Porsche Taycan Saloon (2019 - )

The mainstream industry has been slow to respond to Tesla’s challenge but, in the case of the Porsche Taycan, it’s arguably been worth the wait. Rather than electrify an existing SUV, saloon or coupe the Taycan is something new in its own right – a four-door, all-electric sports car that radically reinterprets Porsche’s values for the electric age. Stylish, fast, fabulous to drive and hugely desirable, it’s the EV to be seen in.

Our expert review

See what Rory Reid and the team think about this car

No surprises, the Taycan is a very, very expensive car to buy. The line-up currently comprises 4S, Turbo and Turbo S, with only the 4S sneaking in at less than £100,000 thanks to a smaller battery and (relatively) dialled back performance. In the Porsche style you can upgrade it with the bigger battery from the Turbo and Turbo S if you want, there being plenty of encouragement to swell the asking price via the extensive options list and futureproof your car with the extras required to maintain its residual value. Porsche also charges for cables and other equipment you may need so factor in some 'set-up costs' as well.

With the painful part out of the way you can enjoy the fact running a Taycan is actually going to be relatively cheap. Porsche residual values are typically strong and demand will be high, meaning finance costs should be attractive. And the many tax incentives for electric vehicles include zero ’road tax’ and (for now) Benefit In Kind for company users, meaning those owners could save thousands compared with regular luxury cars.

The performance demands mean the battery will always be hungry for charge and it won’t be free to ‘fuel’, though it’ll be a lot cheaper than any internal combustion engined car with comparable performance. If, indeed, there are any.
