Some clarity on EPA from edmunds, really enjoyed their efficiency comparison. A Taycan 4S has efficiency 12% lower than a Model Y which is much lighter with a smaller battery.
Taycan tires: front: P225/55R19, rear: P275/45R19
Tesla tires: front: P255/35R21, rear: P275/35R21

The 2020 Porsche Taycan 4S, an all-new electric luxury sport sedan, was way off from the EPA estimated 203 miles of range in Edmunds’ real-world driving test. Edmunds observed 323 miles and saw a better energy consumption of 32.3 kilowatt-hours of electricity used every 100 miles of driving, versus the EPA’s 49 kWh/100 miles.

In contrast, the 2020 Tesla Model Y Performance with 21-inch wheels — the brand’s newest small SUV — did exceptionally well in the EPA’s test, where it earned an estimated 291 miles and a power consumption rating of 28 kWh/100 miles, using the maximum range mode. While Edmunds saw comparable efficiency in its real-world test, at 28.4 kWh/100 miles, the overall range result of 253 miles was slightly lower than the EPA estimate.
