The Taycan has a lot of luxury items such as insulation, thicker glass panels, etc. etc. so it's already 400+ pounds heavier than the tesla. It also has a slightly smaller capacity battery and the 12% reserve as you mentioned. If it has the same size battery, unreserved battery capacity and 400 pounds less weight, I believe the range would be similar. I also suspect the Tesla has a better battery management program.

I would still buy a Panamera Hybrid over a Taycan simply for it's superior range and quick fueling. It's still incredibly quick!
0-60MPH in 2.9 seconds until the tires are bald or you run out of fuel.

The Taycan epitomizes why I'm against tax subsidies for these vehicles. It feels very wrong that even the poorest taxpayers have to help obviously very wealthy people pay for their 2nd, 3rd, or 4th vehicle. IMO there should be a limit on the price of an EV that receives tax subsidies. A low limit (thinking $30k) at that.

Especially when it's really just promoting Chinese sourced batteries.

Jason believes the Taycan is theoretically faster.
