Porsche Taycan 2024: facelift incoming with faster charging and more power


The Taycan for 2024 has become a little bit slicker with refined styling, new LED lights and bigger battery option among the key changes 

Porsche Australia has announced pricing and specification for its updated 2024 Taycan electric car.

Pricing is set to start from $175,100 before on-road costs for the base Taycan, with the range-topping Taycan Turbo S priced from $374,200 before on-road costs. 

This means that the price of entry for a Taycan has now increased by $10,700 compared to the 2023 base Taycan.

The Taycan will remain to be available in standard and Cross Turismo wagon bodystyles, however the Taycan Sport Turismo variant will not be available in Australia. 

The updated Porsche Taycan is expected to land in Australian showrooms from mid 2024.

The Taycan competes against its related cousin, the Audi E-Tron GT, as well as the BMW i5 and the Mercedes-Benz EQE.

What’s changed for the Taycan in 2024?

Porsche has introduced several changes to the Taycan for 2024.

On the design front, the Taycan now gains new-look headlights and tail lights, along with revised front wings and a new three-dimensional Porsche logo at the rear. An accent colour called Turbonite will make the Turbo and Turbo S variants stand out from the rest of the Taycan range.

Porsche’s Taycan with its 800-volt architecture can now be charged at speeds up to 320kW (up 50kW than before).

An optional Performance Battery Plus pack has increased to a gross figure of 105kWh, which the German brand claims will offer an electric range of up to 587km. 

The base Taycan has also seen a power increase (up 60kW to 300kW), while the flagship Turbo S now produces a staggering 700kW when launch control is activated.

All Taycans now come fitted with adaptive air suspension as standard.

Porsche has managed to strip weight out of the Taycan for 2024, specifically 15 kilograms, even though it now features a higher level of specification. 

Inside the cabin of the Taycan, a new driving mode switch is now installed on the steering wheel as standard, while new displays also feature. A passenger screen is available as an optional extra.
