Summary

I have only driven the car around tight slower corners on flat ground, but from the launch control runs I can tell this is unmistakably a Porsche. It is packaged to rival the forthcoming Merc EQS and Audi E-Tron GT, and show hot Tesla drivers that high performance is way more than a one shot deal.

The Taycan appears to be an incredible package that is priced to tempt existing or would-be Tesla owners into a legacy manufacturer who is clearly taking EVs very seriously. The Taycan isn’t the start – that was the 919, the 918 and their Formula-E team – but within 18 months I believe it will help to change perceptions of what an EV is and how it can fit into the world of hardcore car enthusiasts, as well as hyper milers.

I want to thank Porsche for offering myself and Fully Charged this special exclusive drive. There is a lot of arrogance in the car media world, and a few noses may have been put out of joint with this video, but Porsche are a progressive company, and I like to think that this channel that Robert Llewellyn has created is exactly that. We are small, but we are powerful. I went away from Stuttgart trying to work out if I could afford a base model single motor RWD Taycan by the time such a car comes to market. All that’s left to say is this:

“I can tell you I don’t have money, but what I do have are a very particular set of skills. Skills I have acquired over a very long career. Skills that make me a nightmare for certain other journalists. If you let me keep the Taycan that’ll be the end of it. I will not look for you, I will not pursue you, but if you don’t, I will look for you, I will find you and I will kill you.”. … Only joking.

Yes, Taycan can use existing Type-2 chargers, such as the ones at Sunway Pyramid, Genting Premium Outlets, ChargEV ones. As a matter of fact, the Taycan has Type-2 charging ports on both sides of the car!

Some owners have reported better range in real life - probably because the two-speed makes the Taycan better at highway speeds.

I've been informed that the Taycan has received 40 booking to date.
Which is a good show of support for the EV product.

On another note too bad that the mini brand only brought in 25 mini electric car which has all taken up. Need to wait for the second batch afterwords I suppose.

Anyways positive support for EV in this second wave of EV in Malaysia.

Reports are coming out stating that although the Taycan is capable of Over-the-Air (OTA) updates, they are sending out letter to the owners requesting them to send the car to the workshop to update their software.

Details of why this is happening is not clear. But one thing is for sure. Future cars especially for EV, needs software to be the core competency for car manufacturers.

The same issue happened to VW with its ID.3 where they had to manually update the cars before shipping them out to the dealership.

OTA capability as in a computer ensures that the product is continuously improved to solve any issues remotely.

(Attached is the Taycan owners manual which states the OTA capability at page 174)

Charging the EV is an integral part of owning an electric car.
Understanding how your car charges and also the different types of charges available is good to understand before owning one or before taking a trip from KL to Penang.
Great to see that Porsche is publishing videos to explain it better to consumers.

Hopefully with the high adoption of Prosche Taycan in Singapore, Malaysia & Thailand maybe they will also open one here in Malaysian highways

These DC charging stations only able to charge up to 150kW.

But the Taycan maxium charging speed is at 270kW
It can fill from 5 to 80% in 22.5 minutes in ideal conditions with a maximum charging capacity (peak) of 270 kW.

There is a lot of misinformation here in Lowyat, FB, Twitter etc about charging an EV on a road trip.

For all the level headed people who wants a factual and real explanation about charging an EV this is it.

The video is a bit long but the explanation is on point.

With that in mind anyone can travel with an EV from JB to KL and even to Penang smoothly.

Porsche’s Electric Taycan Sales on Course to Eclipse Iconic 911
By Christoph Rauwald
16 April 2021, 7:35 pm MYT
https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/202...ipse-iconic-911


Porsche buyers are flocking in droves to the brand’s Taycan sedan, with sales of the all-electric model almost matching those of the iconic 911 sports car.

Porsche delivered 9,072 Taycans during the first quarter, trailing the 911 by 61 units, the brand owned by Volkswagen AG said Friday in a statement. The manufacturer unveiled its first purely battery-powered model that’s competing for customers with Tesla Inc.’s Model S in 2019.

“Established models have supported this excellent result along with the latest additions to our product range, above all the new model variants of the all-electric Taycan,” Porsche sales chief Detlev von Platen said of the brand’s 36% first-quarter surge. “We can look back on a very positive start to the year.”

The Taycan, which Porsche recently flanked with a more spacious version, is a litmus test for the carmaker’s costly shift to electric vehicles. Boosting EV sales with Porsche will be key to maintaining healthy margins as the division is VW group’s biggest profit contributor by far.

Porsche’s total global deliveries rose to 71,986 vehicles in the first quarter, driven mainly by demand in China, its largest market. The compact Macan SUV was the brand’s best-selling model, ahead of the larger Cayenne. Porsche will launch a battery-powered version of the Macan next year that’s underpinned by a new platform for upscale electric cars co-developed with sister brand Audi.

Porsche remains optimistic about business prospects this year even as a global shortage of semiconductor parts disrupts production plans across the industry. Order books “continue to develop very well,” Von Platen said.

The low carbon mobility blueprint proposal by Ministry of Environment and Water is proposing a full tax exemption form BEV.
This is certainly good news for Taycan fans!

Curious, what is this cost relative to? Estimated TNB consumption? Or is this at one of the Charging Stations, and that is the amount to pay after charging?

This is the Porsche Mobile Charger Connect which is installed at the owner's house. This mobile charger can be used at the specified type of electrical outlet. Attached File  Porsche_Mobile_Charger_Connect___Operating_Manual_.pdf ( 5.87mb ) Number of downloads: 1


The owner I think has set the price at around 57.3 sen/kWh

if you divide RM49.63 with 86.6 you would get 57.3 sen/kWh

TNB tariff for domestic consumer starts at 21.8 sen/kWh to 57.1 sen/kWh

The actual TNB bill would depend on the owner's monthly home electricity consumption.

VW Group indicated that the 4 main value drivers are
1. BEV platform
2. Software
3. Battery/Energy/Charging
4. Mobility Platform

I see this as the 4 main core competency for the automotive sector as they move towards EV.

Case in point for software, Porsche Taycan owners have noted several improvements after the latest software update to name a few

1. Energy consumption improved from 27kw/100km to 23kw/100km
2. Better 360 camera images
3. Apple car play more stable
4. Better electronic suspension feel
5. Smoother throttle response

This shows the EV platform actually can be easily improved even after the car has been delivered to the customer.
