2021 Porsche Taycan Turbo Versions Get Higher EPA Range Ratings

The values for the 2021 model year are several percent better for both the Turbo and Turbo S.

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.

2021 Porsche Taycan Turbo (93 kWh)

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).
