Porsche today introduced a fourth variant of the Taycan all-electric sedan.
As anticipated, this new version is an entry-level rear-wheel drive model. It will debut on the U.S. market this spring and be available starting at $81,250 USD. The model shares its rear engine with the 4S all-wheel drive version. However, it's 215 lb lighter.
Addendum: Porsche Canada has confirmed to us that, unfortunately for fans of performance cars with RWD, this version will not be offered in Canada.
As for the battery, its capacity is 79.2 kWh. The permanent magnet synchronous electric motor that powers the rear axle produces 402 hp and 254 lb-ft of torque. A 93.4-kWh battery is also available, bringing output to 469 hp and torque to 263 lb-ft of torque. Porsche reports a 0-96 km/h time of 5.1 seconds and a top speed of 230 km/h.
