A Porsche Taycan almost covers 1,900 mi in just 24 hours
The German sedan sets a new world record
Travelling long distances in a short period of time is a relatively complex task for an electric car as it is necessary to plan several stops for recharging. These stops can be particularly time-consuming depending on the vehicle and the infrastructure used.
It is therefore interesting to see which car can cover the greatest distance with the most suitable charging stations. The team from the German magazine Auto Motor Sport gives us some answers with the Porsche Taycan. The latter has just beaten the world record previously set by the Tesla Model 3.
In its basic rear-wheel drive version, the German car covered a distance of 3,036 km (1,886 mi) in 24 hours, surpassing the American car with its 2,781 km (1,728 mi). The weather conditions during the attempt were far from ideal, with an average temperature of 11°C (52°F) and sometimes heavy rain.
The use of heating and, above all, demisting was therefore necessary to continue the test in peace. The average electricity consumption was 39.4 kWh/100 km (1.59 mi/kWh) and the average speed was around 127 kph (79 mph). 30 charging stops were necessary and the car recharged for 4 hours and 48 minutes.
