That's the classic discussion about hp vs torque.
The Turbo S can maintain max torque for a longer period of time while at same hp as the Turbo cuz of the bigger inverter.
Something like that?
PS LC is activated for 2.5 sec per launch.
I think you mix up current and magnetism.
Induction charging is transfering current by magnetism, there's no current going through the air, it's the magnetism, that's the whole idea behind induction charging.
From that magnetism the car makes current again to charge the battery.
Nice to see the kind of people who buy Taycans!
I, myself, never owned a Porsche before so I didn't have any idea what a Porsche owner would look like, lol!
Just kidding, it's nice to see these are "normal" people and share their passion in cars, same for me.
I'm home. :CWL:
Engine/drive-unit defenately not the same.
Thanks for sharing this update though!
PS That factory which burned down was also involved in the placement of the 350kW chargers (heard from a ABB representative).
Ah! Now I see what you mean.
Indeed, my bad.
It has nothing to do with the energy available but consumption.
Still, it shows the Model S uses a lot more energy than EPA states.
The difference with the Taycan is not that much.
I was talking about the initial EPA rating of the Model S.
They have three different ways to get numbers.
1. From manufacturer.
2. Extended test cycle (incl. high speed and ambient temperature)
3. Short test cycle (*0,7 factor for high speed/temp).
Tesla Model S was #1.
Maybe I'm mistaken (correct me if I'm wrong) but there are a few things to consider.
The difference is only 10 mls.
The Tesla uses 95 kWh where Taycan uses only 83kWh from it's battery, right?
That makes the Taycan performs even better, right?
But why and how?
Cuz of the...
