These two luxury EVs are very closely matched. The Tesla Model S offers more range and features for less money, while the Porsche Taycan counters with more refinement and driver engagement. From Edmunds’ standpoint, the Taycan squeaks out a slight win here.
Software tech : advantage Tesla
Mechanical tech : advantage Porsche
Combined : tie
Tesla wins on charging infrastructure. Not to kick the hornets nest, but if the charging reliability on EA is solved and they continue to expand, Porsche arguably wins charging with the 800V pack.the article ignores the differences in charging abilities.
tesla is the clear winner on that front
Very much so!Edit: obviously a US centric view, although I suspect Tesla has a leg up in almost all parts of the world right now.
hey, at least I called out my own bias?Very much so!
In EU the public charging network is already pretty strong and in China the SCN is irrelevant. My old MS90D can now only charge with an adapter even on the SCN. We pay usually between 1 RMB and 1.6 RMB per kWh (15 to 25 cent) on public fast chargers...
Not IONITY in Germany but a south western grid company. There was even a Taycan waiting for a free spot. EA users are lucky, they have always free chargers!
