More range for the 2023 Porsche Taycan

This results in the batteries reaching their maximum charging speed of 270-kW more quickly and in the process, they will charge more efficiently. This update will be available for current Taycan owners.
Moreover, Porsche says the 2023 Taycan will gain 50 km in overall range on the European WLTP protocol. For Canadian owners, that should translate into roughly 30 extra kilometres of range.
