Porsche thundered into the electric car market with its Taycan towards the end of 2019. In Norway, more than 3,000 customers reserved the car – and now the deliveries are well underway.
Thanks to exemption from taxes and VAT, and that Taycan can also be described as relatively practical, it will ensure a huge sales growth for Porsche here at home.
But already from the 2021 model, there will be a fairly extensive sandwich list with upgrades.
It not only gets faster, which is sensational enough in itself – but also gets more equipment. Among other things, one thing we know many have wanted.

But let’s just as well speed up first. Porsche customers are a little above average about acceleration and tenths of a second. And here they get some new and lower numbers to enjoy.
With the 2021 version of the Taycan Turbo S, 0-200 km / h is processed in just 9.6 seconds – 0.2 seconds faster than the current model. The quarter mile, which is an important distance in the USA, is delivered in 10.7 seconds. 0.1 second better than before.
Not so important, you might think? No, it must be so. But it is now the case that these figures say something about what capacity the car offers.
Test by Taycan: – I look in the mirror and think: What every day !?

Taycan will be a common sight on Norwegian roads, when all customers get their cars.
Finally it gets …
More useful in everyday life, however, is that the 2021 model gets a head up display. We know this should come at a later date, but that it would happen so quickly is good news.
Porsche goes for a color display that is three-part, with one main field, and two smaller fields.
In a car that offers the performance Taycan does, it is smart to have equipment that helps you keep your eyes on the road as much as possible.

Smart air suspension
With a stronger on-board charger, charging is also twice as fast. The new one is 22 kW, while the current one is 11 kW. This halves the charging time when using a standard electrical outlet.
If you use Porsche’s Ionity fast chargers, you will be able to charge without using a card or app. Charging starts automatically when the cable is connected to the car, and charges the car owner’s account.
The air suspension offers what is called a “Smartlift”, which means that the car can automatically rise in given situations, such as speed bumps and entry and exit of parking garages. This system will also adapt to driving on the motorway.

Those who have already received their car can be happy that new services will be available wirelessly. These can be both bought and rented.
Porsche will also offer several new services that can be downloaded wirelessly, which car owners can either buy or subscribe to over shorter periods. It can be Porsche Intelligent Range Manager (PRIM), Power Steering Plus (PSP), active file holder or Porsche InnoDrive.
In the well-known Porsche style, it is also emphasized that Taycan’s launch control, which ensures the absolute fastest acceleration, can be used without worrying about the car being damaged by it.
Maybe just missing, do you think? Well, here it is common for the manufacturer to warn against doing this exercise too often, because there is such a large load on the engine, gearbox and the car in general.
Porsche, on the other hand, promises that you can do as much as you want in Taycan, without compromising the car’s reliability.
Finally, we include seven new color choices – and a new Carbon Sport design package.
