We have already seen the Taycan Turbo and Turbo S models and now we have the Taycan 4S, the car comes with 390 kW or 530 PS (about 523 horsepower).
Breathtaking acceleration, tractive power typical of sports cars and outstanding continuously available power – the new model 4S also features these strengths of the Taycan. The permanently excited synchronous machine on the rear axle has an active length of 130 millimetres and is therefore exactly 80 millimetres shorter than the corresponding drive component on the Taycan Turbo S and Taycan Turbo.
