What kind of a vehicle is the Porsche Taycan? Is it purely an electric vehicle or a hybrid? Is there a variant that runs on conventional gasoline?

Learn all there is to know about this beloved Porsche model and what lies under the hood when you visit Porsche Jacksonville.

Porsche Taycan: What You Need to Know

The Porsche Taycan is available solely as an electric vehicle. There is no hybrid model or version that runs fully on gasoline. Depending on the trim, this car can travel between 199 and 227 miles on a full charge. This is made possible thanks to its 71-kWh battery that comes standard, though you can upgrade to a more robust 83.7-kWh battery to achieve the upper end of that travel range. 

Available trims include the 4S, Turbo, and Turbo S, which are equipped with all-wheel-drive. The base 4S produces 522 hp, while the premium Turbo S produces an impressive 750 hp and is capable of zipping from zero to 60 mph in just 2.4 seconds. 

Charging Time 

With every electric vehicle, charging time is a huge factor in appealing to potential buyers. If you have an upgraded 83.7-kWh battery and have access to an 800-volt DC fast charger, you can charge your Porsche Taycan from 5 percent to 80 percent battery capacity in about 23 minutes.

With the more conventional 400-volt DC fast charger, the battery can be replenished from 5 percent to 80 percent in about 93 minutes. There’s also an optional onboard 150-kW charger that further reduces charging time.
