The Taycan turns out to be less efficient than the Audi e-tron and Jaguar I-PACE.

The 2020 Porsche Taycan Turbo version officially received an EPA range rating, but it's quite disappointing as the range barely exceeds 200 miles (320 km), while energy consumption is through the roof.

The Porsche Taycan Turbo is able to go 201 miles (323.4 km), which is far short of the 381-450 km (237-280 miles) WLTP rating.

The range is low, despite the reasonable 93.4 kWh battery, as the Taycan fails on the efficiency side with the combined result of 488 Wh/mi (303 Wh/km). That is worse than the two least efficient models: Audi e-tron and Jaguar I-PACE.

The 69 MPGe (or 49 kWh/100 miles) rating includes charging losses.
