It’s official: the Car Guide chose the 2021 Porsche Taycan as the best Electric Luxury Vehicle! Indeed, they awarded it with the 2021 Best Buy title, which is very justified. Since its very beginnings, the Porsche Taycan has never ceased to offer performance that simply reshapes the concept of what any electric vehicle should be. This Porsche sedan has single-handedly shown that through electricity, sportiness and environmental responsibility can coexist. However, the Taycan, especially for 2021, is much more than just a Porsche electric sports sedan. Porsche Québec, your Porsche dealer of choice in the city of the same name, invites you to discover the 2021 Porsche Taycan in depth below!
Porsche lines that are sure to hit the mark everywhere in Quebec.
At first glance and regardless of the version, the design of the 2021 Taycan screams Porsche. Headlights housed in the extension of the front fenders like the 911, low sloping roof and futuristic rear light strip: the sporty, 100% electric car from Zuffenhausen has a mighty presence on the road with its tremendously charismatic lines.
With its aerodynamic profile that seems to have been carved by the wind, the 2021 Porsche Taycan sports a surprisingly flowing yet very athletic exterior styling. And with available exterior colors as exclusive as the incredible Carmine Red and Chalk as well as a stunning selection of beautiful wheels, you'll be able to further enhance the gorgeous lines of your 2021 Taycan from Trois-Rivières to Quebec City!
However, a Porsche is only worthy of its name if it performs according to the standards required by Zuffenhausen, which are very high. But on this point, no need to worry! In fact, whatever model you are considering among the three available, the Taycan is truly a world-class athlete.
The first version, the 2021 Porsche Taycan 4S, will offer you two overboost power levels through its motors: either up to 522 horsepower for 472 lb-ft of torque (Performance battery with activated Launch Control) or up to 562 horsepower for 479 lb-ft (Performance Plus battery with activated Launch Control). As for the 2021 Porsche Taycan Turbo, it delivers an exceptional overboost power with Launch Control of up to 670 hp for 626 lb-ft of torque.
However, if you want even more performance, Porsche Canada had you in mind with the 2021 Porsche Taycan Turbo S and its 750 horsepower for 774 lb-ft (again with Launch Control engaged). In this configuration, the performance is simply incredible. Acceleration from a standstill to 100 km/h in just 2.8 seconds, and to 200 km/h in 9.6 seconds: at its maximum power and torque, the Turbo S delivers true supercar figures. The best thing about it? You'll be able to take advantage of all these capabilities even in winter in Quebec City, since all three versions feature an ultra-effective all-wheel drive system that comes as standard!
The Taycan also performs well in terms of driving range. If this is the number 1 priority for you, according to the EPA, you will get the most kilometres out of the Taycan 4S equipped with the Performance Plus battery. While the Car Guide does not have such data for all 2021 variants of the Taycan, the range of the aforementioned version for the 2020 model-year is approximately 326 km. But the best compromise will undoubtedly be the Taycan Turbo, the range of which is given at 323 km according to the EPA, with much better performances. The 2020 Porsche Taycan Turbo S can travel up to 308 km on a single charge. However, Porsche has commissioned its own study on the range of its latest model from the firm AMCI, and the range exceeded 450 km in several tests.
Interior: quite simply, the future of dynamic driving!
Finally, the cabin. On this last chapter as well, the 2021 Taycan is a true Porsche. Sleek and horizontal dashboard, ascending center console, bucket seats with perfect support and a steering wheel with optimal grip: this interior is ergonomically worthy of the one from a real race car! You'll really feel like you're becoming one with your Porsche electric sedan each time you drive from Trois-Rivières to Quebec City!
However, the 2021 Taycan doesn't forget to be ultra-luxurious. Sport seats with 18-way electric adjustment, panoramic roof, air ionization system, head-up display, infotainment screen for the front passenger and Burmester sound system: you and the other occupants will enjoy unmatched comfort during your rides around Ste-Foy!
Now you understand why the 2021 Taycan has been elected as the 2021 Best Buy by the Car Guide! Refined, very powerful but environmentally responsible, and highly technological: the all-electric sedan from Zuffenhausen is a flawless car.
