Tesla Model 3 Space Interior Vs Porsche Taycan

Tesla Model 3 Space Vs Porsche Taycan, A video showing one of the Porsche’s Taycan prototypes gives an overview of the Tesla interior space of the German carmaker’s electric sedan. While still in disguise, that is enough to prove that in terms of interior space, the Taycan is more similar to the Tesla Model 3 than the Model S.

YouTube fans can take a closer look at the disguised Taycan prototype. Just like other reviewers who have interacted with the vehicle, Thomas was impressed with Taycan’s driving ability, which the company specifically designed to be as exciting as their other iconic creations such as the legendary 911. Reviewers also added that in terms of size, the Taycan is expected to be slightly smaller than the Panamera, Porsche’s main seat.

A large number of reviews involve views of the interior space of all future electric vehicles. Based on footage taken on the hidden interior of the Taycan, there seems to be plenty of space for passengers in the front, although similar to other vehicles in the company line, the seats look relatively low. The Taycan back seat looks like another story, as it looks a bit cramped. The head space in the back seat also looks quite adequate.

It should be noted that the Taycan prototype featured in the survey is an undercover unit, which means that some aspects of the vehicle may change in the production version. Taycan production roofs may not be as simple as prototypes, for example, and this could result in better rear seat head space. Even so, it can still be seen that the overall space at the rear of the Taycan prototype appears to be smaller than the Tesla Model S, the vehicle is considered its main competitor.

The Porsche Taycan has spent several years in development, and during that time, has been framed as a vehicle that can challenge the Model S, which has made waves in the large premium sedan market. Given that Porsche already owns the Panamera, it is understandable that the company made the Taycan simpler than its four large seats. Unfortunately, this strategy will likely make the Taycan interior space more similar to the Tesla Model 3, which is more affordable.

However, while the rear of the Taycan is not as wide as the Tesla S Model, the vehicle is likely to play a major role in the electrification of the Porsche line of vehicles. The carmaker, however, is not a mass market brand, which means that Taycan, instead of attracting customers from Model S or Model 3, tends to attract potential car buyers from internal combustion engines. And for companies like Porsche that have sworn to diesel, Taycan features, from driving dynamics to the interior, could be part of a long-term plan.

Porsche Taycan

Usually this is the part where we slip for a moment, trying to put the intended car into some context before we really get caught up in the pressing question that exists – is it really that good?

But we will not waste time with things here, so let me explain this one faster for you: Porsche now has an electric car, a very fast and very smart Taycan (that’s Thai-Khan, btw). And for companies built on the long history of conventional horsepower, this is a huge problem.

So can the Taycan lead the electric charge for the Porsche? Let’s find out.

1. Design
Like most members of the larger Porsche family, this all has to do with angles. On the front or back, it looks very nice, with tunnel-style headlights that appear to grow on both sides of the lid.

Even so, I guess it has no translation, and it looks like it does a little bit. After all, beauty and looks and all that. Don’t shut up, right?

Thankfully, the Taycan were not a million years away from the Vision E concept unveiled in 2015. The hinged rear door was missing (Porsche says it had to include pole b for rigidity of the structure, and once they did, the idea was largely futile.).

However, Taycan is a product that looks great and premium from Porsche, and a product that is not too far from traditional guidelines. In fact, apart from the charging cover, you may find it difficult to recognize it as an EV at all.

There is a continuous light strip on the back of the car, with the Porsche logo with glass letters, and many active aerodynamic features, such as the front cover and rear spoiler, which keep the electrical appliances cool, as well as the brakes.

Inside, however, the Taycan really advanced the German brand interior games, as the cabin no longer looked like a cabin covered with glue and thrown into a large bunch of buttons.

Instead, almost everything is digital, from the curved display behind the steering wheel to the secondary control screen – located below the multimedia screen in the center of the dashboard – and giving you access to air conditioning and volume control settings. .

In fact, while the abundance of this technology makes the interior feel more modern, it does not make it more user-friendly, with tasks that require milliseconds while using buttons or wheels to take longer to try. access the menu via screen, some of which are true touchscreen while others provide haptic feedback.

Another point in the interior. The Turbo we drive feels much more premium than the Turbo S, which replaces the last basic gray trim for brown leather wraps, and carbon fiber elements with more expensive wood details. So, determine your Taycan carefully, my friends.

2. Machines and Trans

Ah, now we will discuss interesting things. Of course there is no traditional engine / transmission combination here. In contrast, Taycan offers a large number of electrical charges based on instructions.

There are two “continuous enthusiastic” electric motors here, one positioned on each axle, although the latter can be separated to allow the Taycan to run the motor in the FWD just to maximize distance.

The engine delivers a combination of 460kW in both Turbo and Turbo S, but you can unlock more power (in a blast of 2.5 seconds) when using the launch control. How much extra power, of course, depends on how much you put in.

Turbo will give you 560kW and 850Nm (enough to run up to 100km / h in 3.2 seconds fast. But using the launch control on Turbo S increases the output to a surprising 560kW and 1050Nm, so sprint time is fast. 2, 8 seconds The quarter mile is also impressive; 11.1 seconds on Turbo and 10.8 seconds on Turbo S.

Helping with that time is the fact that the gearbox on the rear axle is actually a two-speed unit, with the first gear only used for acceleration, and only when Sport or Sport Plus mode is activated.

Porsche also launched an 800 volt architecture, which is said to reduce charging time and allow for more sustainable performance by reducing heat loss. And this is what makes the Taycan “loop” possible, especially when launch controls are started: “You can do it for as long as you want,” said Mayk Wienkotter Porsche. “We said it more than 10 times, but we found most drivers who give up first.”

Tesla Model 3

Forget the Volkswagen Beetle – could the Tesla Model 3 be the new People’s Car?

I will leave you to combine the points between the two men behind the two vehicles, but the Tesla Model 3 is the first ‘affordable’ EV from a well-known US brand.

Relative capabilities, of course – and we want to know if the entry class variant – Model 3 Standard Range Plus – is the Tesla you should buy.

1. Design

I like that wheel. Love them. LOVE THEM. They are futuristic but somehow retro as well. And the fact that they work well because it helps reduce aerodynamic traction. Plus, it’s smaller than a sporty car (18s versus 20s).

The rest of the car? Ummm, I like the elements – the glasses are attractive, the side profile is fun, and the back is reminiscent of the Model S, but not imitating. Forward? I have no character in my eyes, and for everyone on the CarsGuide test team as well.

You may want to check out my Model 3 Performance review for reference here – because the cars we had in the test were badly put together. This base model car is slightly better, with a more acceptable panel gap and fit / finish, though still not as uniform as you would see from one of the German luxury brands.

The Tesla interior quality is also slightly better in this Model 3 example, but the fact that there is still a level of difference between cars can be a concern for people who care about quality. Like me. I worry about quality.

Tesla accidentally kept the Standard Range Plus battery pack and power output secret, but our research shows that this variant rear wheel powertrain consists of a 55kWh battery pack and an electric motor capable of producing 225kW – but at the time of writing, Tesla declined to confirm output from the Model class. 3. It has a single speed transmission (reduction gear).

Standard Range Plus has a time of 0-100km / hour quoted from 5.6 seconds. It is capable of reaching a top speed of 225km / h.
