It is pictured to be the most important car since it is the first electric car that is much more hyped and will provide a whole new level of excitement to the users. Even though Tesla has dominated the electrical car market for a countless number of years, the 2020 Porsche Taycan will provide a whole new level of experience, which will be much higher than Tesla in the process. The reviewer in the video claimed to provide a glimpse of all the features and quirks of this new car and made sure to find out the truth about the hype.

The individual in the video started with an overview by pulling in the Tesla Model S car, which was launched in 2010, and immediately became an overnight sensation. He also said that people who wanted and were crazy for high-tech smartphones and laptops were looking forward to getting their hands on the newest high-tech car as well. Even though there were so many new high-tech cars available in the market, the Tesla fans did not even notice the presence of the Audi Etron and the Jaguar I-pace, where it does not provide the excitement and hype, according to how Tesla commands.
Then came the 2020 Porsche Taycan, which was first announced by Porsche as a concept car in 2015 and was named Mission-E. Many people showed a good deal of interest about the vehicle during those times. However, when Porsche announced that it will go into a product, there was a huge rush from the sides of Porsche dealers to place a good deal of orders in the process. However, when comparing the design of the Taycan you will come to notice that there is a good deal of similarities with Mission-E concepts, and the Taycan is currently available in four different versions.
The first is the 4s that is of 520 horsepower, 4s with a battery upgrade with 560 horsepower, then is the Turbo that is of 670 horsepower, and lastly the king the hill is Taycan Turbo S with a 750 horsepower, respectively. Rather than that, the Taycan Turbo S also carries a 775 pound-feet of torque and can do from 0 to 60 within 2.6 seconds. Gradually, all these things will come at a price that too a hefty one as well.
Therefore, the 2020 Porsche Taycan Turbo S stands at a price range of $185,000 with the same range as of 4S. However, the other two Taycan do offer a good deal of range but it does not get up there, as they do not cross over 300 miles as it means, it is not much close to Tesla where the long-range Tesla Model S provides 370 miles. However, the Taycan has many more things in hand to provide than the numbers and the individual in the video said he will provide all the quirks and features of the car and take out for a test drive in the process.
The features of 2020 Porsche Taycan
Firstly, starting with the door handles that are places inwards, and to open it, you must get your hands beneath the door handle and pull it slightly to open it. Therefore, when you find that the door handle is pushed a little outside, it indicates that the car is unlocked and to lock it, all you need to tap on the handle and it will automatically push inwards. This will allow the car to be locked in the process and also take the help of the key to lock and unlock your 2020 Porsche Taycan as the key has a design that is pretty looking and the key has this unique feature at the top where a light blinks to confirm whether the vehicle is locked or unlocked in the process.
Therefore, when you wish to open things and stuff in the 2020 Porsche Taycan, the door of the car is no way near to the charge port, which is located just beside the door. To open the charge port, it cannot be pushed inwards or controlled with a key. There is a black piece protruding right beside the charge port that plays its role as the sensor. All you need to do is slide your hand just below the sensor and the charge port will immediately pop open and go into the fender rather than hanging outside, which looks pretty ugly. The closing process is also the same as the opening one.
Moving on to the next feature and this time it is inside the 2020 Porsche Taycan and starting with the start button which can be found in the left of the steering. Porsche has a good deal of history and records of putting the starting button on the left, and the legacy can be seen in the electric cars as well. Therefore, in this latest model, the starting button is designed as an on/off button that you will find in computers and typical the old-school style of buttons, and one of the best thing about the car rather than the on/off switch is the gear lever that falls to the right of the steering wheel.
It is small and is the same as the Porsche 911 gear lever but the only difference is that the gear level for Porsche 911 is mounted in the middle. The interiors of the 2020 Porsche Taycan have two cup holders instead of one and also has a storage space just beside the second cup holder, where you can store personal stuff. The storage space also has a portable charger, which can be seen inside the storage space. The other feature that is much more important than the cupholder in the 2020 Porsche Taycan is the center screen that has a series of basic vehicle commands, which is used frequently. Unlike the other touch screen, in this car, you have to press it very hard to receive a response.
Overall, all the features of this new car from Porsche are outstanding and unique which will provide you with the best performance and a superb experience.
