Hybrid and Electric Vehicle Mechanic Students Will Love the Luxurious Porsche Taycan 4S
Once upon a time, Toyota’s Prius was the only electric vehicle on the market. Today, manufacturers like Tesla, and now Porsche, are upping the standards – not only in terms of how EVs can perform but how they look as well. The 2021 Porsche Taycan feels like a sports car with its impressive acceleration and performance specs, but without guzzling any gas. With the Taycan, Porsche is showing the automotive world what an electric vehicle is capable of. If you’re training to become a hybrid and electric vehicle mechanic, Porsche’s Taycan should be on your radar. Here’s all you need to know about its performance, battery pack, electric motor, and special features.
A Look at the 2021 Taycan’s Performance Specs for Those with Hybrid and Electrical Mechanic Training
The 2021 Porsche Taycan 4S comes with two different battery pack options. The standard option is equipped with a 79.2-kWh lithium-ion battery pack, which generates up to– wait for it– 522 horsepower, with 472 lb-ft of torque. If you have hybrid and electric mechanic training, you know that is some seriously powerful performance. With the 83.7-kWh pack, the 4S’ power is even greater, delivering 565 horsepower.
While its horsepower is formidable, the 2021 Porsche Taycan’s acceleration reminds you that, well, it’s still a Porsche. Even though this vehicle is battery powered, the speeds it reaches are not for the faint of heart. The Taycan 4S can get from 0-97 km/h in 3.4 seconds, making it one of the sportiest (electric) sedans on the market. Even at extreme speeds, the Taycan handles beautifully due to its low centre of gravity and responsive steering.
The Taycan’s Electric Motors Deliver Impressive Charge
The Taycan’s impressive capabilities are possible thanks to its dual electric motors, which hybrid and electric vehicle mechanic students may know are becoming a popular option for adding power to EVs. In the Taycan, one motor is responsible for delivering power to the front wheels, while the other powers the rear wheels.
While many electric vehicles on the market today are equipped with 400-volt systems, the Taycan is equipped with an 800-volt arrangement. This enables the vehicle to have more powerful motors, which are also smaller and allow for lighter, more efficient packaging. On a single charge, the Taycan has a range of 320 km, and with its efficient motors, the Taycan 4S gets 3L/100km for its combined fuel economy.
This EV’s Special Features Are Not to be Missed
The Taycan 4S is equipped with a number of luxury features which make its speedy optics all the more enjoyable. The 4S comes with adaptive air suspension with Smartlift, a keyless entry and start, ambient interior lighting, heated side mirrors, water-sensing wipers, dual-zone automatic climate control, heated side mirrors, 8-way power-adjustable (and heated) front seats, and more.
As for infotainment and connectivity, the Taycan has a driver information display as well as a central infotainment display, It’s equipped with four different USB-C ports, and has Bluetooth, navigation, and Apple CarPlay integration capabilities, as well as wireless charging.
