The facelifted 2025 Taycan will debut in just a few days, and as Porsche proved on a recent real-world test in Southern California, the Taycan’s range will be significantly improved.
Porsche set its own speed limit of 75mph for the test route, which saw multiple Taycans drive from Los Angeles back to San Diego on the 405/5 freeways under normal driving conditions. Out of the group of prototypes, which were driven by a handful of auto journalists from different countries, all were able to achieve ranges of more than 300 miles, the longest being a rear-wheel-drive Taycan sedan on 19-inch wheels that eked out 365 miles of highway range — more than 100 miles greater than the current equivalent’s EPA range.
