Explained: Why Porsche Made The Least Efficient Electric Car

Porsche Tesla

The 2020 Porsche Taycan Turbo has the lowest MPGe rating of all current 2019 and 2020 model year electric cars in the United States according to the EPA. For gasoline supercars, efficiency doesn’t really matter, and fuel economy is often pitiful. However, with today’s current battery technology, electric car efficiency is extremely important regardless if it’s an economy car or a supercar.

Porsche enthusiasts may not be worried about the energy bills or even the 201 mile range of their brand new electric car, but there are metrics about inefficiency that are hard to ignore for any enthusiast. This video will also compare the Porsche Taycan’s battery strategy to the Tesla Model S. Differences in battery strategy also lead to differences in brake pedal, accelerator pedal, and regenerative braking strategies between the two cars, which will be discussed in the video.
