Porsche Unveils 2025 Taycan Lineup

In 2019 — after 88 years of producing petrol-powered models — Porsche unveiled its first-ever all-electric car with the Taycan. Putting a sleek spin on the marque’s traditional design language, the Taycan may have seen Porsche’s normal gas engine setup jettisoned in favor of a battery and electric motors, though it retains the Stuttgart firm’s core DNA, along with its signature spirited performance capabilities. And for the latest iteration of the EV the company is doubling down on these traits for the debut of the 2025 model year Porsche Taycan. 

Benefitting from faster charging, increased range, more power, and quicker acceleration, the 2025 Porsche Taycan is thus-far being offered across eight different trim levels — the base model Taycan; the Taycan S; the Taycan Turbo; the Taycan Turbo S, the  Taycan 4 Cross Turismo, the  Taycan 4S Cross Turismo, the Taycan Turbo Cross Turismo, and the top-of-the-line Taycan Turbo S Cross Turismo. Alongside an updated appearance that includes new front- and rear-end styling with new LED HD-Matrix Design headlights and taillights, the 2025 model year Taycan also benefits from a slew of high-end features that now all come as standard such as Lane Change Assist, a heated steering wheel, Ambient lighting, electrically-folding exterior mirrors with mirror surround lighting, Porsche’s Intelligent Range Manager, a new cooling system, wireless onboard smartphone charging, and adaptive air suspension — the latter of which can be up-specced to the new Porsche Active Ride suspension on all-wheel drive Taycan variants. The interior of the 2025 model year EV has also been revised and now features an updated control and display concept. 

Every trim level of the 2025 Taycan is faster than its 2024 predecessor, with even the base model now clocking 0-60mph times of just 4.5 seconds — a 0.6-second improvement over the 2024 car. The 2025 Taycan Turbo S is now able to deliver a 2.3-second 0-60mph time — making it the fastest-accelerating production model Porsche has offered to date. Noticably more potent than the 2024 model, the range-topping 2025 Taycan sports a multi-motor setup that puts down 700kW (938hp) and 808ft-lbs of torque. In addition to a new rear-axle motor with up to 80kW (107hp) more power that’s used on all models, the latest Taycan also benefits from a new push-to-pass function. Part of the Sport Chrono package, this new feature can be called upon at the touch of a button for up to 10 seconds at a time and is able to temporarily bolster power by a very noticeable 70kw (94hp). The powertrain draws from a battery pack that can be charged at 800-volt DC charging stations at up to 320 kW under ideal conditions — a 50-kW boost over the outgoing model year Taycan. Lighter than last year’s battery while also more potent, the battery pack on the 2025 iteration of the EV can also gain a 10% to 80% charge in as little as 18 minutes — quicker than last year’s model despite boasting a larger capacity. The entire powertrain also benefits from the use of a modified pulse inverter paired with optimized software, a revised thermal management system, a next-generation heat pump, and a modified recuperation and all-wheel-drive strategy.

The 2025 Porsche Taycan range is available to order now, with deliveries scheduled to begin this summer. Pricing for the 2025 lineup starts at $99,400 for the base model 2025 Taycan and goes up to $211,700 for the range-topping 2025 Taycan Turbo S Cross Turismo.
