    100% charge showing 175 mile range

    Wow! Did you open the doors and leave it open for a few hours then? And you must also have a hell of a long driveway? Seriously what was the temperature and the battery temp then. Did you have the preheat running before unplugging? That does certainly not sound normal to me!

    Yet another video showing Taycan beating EPA rated range on the highway and it's not even in summer weather.

    Thanks Ron, As also pointed out in one reply, it would matter how much is part of a hilly run and then flat run. Unfortunately I have not driven like downhill and then flat for a longer stint. I might actually try that and drive down to the coast and then drive back and forth at sea level for a...

    Yet another video showing Taycan beating EPA rated range on the highway and it's not even in summer weather.

    That is quite impressive and low consumption @ron_b. What temperature range was this done in and were the routes you drove reasonably flat. I have 21 inch wheels which does not help, but I am no way near as low a consumption. I also live in quite a hilly are with elevations of up to 600 meters...

    Future Self Parking Feature Video?

    That was not a good advertising for that feature. So much space on the drivers side. Not impressed.

    DRAG RACE! Taycan Turbo S vs Lamborghini Aventador SV

    Nice race! But there must have been a slow start for the Lamborghini. The spec says 2.8 seconds but it took like 3.4 to 62 mph. Whatever it was it was impressive by the Porsche! I really like driving my Taycan, but that dearly miss that V12 sweet music! 🤣

    Taycan Font

    That is nice to cut out and fix on the wall! Well done. If I may I will also try to use that file and bring to a CNC cutter here! If I can find a good one

    Taycan Crap Nav

    And have up to date information on the status of chargers in Europe at least for a small fee per year. Compared to the Porsche PCM. I just can not understand how they have implemented such a bad thing in the car. And defend the Crap

    Pirelli unveils new Elect tires for electric and plug-in hybrid vehicles

    They are so new that I have not really tried that as yet. They still hve a lot of release agent on them! :). My trip today had a lot of damp roads and chilly so it was not suitable to try a launch start? But I think it will be hard to beat the grip levels from my 21 inch summer wheels, which are...

    Taycan Crap Nav

    My wife has a Tesla Model3. And we have successfully used that car for long trips here in France. It has directed us to all necessary Superchargers and prepared the battery for quick charging when needed. So I can not understand why the Taycan should be so useless. With some of the latest...

    Pirelli unveils new Elect tires for electric and plug-in hybrid vehicles

    Yes they are selling them in Europe at least for 20 inch wheels. I have just got some with my wheels. Seem very comfortable and low noise compared to 21 inch mission E wheels

    100% charge showing 175 mile range

    I do not know about this at all. I do not believe that the gearbox was for this reason. Rather I think Porsche has the gearbox to get the lightning acceleration, but still get good efficiency at high motorway speeds. It would not get down very well if the Germans could not use the cars on their...

    OK to full charge to 100% regularly?

    I am not sure you have seen this video. It is produced by a guy working with battery design. His introduction was “ I did a PhD in Electrochemical Engineering, and currently work on battery design so battery topics are my specialist topic.” It is a longish video with a lot of good information...

    Road Trip Planning Guide (Recommendations from a 1400 mile trip in two travel days)

    One of the best apps for planning a trip with an EV is A Better Route Planner , ABRP. Unfortunately it is not working with Apple CarPlay. There is a Premium version for about 50 Euro per year. This will then show you the status for most HPC. It works very well for me in France, Italy and...

    Road Trip Planning Guide (Recommendations from a 1400 mile trip in two travel days)

    I think that applies all over the world, not just North America. I can see no reason whatsoever to buy that charger in Europe either. All the things you have listed apply, too big, too clumsy, adapters far too expensive etc. For fixed installation it works fine and can power up to 22 kW. I...

    TPMS not resetting!

    I have put the winter wheels on the car. The tyres are 20 inch Pirelli PZero winter Elect tyres. Seems they have been designed specifically for the Taycan from some releases I saw last week. I did the changes as described in the manual and took a short trip. But no luck with the sensors. I did...

    Model 3 has permanent magnets as well. That was one of the new items in that model compared to Model S etc.

    TPMS not resetting!

    Did you ever get this sorted? I have changed to winter tyres but can not get my TPMS to work again? Any advice?

    100% charge showing 175 mile range

    You are correct, it requires electricity of course. But for my model 3 Tesla it does something with the motors even if I do not drive the car. And that preheats the battery. It can draw up to my max 11kW of power but then the temperature of the motor can increase quite a lot! I have seen quite...

    100% charge showing 175 mile range

    Would be interesting to see what the result would be if you plug in and set both charge and preheat at a time before you plan to leave. And similar temperatures. I have seen that it takes a long time to heat the battery a few degrees since it’s mass is some 700 kg. It is also not known how...

    Surround view

    I did not read it the same way. The text says that the surround view is generated from 4 high resolution cameras. And I think you only have 4 cameras on the car, front, rear and the two mirror cameras. You can then generate a lot of views with simulated camera positions on the display! So I...
