2021 Porsche Taycan and Macan Launched in India

2021 Porsche Taycan and Macan Launched with Better Features

2021 Porsche Taycan and Macan Launched

Talking about the Taycan first, it undercuts the Audi e-tron GT by quite a margin as the range starts from Rs 1.5 crore ex-showroom. Talking about the performance, the Taycan comes with two battery pack options - 79.2kWh battery with single electric motor and 93.4kWh battery with dual electric motors. The top-tier Taycan Turbo S is the most powerful Porsche on sale with 761PS of power and a claimed 0-100 km/h sprint time of 2.8 seconds. On the other hand, the base-spec rear-wheel-drive only Taycan delivers a claimed range of 484 km and offers upto 476PS with overboost feature.

Porsche is yet to release the prices of the Taycan 4S, Taycan Turbo and Taycan Turbo S. The base-spec Taycan undercuts the e-tron GT by a fair margin but it’s worth noting that the e-tron GT comes with a bigger battery pack and Quattro as standard. Coming to the 2021 Macan, we get to see some subtle changes and a minor nip and tuck for the interiors. On the exteriors, the new Macan gets a new redesigned grille flanked by new LED headlights.

On the inside, the new Macan gets touch based controls that replace the old cluttered array of buttons covering the length of the centre console. Other than that, we get the big central touchscreen that sports various connectivity apps. On the powertrains front, the Macan comes with two engine options - 2.0-litre turbocharged petrol and 2.9-litre turbocharged V6 petrol engine. Both the engines come mated to the slick-shifting PDK gearbox and AWD as standard. The Macan range starts from Rs 83.21 lakh ex-showroom. Porsche will soon reveal the prices of the Macan S and Macan GTS models along with the rest of the Taycan range as well.
