2021 Porsche Taycan Turbo Versions Get Higher EPA Range Ratings

The 2021 model year versions of the top-of-the-line Porsche Taycan Turbo and Turbo S received noticeably better EPA range and efficiency ratings.

However, the gain of roughly 10 miles or 5% is still too small to offset the difference to real-world results, which are usually significantly higher than EPA.

The new EPA Combined range rating for the Taycan Turbo is 212 miles (341 km), which is 11 miles, or 5.5% higher than before.

The EPA Highway range, which is actually more important in our opinion, is at 218.4 miles (351.4 km) – up from just over 206 miles.

The overall energy consumption of the 2021 MY car is also considered better, but it’s difficult to say whether something really changed or it’s just a small change in configuration (like wheels/equipment).
