AMCI test, then, appears to be Porsche taking issue with the EPA's range testing cycle itself." Translation: Porsche does not agree with the testing methodology that the EPA is using. In other words, had Porsche convinced the EPA to change the way they do the testing, things would be entirely different. This is my EXACT issue with Electric vehicles. They are tested and propped up, in such a way that it's mostly propaganda... clearly for political reasons. Additionally: If you don't like how much a high end luxury/performance car costs you, go buy an economy car. Stop comparing what shouldn't be compared: how efficient your $100K+ car costs you to go down the road. It's like saying I'm a billionaire and I can't afford to buy a bottle of water, so I'll wait, drink water from the tap when I get some place, and be more efficient.

    I take away two points from this video: 1) The Porsche weighs about as much as a Ford F-150 without the battery. It seems they did nothing to make the base vehicle light. 2) The Porsche drive train eats energy for no real gains over the Tesla.

    Basically because Porsche were conservative with their claimed real life range as many road tests have now proven. Whilst Tesla have exaggerated their claimed range as many road tests have now proven. So with regard to your efficiency calculations as a well known saying goes, sh*t in = sh*t out.

    I have a problem with your choice of models to compare. At the top of your workings, you are comparing the Turbo S to the Long Range. Which makes for a flawed comparison as the Turbo S is the highest performing model, more in line with the model S performance. So the 4s Battery Plus or base Turbo would make more sense against the Model S LR. Alternatively if you wanted to stick to this worst case, the model s performance would have been a more appropriate comparison. Something else that you did, was compare the upper bounds of of range with the lower bounds of the other at 4:20. You inconsistently use the names for the models you are getting the figures for, I’m not sure if this intentional to compare the different taycan models figures but it seems as if you did keep the same models specs throughout, its just rather lazy considering that each model will have different specifications.

    @engineeringexplained When you were talking about regenerative braking with the tesla. You were saying if the car was 100% charged the car can't charge up when braking cause the battery is already full. This can't ever be true 'cause you need to accelerate first before you can brake. So it will have used power before it can recharge by braking. Btw. Also wondering will the regenerative braking also reduce the battery life? Because you are always charging and discharging will driving. Will citydriving hurt the lifetime of the battery more then long time highway users?

    U have got to remember tho that the taycan deliberately has weaker regeneration, has powerful motors which has the same consequences as in a petrol car - a v8 going 30mph will use more fuel than a straight 4 in a Honda jazz going at 30 if they r the same weight, also the taycan is made to feel just like a petrol car and it does, when u r in it it is just like being in a petrol car except it has no engine noise, meaning the Porsche will beat other cars round corners because of the heavy air suspension which is flat round corners and super smooth in the corners - I do think u r exaggerating things here the taycan is always going to be less efficient than other cars because it’s a sports car not a family car like the Tesla. It’s not super inefficient

    It’s a better business model for Porsche to build a car that can be improved on so they sell you another, better car.

Porsche probably have the capacity to build it better but they need to keep selling you the new, improved models every couple of years so make more money

    The first time watching this video and I am disappointed at how biased it is. How about having an objective approach to reviewing the numbers? It seems like the conclusion was put before analyzing the numbers. I don't refute the numbers but the justifications are crazy for trying to make Tesla seem like a better product based on efficiency alone instead of other factors that DO affect people buying between two different brands. How about talking about the big sacrifices in reliability Tesla makes to get these numbers? I can respect Porsche for being careful and rather underpromising and overdelivering instead of taking advantage of the brand name and leaving their customers without their car or a partially working car for weeks on end, ESPECIALLY out of warranty.

    Remember the old dirty Volkswagen 1.9TDi? Say, the 110hp 1.9TDi Passat with a manual transmission? 50-60 mpg on the highway no problem. Volkswagen sold the Lupo 3L (probably not in the US, but idk) for years, that thing is easy to get 65-75 mpg out of. These were of course diesels without DPF and the advanced emissions of newer diesels, but the emissions crap has really hurt the efficiency of diesels. The 1.9 TDi 110 Passat is a sizeable family sedan or stationwagon with enough low-end grunt to keep up with traffic and for cruising at well above the speed limit for days while getting excellent mileage.

    Trond Erik Brekke4 måneder siden

    There's only one major issue. The EPA rating of the Taycan is incredibly flawed. You almost have to track the car to get that bad range. It has pretty much the same range as the pre-Raven Model S. So either the EPA test has been conducted poorly or there's some form of corruption going on. You have to drive seriously fast to get that poor range. In normal use, you should expect about 300 miles of range. Which is significantly better than the EPA-rating.

    @Engineering Explained Well, Porsche is known for being conservative with their numbers, but dang, that's very conservative. I own a Model S, and I've done enough testing in the Taycan to say it's not far from the same consumption. The small edge in the Model S is due to narrower tires. If you put on narrower tires on the Taycan it's also very efficient, but even with the 305 tires it's very impressive. So I just can't understand the EPA rating. Most times when you start the car, with a full battery, it will show about 280 miles of range.

    Very interesting! Still I think people who want a electric car that’s performing very well as a sports car will be better of with the taycan. Once they care about traveling long distances they should take the Tesla. There is a car for every purpose. Porsche is a sportscar it drives and accelerate nearly like an combustion’s engine and will never take power from the driver because of some battery issues. For myself that would be unacceptable! That’s why I did not take a electric car. Now with the taycan my choices might change.

    So you're basing this entire point based on the EPA ratings? Which has been proven to be very inaccurate and vastly underestimates the range of the Taycan.

    what about the electric motor. I guess the max speed of the taycan is higher so the machine has to be more powerful and has a smaller transmission ratio --> low rpm in the driving cycle and in daily driving = low efficiency

    The Taycan has Cd=0.22 drag coefficient and 0.513sqm drag area and Tesla model S has Cd=0.24 and 0.576sqm of drag area. So Taycan has better aerodynamics. But the Taycan Turbo S has 0.583sqm so very close to MS. So maybe porsche has stickier tires (probably not) or less efficient motor or transmission losses With tesla drivetrain efficiency Taycan would’d achieved a range of 330mi

    thy real world range of the taycan is equal to tesla as it turns out.
