How To Charge The Porsche Taycan: Deep Dive

In this video, we'll cover everything you need to know about charging the Porsche Taycan. It's a comprehensive review that also explains basic EV charging so even the novice can understand.

We know it's a long video, and that's because we went for thoroughness over brevity since most Taycan owners are experiencing electric car charging for the first time and don't have any experience charging an EV.

We realize we should have talked a little more about level 2 charging times.
Using the Mobile Charger or Mobile Charger Connect:
About 10 hours to fully charge the Taycan from zero with the 93.4 kWh battery
About 8.5 hours to fully charge the Taycan from zero with the 79.2 kWh battery
If you have a higher-powered (11 kW) Level 2 charger like the ChargePoint Home Flex and Enel-X Juicebox that we demonstrated in the video, your charging time should be roughly 1 hour less than if you used Porsche's Mobile Chargers.
