What range did it show on your first full charge?
Don't know. The car was fully charged when I left the dealership, but I don't remember. Now at home I immediately set a profile that charges to 85% and it worked as it should. As I'll charge to that unless going on a longer trip.

As it happens I'm going on a longer trip tomorrow so will charge to 100% tonight, I can check then.

Car was showing 383km range after charging to 100%. However I'm not sure how much that actually means, as I think it takes into account recent driving behaviour. Which tbh has been the opposite of hypermiling :) :)

The delivery of my Taycan 4S was yesterday. Drove a total of 4 hours on the first day and I'm very happy with the car so far. It's incredible. Pouring rain today so taking a break now but can't wait to go driving again. Will have my first longer trip actually already in a few days!

I will do a proper review in a few weeks once I've had the time to get to know the car. But from what I've seen so far, I'm impressed. Compared to my Audi A7 I feel like I'm driving a formula car. And the flexibility is truly something. In normal mode the car can be driven as smoothly and comfortably as I've ever driven anything. But in sport and sport plus it transforms into a true sports car.

Lots of things I could already say, but they'll have to wait for the long review, where I will go through everything. But I can already say that it is an epic car.

There is one strange thing I noticed right away and want to ask other owners. The lights in the car tend to stay on even after I lock the car in the garage... what is that about? To me it seemed like a bug. I was able to get them to go off by unlocking -> switching to parking lights -> switching back to automatic lights -> locking again. Then the lights went immediately off. As the lights were on automatic originally, and switching back and forth then fixed it, I could only assume this must be a bug of some sort. Or am I missing something? This has already happened twice in my garage and basically seems to be normal operation.

And yes of course, before you guys ask, I do have some pictures. Here they are. Will post more with the proper review.

As I expected the estimated range can be very much off. I drove a 150km trip before taking a break and the range showed 293km left of the original 383km. So in reality I drove 150km but the range dropped 90km.

That was chilled out driving with the family, pretty efficient probably. Just says a lot of how much it matters how you drive.

Also interesting info as I charged the car to 97% at the stop using a fast charger and then the car showed 393km range. Previously it showed 383km with 100% charge. Just shows that the chill out driving session immediately affected the estimates.

Only 2KW at 90%... what they got that plugged into 110v plug?
no idea, I have not been over, just saw it on my app, but I suspect its just a basic socket
